The year is 2030 and the NFA has been defeated by the "state's rights" argument, much like the federal ban on cannabis of the previous decades. Additionally, 3D printers are now considered standard inclusions in home garages, right next to your table saw and air compressor.
With these two factors in mind, how common will inexpensive throwaway 3D printed plastic suppressors be? For sporting use with large bore and/or low pressure cartridges, and for hunting use.

    Near zero except some hobbyists/enthusiasts wanting to test ideas before using metal. If the NFA went away completely (doubt.jpg but whatever) then you'll be able to get perfect decent mass manufactured metal cans otc for <$100 that'll last way longer. You can't beat mass manufacturing on pure cost.

    The only way 3D print makes a big difference is if the NFA DOESN'T go away, and Form 1s continue to be enormously faster than Form 4s (plus there are major "repair" advantages depending on design). That'd push towards more and more doing F1s then just making their own. If it's designed with replaceable core and serial'd steel shell then repairing doesn't require anything at all, in case of major strike or whatever else you just print a new core. That'd be a major revolution.

    But if you can just buy it cheap at a store or ordered to your door that's what most will do same as every single other unregulated market OP. You don't need any sort of permission to make all sorts of stuff for firearms or anything else, from complex to simple. But most people don't. I've made my own kydex holsters and think it's enjoyable and you can get exactly what you want, but that's not how most roll. Most don't reload either.

      this is false. Some things cant be machined and have to be printed.

      Where can I find both of these for $99?
      You ought to catch up, as they are practically giving away printers. And they work for this task just fine.

        Well shit, they have gotten cheap. Still I would prefer metal and it's not hard to fab something.

          There are some anons out there doing God's work moving the 2A hobby forward at lightning speeds. .22 whisper pickles last indefinably, and the larger calibers are achieving some great mileage. You can stretch it way further by wrapping in fiberglass and epoxy, or epoxy inside a carbon fiber tube.

    >implying gun owners are actually willing to stand up for their right to own NFA shit like stoners were with weed
    >years after states started legalizing suppressors and SBRs on a state level like weed was, nothing has changed, you still can't buy unregistered cans anywhere

      The difference is lots of people pushing for legal weed were already smoking illegal weed and had no interest in stopping even if arrested.
      This is viable for weed because outside of some fricked states it's a slap on the wrist while black market machineguns aren't exactly a slap on the wrist and you are unlikely to even survive the arrest.

        You're right but I'd counter that by saying most gun owners do want suppressors to be legal especially after they use them for the first time.
        Marijuana cultivation carried a federal mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years, this is not unlike the sentence for unregistered NFA items. Yet you can get a job growing weed professionally in a ton of places.
        It's just sad that drug users won while gun owners lost.

        They don't really work well at all aside from on 22s and obscure the sights in almost every case.

    the only people that will bother are people with 3d printers who are already into guns and printing guns. suppressors are also relatively easy to throw together from parts kits, so you'd just get state-local kit manufacturers. I'd do it, because I print guns, but I also have normal suppressors.

        in OP's proposed situation you'd just buy a suppressor kit or cheap suppressor from a machine shop. the idea of the
        >interstate-commerce avoiding suppressor
        theory is that the Feds' jurisdiction extends to most things because they are part of interstate commerce. if you buy one made in your state and don't take it out of the state, you don't trigger their oversight, since there is no interstate commerce... in theory
        in that situation you'd buy either proper suppressor kits or full suppressors since they wouldn't be meaningfully regulated in your state. thus no tax stamp or waiting period. which is why I pointed out most people wouldn't bother. a cheap suppressor that takes a lot of noise and recoil off of the gun doesn't need to be particularly fancy, so most people could/would make do with something cheap. the lucky people with professional suppressor manufacturers in their states would have a boon, though.

      Nobody said repealed. Marijuana is still federally illegal yet enjoyed by millions of Americans with no fear of punishment because they understand how the American government system is designed, unlike gun owners

    I really don't see how these things don't blow apart or start to melt down after a very few shots.
    Literally anything would be better even aluminium tubes soldered with 40/60 tin solder used for electronics and you only need a small blowtorch
