    It replaced my 27 and 23 as my carry weapon. Shoots great, a hack of a lot less recoil. As mentioned above comes out the box with good sites and a decent trigger. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    They didnít lift up until I was a few hours in. Remember .06 layer height. I was asleep when it happened and didnít check it until the next day when I got off work. It was a easy fix. I was able to use a soldering fun to reshape the slot and...

    printed the slide plates today, looks like my opening is 1/16 inch too narrow. Looks like just under 3 inches. This isn't measuring the groove but that flats of the opening. Looks like its time to file

    It will melt if placed in boiling water. Think what temp the extruder is when it is making the part. You could use a hot hair dryer most likely. Fine sandpaper or a fine file will smooth out some imperfections as well.

    The area near the ramp lifted up off the build plate. I will have to smooth that out some and might need to heat it and reshape it. And depending on how far off it is might need to fill it in (add additional plastic. The cool part with working...

    44 mag out of a snub isn't gonna be a lot of fun. Unless your shooting a very large dangerous animal I would look at something a little smaller in caliber. I have a mint 24 snub (44 sp) that I shot once and just isn't my cup of tea. On the other...
