“Download this gun”: 3D-printed semi-automatic fires over 600 rounds


quote:

“This is the first publicly printed AR lower demonstrated to withstand a large volume of .223 without structural degradation or failure,” Wilson wrote on Wednesday. “The actual count was 660+ on day 1 with the SLA lower. The test ended when we ran out of ammunition, but this lower could easily withstand 1,000 rounds.”

Already, he says, over 10,000 people have downloaded the lower CAD file, with more on BitTorrent.

Check out the .zip file. I was very surprised at some of the CAD files in there. Things like DIAS.

How long before the IRS is crawling up Defense Distributed's arse in order to try to disqualify their 501(c)(3) status?

That's awesome, great technology.

Just curious what does it cost to produce something like this (not procuring the system) just using it.

The guy with DD said that right now it costs them about $100 to make one 30 round magazine.

When did this happen? A month or so ago they said it was not yet feasible to print a fully working semi-automatic rifle.

If that's true, then that is amazing!

That's with his machine. If you bought a Replicator it would cost you a tiny fraction of that.

There are people on DefCad.org that say it costs them less than $10 to print the AR lower.

So it's a fully working semi-auto? Am I understanding this correctly?

Yes but just a printed lower and magazine (for now)

Awesome!

Isn't the lower the most difficult part to actually develop? The barrel shouldn't be too difficult, right?

The gov't will ban this soon, or will they? You folks are going to sit around and let that happen?
