mods @ezsasa @ALBY @LurkerBaba @Kunal Biswas dada and all,

wanted to ask this before going ahead,
would a thread on 3-D printed firearms-weaponry be accepted here ? Asking since i feel posting-sharing much info regd it would be a little dangerous or even involving legal things, though in this age and time every such info is available on internet at some clicks so yeah...
Go ahead👍🏻👍🏻. Couldn't u just post all those stuff in this thread itself? Or atleast post related stuff in this thread for some time and lets see whether it has much following, then only start a seperate thread. Otherwise like mnay other threads after few posts it may go into oblivion. Just my suggestion. U are free to decide whether start a new one or not.

3D printed guns will probably fall in the same category as tapancha, so best avoid it.

Can it be made?
Yes, not a big deal

But what you're pointing as "Mount to fix selector piece on right side" is probably something way more anticlimactic.

It may actually be a...ahem...ahem...rivet.

On the inner side it's simply riveted on the receiver. On the the other side it protrude like a stud. If you look closely then the distance between that protrusion and a round hole in the stock is same from the hinge.

That hole in stock contains a bent wire clip, and the head of that stud us hemispherical. So when the stock is folded it's retained by that pin and that bent wire.
That's it
🤷‍♂️ Yes that is "also" acting as folding buttstock holding pin here, basically it is Excalibur design being carried over here as it is,
BUT it is basically fire selector pin extended and protruding out from other side that would rotate around with fire selector, and can very well be used as a fire selector if something like that is affixed on it,
if you knew AK trigger group then it is already self-explanatory, very much similar thing to what is done here,

well i've seen some excellant examples that are just surprising,
but majority of them involve some core original (or reproduced) metal parts enclosed in 3-d printed receivers,
or they simply gather essential parts (barrel, bolt carrier, recoil spring) and remaining ones they made their own to make their own "plastic" version of original firearm,
and believe me some of the idea they have are so mind blowing...
for example, identify this, it is a 3-d printed shell of an actual firearm

apart from this they also make their own attachments to be affixed on actual firearms like their own sights, carrying handles and so.
btw the answer is,

Mac-11, see how this simple open bolt blowback SMG internals are used to make something extraordinary.

The pic is from Indo-French Ex Shakti 2019.
The soldier on left is indeed Indian with (most probably) Scorpio TGT.
The French soldier has an Fr-F1.

Don't just go around flagging "godzilla" & "idiot" 😂😂

i have my reasons to not believe that is an Indian guy with even newly inducted TGT rifles,
<a> the pic shows left guy holding a rifle with
- relatively thinner barrel profile
- similar profile tiny flash hider
- railed handguard section ends with flat profile

...and this is HK417 here used as DMR in french service

1632043492517.png


now, <b> those .338 lapua magnum chambered Beretta rifles that we bought,
- has quite thicker barrel profile,
- has giant muzzle brake to compensate recoil etc,
- handguards have this chisel shape front, also handguards are also wider
- rifle themselves are longer-bigger enough

so yeah, i don't think both guys are indian,
this meme originated from this tweet i guess, where french ambasaddor posted a tweet on 2019 Shakti exercise etc etc

need more convincing proof, until then it'll be 'godzilla' for me
