The Public Debate of 3D Printed Guns and Why You Should Care

Cody Wilson and his non-profit organization, Defense Distributed, have ignited an important conversation in the realm of public policy and opinion. I would suggest that you keep a close eye on the issue of 3D printed firearms and their related files/code as the outcome will be important to the future of our Constitutional Republic. This issue is fascinating as it bridges both the First and Second Amendments with major implications to both.

Why You Should Care…

There are a lot of reasons to pay attention but here are three questions that I am most interested in seeing answered.

How will this affect the First and Second Amendments? – This issue seems complicated to some only because of the technology involved. You don’t need to have a full grasp of the technologies to see what is actually at stake here and it is actually quite simple when you boil it down…

It is a violation of the First Amendment to prevent or limit the creation or sharing of code (the computer language behind the files necessary to 3D print anything). It is violation of the Second Amendment to prevent or limit someone’s right to keep and bear arms.

How will your representatives respond? – It will be important to follow what your elected representatives are saying and doing in response to these issues. They will be under pressure to respond and those responses will be an incredible insight into their willingness to either trample on or uphold the Bill of Rights. You can contact them as required and vote accordingly.

How will the Maker Community respond? – It seems that at-home manufacturing will be large part of our future in some form and “makers” are working on the bleeding edge of the technologies that will bring this to fruition. I will personally be interested to see how the larger maker community responds. It may be generalizing a bit but makers tend to be more self-sufficient than most and have a sort of open-source approach to information. They are exploding in numbers relative to the increased practicality and falling prices of 3D printers and table top CNC machines. Will this growing community stand by while their rights are limited or will this topic ignite something in them?

Don’t sleep on this issue just because you don’t code, machine, or 3D print. Your rights are under attack even if you don’t own a 3D printer. Keep your eyes open and stay engaged.



KDG AR-15 Upper Available Exclusively at Primary Arms

Made exclusively for Primary Arms customers, this barreled upper receiver from Kinetic Development Group comes pre-assembled with everything you need to build a high-quality AR-15. The only upper components missing are the bolt carrier group and charging handle. The forged upper receiver already has the dust cover and forward assist attached to save you the trouble of having to drive pins or losing springs. The 16” barrel with mid-length gas system is securely attached via the barrel nut of the 13.5” freefloat handguard. The handguard is the main feature of this assembly. It is the KDG MREX-AR handguard that is modeled after their highly popular handguard for the SCAR rifle system. The handguard profile is designed to be more ergonomic than a standard tube design and makes using a c-grip very comfortable. It has a flat bottom to give you a stable rest when shooting off a support and utilizes the M-LOK attachment system so you can quickly add and take off accessories. The M-LOK segments are located along the 3, 6, and 9 o’clock positions to give you plenty of room for customization. If you are looking to quickly build an AR-15 rifle, then look no further. This exclusive barreled upper receiver will satisfy your needs and more.


  • Barreled upper receiver exclusive to Primary Arms
  • Ballistic Advantage 4150 Chrome Moly Vanadium Steel barrel with QPQ nitride finish
  • Nickel Boron extended M4 feed ramp
  • Low profile gas block
  • Ballistic Advantage melonite gas tube
  • Includes KDG MREX handguard
  • M-LOK attachment points for lights, bipods, fore grips, and other tactical accessories

  • Hard coat anodized black
  • Forged upper receiver compatible with Mil-Spec lower receivers
  • Ballistic Advantage VG6 Delta flash suppressor/compensator muzzle device
  • Two quick detach sling mounts on either side of the handguard

This solidly built upper receiver is hard coat anodized black to give the aluminum even more protection against corrosion and wear. The barrel has a 1:7 twist rate combined with a mid-length gas system which gives it maximum versatility when shooting a bunch of different bullet designs and weights. The VG6 delta flash suppressor attached to the muzzle helps to eliminate muzzle flash to make it more pleasant to shoot in low light conditions and even works as a compensator to reduce muzzle rise. It has a black nitride finish and is heat treated to withstand the high gas pressures of 5.56 NATO.

SBA3 SplitFix from Lunar Concepts

The SBA3 from SB Tactical is an excellent piece of gear. It works really, really well as is but… If you really tighten down the arm strap in order to stiffen the forearm wings, the two wings can collapse on themselves which makes everything feel a bit mushy against the shoulder.

The new SBA3 SplitFix is designed to correct that. It is a replacement strap for the SBA3 that includes a keeper that wraps over the space between the forearm wings. This effectively binds them together so that the SBA3 can remain more rigid and keep it shape.

Check out the SBA3 SplitFix at Lunar Concepts.

The problem – the wings collapse together.

The solution – the SBA3 SplitFix’s keeper prevents the wings from collapsing.

SB Tactical FS1913 – Coming in September

The new FS1913 from SB Tactical is a left side folding strut with brace for pistols with a 1913 rail interface like the Sig MCX and MPX. The kit weighs just 10 ounces and includes everything necessary to mount directly to the 1913 rail including the hinge, strut, and brace. The steel hinge locks in both the open and closed position.

Vickers Tactical™ Carry Trigger for Glocks

TangoDown™ Inc. is excited to introduce the new addition to the Vickers Tactical™ product lineup! Join us in welcoming the Vickers Tactical™ Carry Trigger (VTCT). There are two (2) different models which accommodate the large variety of Glock™ models on the market (see below).

The VTCT is a flat faced polymer trigger. The flat faced trigger has become quite popular among shooters and offers the perception of a lighter trigger press. When developing the VTCT, the mechanical take-up was not modified. However, over-travel was shortened to offer a quicker reset, which allows for a quicker follow up shot.

The VTCT is made from the same material as the OEM trigger, so there isn’t the risk of wear/damage to the frame. The trigger is an insulator, not a heat conductor and will not get hot while spending the day on the range.

From Larry Vickers – “After using a pre-production prototype version of the new Tangodown™/Vickers Tactical™ Glock trigger on my training pistol for a period of time, I couldn’t be more pleased with the result. In fact, of the multiple students I’ve had try the trigger I’ve yet to receive a negative comment. The Tangodown crew hit this one out of the park and it is, in my opinion, truly the Glock™ trigger ‘Perfected’.”

The VTCT is easily installed in minutes by a Certified Glock™ Armorer.

For further details, visit www.TangoDown.com to learn even more about the Vickers Tactical™ Carry Trigger.

The VTCT-001 fits all Gen3/Gen4 Glock™ models 9mm (including the G43), .40, .45ACP, 10mm. Also accommodates the G42 .380 model.

The VTCT-002 fits all Gen5 Glock™ models currently on the market.

The 870 Covert-12 is 27.5″ long with a 8.5″ barrel, and is the smallest and most portable 12 ga you will find. The dimensions make it far easier to keep with you than even a stock tac-14 weapon. And it is just as legal as any other firearm.

This weapon is built on Remington Model 870 Tac-14. This is a NON-NFA, Completely Compliant and Legal ‘Firearm’ (technically not a shotgun). Transfers as “Other” on 4473. All potential buyers and users should check their state and local laws for legality, as well as insure their recipient FFL has been educated on the non-NFA nature of this product.

Covert-12 Details:

  • Remington 870 Barrel 8.5″ – Optionally ported for recoil reduction.
  • Bolt and Action Bar components tuned, polished, and finsihed in NP3.
  • Trigger group tuned for a crisp break, new springs added.
  • Steel Extractor installed for increased reliability.
  • Folding metal foregrip
  • Suarez Safety installed to improve engagement from Safe to Fire positions.
  • Weapon has a 3+1 Capacity
  • NP3 Follower Follower.
  • Brass front bead – Fiber Optic front sight in Green is optional.
  • Cerakote rust resistant finish for lubricity and durability under all conditions.
  • Rigid Magazine Tube Sling Mount.
  • SB Tactical Fixed Brace is standard – Folding Brace is optional.
  • Available as complete weapons or built on your Tac-14.


Charles Daly Honcho

Love them or hate them, there is no denying that the Raptor Grip from Shockwave Technologies has created a very hot market for short, non-NFA shotguns. Until now, that market has been mostly limited to the big players in shotguns – Mossberg and Remington. Now there is a new player wading in at a budget price.

Charles Daly is set to release the Honcho in .410, 20GA, and 12GA. All three have 14″ barrels with black polymer furniture. The 12GA and 20GA models have a section of rail on the handguard for attaching a light. All three models have a fixed blade front sight.

Like several other Charles Daly shotguns, these appear to be manufactured in Turkey. Their MSRP (around $300) is lower than the retail price on most other similar shotguns which may be enough to tempt those who have otherwise ignored the birdshead grip shotgun craze thus far.
