The TacDaddy is a 9mm Carbineish Blowback pistol and is the successor to the MacDaddy/Tac 9.
The TacDaddy was designed to have parts that are easy to find and cost-effective.
The design of the TacDaddy is also one of the cleanest and overall slick designs when it comes to the carbine/pistol category.
The documentation is thorough yet concise making the TacDaddy a great build for 3D gun printing pros and novices alike.

Suggested 3D Print Settings
- TacDaddy Magwell/trigger guard on the print bed.
- Rotated L/R 45 degrees
- You can try others if you like. It’s not overly sensitive to orientation. This one provided the fastest and most sturdy prints.
- It should fit on the standard ender 3 or 5 print bed pointed from one corner to the other.
- make sure your bed is set to 235×235.
- Check that your build plate adhesion settings are “none”
- Infill: 100%
- Walls/Shell: 6-8
- Layer: .16 – .2
Tree supports may cause issues when interacting with the outside edges of your print bed. I would advise against using it but I’ve also had it work well.
