So does this mean he commited a crime? Dont you need a Licence to manufature? Are the Feds going to get him?

3D printers OMG think of the Children!!!!!!

No. You do not need a license to manufacture. Certain things, yes. Most firearms and ammunition, no.

Some of the components of an AR-15 are already plastic anyway. I don't see what the big deal is. They're already readily available and cheap enough.

I went back and re edited my post i realized i left out the part on the reciever!

Sounds like another lame excuse to pass more laws to further screw me and my freedom(or slavery).

Are they gonna take away every mill and lathe in the US in the process? Pushing the green Go (Cycle Smash) button on a CNC is no different from clicking print...except I can do it with aluminum and steel.

I think it is interesting. Just think, an ar at a fraction of the price. Something you could keep in your car, or tuck back somewhere.

You really couldn't manufacture the whole thing, I assume the barrel would need to be metal of some sort.

And besides, if a 3d printer can make a 3d printer, you would have a huge influx of 3d printers. One guy buys one, makes a few, sells them to cover the cost.

OH NOES! The always-smarter consumer finds a way to get around the we-know-best-for-everything government.

I'm waiting on the black market for 3-D printers to kick in. $1000 is out of my reach at the moment...

You don't need a license to manufacture a receiver either. There aren't any parts of the AR-15 you need a license to manufacture.

The upper and barrel would both definitely need to be metal. Not even Glock quality plastic can substitute metal for the actual chamber of the gun.
