Our goal is to design weapon systems that you can 3D print with low cost and accessible equipment. The designs are always free and available for anyone to use. Decentralized manufacturing for a hitherto centralized industry.
Design development is supported when you purchase build kits from us. Kits are a convenience, never a requirement. To maintain the decentralized model, parts can always be sourced elsewhere.
Providing information that enables you to understand how the process of manufacturing your own weapon works is important. We include detailed documentation along with released designs. In addition to this, information is being compiled online for you to learn from.
If you have any questions, we would be glad to answer them.
Below you will find images of some of our projects.
Creep test with Overture Easy Nylon. Annealing almost completely eliminated the creep problem.
AR-9 Prototype with built in support.
A separated 9 MM case. This is the result of a too light buffer in an AR-9.
Printing a TPU butt pad for a Gen 2 Stock.
Old style Gen 1 AR-15 swivel pin plates.
Buffer Bands fresh from the plating shop.
New stock system is ergonomically correct and has a positive retention method.
5.56 x 45 spent casings after a day at the range.
A collection of 3D printed AR lowers. LR-308, Double Rib, AR-15, and AR-9.
Double Rib Lower after a range day. Taulman Glass Fiber Nylon.
V2.5 LR-308 Lower. This is a great lower, the V3.0 grip is nice as well.
Assembled V2.5 LR-308 Super Lower waiting for it's upper to be built up. KAK bolt and Aero Precision upper and handguard.
Test piece for testing different design parameters.
New buffer band prototype.
Square nut insert shortly before being imbedded in the print.
3D Printed AR-15 and LR-308 lowers with the Gen 1 Stocks.
The first functional AR-15 Lower printed by Hoffman Tactical.
I've had a lot of issues printing with the Push Plastic Carbon Fiber Nylon recently, but it makes for great prints when it works.
V1.4 LR-308 Super Lower with the Gen one stock and grip.
An interesting experiment. AR-15 Super Lower printed on a resin printer from eSun Hard Tough resin.
