Who would have thought that someday we’d be using 3D-printed pistols designed half a century ago?
The Škorpion vz. 61 is a Czechoslovakian 7.65 mm submachine gun developed in 1959 by Miroslav Rybář, and it’s now being brought back to life thanks to 3D-printing technology.
Watch the video to see the 3D-printed pistol fire a test round.
It might have been given a 21st Century makeover, but it still uses the same 7.65×17mm Browning SR (.32 ACP) pistol cartridge, which was the standard service cartridge of the Czechoslovakian security forces.
Would you have any apprehensions about firing a pistol that was created by a printer?
