@gungasnake,
Leave it to Gunga to think a 3D cad drawing is a real gun.

@gungasnake,
Yes; the point is to take "gun control" out of the hands of government,
where it never shoud have been in the first place, considering the Bill of Rights.
This is proceeding a lot faster than I thought it woud.

OK. Thay are hitting targets' bulls' eyes from about 1OO feet away.

The 3 D guns are metal now, not plastic.

@OmSigDAVID,
The article is of limited interest to US citizens who can own M16s legally.

But this idea should be of some real interest to Europeans who have been sold out by their own ruling classes. In the states at least, the serial number for an M16 is on the lower receiver; you can buy upper receivers with barrels all day long on gunbroker, no questions asked. 2 + 2 = ........

Perhaps you should do some research David.
Heck, you can own the gun for the cost of printing it.
http://blogs.computerworld.com/emerging-technologies/23303/need-last-minute-christmas-gift-howabout-12000-3d-printed-gun.
You will notice they actually printed it with a S/N and are probably licensed as a Federal gun manufacturer otherwise they wouldn't be posting pictures and offering to sell it without risking arrest under Federal gun laws..

Here are the firing tests.

No one will be making 3D metal guns on a home printer any time soon since the printers currently cost over a half million dollars.

Get a couple hundred guys together in some neighborhood in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, or England, and they might could afford it.

But you're right, Americans don't need it and would be highly unlikely to spend the money for it.

@olafragnarson,

You say you're reading this from Sweden?

You'll need a few springs and odds and ends which you can't just print:

The place to buy the upper receivers and barrels is this:

@gungasnake,

Sure because the US doesn't have any export laws on gun parts and Sweden wouldn't have any import laws on such parts either.

Thanx for the research, Mr. Parados.
I loved it.
The mfgrs. are in the same stages of development as the Wright Bros. at Kitty Hawk.
We need to be patient. As Ronald Reagan used to say: "Progress is our most important product."

I am very optimistic. In the words of Karen Carpenter: "We 've only just begun".
The idea is to physically take practical, real-world jurisdiction of guns
for defensive freedom OUT of the hands of government
and put it into the hands of any Individual citizen. It looks very good.

The obsolete concept of gun control will be forgotten as less than a joke-in-bad-taste.

Again: thanks for the research and Merry ` Christmas!

@rajeeshD,

You say you're totally fed up with reading about 80,000 of your countrymen being killed by cobras and other poisonous snakes every ****ing year?

See the note to Olaf above...

No, not really.

The concept of CAD 3d printing is well past the Wright Brothers. It's been going on for 30 years.

The concept of lasers is well past the Wright Brothers. They've been used to melt metal for almost 50 years.

3D metal modeling simple combined the two. It isn't going to get cheaper any time soon because it still requires accuracy that can't be achieved with cheap knock off printers.
