Shovel AK

My dad sent me this. Pretty amazing. Kind of reminds me of that video where they went to an arms bazar in pakistan and were building bullets by hand with a hammer. Has some language in the posts so it may be NSFW.

That's pretty awesome. I need to learn how to do that...if nothing else to check it off the "Man List"

For a guy like me who has a hard time squaring a board, that's cool shit right there.

Lol. Ditto. I've always been in awe of guys who could work with metal and make mind blowing shit.

What would REALLY be impressive is if he could make a mini-gun out of a hand trowel.

I saw this the other day and was amazed....I always wished I had whatever it was, to do what guys like this can do. Hell, I rarely work on my own Glock pistols because I have more trust in the fact that I will screw it up than do it right...

amazing thread
thanks

I suspect that I'd be capable of drilling the rivet outta the "D" handle frame and removing it from the wooden shaft. Then I could probably slip it onto an AR buffer tube. That would be the extent of my Shovel gun.

This dude's work is outstanding!

Nice! From his thread...
"it's a beginning, because one night I was drinking with the shovel and contemplating what to do with it."

Amazing.
Also, after looking at that site, I see that guy has done many amazing builds. Very cool stuff and funny to read along.

I'm sticking more to the chemistry side of things. I have almost perfected the formula for turning Guinness into piss. A tad more research.........................

Ayup.

I've made one flintlock by hand (after buying the barrel), but that is a whole new level.

Massive cool.
