“A Canadian tinkerer who previously claimed to have created the world’s first 3D-printed rifle, only to see the barrel crack upon its first videotaped test firing, has now created an updated version of the gun that was able to fire 14 rounds before suffering damage,” theverge.com reports. “But the weapon, .22-caliber long rifle made out of ABS+ plastic dubbed “the Grizzly 2.0,” still ended up developing a crack after the 14th and final shot. It’s also quite cumbersome compared to modern automatic firearms, as it requires reloading after every shot. Matthew [no last name] further noted that the spent bullet cases were difficult to remove, requiring him to unscrew the barrel and shove a stick into it in order to get them out.” Improvements? Yeah, he made a few . . .
Matthew said he improved upon his first design of the Grizzly by making the barrel 50 percent larger, increasing the size of the receiver (the main portion that holds the firing mechanism), and adding groves to the inside of the barrel.
The gun control paradigm may not be dead, yet, but it’s sure looking a bit green around the gills . . .
