3D printing and Defense Distributed are making great progress. A 600 round lower is certainly usable, and that is the minimum that this design is good for. No one knows what the service life will be.

If the time ever came that this was all that was available, 600 rounds would be more than enough.

I’ve heard about this kind of printing. (Insomnia-Coast to Coast). Last few nights they ran the show of the uber-smarty who kind of explained it.

We are in for some wild tech. Frankly....if everybody has a gun...I’m in. At least we can have a fair fight.

I’m sick of Down Low Barry and Shemale Evitawannabe....it’s getting rather clear they are prepping for cwII.

Sad....But, be prepared.

Don’t tell the US government, or they will want a database and background checks for 3D printers

From a link from the Gun Watch blog:

"Defense Distributed's latest 3D printed AR-15 lower withstood 600+ nearly continuous rounds and still did not fail. Note: A direct gas impingement upper was used, not a piston (which diverts the hot gases out the front of the upper). The lower design was verified using a cheaper 3D printing technology - extruded ABS - and didn't show any signs of damage from shooting at a high rate of fire. 3D printed AR-15 lowers have arrived."

They must have strengthened the areas that failed before and looks like they can fire many more rounds out of the lower before failure.
