Lets all be part of this and learn something. Subscribe to the Blog. email us at opensourcegun @ gmail.com and let us know what you can do.
Yea, we are closer than you think with a 3D printed gun. The design is in the works for a 3D printer to print a gun. And even making a Printer that can print other printers! Yes amazing I know. The Torrent file will be put out and anyone will be able to print the gun. This is amazing. The Goal I had here for an Open Source design was to be more like how the AR-15 is today. Any one and everyone is making parts. A community would come together to be like “we need this kind of steal here and plastic is just fine hear. No need for this to be aluminum.” The Design would be our own and not another AR-15 copy that has a kitchen skin on it. That is the way I would like to see it. Testing this and that. The cost of entry may be too high. We would need a lot of engineers. I will blog about it for now.

Open Source Gun is going to be a web site community of information about firearms and products. Participants will be able to quickly look at the data gather and understand if a product is for them or not. (it is not that yet, see below why) Open source gun needs your help. we need your knowledge, experience but not your opinion. Open source Gun is not another form. That is why we don’t want Opinions but there will be a place for that. We would like to know from 500 gun owners that they are having issues with this gun and this ammo. Data like “gun was lubed up when this gun had this issue with this ammo?”
Has this gun shot 1000 rounds without being cleaned and have no malfunctions? Very inexperience people will be able to find a gun for them.
Goal 1: Grow the Open Source Gun Community.
Goal 2: get the web site up and going with data collection, and we all learn from that data.
Goal 3: design a Open Source Gun that the community designs.
Well it is a web site that has a lot of issues. This site is run by Glockman1727ak47 (that is me!) I am a budding programer. that is why things look the way the due. Why is open source good and why is it bad? It is good because the best ideas come forward. When it is bad there is not enough support and involvement from the community. We really need you. We are using WordPress because it is has a great Community and is what we know. Through sharing knowledge about guns we protect our rights and we can protect ourselves with the knowledge we have.
Welcome to Open source Gun Blog. Oh yeah we are just getting started. Podcast coming soon! We all about Open Source stuff and we want to open the knowledge up to you and everyone.
We are not opposed to making money. But we wont stand for BS marketing. You will not find the secret ninja tactic you only heard about in movies. We want this to be the real deal.
