    I'm doing some research on making my own bolt action rifle from scratch, anyone have any good links that I can check out. I own my own cnc shop and have all the equipment to make a rifle, minus the barrel. I tried looking through google, but there isn't much info on custom rifles. I'm looking for diagrams, blue prints, concepts, section views and any other info I can get my hands on. I appreciate any help I can get. Also i'm from calif. and need some advice on gun regulations, and what I need to register it. And whats illegal to have there.

    You might try looking into the sport of benchrest shooting. In their quest for rigid actions they make some one of a kind rail guns. It might not be the action you are looking for but maybe they would know the legalities of making a rifle.

    You'll need to start with a call to the AG. They will get you pointed in the right direction, paperwork wise. You can machine anything you want, but as soon as you make a couple parts that fit together to make a gun, you're outside the law. And that's even if the parts aren't assembled. And don't expect them to make it easy on you, either. :mad:

    Are you wanting to make your action from scratch? If so, you might not find a huge supply of those sorts of resources, because most people with a workable design are going to patent their work and/or produce it.

    Wrongo - you can make a firearm for your own use. Just can't sell it.

    Check out the centerfire discussion forum at www.benchrest.com - some of the machinists there are among the best in the would.
