Why you shouldn't 3D print an AK receiver (VIDEO)

While in theory it could be done, this guy shows why it really is a bad idea to go plastic on a Kalash.

Taking a milled AK receiver as a model for the plastic, he finished the gun with a standard AK parts kit, loaded it with Tula, and let it rip. Gratefully, he did the latter from a distance and behind cover.

While you can 3D print an AR-lower, looks like you need to stick to good ole stampings, milled steel or even surplus shovels when it comes to an AK.
