Creating Your Own AR-15 Pistol Legally

Freedompost – Yes this is going to sound like something out of the latest Mission  Impossible film, but it’s a reality. A user by the name of “HaveBlue” constructed the lower receiver of an AR-15 using a 3D  printer.

The lower receiver is the section of the weapon that is considered  the “firearm” as also has a serial number affixed to it, should it be purchased  alone or complete with upper. You could call this a “home brewed AR-15,” and it  will definitely get under the skin of gun grabbing liberals like Michael  Bloomberg.

What’s interesting is that the lower is made out of ABS plastic. The design  called for steel so HaveBlue had to reinforce some of the areas of the firearm.  He then printed the design to an older model Statasys 3D printer and used a  conversion kit for a .22 pistol.

While some said the part would fail and could cause him serious injury,  HaveBlue put the unit to a test, firing some 200 rounds with no problems. He  then stepped it up a notch and added a full metal upper and shot some .223  rounds. His design has held up well and shows no sign of major wear.

Making  guns yourself is not illegal as long as you don’t sell or distribute  them.

Oh I’m sure the libs are going to have a hay day with this one! As for those  of us who are conservative and love the Second Amendment, the 3D printers have  serious potential for us to guard our Second Amendment rights well into the  future.

With technology advancing the way it is, the cost of these kinds of printers  will obviously become less and less expensive. Guns are no the only possibility  with these devices either. Tools, skeletal implants and all kinds of prototypes  can be manufactured relatively cheap.

While this is not the first 3d printed gun part, it very well could be the  first one that has been made into a fully working firearm.

So what is the result?
