Video Evidence from 2009 As To Why A Limitation On Magazine Capacity Is Meaningless…

…because it takes less than a second to change one.

Yet “high capacity magazine clips” as the stupid politicians call them, are the greatest danger since the Black Plague.

Also the Mayor of Portland opened his mouth and confirms that he is a moron – the fun starts at about 4:20 when conservative radio host, Lars Larson starts to ask questions…

  1. Sean Hannity radio show is reporting New York State’s newly passed magazine ban restricts law enforcement officers to 7 rounds in a magazine also.

  2. And to add some fodder …

    “Five months ago, the group of homemade gun enthusiasts known as Defense Distributed set out to create a lethal firearm that could be downloaded and 3D-printed entirely from scratch, circumventing all gun control laws. But as new gun bills have been proposed in the wake of recent shootings, creating a bootleg weapon with digital pieces may soon be far easier: As simple as printing a spring-loaded plastic box.

    Over the past weekend, Defense Distributed successfully 3D-printed and tested an ammunition magazine for an AR semi-automatic rifle, loading and firing 86 rounds from the 30-round clip.”

    And for your viewing pleasure ….

    • That is so cool.

      Boxes are quite simple.

      Originally, the armalite magazine design was intended to be “throw away” or “disposable”.

    • Why the hello were you eating a Diane Feinstein lunch??/!! Did you know what was in it? (Probably somethin Pelosi passed.)More importantly, you do realise that a new Prohibition has begun?…….reckon I need some moonshine.

    • I heard about this technology and the Mags on the G Beck Radio show.

      This is Game-changer technology……..Is he shooting a full automatic inthe Clip ???

    • Augger,

      I wish it were that easy. Trust me on this one, folks, because this is my profession. This 3D printing craze is not yet what it is being made out to be. The material that is used to make these prints is a relatively soft resin, and the prints are great, but not perfect. they have to be printed in very thin but flat layers. As you might expect, that doesn’t work too well when you need close tolerance, perfectly round shapes. Even then, if you want the finished parts to be durable, you have to come see someone like me who can make castings from that 3D-printed master. If you try to use a 3D-printed spring in your magazine, it is going to break. At least, I’ve yet to see a resin that will do the job of the spring you’ll need to feed that sucker. That, and some of the materials that they use actually have a shelf life. After a few years, they sort of… Well, they sort of melt 😉

      FYI: I have a 3D printer. I can post pictures of 3D-printed masters I’ve used in my business. I have worked with this technology as well as SLA for more than 12 years now. I sort of know a little bit about it, but I’m no ‘expert’ — though my mentor is — a REALLY BIG ‘expert.’ So count me among the slightly skeptical here, OK? 😉


        • Augger,

          This stuff is cool. When I first saw it in 2001, I was handed a crescent wrench that had been ‘printed’ in 1 pc. It worked! But it was made from a soapy material you could crush with your hand. The resin has gotten harder and the resolution finer since then, but there are still hurtles to get over — and it will never be a replicator like in Star Trek. At least, this technology won’t be. They’ll need something better for that.

      • I have no doubt what you say is spot-on.

        But even the Technology as you descibe it, could be game-changing in turning out Temporary Mags with metal springs inside….and as Augger says and Chhelo….. remember Necessity is the mother if invention. Necessity could accelerate changes already in the pipeline faster then even consumer demand can.

  3. My friend, the National Guard armory sergeant, gave me four 30 round mags last week. He told me they throw them away if the mag is dinged up or scratched. They work perfectly.
