It was time for something different than another suppressor. An approved form 1 = a stainless steel pen gun.
All parts were made from scratch (other than two springs). I made an offset captured firing pin and striker assembly. Barrel is 416 stainless from a green mountain blank, everything else is 304 stainless. I still need to blast the whole thing for a nice finish.

Ready to fire



Offset firing pin

Why?

I ask because I almost shot myself in the face one night at work with a 22mag that looked like a lighter. The suspects kept reaching for it, I grabbed it and asked him why he wanted this so bad, just as I was pointing it at my face and about to click the lighter on he screamed. I stopped an he said "man you're about to shoot yourself." Then he explained that the Bic lighter was converted into a zip gun and would fire 2 shots and that at 5-10 yards would have a 10 inch spread. I was a little sick to my stomach later that night

Honest answer is because I can and I wanted to build something different. I understand your story but I highly doubt that was a registered AOW based on the guy whom had it. I like designing random things and my passion is guns. I was very unimpressed with the few pen guns I found on the NFA market since they fired like an open bolt without a closed breach.
About 70% of the project cost was the tax stamp

I have a .38 pen gun that my grandfather carried during WWII. I'll try to get a pic next time I'm at the ranch.

Don't you know the first rule of lighter handling? Never point a lighter at something you don't intend to burn.

You may think about making a captive secondary sear shelf just before the firing pin start coming out of the breach face. This will ensure that if the pen is dropped in the uncocked position it can't go off, and it will also prevent the firing pin from touching the primer unless the trigger is held down.

It would also be possible to add a sliding safety to it.

I think it's cool and applaud you for having the skills and patience to build it.

That said I agree with NP, I'd probably shoot myself in the chest with it.

Looks like the first model is off to a good start. A person with a lathe is only limited by time and money.
