Basic metal working skills are helpful in making the BlueSniper rifle. But if you don't feel confident working with metal, students at any high school or college metal shop will often be more than happy to help for a small fee. This is a good idea because they will get much needed practice, and often these shops will have metal scraps lying around, so you might not have to pay for some materials.

Here are the tools needed

  • Drill Press
  • Saw
  • Welder
  • Soldering Iron
  • Sander - Mechanical is nice, but hand-sanding is acceptable.
