3D printed .22lr 1911 (with printed slide)

A 3D printable .22lr 1911 currently being developed which uses a printed frame as well as a printed slide combined with DIY parts which has been reportedly holding up well during testing.

The barrel is also printed with a steel tube lining and will eventually include a printed magazine.

Australian police seize two more FGC-9s

New South Wales police apparently seized two more 3D printed FGC-9 pistols this week as part of raids on an international crime syndicate. According to the reporter each can fetch over $25,000 AUS. If that’s anywhere near a street value that’s not bad for a few dollars worth of PLA and a bit of steel tubing which quoting the officer “can be done anywhere, anyone’s garage, anyone’s bedroom with the right software and printer”.

Now that owning toy ‘gell blasters‘ carry the same sentence as an illegal firearm in some Australian states, perhaps these will start to fill the void.
