This ‘Building Block’ Could Make Homemade Firearms Even More Practical

A Pennsylvania man says he’s found a way to make 3D-guns even more practical.

“It’s a really simple concept: It’s kind of a barrel integrated into the shell, so to speak,” 25-year-old Michael Crumling said. “Basically it removes all the stresses and pressures from the 3D-printed parts. You should be able to fire an unlimited number of shots through the gun without replacing any parts other than the shell.”

The ammunition has a thicker steel shell that contains a lead bullet an inch inside. That allows the shell to be able to handle the explosion from the gun as it’s fired without affecting other parts of the gun.

But the gunsmith’s new .314 Atlas ammunition does have its limitations.
