Mikhail Kalashnikov dies at 94. Eerie just how much of an impact this man had, and always will have on the world. Where would the third world be without AK-47s?
After the initial launch of the 3D printed Liberator handgun, gun geeks are now trying variations of the design, with the result being the first 3D printed rifle. It’s not scary—it’s just a small .22 caliber rifle, but it’s a step towards an evolution in 3D printed firearms.
AMMO, a photo series by Sabine Pearlman shows the guts of 900 pieces of ammunition. The cross-sections display the intricate and surprisingly beautiful designs of these bullets.
The artist says “the cross-sections reveal a hidden complexity and beauty of form, which stands in vast contrast to the destructive purpose of the object. It is a representation of the evil and the beautiful, a reflection of the human condition.”
After months and months of trying, the founder of Defense Distributed has created the world’s first completely 3D printed handgun. It hasn’t been fully tested, but it is entirely made of 3D printed plastic.
