Tech group prints high capacity AR magazine with 3-d printer

legislators and the left led by Obama want to ban guns, including semi-automatic assault rifles and high capacity AR magazines, this group from Texas called Defense distributed just printed a brand new 30 round high capacity AR magazine using a 3-d printer and an open source CAD file. So is Obama going to ban 3-d printers?, is he going to ban the internet where you can easily download this file and print it with the click of a button?. You can't stop the digital age, welcome to the future.

have a look at their blog : http://defdist.tumblr.com/post/40315167419/defdist-printed-ar-mag-part-i

  • Same bullshit with the "ammo tax" they are proposing. I have Dillon 5 stage re-loader and can easily reload 1000 rounds in couple hours in my own basement. My buddy actually casts his own lead slugs with various caliber molds. It's been a while since I bought factory ammo.

    Then they ban primers, powder, brass. I mean these liberal fucktards are just intolerable.

    • @lucidx1 Beg to differ my fully assembled printer cost me $720. Uses two extruder nozzles for multicolored printing, and two spools of 0.20 mm ABS plastic line.

      Not the fastest machine on the market, but I bet I can print that AR file in 8-10 hours per mag.

  • I work in 3d printing. No need to use a 3d printer to make gun parts. All you need is a mill. If you are going to use a new technology. Use it to make something new. Not something old fashion. 3D Printing can do things machining cannot. In other words, you can make weapons beyond what is currently possible to machine. Anyway, let the simple minded do simple minded things with advanced technology. lol

      no need to have your nose in the air, it's about letting the masses have access to pricey tech capability that was confined to large corporations. The internet and large computers was around for decades before it was opened up with the advent of personal computers that were small and affordable, now look where we are

      Laws apply equally to everyone, but they are only meaningful to the people willing to obey them.

      To the people who disobey them they are just words on paper.

      You can hold the entire Brady Bill in front of you but it won't stop a bullet.

  • Democrats and the idiots that think like them can chew on this while thinking about their ban on high capacity magazines. I bet this tastes like a shit sandwich.

  • Now to print bullets and actual gun parts, not just the magazine! Yes I know these are plastics and that's why the clips are only being used. But I know that the real deal is not too far around the corner. Good thing these 'printers' costs tens of thousands of dollars or else we would have every poor sob making weapons.

  • Only thing is Id like to see is the rifle being fired to a target, Many questions come to mind when someone attempts to print a rifle, Is it accurate?, How long before the fkn barrel over heats & melts away etc, Like Ive said before this is a nice concept & people already jumping on the bandwagon aren't even sure if a printed rifle has better Or equal working value to a real one.

  • Would love to see an entire rifle assembled from parts printed out of a 3D printer. Now THAT would be awesome. Not really impressed here. Have seen much more complicated things made from a 3D printer than a high capacity magazine. I know the message isn't all about "Look what we can make" but I'd still rather see them design some CAD files to assemble your own gun.

  • The best thing to do if people are truly worried the government is going to confiscate guns.Start making detailed blueprints with parts lists and maybe some tooling so that people are not so dependent on the current manufacturers that may stop production.Make cad files of the guns and then upload them to the servers for download.
