My go-to PLA is Polymaker PLA Pro. Not only is it easy to print, it is extremely strong:
My favorite is of course my 3D Print General FDE – shipping starting December 2022:

    3D Printed weapons are a blessing to many. In Myanmar, the rebels have began printing their own FGC-9’s to help their cause, which is crucial because they often dont have enough conventional firearms to equip themselves entirely.

  2. No name on May 27, 2023 at 3:35 am

    Greate now school shoolers and other terrorists can print theyre gunns at any age with a low pricetag without theme being registered nice

  3. ☦ Kelly Shea on May 27, 2023 at 3:36 am

    Ban assault printers

  4. RoboNator on May 27, 2023 at 3:36 am

    One thing that should probably be mentioned is the luty, or the 3d printed gun before 3d printers. People have been trying to make guns with parts at home as a means of protest for ages, 3d printers is just what finally made most people realize "oh fuck, you really can’t regulate this, can you?"

  5. MrMigraine on May 27, 2023 at 3:38 am

    This is both awesome and terrifying.

  6. Cereal Killer on May 27, 2023 at 3:38 am

    Never show your Palms on video it’s the same as fingerprint
    Never use your own voice. Alter it

  7. Fenix Indastris on May 27, 2023 at 3:39 am

    JStark Statue. I will need to print it…

  8. Idiot idiot on May 27, 2023 at 3:40 am

    Liberator could have used some metal scraps to stop it from exploding

  9. Michal Sniadala on May 27, 2023 at 3:44 am

    why is he talking to a guy with an atf hat
    is nobody gona talk about that?

  10. Mazikeenflowers on May 27, 2023 at 3:45 am

    Fun fact, awcy is named after an SCP goi.

  11. Daniel Saada on May 27, 2023 at 3:45 am

    Pla plus is ok… But Pla st (super tough) is the way to go. Its sooo strong

  12. 9walther9 on May 27, 2023 at 3:46 am

    4:04 i just assumed it wouldn’t blow up is how i get through most situations

    в нашей стране всех кто придумал оружие на 3d принтере посадили бы на бутылку и крутанули в тюрьму

    7.62×37mm MusangUSC.45 ACP . 22 caliber respectively.

  19. Günther van Raven on May 27, 2023 at 3:54 am

    As a european it‘s interesting how a society can be so dumb. Good luck shooting each other.

  20. -- on May 27, 2023 at 3:58 am

    Isnt it illegal to own basically unregistered firearms in the usa???? Isnt that something only people that will use firearms for commiting crime would need. Ik this sounds weird but just askin

  21. Slam Duh Clang on May 27, 2023 at 3:58 am

    Instructions unclear, I am now on some kind of list and there is a black van parked outside my house

  22. Michael Derossett on May 27, 2023 at 3:58 am

    I just built an AR9 using a serialized polymer lower receiver. It’s no different than a 3D printed lower and it works flawlessly. I don’t have the knowledge to do this myself but I just wanted to point out that the technology works well enough that manufacturers are making parts the same way! Good luck and stay armed!

  23. Honk Honk on May 27, 2023 at 4:01 am

    Love how J* wasnt even doing anythign wrong.
    He was just excersizing his natural liberties.

    But commies dont like that. Commies want you to work on behalf of the state to generate infinite wealth for the "not-bourgeoisie"
    Of course they couldn’t leave him alone to enjoy technologies.
    Raided the mans house out of fear lmfao.

    America has its problems, but I’m glad it exists.

  24. Caleb Flagg on May 27, 2023 at 4:04 am

    We need to make 3d2a so popular that banning guns in the USA is impossible

  25. thegodhoward on May 27, 2023 at 4:06 am

    Freedom fuels this video

  26. BananaJesus on May 27, 2023 at 4:07 am

    Why gun control will never work

    15.03 that cute color

  28. rRodez on May 27, 2023 at 4:10 am

    100$ for credit card case xD

  29. Gift Horse on May 27, 2023 at 4:10 am

    Make 3D printed ammo because that’s how they’ll ban these guns

  30. greenthunder1000 on May 27, 2023 at 4:10 am

    Fuck gun control 9mm lmfao.

  31. Wiskzero77 🇧🇷 on May 27, 2023 at 4:11 am

    Just came from Brazil to say – The government is NOT your friend, the government doesn’t like you, they only want your MONEY and they want to F You!

    I’m not an anarch1st, I am a normal guy in a country dominated by thieves and corruption! Here, gun control is absolute, you can’t legally have any firearm! But the monster who r4pes your mom and sister sure has a firearm! If I don’t pay my taxes (15% of my payment) I can get 15 years in prison and have to pay 50.000R$ in fines (I receive 1.300R$ monthly, 261,77 dollars) but if I r4pe and rob someone, I get 4 years, but in 2 I can leave because of a law (the prisons are too full, so you can’t stay your last 2 years in prison), with a good attorney and without concrete profs, I don’t even go to prison, and the state even has to pay my attorney!

    This country is destroyed by the corrupt law and we can’t even do anything about it, btw ppl are so dumb here, they even idolize these guys, year after year, I don’t even know how this shithole still exists, because our Murd3r Rate is so high, we are in rank 8 globally and that is just the ones counted! I wake up every morning at 5 AM to work without knowing if I will get back alive home, or if my family will still be there!

    TL;DR, never let your freedom be decided by other people! Because of the mistakes of my past relatives, I WON’T have any children, not because I don’t want, but do not let him live in this F feast of being F by the wrong and by the government!

    (I know that this is just a video about printed firearms, but know that if you can’t protect yourself and the ones who should are corrupted or just follow the law, you are on your own, because gun control and corrupt law, you can be a good lad and be F daily until some thug r4pe your family and end your life or be in the wrong and live with it like most do being corrupt and selfish.)

    (BTW, this can be my last comment like that, because congress are voting to censor any comment about the government or minorities, with a fine for the company, like Google or Facebook of 1.000.000,00 R$ daily for each comment, and if it succeeds, these companies already said that will close the doors here in brazil.)

    Thank you for subscribing to my channel brother. It means the world to me. I always thought what Cody was doing back in the day was amazing. It’s been quite the incredible experience to being able to work with modern 3D prints like the Orca. Genuinely amazing really. ❤

  33. RB79BALL on May 27, 2023 at 4:14 am

    the challenge is always on the material. It is the pressure and temperature that limit the development. None of the designs that involve printing the chamber and barrel can survive for more than 100 rounds. On another hand, I do agree everything else can be printed

  34. San Peschke on May 27, 2023 at 4:14 am

    Butt hole pucker to bit when I saw the ATF. I guess my dog’s right next to me so I don’t want to be f****** youth and nice at

  35. Zona ALG on May 27, 2023 at 4:14 am

    Be careful with how you handle your privacy when dealing with this stuff outside of the US. I think thats something important you completely forgot to mention in the video. But probably didn’t even think about it because of your country’s gun regulations

    For example in Mexico it is illegal and reserved to national army departments to design or build any type of projectile shooting devices that might be considered harmful. I read the whole laws and they were really specific, basically theres no legal way to get around them

  36. 4nt on May 27, 2023 at 4:14 am

    time to spam this in liberal servers and bait reactions out of progressive normies

    Never be disarmed, it only leads to death and enslavement.
