    Anyone 3D Printing AR-15 Armorer's Blocks & Fixtures?

    I have a few .stl files that I would like to get printed to use in AR builds, I can email the files as I am not sure if we can post files on the forum.

    A vise block that holds the lower securely in a vise, a hammer block that lets you dry fire against the block without damaging the lower receiver, a block that holds the lower receiver while you drive in (or out) the trigger guard retaining pins, and an upper block that holds the upper securely in a vise that is a safe and correct way to hold it while installing or removing a barrel.

    I would be very interested in having these tools made fairly quickly if possible..
    Got a .22 .30 .32 .357 .38 .40 .41 .44 .45 .480 or .500 S&W cylinder that needs throat reaming? 9mm, 10mm/40S&W, 45 ACP pistol barrel that won't "plunk" your handloads? Shoot me a PM! Also on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Cylinderhone-756429174391912/

    Hey
    While I can print it. It would not hold up. You want a injection molding part. The 3d printed one would most likely be snap it crack with the pressure of putting a barrel on. + Cost wod be at minuime 25 bucks for a roll of petg.

    I could do the hammer block and guide though those should fair ok.
