Glock 9/40/357/45GAP Floorplate by Caboose Nov 30, 2012

Description

Took some G19 magazines, removed the floorplate, measured and made in Blender (originally). New model made in Solidworks. I doubt they can take the pressure from the spring, even in an empty magazine. User beware.

I think we should remove everything, that would be safer for sure...and safety pins....those are also dangerous...propane tanks from your BBQ, you know they can be used as bombs and screw drivers?? I have about 20?? wait I also have a nail gun?? OMG I'm so dangerous right now!!! I'm turning myself in.............
I feel a petition is coming for media brainwashed people like yourself. Maybe you can have your own site "Being scared because the media told me so!" or something like!!!
Tested and works well, fits the g23 .40 sw factory mags. however i have had issue with getting the last round in the mag, the hole seems to need to be slightly larger i believe on the original copy of the file. I also did acetone vapor treat the parts before firing any live rounds in order to add strength, and i printed it just laying flat.

I'm not printing yours but I did mock one up for a S&W BG 380 Auto and it's more than plenty strong.  The trick is in the orientation when printing (stand it on end (the lamination in FDM printers should be perpendicular to the direction of force being applied for maximum strength.  If I had to guess I would say the floorplate I printed is as strong or stronger than the one that came with the magazine
 I'll print it out and experiment with that.  Orientation does make a big difference, no doubt. 
I don't own a glock - always wanted one - I like the way they shoot.  I don't know if you can see this but here is one I printed for a S&W BG 380.  Loaded magazine.

take your gun stuff else where please!
i feel a petition coming on to rid thingiverse of your models and followers. Maybe you could have your own site "Killing with plastics" or something like!!!

twellsdesigner,

I appreciate your comment, and I'm sorry that you feel these items I post are used for killing.  This is absolutely not the case, and I hope myself and other users use these items in a safe and legal manor. 

Let me start with all of these items can be used in a legal and safe means.  All of my items can be bought on the internet without going through an FFL.  You cannot get in any trouble for making any of these.  In short, any item I post will be unregulated by the US government. 

I am very much not overstepping my bounds.  The Thingiverse TOS says a good bit about what I can and cannot post.  Unfortunately, a "weapon" is not clearly defined.  Items that help create "weapons" are also not well defined. 

Let's be literal for a moment.  All knives on here are now weapons.  All forks too.  Ban them.  Any screw and nut could be used to make a firearm.  Remove them.  It ain't right is it?  Thingiverse would be bare.  Anything can be used as a weapon. 

None of my items are illegal to own or make, even in countries besides the United States.  In addition, this particular item might not even stand up to the force of the spring.  It is all just for fun.  Some users like modeling puzzle boxes, movie and video game props, but I like modeling firearm components.  Am I all that bad? 
They should remove any file pertaining to 3D printer parts too. I heard those can make weapons; Ya dont want that happening.
