Arizona - -(Ammoland.com)- An experimenter under the nom de plume of Buck O’ Fama has printed the receiver for the popular Ruger Charger pistol, and assembled a working pistol with it. (Note: Strum Ruger Inc has nothing to do with the 3d printing shown here other than be an inspiration for the style of hand gun)

The video shows the first test fire of the gun, which appears to work well.    It has always been legal to make your own firearms in the United States, if they are not prohibited weapons.

Pistols such as the Ruger style shown here, have been ruled to be protected under the Second Amendment to the Constitution.   At the end of the video, the experimenter notes: “If you take my gun, I will just print another one”

3D printed semi-automatic pistol (modeled after a Ruger Charger) test fire. The pistol version of the popular Ruger 10/22 rifle, the Ruger Charger comes standard with 10-round flush magazines and can accept high-capacity mags holding 30 rounds or more. As demonstrated, making one with a cheap small-format 3D printer and some parts purchased on the internet (with no paperwork) is trivially easy.

Here is the link for the LiveLeak video.

The video was posted on July 4th 2014, Independence Day, from somewhere in the State of Nevada.   It is interesting that in spite of the fact that the poster did nothing illegal, they felt compelled to disguise their voice. ( possibly to sensationalize the video)

While firearms have been made in home workshops for hundreds of years, many people are unaware that  large industrial facilities are not required.  3D printers and CAD machines make the production of many parts easier, but the same results can be produced with drills and files.
