When Bob Stewart of Maadi Griffin was arrested, his mailing lists and all future inquiries were being looked into by the Bad Attitude Toward Freedom organization.

Serbu Arms does make a .50 cal much like the Maadi Griffin. But nobody seems to have any spare parts for the old Maadis.

Unless you want to take a chance of having a fed show up at your door some day, I would not access any sites that take you to Maadi Griffin.

The Reader's Digest version is that Stewart was arrested, the feds moved in and seized control of his business. They took over the ordering department and followed through on people Stewart had addresses for.

By rumor (I never got to ask Mr. Stewart), the feds confiscated all the kits they could find through Stewart's old records.

It ended up with the feds in control of the Maadi Griffin end of the company and Mr. Stewart's family trying to make ends meet off of other non - gun related items on their site.

After Mr. Stewart's conviction and failed appeal attempt, I lost contact with him.

they are avail for download if you are a subscriber on homegunsmith.com.

iirc, its around $35 a yr, but well worth it if your lookking for blans/blueprints, ect.

as was said, you WILL have to make ALL of the pcs from scratch, as they arent made commercially before.

the way i remember the story, the atf decided that these diy kits were more than "80%" finished, so legally needed to be transfered by liscenced ffl's, which is why he got arrested.

I have an original book with the set of blueprints included. Would like to reproduce it if it's not copyrighted or the copyright expired.

And yes, the ATF decided that the partial receiver (though it required finishing, welding, etc.) was a firearm and so Mr. Stewart was put in the Graystone Motel for doing something most of us think is perfectly legal.

I also found the company was defunct. A friend found one of the scanned files of the book on a torrent. The scan is poor, but it's readable.

The Maadi-Griffin is very simple to make. Whoever did the original design had his stuff together. There are only 35 parts, and most of those are pins, springs, or screws. The bolt and receiver can be done with basic machine tools, though a lathe able to chuck a 2" workpiece through the headstock would simplify setup on some operations.

I had the hots to build one a couple of years ago, lost interest when I found milsurp .50 barrels had jumped from $50 to $300+, then I found a rifled 12 gauge blank on Gunbroker a while back. I'd seen Ed Hubel's threads on his "12 Gauge From Hell", and even bored through the original 68-page thread on AccurateReloading.com.

I've just started on the project, but the plan is to resist the urge to change things and stay by the book, other than the minor detail of going from .50 to .720 caliber...

The 12gaFH doesn't have the power or range of the BMG, but heck, it's just a shotgun shell...
