    Nice! It looks like they have a good understanding of acoustics and resonance. Excellent application of additive manufacturing.

  2. I keep thinking that when we see consumer-priced, desktop, 3D metal printers, that will shake the world to the core.

    One question: your article says “Unlike most monocore suppressors that sacrifice some muffling for the ease of maintenance and alignment,” which implies to me that these are made without the compromises for taking them apart and cleaning them. Cleaning has to be done, so how? Put it in an ultrasonic cleaner with some super-duper solvent?

    3d metal printers would be nice. Right now you can get, for a steep but not insane price, a desktop 3d printer that uses fiber reinforced nylon. (Fiber as in glass, kevlar, or carbon fiber.) I’ve been wondering how that would work for a receiver. Or a suppressor. For that matter, a suppressor made on a plain polymer 3d printer (no reinforcement) would presumably not last long, but how long is “not long”?
