TacHacker – Print Your Own AR-15 Magazines

Thursday, September 22nd, 2011

Crank, a member of Thingiverse, has created a series of models that when processed through a 3D printer and combined together function as a 5-round AR-15 magazine. The models include the magazine body, anti-tilt follower, and floorplate; you’ll have to design your own spring since the creator’s was omitted for ‘safety reasons’. Considering a 3D printer kit can cost around $1200, and each mag takes roughly 2 hours to construct, it’s not the most cost-effective/efficient way to get a hold of magazines, especially with such a low capacity. However, if you’ve ready access to a 3D printer then keeping a few disposable emergency mags like these can have their uses. Say, during an invasion of the undead persuasion?

Obligatory warning: If you do decide to undertake this project you do so under your own risk. Neither myself nor the creator of this project is responsible for anything that happens as a result of using this magazine.
