Technology is making gun control irrelevant.

Just like making a suppressor is easy, magazines are basically a tin can with a spring. You probably couildn’t even kill someone with an unloaded magazine by throwing it at them. A Tuna Fish can lid is more dangerous.

I’m not really sure why people think this. Yes, it is a neat technology. However in a modern machine shop just about every tool is computer controlled anyway. Hence every part is made in an automated fashion. The only real difference in question is whether a 3D printer capable of sintering metal will be cheaper than a full set of CNC lathe, milling machine, and drill press.

For fifty bucks? I don’t think so. Also, their page says “Made in Austin, TX”. Shouldn’t that read “Published in Austin, TX”?

Interesting side question is, what constitutes a “magazine” under the law. The receiver or frame of a firearm is the firearm is legal firearm, all other parts are not restricted for sale in any way.

So what consitutes a magazine. is a box without feed lips a magazine? Its hard to see how that is enforeable.

Is an extended spring a magazine? That would be a trick, especially if I designed the mag to use external rubber bands, which I could.

Is a 6 round magazine with an extra long follower that fills 80% of the box an illegal mag, based on how you might alter it?

Once 3d printers are commonplace, the printing instructions will probably be purchased, but at $50 a pop, i doubt they will sell many.

Oregon is not all liberals! Located in the small Oregon community of Cornelius, west of Portland and in the Tualatin Valley is the location of Senator Feinstein's worst dream. A company that manufactures weapons with a magazine capacity of 100 rounds!
