Yet a different 3d printing publish

prior to now I talked in regards to the Ruger 10/22 Charger

appears sorta like this:

shooting with a scope without a relentless cheek weld was sort of disturbing to me. So i ponder what it could be like to are attempting a pistol brace on this firearm.

at the moment it looks like many braces are working around $200ish or more. At that expense it essentially makes more feel to register it as a brief barreled rifle. I don’t wish to spend that sort of funds on this, nor do I need to get a tax stamp for it.

So how could I are trying a brace on the low cost?

Que up the printer.

I regarded even though the diverse info I had downloaded there turned into a buffer tube connected to a picatinny rail connector. It became packaged within the FUAC-eleven information via DingoDaze, and they credit:
“The blanketed buffer tube extention for stock or brace a modified picatinny rail connector from xz82net on thingiverse.”

So I printed it off. I suppose I used 20% infil, I don’t keep in mind how long it took, nevertheless it charge me about $2 in plastic.

It printed very nicely. I set the conclusion of the tube on the print plate in order that it printed upwards with the mount at the excellent. The support fabric very effortlessly peeled off. There became one zit of fabric on the tube that had to be damaged off, but previous that it became a extremely clear and simple print.

This print need a bolt and nut to cozy the clamp. I took it to the native hardware store and i discovered that the model is set up for a M3 bolt and nut. however want a 30mm lengthy bolt, and my local store handiest stocks up to 25mm lengthy.

Humpth!

I found an imperial size screw that very nearly work, however not reasonably.

once I received domestic, I remembered that I had a bunch of bolts and screws and stuff let over from my first two printers. So I searched notwithstanding those parts however no success. loads of M3x25mm bolts, but no M3x30mm.

Then I remember that the Prusa printer got here with spare ingredients. They saved the day and that kit had an area M3x30. (I feel it had two, but I best crucial one.)

I throw this on the Charger and placed on a SBA3 brace and it makes for a effortless equipment.

unfortunately, it didn’t dangle up lengthy. retaining the firearm through the brace the Ruger fell off of the mount.

the manner I printed this left the layer traces parallel to the clamps. The rail grabber failed alongside those layer lines.

if you appear close, which you could see how the rail grabber break up.

Oh neatly, I’m out two bucks worth of plastic, and i comprehend i like the concept the think of a cheek weld on this gun.

I might print this with a stronger infill in a distinct orientation to be better, or I might redesign. Or I may take the design of the tube and add it to a rail attachment I already have. I might just destroy down and purchase a brace.

no longer sure what i will do, nonetheless it is high-quality to have alternatives.
