by Lee WilliamsAmericans have been making guns in their homes since before there was a United States of America — but not this American.My gun-building history was nonexistent. I’ve replaced some furniture and muzzle devices on a few AKs, but that’s about it. So, when David from 80% Arms called and said he wanted to send me a pistol build kit to review, I thought he’d called the wrong number. I told him I’d never built any firearms and knew nothing about the process.“Then you’re perfect,” he said. “Give it a try. You might enjoy it.”A few days later the GST-9 pistol kit arrived in the mail — in the mail. There’s something almost nostalgic about getting a gun — albeit an unassembled kit and not a legal firearm – shipped directly to your home.Due to ATF regulations, the router jig and frame rails were shipped separate from the GST-9 frame. ATF’s rules currently require the end user to purchase one jig for every frame they build, and the pistol’s frame rails are only included with the jig. Like everything the ATF does, the rule makes absolutely no sense. However, this will change soon with the release of the GST-9
