    World's 1st 3D printed Metal Gun

    This is some cool stuff...



    Solid Concepts has successfully produced what it claims to be the world’s first 3D printed metal gun. And unlike the Liberator before it, this one looks a whole lot closer to the traditional firearms you're used to seeing. According to its creators, the metal gun functions without issue and has already fired off over 50 rounds. Building it involved the process of laser sintering — which helped them manufacture over 30 individual components for the gun — and various powdered metals. The point of all of this, Solid Concepts says, is to provide yet more evidence of 3D printing's potential; that the technology of far more than making "trinkets and Yoda heads."

    Wow.

    When are the replicators coming for making dinner, lunch or breakfast for that matter.

    Or that after dinner cocktail.

    I believe this technology will help bring back some manufacturing to the USA.

    did anybody notice in the first 3 round hand held test that the slide went back to eject the spent round, but when it went forward to chamber a new round it stopped about half way and then continued back to the starting position? It didn't do that in the second test so im assuming they made some type of adjustment...im interested in knowing the prices of these.

    They most likely added a stronger spring.

    It is just a CNC machine. Not a big deal. I do like the fact that I can build my own gun at home with just a software package, some raw stock and a 1000.00 3-D printer. Great.
    My ride is a 2002 Camaro SS SLP #3296 with 30k, LTH, 3" Y, CME, Frost tune, K&N, ported TB, Blackwing lid, Bellows, MSD, Denso Iridium, and 85mm MAF, Bilsteins, Eibach springs, SLP strut brace, Adj. Panhard, TA Girdle, UMI, Pro 5.0, Nitto NT555
    My wife has a 2004 GTO with the rare SAP, 18" wheels, K&N Cold Air System, MSD, Ported TB, Frost tune, Denso Iridium, Flowmaster cat-back, 3200 Yank, 75k
