Company That Made the First 3D Printed Metal Gun Is Selling Them For $11,900 – Slashdot

“Solid Concepts, which last month revealed the first fully-functional, metal 3D gun, announced today that they’re putting 100 limited-edition models of the 1911 .45 caliber pistol on sale for $11,900 each. Solid Concept demonstrated the gun by initially firing 50 rounds through it. Since then, the company said it has fired nearly 2,000 rounds through the pistol without a single malfunction.

A little spendy, but like everything else that gets digitized, the price will drop rapidly, one it becomes subject to Moore’s Law, which 3-D printed firearms now definitely are.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
