As reported by infowars.com a 3D printed rifle has emerged which was tested and sustained 14 shots fired before developing a minor crack. The rifle was apparently 2nd generation. A previous version had cracked after a single successful fire. The creator has plans to distribute an improved version online, resembling a trend set by Defense Distributed and others which has long been anticipated by anarchists and technology buffs. Videos of the test firing are available in the linked article or on YouTube among other places.
