American develops bullets for semi automatic weapons 3d printers




An American has developed a bullet that would cause less damage to plastic weapons that are made with a 3D printer. The sleeve is of a thick layer of steel, so that the force created by the firing of the bullet can be taken care of.

American Michael Crum Ling claims that he developed bullets cause cracks or deformation in a plastic weapon. That would not happen even if the cheapest materials are used, so writes Wired. In order to ensure that the American uses a sheath of steel, in which the ball is almost 2.5 inches deep packaged. Would the building when a shot sturdy enough to the power of the shot catch and damage to the fragile plastic materials occur.

The method of the man appears to be effective, but it is time-consuming. It costs the American an hour to produce only one bullet. On the other hand, cost of the required materials only about twenty cents and a sleeve can also be used multiple times. A ball after a shot can be re-placed in the housing, and the shooter can use the weapon again. Powder should be of course be added to the ball again.

The latest design of a firearm that is put using a 3D printer Crum Ling together has no top. When the gun disintegrated in a previous test, it was found that the result of the movement created by the shell casing. The sleeve without the top jump from the weapon on its own. Crum Ling thinks his balls make it possible to use 3D printers to produce semi automatic weapons and, where legal, even fully automatic weapons.
