Wood is easier to work with than metal. So why not make a homemade gun out of wood? Yes. It won’t last nearly as long and it will be susceptible to moisture if you don’t treat the wood correctly. But wood stocks have been used on guns for hundreds of years. People are making complete guns out of plastic. Why not make an AR-15 lower made out of wood?
I didn’t come up with idea and I haven’t tried it. But someone else is trying it:
- the holes are trued, and a solution to the issue of pins presents itself …. progress notes on the “plywood gun” …. “jj’s brit” in .284″ caliber ….
- short work on bolts w/ the dremel tool …. progress notes on the “plywood gun” ….
- it’s very crowded …. but, i have good sear alignment, and good sear engagement …. progress notes on the “plywood gun” ….
