Welcome to the Future: Print Yourself an AR-15 Magazine at Home!

    My dreams have come true. It is now possible to use a desktop 3D printer to print an AR-15 magazine, floorplate, follower and spring!

    The 3D models have been opensource, so anyone can use them, modify them and distribute them. All you need a MakerBot desktop 3D printer. The latest MakerBot is sold in kit form for $1,299.

    An AR-15 lower receiver 3D printer model has also been published, although nobody has published photos of the end result.

    Do any TFB readers have a MakerBot or similar printer?

    I founded TFB in 2007 and over 10 years worked tirelessly, with the help of my team, to build it up into the largest gun blog online. I retired as Editor in Chief in 2017. During my decade at TFB I was fortunate to work with the most amazing talented writers and genuinely good people!
