DIY .45ACP home-built pistol actually hits the target (VIDEO)

Backyard weapon designer Royal Nonesuch has perfected his RN45, a break-action single-shot Liberator style pistol in .45ACP. Well, perfected enough for him anyway.

The gun is made from a rifled barrel he bought off eBay for $20, a paintball gun marker trigger group, and some odds and ends.

He’s been working on the RN45 for a minute and finally decided to add some sights to it, plugging most targets at 7 yards and moving back to 40 yards to fire in the general direction of some silhouette targets.

“It’s still probably more accurate than Glock…” he says.
