She lives in Poland. US laws aren't relevant to her.

Did you read the original post?

Is this illegal/restricted in America, or it's just some sort of taboo?
Anyways, OP is not the only one who is going to read this thread. I am quite confident there is some bad legal information being posted. I feel I have a minimum responsibility as a community member to suggest people not trust the above claims and perform further research from reliable sources.

The forum posted has more technical ideas and information than legal. I do not know of a source of info specific to Polands laws, but physics is the same in Poland as far as I know. I have not looked at any of the home gunsmith forums for a few years, but at one point I was on a few.

JohnWilliamson,
Please understand,I'm not challenging or disrespecting you.
I want to learn if you have something to offer.

If I take some 17-4 and make a 50BMG receiver,or if I build a Hepburn from a kit of castings,or take a raw 1911 casting and build a handgun,just one,for myself,(No,I have not,yet)
Please just give me the text of the law or some source I can verify.

I truly want to remain squeaky clean compliant with the law(USA)
And I would appreciate your help.

That is the simplest look at it I can find.
There are laws, ATFE opinions/rulings, ATFE.
You can always write ATFE a letter requesting clarification.
Advice leading someone to to pursue a legal action is still bad advice, even if it doesn't land them in prison.

If you are looking for resources for homebuilt firearms, I recommend the website weaponsguild.com.

There you will find plans, instructions and details for a number of scratch made firearms from break-open shotguns to sheet metal semi-auto pistols and even some really nice, finely machined examples. They also have a lot of knowledge on home rebuilding of demilitarized parts kits. I am not sure if this is something that is attainable or feasible to do in your country.

'In addition, the making of an NFA firearm requires a tax payment and advance approval by ATF.'
