Have any of you actually seen a “printed” handgun? I suppose they can be fired. Can they be fired more than once without you donating a finger or two?

A company I used to work for was on the cutting edge of 3D printing some years ago, and they could do amazing things. But, the things made were of something like a hard synthetic, and I can’t imagine a pistol made of it. At least a pistol that could be fired safely.

You know a military style assault weapon shoots 3 times faster than the wimpy 9mm rendering it impotent against a 556. You'd be better off using a butter knife.

Also Ar15 will rape your wives, eat your child and and incorrectly file your taxes.

Meh....

I am interested in computers, 3D printing, firearms and most things related.

It is an interesting proof of concept and I guess it could have a use.

I think too many people watch CSI or whatever crime show. Bunch of to do about nothing. One of my daughters was watching the news with me last night asked me what I thought. I said there are umpteen million quality guns in the US. A bad guy doesn't need to go through the hassle of buying a 3d printer, downloading the program, and trying to make his own that might only go bang a couple times.

We have three 3D printers in our Lab at work, one uses liquid media and is the most precise.

The 3D printer is great for rapid prototyping, but once the design is finalized, the items get manufactured from higher quality materials/methods.

I wouldn't want to fire a magazine of ammo thru any gun that came out of one of our printers.

I'd sooner repeat some of Richard Davis' marketing tactics for Second Chance:

Want to make a liberals head explode? Tell them that you are using melted down plastic straws to make a 3d printed gun!

Only illegal reasons come to mind as to why a consumer would want to own and carry a 3D firearm.

What about being a hobbyist? How do you feel about 80% firearms?

My brother and I both experimented with 3d printed AR lowers when they first came about probably 5 years ago. We never had a solid design due to poor quality materials, but the industry has come a long way since then. I'd love to print a couple lowers for .22 ARs or another fun project, but apparently only a criminal would have a reason to do so...

I'd definitely print one of the liberator pistols for [censored] and giggles.
