Very cool ...

Ony thing he "made" with the the printer was the bare lower. Can't do springs or steel parts. Also have serious doubts about the .223 upper, sicne the 22s dont have (or need) a buffer.

Incomplete info here....

And for the other side of the coin....

It is not a MIM product!

if its printed what exactly is it made of??

JigSawer40 07-26-2012 06:34 PM

I find that hard to believe. How does it know how to make the inner works?

You still managed to waste your time by leaving a comment. Time well saved indeed. ;)

Great alias BTW - Opps, more wasted ----

OK the original link I posted was very vague. It appears that the guy only printed the lower receiver. It is made out of plastic. However the internals are off the shelf...... If you think about it that's the only part that is regulated by BATF.


Here is the link to the forum
