Default World’s First 3D Printed Metal Gun, 1911DMLS


Austin, TX – Solid Concepts, one of the world leaders in 3D Printing services, has manufactured the world’s first 3D Printed Metal Gun using a laser sintering process and powdered metals. The gun, a 1911 classic design, functions beautifully and has already handled 50 rounds of successful firing. It is composed of 33 17-4 Stainless Steel and Inconel 625 components, and decked with a Selective Laser Sintered (SLS) carbon-fiber filled nylon hand grip. The successful production and functionality of the 1911 3D Printed metal gun proves the viability of 3D Printing for commercial applications.

Awe man! Technology has struck again! Now the anti-gunners are going to have to think up a whole new mess of laws to prevent people from using it!

I remember back in the early 1980's when Gaston Glock came out with his polymer pistol and the anti gunners were apoplectic over the idea that this new technology would be completely invisible to X-Ray and metal detectors. My family was among them (though I had already started on my journey to the "Dark Side" of firearms). Many years later after I had purchased my first Glock I showed it to them after reminding them of those conversations back in the 80's and then stripped it down and demonstrated how absurd the ideas they had were.
