Skip to comments.3D printed Mag good for 347 rounds, Defense Distributed calls it the "Cuomo"
Posted on 02/09/2013 1:55:41 PM PST by marktwain
The Cuomo (30 round AR-15 magazine) is said to have operated for 342 rounds, two thirds of them full auto. This is a complete redesign over the last prototype.
The video of the test and even the article by wired.com have been reported blocked by various sites.
The design is not available at the site that Defense Distributed has set up for "The Island of Misfit Objects" or DEFCAD .
The design is expected to be made available to the public in a few days.
As reported earlier, the group is also working on a 40 round magazine for firearms that use AK type magazines.

Small world....I took a Cuomo this morning.
This is genius plans, the ability to make an object unbannable because it is too readily available is the perfect answer to the gun grabbers and statists.
Now if I could print ammunition!
It would not surprise me if that came soon, at least to some extent. Printed "brass" may not be reusable for many years, but it could probably be designed to conform to the magazine and more especially the chamber well enough to hold together for one firing. Bullets are easy to cast. All we need are primers and powder, and those are (for now) the bottleneck. Still, I imagine a culture that can put recipes for Meth online and gradually improve them to where the explosion rate is acceptable to druggies can do the same for smokeless powders if the need arises.
(D-NY) Governor Andrew Scumo admitted long ago that he carries a GLOCK
(D-CA) US Senator Diane Feinstein carried a S&W .357Magnum - do you believe she no longer carries a handgun? I have heard her staff (on audiotape) in CA say she prefers a revolver - Does DiFi want that audiotape broadcast and released now to go VIRAL?
(D-NY) US Senator Schmucky Schumer and his (Judge) wife carry handguns
Webb’s staffer was caught carrying Webb’s pistol into his office in DC - no arrests were made
The list is endless
Balaka “Skeeter” Hasan-Obama #2 was very uncomfortable on two (2) occasions at Camp David (for under 5 minutes!) per the guys there.....

Or it supplies them with the motivation to make the bans even more heinous. These stories scare the hoplophobic sheeple into demanding even stronger action to keep “those guns” out of the hands of citizens.
If these geniuses were our friends, they’d be designing the Liberator pistol and carbine for the 21st century. Something that can be cranked out by the hundreds and distributed to the oppressed masses so they can go out and get all the real AR15 mags, ammo, and rifles that they need.
If they were real smart, they’d be designing a 3D printed modern flintlock with a fully enclosed pan for the days when ammmo and primers are banned, or one that uses a “government-approved” 22 LR as the primer in a black powder weapon if they choose to ban all centerfire ammo but leave us the “right” to do target practice and small game hunting.
And they would be keeping their mouths shut about their ability to make throw-away mags.
Maybe they can print you up some decaffeinated coffee.
Lighten up Francis.
The great thing about open source is that everyone has a chance to use and modify it because the information is shared freely.
Hiding in the shadows and keeping secrets is for 3 year old girls, not grown men with rights.
is there some place where I can rent the use
of a 3-D machine?
the only piece I need is a AR lower receiver.
Enjoy your throwaway flintlock. LOL
strong metal lower receiver kits are all over the internet
do a little research
Moochelle says Skeeter has a pre-ignition problemo
You know dam well “they” will shut this down. It’s only a matter of (a short) time.
You could legally 3D print a 3D printer that in turn prints a full automatic.
'They' can't. That's just a fact. They can make laws, but it can't be stopped. No more than booze or weed can be stopped.
Yep, you can outlaw it, but you can't stop it.
Pi doesn't equal 3.0, regardless of what the legislature says.
FU! Cowardice is making throwaway mags while we still have millions of the good steel ones in our possession and planning for the day when we hand all those in so we can start covertly manufacturing new resin ones.
>>Hiding in the shadows and keeping secrets is for 3 year old girls, not grown men with rights.
Grown men with rights don’t give up their steel mags! Or their polymer ones. Courage and innovation is inventing new guns that aren’t just crappy knock-offs of the ones you are planning to give up.

I don't plan on handing ANYTHING in to ANYONE.
I've seen the elephant.
I've said it before, I'll say it again. I will not/do not comply with unconstitutional laws.
Any technology that moves manufacture of useful products (like magazines) closer to the hands of the consumer is something I support.
You can find AR lowers all over the ‘net. It’s not difficult.
You can find AR lowers that aren’t complete - they’re just a chunk of metal with some shaping done to them.
