Pretty sure I’m gunna build ar pistol..

SBR it

Why waste the money?

Waste the money on a SBR? Aint no waste. lol. Plus the NFA wait times are decreasing.

Not an SBR.  That is a sig arm strap thing. You can put it on the gun and it’s still a pistol AR.

My new EDC knife.

One of California’s largest firearm stores recently added a peculiar new gun to its shelves. It requires an accessory: a black waterproof watch.

The watch’s primary purpose is not to provide accurate time, though it does. The watch makes the gun think. Electronic chips inside the gun and the watch communicate with each other. If the watch is within close reach of the gun, a light on the grip turns green. Fire away. No watch means no green light. The gun becomes a paperweight.

The World’s first 3D printed metal gun
Texas based Solid Concepts have produced the world’s first 3D printed metal gun which has fired over 50 shots to date. The Austin based firm used a direct metal laser sintering process (DMLS) which allowed them to produce all parts except springs.
The assembly process takes between five and seven minutes and relies totally on metal components to work. Previously, the Liberator – until this point the most sophisticated example of a 3D printed gun available – could only be shot once and is manufactured from plastic.
Designs for the Liberator were shared online earlier this year and sparked controversy with fears of guns being manufactured in people’s homes. Modelled on a WWII pistol it was accurate to just a few metres whereas the Solid Concepts version has been filmed hitting targets dozens of metres away. Ammunition is .45 Winchester white box types which are sold separately.
Printing illegal firearms at home has long been a concern, making it into political debates regularly. Great Manchester police made headlines at the start of October when they supposedly discovered parts for a 3D printed gun. Later this was proved not to be the case with the seizure actually being items for the printer itself.
Metal 3D printing requires very different machines to ones currently available for domestic use. You then need access to powdered metals and the right expertise to make a pistol from scratch. Cost is the main deterrent to criminals with large sums of cash needing to be outlaid.
DMLS manager at Solid concepts said: “We weren’t trying to figure out a cheaper, easier, better way to make a gun - that wasn’t the point at all. What we were trying to do was dispel the commonly-held notion that DMLS parts are not strong enough or accurate enough for real-world applications.”
The company’s head of marketing, Scott McGowan, added: “There are barriers to entry that will keep the public away from this technology for years.”
