Everytown: “Emergency! We need to make ***it up!”

I have to say I laughed at this:

And what guns can the terrorists and people with background checks will have at their disposition?

I was unaware that 3D printers were so advances they were actually printing in aluminum, steel and wood! It is a Brave New World.

They are not even trying to appear truthful anymore.

  1. All part of a classic propaganda war- you can trumpet all the lies you want, as long as you print a retraction later. And the retraction can be buried in small type in the legal micetype

    1. There is a lot of post machining and heat treating that goes into a 3-D part to make it work. I did my PhD in “near net shape” prints which means 90% of the way there. To get the surface finish that makes a fun function, you have to machine the printing. Not all metals are printable btw, so I wouldn’t necessarily trust every component of a gun to be printed.

    1. Of course they can. The printer costs $50K-100K. Cheaper to buy a CNC machine, or even buy them from a burglar. (Which they have always been able to do.)

  2. Or you could just buy a firearm with a questionable history from your friendly neighborhood drug dealer, for a price of course.

  3. There’s always everyone’s favorite gas pipe and bedspring (not quite, but close), the Sten.
    Because who doesn’t love a subgun that can be made with hand tools in any garage.

    Same here. Where can I get one of these wonderful 3D wood printing techie devices? I need new wood furniture for my FAL. 😀

    1. The closest that you can get to wood is using a wood-filled filament in a normal fused-deposition printer.

      It’s basically composite deck material.

  5. Why do they show an 80% lower (upper left and lower, second from left)? Why would you print a lower that you then have to finish with other tools and not just print a finished lower?

    And the Ghost Gunner CNC milling machine. Are they saying people print those?

    And sorry to disappoint, but when the printer delivers some parts, it’s not ready to use. “Some assembly required” doesn’t really apply. “Complete assembly required” is more like it.

    With that out of the way, I still believe that an affordable metal printer would be the ultimate game changer.
