Oh man… I sense a plastic wrap ban coming to the UK soon:

haha I love the sketchy feel of this video… white gloves, black gloves… hands only, no talking.  At the time of posting it’s just shy of 1M views!

This same lil creep also made a sharp knife out of spaghetti, then after he tested it he cooked it and ate it.

Thoughts?

The kid is back at it with a throwback design:

1:25 – After seeing that a normal person would probably be like “nah, I don’t think I’ll put that against my shoulder and 8 inches away from my face”  not Royal Nonesuch though.

1:57 – Yea sure he has eyepro, but he might need face pro after seeing that thing in action in the test fire.

2:19 – Oh lawwwwd one handed even.  He didn’t die tho.

3:50 – Now he wants to shoot some shot, so he randomly eyeballs an amount.  What could possibly go wrong? haha oh never mind he didn’t hold onto it this time.  Oh I spoke too soon, he still plans on doing it from the shoulder.

I gotta ask… what are Royal Nonesuch’s qualifications anyways? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) (ref)

Our guy Richie Nonesuch

Royal-Nonesuch-Eye-PatchHe’s saying ~$150 for the kits (he hopes).  As long as the welds are clean, and the safety features aren’t so archaic I see this being a viable business.  Like he briefly touched on in the video, he’s going to need to start a business though so he’s not personally liable if someone gets hurt. His homemade grease gun (shown in the video) actually looks pretty nice, and functions well too.

Thoughts?  Would you buy one of Royal’s simple designs in a DIY kit if they were prettier looking?  Would you buy one anyway even if the welds were cringe worthy? The comments are YouTube are really supportive, so I hope he follows this through and comes correct with the final product.

Innnnnnnnteresting.  A GHOST GLOCK:

Holy, that Spectre artwork is quite possibly the worst logo I’ve ever seen.  Looks like bad tattoo art.  Now that I got that off my chest, once completed this 80% lower will fit fit the Glock full size 9mm and full size .40 slides.  You can pre-order the frame for $135 on the Polymer80 website.  For the price you get the frame, the polymer jib, the drill bits & End-mill bits, and locking block so you can get it done on your drill press.  The areas that need to be milled out to complete this project include: the barrel bridge, top rails of the receiver, and slide guide rails.  The price isn’t terrible I guess, but I really wish they could bring it down around $50 or less.  You can get a factory brand new Glock slide for $200 right now… so obviously this $135 Ghost Glock + your time is just for a fun little project.  Additionally you get the novelty of bragging to others that your Glock is off the books and you finished it on your drill press, which admittedly is pretty damn cool.

They have some legal info including an ATF letter if you care to take a look.

Polymer-80-Spectre-Glock-Lower-Receiver1:54 – My head almost exploded when they said they based the grip for their frame on the 1911 rather than the Glock.  JMB is rolling in his grave, and word from Austria is that Gaston “literally can’t even”.

Thoughts?

This isn’t pretty but it appears to have worked:

Home-Barrel-RiflingCool.  Royal Nonesuch; take notes.  This guy is out-Royal-Nonesuch’ing you at your own game. :P

What kind of sus coil did this man make at the beginning?  Is he bootlegging liquor in his spare time? haha either way it’s a damn nice coil. I skipped through his “making of” video on his page, and it’s really neat how it fills the copper tube up with liquid parafin wax before he bends it. I like this guy’s style. haha nm.. actually he did make a distiller as shown in this video. This guy has some cool talents. 10/10 – would party with.

Thoughts?  This guy needs to accuracy test one of his barrels vs smooth bore.  I’d like to see the results!

JohnnyIShootStuff does a DIY:

chappelle-princeI started off not liking this idea at all until he put the jacket over it… that’s a damn good idea.  I’d zip the jacket up though.

Seems to me like it would work reasonably well to keep snoops and robbers away.  Make sure you use a shitty jacket though… if put it under your Arcteryx Veilance jacket and even the gulliest of thieves is going to spot the quality and nab it.

Thoughts?
