The Full-Auto Fiasco Affair
The firearm that came to be associated with the '60s T.V. show "Man From U.N.C.L.E." proved to be a challenge to make both from a mechanical, as well as a legal standpoint.
The U.N.C.L.E. Special Affair
Amidst the drove of "Man From U.N.C.L.E. fans out there, some are even producing the components required to build a functional firearm that looks and feels like the famous prop.
The Friend From U.N.C.L.E. Affair
Having the proper firearm and the correct parts will merely get you a replica of the U.N.C.L.E. Special. Thankfully, in the process of scrounging for parts I met someone who not only helped me source the parts, he helped me figure out how to make everything function properly.
The Parts, Parts Who's Got The Parts Affair
Advice from a fellow fan of "Man From U.N.C.L.E." helped me learn more about the iconic show prop and find sources for the various components needed to make a filly functional firearm.

Having an aesthetically correct U.N.C.L.E. Special is one thing, if it is incapable of reliably sending rounds downrange each time the trigger is pulled—well, then you're left a cool-looking paperweight.
The Bob Or Not To Bob Affair

Completing of the pistol portion of my U.N.C.L.E. Special brought with it a sense of having reached the half-way point of a long journey—a year-long one—but then again time does fly when you're having fun, especially when both the research and results are so rewarding. But, celebration was premature since there was more work to be done.
The High-capacity Affair
In its carbine configuration, the U.N.C.L.E. Special boasts a higher-capacity magazine that extends generously past its grip. Fortunately, they weren't hard to find.
The Potential Problem Affair
A picture is worth 1000 words, but it's also the source of at least one potential problem—or is it? Perhaps so, on the other hand perhaps not. Allow me to explain.
