So today I really got into this and decided to see if I could look up instructions, download/design parts, and build a gun. Went with an AK-47. Spent some time at the lab but ended up getting most of it done. Some random pics below.
It's pretty worrisome to know that if someone had the correct equipment to print this, then they could print a lethal firearm. I'll keep it simple in this next part. Granted not everything on the weapon would be printed, but it would more than doable to find those parts of the weapon that cannot be printed just by searching around.

Lol I believe it's still way cheaper and easier to get one at any gun shop in the US so that's far more worrisome.0

The black market is going to get bigger, gun runners are going to go gangbusters.
There is already a fully metal 3D printed M1911
Next I think in ten years well start seeing A whole lot of illegal manufacturing of Sten Guns, the brits required they be simple enough to make in a villiage workshop, and a 3D printer can easily do that.
And in Ten or fifteen years, Criminals all over the world will have access to Military Firepower.
