Tungsten lined, plasma arc heated, liquid steel sprayers might make printing steel guns possible. Once a few folks put their minds and resources to it... It's probably on the way right now.

I am starting to think this may be possible.  The day of the replicator is close at hand.  And then it is only a matter of speeding up the process and lowering the costs.

Well, it's a start. Could you imagine printing the WHOLE bullet? Think of printing the actual gun powder and the entire shell casing!
