Glock 17 3D Print and Test
(Followup with corrected issue)
This is my “Not a Glock” 17 3D print and test shots. The file is from DEFCAD. I’m pretty pleased with the build so far. I did have one issue but it is break-in related and not specific to the 3D print.
It uses an MDX parts kit with a threaded barrel. It also uses a rail kit from Riptide Rails. The parts kit from MDX does not come with rails. The magazines are from ETS.
The one issue I had was the barrel not fully seating in the slide. The sharp edge of the slide appeared to be grabbing the barrel just enough to keep it from seating completely.
The details of the problem are shown in the video and my suggestion as to the fix. After the video I filed the sharp edge a bit with a jewelers file and the pistol started working the way I expect. I’ll come back with a follow up video soon on this.
This video does not violate any YouTube rules.
9:31 You have the grab the frame tight like it owes you money! There should be zero gap between the web of your hand (thumb and pointing/trigger finger) and the frame. New Shooters are scary of slide bite so the grip is too low on the frame and too loose.
i think the first stovepipe was from the heavy glove blocking the slide
Did you have to do any filing
Everything time j print it print the bottom but it don’t print the top
Polish will help good
what kind of slide is that ?
I wonder if the pla deforms when hot. Might be more sound if printed on asa or nylon?
Was it difficult ordering off the mdx website? It canceled my order multiple times.
Hey man, I would like to know if you had a mail ? I would need to contact you ASAP
Where did you download the print? I watched the whole video I didn’t see any links
Follow up: Did things level out with respect to light strikes?
Very nice work👍🏻
How much filament did it take?
Where did u download the file from
The glove 😂
Hey man thanks for the tip on the rails. I have been making my own for my 3d printed frames which proves to be pretty difficult without a CNC machine….
Where can you download the files at
I love the way your safe with pointing the gun keep it up
This is so cool. I got a 3D printer for Christmas and I already opened it. I’m looking at parts from the places you suggested in the description for rails and barrel. This may be a stupid question but are there any legal issues for having a 3D printed gun? I have my conceal permit and have taken gun safety classes. I just worry about the police.
It’s either you have a bad pin or we need to upgrade your spring because it happened to me
Do you think it be possible to do it 100% 3d printed beside obesely the amo and springs
Which 3d printer you are using?
Well shit, all I have is an ender 3 Neo..
Limp wrist issue the weapon operates on recoil and your wrist not being tense is allowing alot of that rearward motion to move into your arm and not into the slide. Yherefore the slide isnt retracting fully and compressing the spring hard enough to send it fully forward. This is why you had better results with both hands.
I printed out some magazines and followers the spring and +3 baseplate you can find online for cheap
Try filing the rails either the sides or top surface of the rails
What 3D printer do you have?
You meant FMDA* free men don’t ask
It would be awesome if people actually watched the video or at least read the description before asking, in the comments, where I sourced files and parts from. I don’t take shortcuts building this pistol. You should not take shortcuts either.
Scared the poor deer family / wildlife 😥 You are lucky to live at location with such wonderful wildlife
Hi question I live in New York City but do I really need a gun license if I’m trying print my own at home and buy parts ?
Polish the metal parts that have friction
3d printed pistols usually dont blow up… the explosion happens in the slide/barrel which is all metal… usually if they malfunction its just not going to fire ive never heard of a 3d printed pistol exploding
I sold off all of my 7 glocks for the same issue. They had fails to fire, just hard primers that the Glock couldn’t set off. I had no issues with the same ammo and pistols with hammers.
a “lil tight” foe take off them big ass gloves😂😂
let me get this straight, apart from bullets and magazine everything 3d printed?
Not one target was hit that day
where can i find all the parts?
Did that print the holes.or you had to drill them out? Bout to get one of these printers.
I’d like to see how u clean the gun out of the mold
u can tell this man got a heart🤣he saw the deer and didnt even think about bussin at em i woulda took a shot
is this legal?
what cad do you use
clean them nails
Where can I get this frame
Where did I get the files?
i print rail down less clean up stronger frame and saves material
how do i get the template
started to get intense for me when that shot got stuck !!!!
