    3D Printed guns are legal.

    Most notable of this settlement is the following

    Notably, the settlement also stated that it was the DOJís position that AR-15s and similar semiautomatic rifles were not considered military weapons.

    I thought there would be more of a fight due to the Undetectable firearms act that was created in response to Glock in the late 80s making a pistol that could pass through metal detectors. Does that mean undetectable guns are now legal?

    Well PA is now suing to ban them. And Trump chimed in this morning so who knows.


    What's funny <sarc> is that you can legally make any firearm in your own home as long as you do not sell or transfer it.

    80% lower receivers are fairly cheap.

    Correct... you can. But most of those still use some type of steel for the barrel and therefore are detectable.

    I personally see no reason to restrict 3d printing in such a manner. There is no evidence of 3D printer guns being used in crimes. Not to mention it not an enforceable law. How will they know when someone is 3d printing a firearm?

    The guns will last a few shots maybe before they blow apart from pressure. And it costs around a grand to get a 3d printer up and running and then there is the material for a gun that only last a few shots. This is America..... it's not hard to get reliable, factory built handguns for a couple hundred dollars.

    Agree, I personally wouldn't trust something that is "home printed" plastic. Manufacturers have put a lot of testing and research into their development to ensure they don't blow up in your face when you pull the trigger.
