3-D Printed Gun Only Lasts 6 Shots
A group of 3-D printing gunsmiths have taken another step toward making a gun you can download off the internet. This weekend, the desktop weaponeers took a partially printed rifle out to test how long its plastic parts survived spewing bullets. The result? Six rounds until it snapped apart.

But that was also the point, the group’s founder tells Danger Room. “We knew it would break, probably,” says Cody Wilson, who heads the Wiki Weapon project. “But I don’t think we thought it’d break within six [rounds]. We thought it’d break within 20.”

Don't know much about the 3-d gun but sounds like its a one piece gun. If so.. how the hell would you clean it.

Re: 3-D Printed Gun Only Lasts 6 Shots
how much do one of these 3-D printers cost anyways? Isn't this state-of-the-art technology?

I worked as a sales rep at a Ricoh dealership for a couple years. The 80-90 ppm machines cost like $8000 and up. Even if these 3D plastic guns worked nearly just as well as steel guns, the technology and costs to produce them would still be high. I just don't see how there would be a market for them. I wouldn't waste a couple hundred bucks on a working plastic gun that would break down after a couple years.
