    hey there, kinda new here.

    Im building an ESB rifle from scratch. All together it costs about $7.80, so i guess the price cant be beat. You can do it if u have a jigsaw, power sander, and a dremil tool.

    If u want, ill write up the steps to do it and get some pics.

    Scratch Built ESB Rifle


    To start off you will need to get these materials from a hardware store.

    1.5-inch pvc pipe (black)
    1 inch pvc pipe (grey)
    . 5 inch pvc pipe (brown)
    1.5 inch pvc pip connector (blue)
    1.5 inch pvc pipe connector end cap (red)
    .5 inch pvc “t” connectors X 2 (brown outline)
    1 sheet of .25 inch ply wood
    .5 inch connector (green)

    additional materials are paint, rough grit sandpaper, and Elmer’s wood glue

    the tools needed are power sander, jig saw, some form of Vice, power drill

    to get cheap ply wood check your hard ware store to see if there is a discount lumber section. You don’t want to spend 20-30$ and have 16 square feet of un-used ply wood.


    The Stock…

    First trace the shapes given in the blueprints onto the sheet of plywood. To get a good pistol grip you may want to use a toy pistol. To use the toy pistol’s grip cut the pistol in half. Lay the detailed side of the pistol grip away from the ply wood and trace the pistol grip. Once all the shapes have been traced cut them out with the jig saw. Now take the two large pieces and glue them together. These should be the pieces which include the stock, pistol grip, and the rings which connect the pistol to the stock. However, do not cut where the dotted lines appear in the blue prints, those will be cut last.
    Make sure to get plenty of glue between the wood, especially on the edges. Don’t worry about glue leaking out. It can be removed later. Let the glue sit for the required amount of time. While is it is drying you will want to sandwich the two pieces between something. You can lay them on a hard even surface with something like a cinder block on them. Just make sure that they dry in the correct position. If they are not sandwiched together the wood will bend and there will be large gaps in the seal.
    Once the correct amount of time has elapsed for the wood to dry glue on the single stock and single pistol grip. Be sure to glue the same sides at the same time. At this point you should have the two large pieces glued together and one single stock and one single pistol grip glued on one of the sides of the main two large pieces. Repeat the steps for the drying. (Sandwich the wood together)
    Now for the final step, simply repeat the last step. Glue the single pistol grip and single stock onto the opposite side of the main stock. Allow them to dry. What you should have now is two large pieces glued together and a stock and pistol grip on each side. That means four layers of wood for the pistol and stock and tow layers for the rings that connect the pistol and stock.
    Now drill holes into the stock where shown with red dots in the blue prints. Once the holes have been drilled you will need to fit the jigsaw blade inside. Once the jigsaw blade is inside cut along the area which has dotted lines in the blueprints. Be very careful and slow, this is the weakest part of the stock. Once that is cut out you will have a very crude looking stock and pistol grip. Use the jigsaw to clean up the rough edges and add curves to the stock and grip. A picture of the actual Webley will be very helpful. Once that is done sand down everything so it is nice and smooth and all the edges are now curves. Your stock is now finished.


    The Barrel and Scope…


    Painting- To paint these use some chrome and back paint. Lay down about 5 layers of chrome paint on all the parts of the barrel and scope. Then cover everything except the 1 inch barrel in 4 layers of black paint. (car paints are recommended. If using car paints put on two layers of primer)

    This is very simple. The longest piece is going to be the 1 inch pvc tube. Cut the 1.25 inch tube slightly shorter than the 1 inch tube. The 1 inch tube will need to slide into the 1.25. You will want to glue the 1 inch barrel inside the 1.25 barrel. Then put the 1.25 connector onto the 1.25 and place the end cap on the connector. These steps can be seen in the blue prints.

    To make the scope cut the .5 inch barrel into three pieces. Connect them as seen in the blue prints. Now add details to the gun, such as scope blocks of stock detail, pistol grip detail, a trigger and trigger guard.


    once the pictures and blue prints are hosed this will make more sense

    enjoy

    Hey thanks!! THanks for posting the pics too. I hope that the tutorial helps if anyone wants to make probably the cheapest fett rifle.

    The foot...yea. I broke my leg hard core about a week ago playing lacrosse. We were doing one on ones and i was on offense, i did a small dodge and my right foot dislocated, i got all goofed up and the kid playing Defense on my layed a body check, i steped back on the dislocated foot and broke the secondary bone that runs up my shin in half in two places. In the end my toes were point to the side of my knee and my shin bone was jutting out. Very gross.

    thanks for the words guys.
