3DP90 Receiver Details
After long and anticipated “beta” testing the 3D printed P90, also known as the 3DP90 has been released to the public.
Developed by the 3D gun building group known as AWCY (Are We Cool Yet?) the 3DP90 brings a classic and eccentric firearm, ready to print at your home.
The 3D printed p90 attempted to go as close as possible to a 100% DIY firearm as possible. AWCY included instructions and designs including the lower receiver, clamshell, bolt, barrel, magazines, and even a hardware round counter.
While this is certainly not one of the easiest builds a 3D printed P90 is absolutely one of the coolest (no pun intended).
3D Printed P90 in the Wild
3DP90 Tech Specs
The 3DP90 is technically a One-Handed braced, bullpup pistol made at home and chambered in 5.7×28.
AWCY has included several configurations including a pistol, carbine, and rifle “Bullpup style” P90.
The 3DP90 has a combined firing test count of over 10,000 rounds and the developer reminds you to lube the bolt heavily due to its non-OEM design.
The “Halo style” round counter is another unique feature of this gun that will definitely turn heads and break necks at the range.
