I want to try and push the limit of “how many 3d printed parts can I use in a build” as an experiment.
I am impressed by the FGC9 but I have two main complaints about it:
> too bulky to be used as a CCW
> uses 9mm, hard to find for yuropoors
My goal being to arm as many europoors with as little tooling as possible (aka a 3D printer, basic hand tools and an ECM rifling setup), I’m starting to fiddle around with a design of a more compact autoloader chambered in .22LR. I will steal 90% of my design from a glock pattern since it’s very widespread
>NB4 it lacks powwaaa
yuropoors are leaner and a random Ngubu attacking Hanz will not be fat enough to stop a 22
>NB4 eeww glock
the future is now old man.
go larp as a WW2 soldier somewhere else. The “right answer” of a functional setup is a glock 19 and an AR15, anything else is cringe larp tier.
>NB4 infringing on the copyright of the glock 44is a crime
I want to limit the amounts of machines used. Simple metal parts that are 2.5D can be made with simple hand tools but others like barrel and slide are machined out of aluminium and steel. I want a random Londoner to be able to build this quickly in his appartment, so CNC machining is out of the question.
For this specific application (slide / upper assembly) would carbon nylon (NylonX or other) be a good substitute for aluminium?
I’m thinking just the slide since other critical parts have already been done
