What gets me is how the liberal fascists ignore sling shots which can F up a person just as much as a gun. Or bow and arrows, which can kill you just as easily as a gun. It tells me this is not about killing to the liberal fascists but more about dismantling the constitution.
So many good angles to this story!
“Theres a version of this type of printer that makes metal objects from powdered metal.”
Sintered aluminum makes a barrel that is, if anything, less capable of withstanding stress than extruded plastic.
1. I’ll take my chances with a dangerous gun in order to protect myself and loved ones from a dangerous criminal. I won’t take this gun to the range for sport shooting.
2. Printed guns will improve, just like all new technology. The Wright brothers’ first flight lasted 3 seconds. The first car wouldn’t qualify for the Indy 500.
Its only silly because I can make one thats better from old plumbing leftovers, and it will never blow up.
Free zip guns have been around for as long as there have been guns.
But, zip guns are clumsy, prone to accidental discharge, and slow to reload.
That's why I'm thinking that combining a 3D-printed action with some plumbing pipe might make for something that is actually functional.
Aluminum isn’t the only thing they can use for that. There’s a sintered steel and sintered titanium option out there now.
Everybody agrees they only last so many rounds, and I assume one would really not want to be holding it when it fails.
You're right, but as a former mechanical engineer, I wouldn't have expected a plastic gun barrel to survive a single test-firing.
So if plastic guns are already surviving 9 test-firings, it's not unreasonable to expect them to be safe and practical soon.
The environmentally friendly barrel plastic can be recycled making it acceptable to a large segment of the leftists that place environmental ideology over anti gun ideology
>>Thats why God invented gun oil...
...and Sand Casting.
“Full auto battery shooting air gun 600 rounds per minute “
3/4” pipe = 12 gauge
1/4” pipe = .22 cal
>>It was a normal thing for kids to do in that era.
That’s because we had parents and grand-parents who’d fought and survived multiple World-Wars and who recognized the progressive wolves sharpening their teeth at the treeline.
I find it amusing that they chose the name “Liberator”, after the Liberator pistol dropped during the resistance in Europe.
The wannabe overlords know the tale as well as we do.
They may have the full auto MP5’s on their myrmidons, but those guys are subject to a well planned ambush with Liberators, and then the resistors have some nice MP5’s as well.
The developers of these guns should name them after gun grabbing politicians....”The Schumer”, “The Bloomberg” and new to the market “The Toomey Gun”.
Will any of them hold up to as much pressure as a piece of plumbing pipe?
The named their AR-15 magazine the "Cuomo" and the AK-47 version the "Feinstein".
There are a great many types of plastics. Some are brittle, while some are quite rubbery. It would be quite easy to print an outside layer of “rubbery” plastic around the hard interior plastic. That way, should the hard plastic fail, there would be no flying shards. This is essentially the same principle used in automobile safety glass (except that the stretchable plastic layer is sandwiched between two hard brittle layers of glass).
Yes. Some of them are being used to MAKE Schedule 40-rated pipe fittings.
I believe there are hybrid plastic/ceramic type materials out there.
Once a durable material is developed to be used in 3d printing....watch out.
