3d printing is definitely the direction prototyping/production is going now. the latest i've heard about 3d printing metal is that it's enormously expensive and typically done at a large scale for complex steel joinery. powder (most antiquated of the processes) is a pain in the ass to clean/excavate/cure and is generally weak and thus unfit for this type of application. Plastics are stronger ("sls" for example. as he mentioned in the video for the grip is a typical plastic 3d printing process) but again cannot perform at the same level as steel. I'm curious how much it cost them to produce the gun in terms of total time of printing
