Obviously non-functional, but damn pretty (and not even done yet, the wood grips haven't been added) ...

3D printed schmoo should be able to handle the usual pneumatic pressures too I would say. A fella with an eye for is and a good file could add steel parts where needed, as has already been shown a number of times with other 3d printed stuff.

So why are we not seeing many 3d printed anything here? There's a few folks with lathes and mills, which are far less entry level than a $300 Chinesium printer, plus it's all the rave these days. There was a vortex cannon printed from Shapeways, Pneumaticcannons had some printed bits in his repeating hybrid, otherwise practically nothing I think.

Your friend (relative?) has done a very good job, I'm particularly impressed by the metal finish.

That's a shame, one could have started with a cheapo airsoft model as a base and built around it.

It also requires an understanding of 3D design, something which I personally have tried but really failed to become proficient at, while others seem to take to it naturally, I feel it's something you need a "knack" for.

But the cylinder pivots out and he is making rounds that fit the chambers.
