Are these things good?

3d printed AK receivers
it'd be cool to have a $500 Polish parts AK but not if I have to redo it every thousand rounds

    2 people can print the same thing and have different results depending on conditions, material, etc.

    If re-printing something because it has flaws is a deal breaker for you, don't even bother with 3D printing.

    my amigo turned out pretty good. I'm going to reprint it with better supports, but even as-is it's cool enough to be worth it.

      what upper is that.

      So how long until ATF makes the pressure bearing components the serialized part like the rest of the world? Would anything even happen besides leviathan youtubers making a few videos recommending people do nothing noteworthy like they usually do?

      never, its counter to the legislative definition and they'd get PeePee smacked if they try.
      >but but but [irrational demoralization attempt]?!

      bruen decision says all gun control is fake and gay.

      ATF is uncucking the NFA wait times because they know theyll get ASSFRICKED in court.

      How do you test this or trust it to function when firing it for the first time to avoid self-deletion?

        check headspace.
        I took it out back and dropped it on an empty chamber, checked headspace with a feeler gauge, then I loaded a mag with one round and dropped it on that and checked headspace again. then did it with a loaded mag.
        for roller delay guns the gap between the bolt head and the bolt carrier shows you how far out the rollers are, if that gap is correct, then the rollers are properly deployed.
        if the rollers are properly deployed, then the lockup is good.

    even if it was a real receiver youd have to redo it
    those parts are trash that just happens to be made in poland

      I say the polish one just because I like how it looks (12 inch draco) and cuz it's the most Slav country besides Russia so I figure they make good AKs. What's wrong with them? I asked a chatbot because you said that and it said go with a US or Polish one.

        It's cool as a gimmick but if just the stamped recovers are prone to flexing under rapid fire then I can only imagine what the 3D printed ones look like through the lens of slow motion camera.

        Not him but from what I understand early pioneer arms AK's made from Polish parts used to have a lot of QC issues and or wore out faster, not sure about the new models though. Also from what I've read Bulgarian AK parts are more or less the creme of the crop for AK builds in the US but I could be wrong.

          Pioneer is a shit company that makes their stuff in Poland, but they are a far cry from "Polish AK quality". When someone says a former soviet country makes good AKs, they're talking about the old former soviet arms manufacturers (FB Radom, Cugir, FEG, Zastava). These plants pump out good parts and good guns, at least generally speaking. Hammer forged parts, correct welding, riveting, chrome lining, etc. It's all soviet spec.
          Pioneer on the other hand is not a former soviet military arms manufacturer. Instead, they use cheap parts, have cheap QC, cheap cheap cheap. You are not getting a good quality AK for the prices Pioneer offers. Even PSA makes better AKs than them. If you look at WBP, which is also in Poland, they are not a former arms manufacturer BUT they do make their 7.62 AKs to correct soviet spec and they use FB Radom's high quality, cold hammer forged and chrome lined barrels.
          tl;dr when someone says "polish quality" they mean FB Radom lol.

        you said Polish AK parts are trash and now you're saying Poland is the most slav country other than Russia. I am confused on all fronts.

      them being made in poland is the reason they are trash. there is a reason converted surplus polish radom aks are still the cheapest and most undesiderables here in europe apart from new chinese stuff.

    a metal CNC mill costs about the same with less chemical-air contamination issues

    if you can tick weld, you can make something safer in both production and operation

      You don't need a metal CNC mill you need a shop press a drop drill some reamers and bits, some HSS bolts and box metal and a brain. While old guns like flintlocks can be very difficult to make, to make a cartridge gun if you have some starter like nail gun blanks whether a rifled blow back sub gun or a rifled pistol, or a shotgun is not hard. You won't be making a precision rifle. 3D printing is shit, a diversion a con.

      While I respect your advice, I don't want to go into business making AKs, only to save a few grand printing a few for the collection.

    3D printing is a psyop against people who might otherwise learn how to make useful firearms. You don;t need anything more than a drop drill, a shop press and some reamers and some high tensile threaded bar and bolts and some other scrap but instead we have to have this FRICKING moronic obsession with melted theromoplastic plastic crap which is the last thing you need on a gun that gets hot. All of these plastic bullshit projects need metal barrels, springs and bolts. You could make the remainder out of the average box metal frame office desk instead of plastic and it would be better.

      I like Ivan. But I fail to see the purpose of the plastikov given the relative ease of just building an AK with an 80% lower.

      I mean I guess since its more or less a concept and not really being marketed as a commerical item it does. Nobody is really out anything if nobody downloads it. Also I guess now that I am thinking about it other people down the road can use his work in their project.

      Theoretically, 3d printed weapons are for firing once and claiming a better weapon off of whoever you ambushed.
      Everything they do better than that is just a bonus.

      just because we can.
      its all about maximizing freedom and eventually push the limits on what we can do

      remember the first 3d printed gun was shitty liberator

      If you own a 3d printer you're looking for new projects. Printed Glock frame was one if the first things I did with mine.

      It's cool, and work on one AK pattern gun may yield interesting projects in the future. I think a better example are the MP5 variants and P90s. The MP5s genuinely have some advantages over the factory models: they're way lighter. The P90s are mostly just cheaper right now, but there's some work being done to develop a 9mm variant so they don't cost such a ridiculous amount to take to the range.
