I knew this would happen with 3D printing eventually:

From the description:

The final iteration of the 3D printed Banana Standard pistol is now fully functional. All major controls work perfectly, and all minor tolerances have been corrected. The only issue seems to be that the slide, in conjunction with the recoil spring, are too heavy to cycle properly with a suppressor attached. The frame was printed in PLA at 0.1mm layer heights.

Incredible.  According to the comments on the video, he even 3d printed the frame rails in 17-4 stainless steel.  As you know, the frame is the part with the serial number on it, so he’s making what the internet likes to call a “GHOST GUN”👻👻👻.  Although he could have used a Glock slide, he chose to use some aftermarket one in the videos.  The guy hasn’t made any comments on the long term durability of the PLA.

This is an older version posted last week, where he had some fun with the frame shape:

The guy also 3d printed a VZ61 Skorpion, from measurements he took off a de-milled parts kit and some old blueprints.

Oh man the aftermarket is going to have a field day once this becomes easier and easier to do at home, and the files become open source.  Naturally the lawmakers will be scrambling even more than they are now.

Thoughts?

If you would have told me 10 years ago that gun companies would be putting out advertisement videos where dudes were pushing their kids on a swing, moms taking the squad to soccer practice etc. I would have LOL’d so hard.

You can read more info on the G48 and G43X if you’re interested.  Available January 21st.

Is the silver slide something people want?  The custom Glock guys are going to be steaming mad they aren’t unique anymore, considering were already beat down once when Glock introduced the front slide serrations.  Oh what a time to be alive.  I really hope there’s some actual innovation for SHOT Show 2019 🤞.

LOL I find the fact this exists with free world wide shipping very hard to believe 😬:

$100 at Silencer-Sale and it’s 80%, and they ship “practically all over the world” with free delivery 😬😬😬.  This is the exact text from that page on the website:

  • Gen 1-4 model 17-41
    Requires rework is not a prohibited product since, it is in an inoperative condition 80% drop It is not illegal for individuals to own these parts in current form.
  • The customer and I are not required to inform.
  • Requires basic tooling to finish. Just replacing the backplate. This is a much more cost efficient way to own a full auto Glock.
  • The kit comes with instructions.,
    When sending out we specify as spare parts for a motorcycle, we deliver practically all over the world, the delivery is free of charge

Is this a Pooh tier / god tier honey pot?  Oh man I cringed so hard at the “we specify as spare parts for a motorcycle”.  So on their own company website, they are openly basically being like “Yea rather than put GUN PART on the customs form we’re going to lie and put motorcycle part just so it hopefully sneaks through… sound good potential customer?”  Ooooooof my soul.  The website is actually registered to someone in Russia if you hit up the WHOIS.  Turning a Glock from semi to auto there might be perfectly legal to do on any given Tuesday I don’t really know.  In the US there are SEVERAL more hoops to jump through to say the least if you want to keep your freedom and butthole safe.

These have popped up in the past on Amazon and various other fly-by-night websites, but they seem to disappear (thankfully) soon afterwards.

Oh and I’d be remiss if I didn’t also mention that there are MANY other products on the Silencer-Sale website.  You know, the usual basic stuff like AR-15 lightning links, baffles to retrofit airsoft silencers to various real calibers (7.62, .300, .308), baffles to change oil filters into suppressors, and even the classic Maglite suppressor retrofit.  YIKES fellas… yikes….

RIP to some people’s dogs in advance.  Thoughts?

A blank canvas for MoLoN LaBe, III% sauce, and numerous punisher skulls:

☝️ this is going to be a problem haha.  As you know I’m proudly team-stock-Glock, however I know a lot of you guys like the FLaiR and boost in social status that a Guccified Glock gives you.  I’m not mad at it, I got love for you either way.

Victory First makes these and they start at $200.

I should have known the overdone slide market would eventually crest, then the wave of “I need my overdone slide to be overdone differently than yours” would hit.  Man I’m so late sometimes, 20/20 hindsight you know?  Featureless slides are the new bitcoin.

Thoughts?  You going to cop one and get something the prosecution will absolutely love cut into it?  Yasss absolutely go off.

The piehitters though be like “EnDo I nEeD a GucCi FLaT TrIggUr To ShOw My SuPerIorItY aNd ShOoT GrOoPs Mo BeTTer”.  Look no further chief:

I know people have made the comparison between this sub-industry of 3rd party Glock “upgrades” to car modifications.  I guess that helps me stomach it a bit more, but I still don’t really like it because I’ve always thought of guns as tools.  I feel kind of old saying this, but that’s my feeling about cars right now too.  I’m VERY much over them.  I would much rather just be driven everywhere (Uber), giving me a chance to look out the window and enjoy the surroundings if I want to rather than be stressed about traffic and other idiots on the road.  To keep my ~5 star status, politely I tell the driver I’m going to throw on my noise cancelling headphones and “get some work done” (You know… shitpost on instagram, or to keep it real with you fellas likely find an exciting new tea to cop 😬😏) then boom I’m in my own world, head boppin, bumpin MO BAMBA making moves online looking up at the mountains or architecture every now and then.  After it seems like no time at all has passed, I’m at the destination (likely WholeFoods, a coffee spot or another random chill location) relaxed as ever.

Anyways I know that was a little rant, but whatever back to the trigger.  If your Glock trigger for some reason is ruining your life because the edges are radius’d just slightly more than you’d like… or the stock black color is making you the laughing stock of your group of friends and local range, then I suppose spending $46 on the Strike Industries one might be the easiest fix ever.  Jokes aside, if any Glock mods make you feel good about yourself you gotta do them bro.  Life is short… buy the ice cream scoop too while you’re at it.

I actually made a meme up today on instagram about Gucci Glocks, and the video reminded me of it:
