Here's another thing I came across: Rail-mounted 22LR ammo carrier -- https://grabcad.com/library/22-lr-p...m-2-20-rounds-1




I tried it out. Printed great but I don't like that there isn't a positive stop to keep it securely in one spot on the rail, so I added a hole for an M3 bolt.





It was pretty tight getting the first rounds out, but after the first to break it in it seems fine.

My sole partiality is to that delectable spiced meat. Any additional confederation of vegetables shall not compromise the pie as I see it.

Oh man that rules

However, instead, I'm going to model one that clamps onto a scope instead, because my cool 22 is rail-less

E: gently caress that, I can make these for 22 hornet on my single shot, this is brilliant

Oh, scope mount would be boss.

Also if I had one of those Chiappa Little Badgers it would be perfect for those.

They have the ability to clip twelve rounds into the shoulder plate/pad/whatever. Admittedly, that would make it look so much more Fallout Chic, with additional bullets clipped in all over the rifle. I need that.

Finished printing and assembly the other day. Compared to my other conversion, this gun has the worst trigger feel in the world. Looking forward to trying it out at the range this weekend.

A free floated rail? Who needs that? Mount a foregrip on the barrel and torque it around all over the place.

Where exactly is the trigger rod in this photo? Does it run somehow up inside the receiver?

These look like they turned out great! Anything different from your first print that broke the lid?

Dropped the perimeters down to 2, from whatever I had before. Seems to have a bit more flex that way. There was still a little crackle when I first installed these but it looks good.

Yeah, I'm curious about this as well. Did you opt to go with a mechanical linkage this time, or have you gotten your fancy-smancy electrical trigger setup even more compact?

There is a brake cable running through the inside of the receiver, with a narrow plastic tube to guide it. There's just enough room to squeeze around the left side of the magazine. It's connected to the sear on the trigger, and pulls from the top.

We tested it out this weekend, and aside from having a lot of extra travel, it's not as bad as I thought.

Would having it 100% solid (like a bar) clean that up and help reliability? Like what is to assure you get proper trigger reset?

I imagine a threaded shaft would help adjust takeup and assure a proper reset.

Note: I have zero experience I only have an internet account.

Also sexism, religious bias, jingoism, and so on. Don't do it, people!

Dogs, don't do it either, even if the police man really tries to train you to do it.



I'm not an engineer, but I know some bullpup guns use a bar rather than a cable and it's supposed to help somewhat. Problem is that it's a lot more work to make a specifically shaped bar to get around all of the bits inside the gun and you might be dealing with rigidity issues with a bar as well depending on how much space you have.

This is neat and got me wondering if you could print an mlok mounted caddy for some .357s. I like the idea of this:



But I'd want the rounds parallel with the barrel, and Hoptic only does that for their .45-70 and .30-30 mount

I happen to enjoy modeling this kind of stuff, so if you want that to exist, my price is doing the measuring/googling to give me mlok connector specs cuz I don't know them or have one to measure

honestly my first impression of that picture last time you posted it somewhere was that the vertical rounds were stupid and space inefficient

After a 16 month hiatus I was inspired to spend 30 minutes re-doing my broken Star Super B grips model. Now to continue never printing it.



I had to fashion my replacement grips out of a piece of left over cherry flooring. The plastic grips that came with that damned gun were vile.

You will spend more time then printing trying to find the perfect shade of fleshtone.

It sure is! I used the remixed version which fixed the first layer.

My cheek rest seems to have printed fine. Too bad the PETG is slicker-feeling and not quite as nice as the textured kydex original but oh well the price is certainly right. I'll have to model some nut holder knobs for the nuts next.

If itís slick could you rough it up with some sandpaper or maybe texture it with a soldering iron then sand the jaggiest bits down?

I always wondered if you could get away with modeling the bores for a 22lr sleeve so the actual pressure was contained by steel instead of plastic.

Some of the designs do exactly that; being basically gun part zip guns with 3d printed furniture and dressing around them instead of being hose clamped & nailed to a two by four.

This got me thinking and dicking around in tinkercad.

After a little while I have this:


It has some grooves on the inside for an o-ring to securely keep a round from falling out.

My test prints are having some issues so I need to troubleshoot my printer when I have a chance. but from what has been successfully printed, I can say that it will hold two rounds of .357 and fit on an m-lock fore end.

Cool!

I made a holder for a couple shotshells once and getting it just tight enough to be secure but still with enough give to let go when needed was probably 90% of the work at least.

I had to do a little bit of fitment as they didn't have a relief cut for the plunger tube but a few minutes with a file and bingo bango, them fuckers fit.

I just wish there was more than the one model for CZ75 grips that I've found. That model is setup more for subtractive manufacturing and I don't own a CNC mill.
