Cody Wilson, You Are Dangerous

Of Wired Magazine’s 15 Most Dangerous People in the World, perhaps Cody Wilson is one among a couple of names that are not immediately familiar:

Cody Wilson, Defense Distributed, Wiki Weapon, 3-d printed gun
Cody Wilson, Defense Distributed, Wiki Weapon, 3-d printed gun

To earn his dangerous title, Cody started printing a 3-D gun on a Stratasys printer. But the company confiscated the gear, pronto. . .

  1. Can you even imagine how fun it would be to have a 3-D printer to play with? We made a lot of toy guns when I was growing up and this would have taken it to an entirely different level.

  2. The days of placing bare buttocks on the laser photocopier just got so much more interesting?

    Yours Aye.

  3. Funny, ExBootneck! It’s a shame the printers are so expensive…I might buy one for my old office just for that reason alone. And there were a few who do it, too.

  4. OkieRover: I agree. I’ll bet the “ink” is expensive as heck.
    EB: Who would ever do such a thing? (Not me, back when I was 16, would I ever.)
    Kris: Hahaha!
    CP: Do NOT post the results, please.
    Lou: Agreed. . .

  5. Much ado about nothing. He can “print” the unstressed lower receiver, but NOT the barrel, upper, bolt-carrier, bolt, firing-pin, none of the “fiddily-bits” that make the damn thing work! Springs, pins, gas-tube, roll-pins, bolt-carrier-key? Nope! none of those, nor the recoil-buffer, sear, or spring.
    Alarmist clap-trap printed by someone who knows nothing about firearms…
