this is an amazing project

Fantastic, i made one and it works so well

can you make a glock shaped version on this model,please?


does it work with Q tips?

This looks really cool and seems to cycle smoothly. If I could make a reccomendation, why not make the handle a little longer and make a compartment to store extra matches in?

Glad you liked it, thanks!
Good comment, I would be convenient to be able to store some extra matches.
In that case I think the whole design should be made a bit bigger or the proportions might be lost.
Maybe in the future. I would also like to see a remix with this idea, perhaps including a sight etc.

Not needed. There is normally a mirror function in most print tools. I use Repetier Host. Mirror the left grip and print again.

Why is there no stl for the left grip?

I also installed a spring, but without breaking anything because I did not read that ;D
But it was not that hard

To make the mecanism work smoothly I recommend printing it without any support. At least it works for me. Glad you managed to mount the spring. Happy shooting then!

Awesome upload! I bet this thing will come in handy when negotiating a raise. Or to relieve some frustration on your workmates when negotiations didn't go your way. ;)

Great work, keep'em coming!

Good idea. Will bring the gun to the next meeting with my boss. I can already see the raise coming..
