True but people have tested them and they can work. And tech will continue to improve as time goes on. Also, I think 22lr conversions are more likely to work because they don't put as much stress on the lower receiver.

My first time here was worst then your first post , they thought i was a O'Smelly spy . and that kept me away for a year before I came back as welder516 .

So the way I am figuring we are mellowing out a bit .
I realize your handle was a luck or by chance but kinda funny as well .
Thank you. Now I'm curious, what was your first post?

Yes unfortunately it looks like they want to ban it. I guess we'll see what happens.

Here's an interesting project (link below) that I think could work with a 3D printed lower. No reciprocating bolt means less stress on the receiver.

Why sit back and wait to see what happens? Get involved. Join us in Annapolis if possible.

You don't need to 3D print them, you can buy AR15 ghost gun receivers at gun shows or on the internet. If you desperately want/need a gun you can go buy one for cash in Baltimore City or any other urban area or go to the next gun show. Guns laws are for law abiding citizens. The market flourishes outside of the gun laws and they are joke to the people who don't care.

As much as some would like everyone to believe, 3D printing takes learning, patience, and a bit of skill. It's not just, "Oh, I need to print another receiver today. Clicking 'print' button now."

Iím aware that traditional lowers are more practical. However, I think the tech behind 3D printing shows promise.
