...There are all sorts of ways to create firearms using very common hand tools... and metal working isn't exactly rocket science,...
What these "rebels" clearly aren't considering is that anyone downloading this wanting to circumvent government control of firearms will have left an electronic trail by downloading the plans.
Plans to make the .50 cal Barrett type Sniper Rifle have been on the net for download for years.... and people have made them. In NC, as long as its not a machine gun, or select fire weapon, manufacture is not controlled.
Not if you torrent the plans and download anonymously at any internet cafe, or at your leisure while waiting in the jet blue lounge while you wait for a plane, or if your are sophisticated through a computer that runs a microsoft OS that you have commandeered through a backdoor trojan program.
One of my clients has been using a Z printer for years to cut cost on manufacturing a part
they are trying to sell before they pay the cost of tooling up. That said even after they
apply the hardner I would never shoot it. I may be out of the loop but can they print
I don't know about actually printing metal, but you could easily machine any part you need with a fancy mill setup...NOT cheap though.. AT ALL.
Is this strong enough to with stand shooting a cartridge. Maybe a small? I don't think
I'm test firing it.
