Default 3-D printed rifle makes news

Upgraded 3-D-Printed Rifle Shoots 14 Times Before Breaking | Fast Company | Business + Innovation

I think the field of 3-D printing has endless possibilities. But for making a weapon right now it needs more tweaking. But still amazing what someone can do with a high tech printer these days.

Since the Republicans caved without even a whimper over the "plastic gun" deal, 3D printed guns will be exclusively limited to government. Possession of a 3D printer and "weapons grade" plastic will be subject to fines, penalties and prison time, just like NFA "constructive possession".

Zip guns can be made pretty easy and it is hard to unevent something.

This is a good development.
Hopefully the enemies of our republic will always be behind the technology curve

Durnburnit, I want to get Me several of the AR-15 poly lowers, before the buggers outlaw them too.
I`m hoping they get the polys in a .308 developed real soon too.
