3D Printed AR15 Magazines Offered for Sale

Cuomo Mag

In its rapidly expanding role of protector of the people's right to arms, Defense Distributed is offering copies of the "Cuomo" its revolutionary 3D printed AR15 30 round magazine.

The magazine is designed to accept either hardware store or standard AR15 magazine springs, which need to be bought separately to make the magazine functional.

As a bit of political history, these magazines may prove to be a curio that either sparked the start of a revolution in 3D printer manufacturing, saved the Constitution by demonstrating the insanity of attempting to outlaw boxes with springs, or both. The current price is $50, higher than the price of a mass manufactured magazine.

I wonder if it would be possible to obtain one of these magazines, signed by Cody Wilson? 20 years from now it might make it into a museum.

The magazines are available here. They may not be shipped to CA, HI, MA, NJ, NY, or other places that ban the sale, transfer, or possession of "high capacity" magazines.
