3D-Printed Gun Fires off Six Shots Before Going Kaput

Everyone’s going crazy over 3D printing these days, and understandably so. The concept seems like it’s something from the pages of a sci-fi book, and now researchers have managed to turn it into a reality.

3D Printed GunThe coolest thing about 3D printing is that the sky is really the limit. You can now ‘manufacture’ toys, gadgets, and even weapons from 3D scans, patterns, and of course, a good 3D printer. It’s impressive stuff, but when it comes to the last bit, it’s also pretty scary.

A couple of amateur gunsmiths came together and had a some gun parts printed so that they could put together a fully-functional AR-15 semi-automatic rifle. They tested out the 3D-printed lower receiver recently and results were pretty good at first Рthat is, until they got to their sixth shot.

Note that the receiver was the only 3D-printed part used in the test; all others used were actual gun parts.

What do you think?
