Two homebuilt revolvers

Here are photos sent in of a pair of homemade revolvers built from the Professor Parabellum DIY .22 Revolver plans.

The version below is chambered in .22lr. A flip down side loading gate was added to the design as an improvement.

Main components shown before final fit & finish:

.22lr cylinder (left) and percussion cylinder (right).

The second gun is a ‘cap & ball’ version of the first which is chambered in .25. It was built as an exercise in demonstrating that a viable firearm can be produced without relying on any firearm components. Staying with the makeshift theme, plastic toy caps are used in place of regular percussion caps in combination with homemade gunpowder. Apparently this version shot accurately despite being smoothbore.

“Friend of mine is working on this, it’s made from the Professor Parabellum .22 plans but he’s modified it to .25 percussion. Barrel is threaded for the silencer. Still not quite finished but apparently it has been fired.”
