View Full Version : VIDEO REVIEW: Home Workshop .50 Cal Sniper Rifle

January 15, 1999, 08:39 PM
This sixty minute turkey is from Paladin Press, and features Bill Holmes. He is billed as the "undisputed master of home-built firearms".
Bwa Ha Ha Ha HA!

The rifle is billed as a "Sniper rifle".
More big laughs here.
If it were hammered in to the ground muzzle first, it just might make a decent fencepost to shoot off of.

The Video' sleeve purports that, "Every aspect of the construction is covered in meticulous detail..."

Do NOT waste your money on this video.
It is a monument to poor machining and gunsmithing practice, bad camera work, shoddy production, bait and switch examples of the work, and all of the worst possible uses of machine tools ever imagined in a High School Shop Teacher's most hideous nightmares.

My pick for the worst way I have spent an hour outside of a Mexican Jail.
