Now, the upper you can do whatever you want with. The upper is not considered the gun.

So even if I have a stripped lower, that's registered, I own a complete rifle and it must be registered as a complete rifle.

This allows me to sell my registered lower (Stripped) and print a new lower at my leasure...Then when I'm done with it dispose of the evidence...Melt it, blow it up -- Do whatever you want with it.

They can't "legally" take the upper away because it's not considered the rifle...They CAN "legally" take the lower away.

So if I live in a banned state, I can print 30 round magazines or lowers at my whim, shoot them and then dispose of the evidence for a marginal fee.

$200 may seem like a lot to most of you but, that's about 25 rounds of .408 -- Maybe 100 good rounds of .308...~ $200 to MOST gun owners is a drop in the hat.

but for $200 i can get a lot of match grade .22lr tongue.gif

also do you think colt will move out of Connecticut eventually with all the new anti gun legislation/ laws coming on?

Because you're prototyping the part, there is no sereal # needed and it's perfectly legal as long as you qualify to own a firearm to begin with...

Doesn't sound like it can last long. 1'000 rounds isn't really showing a long life span. Commercial use may be fine but I still see that there needs to be a lot of improvement until they could print the entire thing and have long term durability.

Right now it seems like these could be really be used for toy guns, military training paintball markers, and even making custom shrouds for each soldiers specifics.

You'd have much better luck with the H&K 416. The 47 is mostly medal, and with the amount of force required to fire a 7.62mm found at the same mussel velocity as a 47 is far, far too great for the current tech by the sounds of it.

Yes, actually.

Colt aren't just the only ones here, though.

Dewey has planned on moving...Bushmaster has parts factories here...2 major scope mount companies are here...2 scope manufacturers are here...Powder is here...Bullets are in SE CT...That's what comes immediately to mind...I'm sure there's more.

If the bill passes for CT, you'll see an exodus from this state of both companies and gun owners.

I know of quite a few that are already planning on moving.

That has been dated for such a long time. Try a 74, or a AEK.

What the heck kinda loads do you put in your .308 that it costs you 2 dollars per round?? For that much, that round better load itself and make in-flight adjustments lachen.gif

If you can find it anymore wink.gif

And I hope they do, just like Beretta with MD and Magpul in Colorado...

My question is why is it a big deal? It is too expensive. You can go buy an AR lower right now for sub 500$. Why make something inferior for triple the amount? If you want unregistered then I suppose I could see a motive but Im lucky and dont have to register my firearms. I can go purchase a used firearm from anyone I'd like and have no legal obligation to register it. I think people just like to throw it out of proportion and yes I am a gun owner.

Edit: Just to make myself clear. I mean register it in my name.
