Defense Distributed is doing a good job of showing how stupid the given premise of proposed anti freedom laws are.

My high cap Glock magazines are steel lined. Not sure how ABS will function without that feature. Flawlessly I hope. I have been looking for a good excuse to get a decent 3D printer. Come to think of it, my Shearer high cap Glock mags are polymer without steel lining and they work well so it will probably work.

I wonder why folks would get a ‘3D Printer’ for this. Mags are nothing but thin metal, base plate, follower, and spring. One would think that basic machine shops could make these. I’ve seen lots of plastic AR mags, one wouldn’t really need machines for those. Just raw material, and moldings for the mag housing, base plate, and followers. Insert spring, and your done.

I could be ignorant here, as I’ve never tried it.

The early Glock magazines were made of plastic, so they are well suited for this process.

The early magazines were, if I remember right, metal lined on 3 sides, with metal feed lips. (Current mags are metal on 4 sides.)

The "problem" with them was that the sides swelled slightly, and they did not drop free. Folks complained, and now they're fully lined.
