I have no problem carrying a gun that I built from parts, in fact, I do so regularly. I assembled this custom CCO using a stainless Colt Combat Commander slide, Storm Lake barrel, Fusion Officer's size alloy frame, 10-8 trigger, Cylinder and Slide hammer kit, and numerous Wilson and Ed Brown pins, parts, etc. And it's a .38 Super.

I've never had a problem with it and feel perfectly safe carrying it.

I've made four guns from scratch (except for the barrel-liners) and I wouldn't use any of them as a carry piece... because they are all single-shots. I've started a project to build a revolver from scratch. Will I carry it? No, because it's a single-action .22.

I can and do carry guns that I have customized, and if I built a gun suitable for self-defense from scratch I might carry that, but I have no plans to do so.

If it has a serial number: YES
No serial number: HELL NO!

If you're involved in a shooting and the powers that be find the gun doesn't have a serial number, there's gonna be a whole lot of questions.

I put this .45 Colt snubbie together from parts and yes, I have carried it.
