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 .
I was called a troll by some in MSI. Lots of others on here think I am anti-gun. It is all good. lol

Why do so many people give new posters grief when they post a legal question? Best way to send them away from the board.

Anyway, to answer the OP's question, 3D printed guns, or "ghost guns" for that matter, are still legal in Maryland. However, there was a bill last session that would have outlawed any firearms manufactured after 1968 that were not serialized and the bill did not provide for grandfathering or a method for serialization either. Luckily for us, that bill did not pass. However, it is out there lurking. That bill actually had some of my liberal gun owning friends bent out of shape. Hoping it never comes along again. However, as my father in-law says, "Hope in one hand and crap in the other, and see which fills up first."

Welcome to the board.

Trump Derangement Syndrome - i.e., what supporters of Donald call those who dislike him so vehemently they're willing to throw out logic and reason in their hatred of him.

Polymer or Aluminum? Polymer won't hold up and will crack at the buffer tube eventually. Even the best ones don't last..They do make good lowers for rimfire though.

Some of the latest polymer 80% seem to be holding up really well (gen 3 556 and James Madison 80%). As for any polymer AR lower thatís certainly not true. Check out GWACS if in doubt. Itís sturdier than a standard aluminum lower.

I'm not buying it. Polymer breaks down under heat, UV, and rough handling far easier than aluminum. Polymer takes approximately 20-40 years to break down in a landfill while aluminum takes 200-400 years. While the newer designs of poly lowers might be better, there is no way plastic is going to last longer than metal..

Welcome to the board.
Thanks for the warm welcome. I was aware of the bill but wasn't sure what happened with it. That's why I asked you guys.

Quick update. I went ahead and printed a lower and attached it to a side charging upper. It's manually operated so no heavy stress from the reciprocating bcg. Just took it to the range it worked fine with no problems. Btw does anyone know how to attach a picture?
