    3D printed Glock

    Don't try this at home, folks. It is illegal, and... Well, just watch.

    Presumably the barrel and action are not printed if the handle fell off after 2 shots
    "Hunting and fishing" fucking over licenced firearms owners since ages ago.

    Idjits! But the scary thing is that one day someone will make one strong enough to be used like a real pistol.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Having had quite a lot to do with 3D printers in the early days (used to build them from scratch) there is no way I would have even thought about firing that thing as it looks like the handle is only 2-3 strings thick so simply far too weak for the recoil.

    Really good ones exist and the plans are apparently out there in cyber space they are not called Ghost guns for no reason. I no longer have a 3D printer and I wouldn't make a gun even if I still did.

    I think the correct term for a useful 3d firearm printing machine is 'CNC milling machine'. Alloy and steel win out against hardened plastic string every time

    @veitnamcam - The barrel and slide with a live round in the chamber? Thank goodness it has a trigger safety!

    P.A. Luty wrote a book called "Expedient homemade firearms, the 9mm sub machine gun"

    A simple smooth bore, blow back sub machine gun.
    Simple as, only a drill and a file, hacksaw required etc.

    He wrote it to prove a point to the gun banning assholes out there, and got locked up for his efforts.

    To me that looked like all Glock just a 3d printed frame. Dumb idea either way

    Anybody with a half decent workshop can build a firearm, and with a bit of time and care can build a very nice firearm.

    The railway workshops in Wellington built several thousand sten guns during WWII, and their gear was far less capable than what we have today.

    We are back to the usual place, which is laws only work for 1) the law abiding, or 2) people who are caught and punished breaking them. We've got the laws......

    Was it ALL made in a 3D printer?
    To me the chassis looked to be made of metal.

    Love the dumbarse comment: “can fire 15 rounds of 9mm with one pull of the trigger” - that was just after saying it was “a semi-automatic assault rifle”.

    That was very clearly due to the use of an incorrect filament being used, they even said so themselves. The 3d printed "existing" models like the Glock, AR etc are still using factory parts for the uppers but it is only a matter of time before they don't, and that will be a massive problem. In fact there is one model made using entirely unregulated parts that Police have already found here in a gang pad raid.

    Just look on twitter to see where this is going.
