Description:

**F17 Update Notes: The F17 update fixes a few issues with the original FMDA G17 model - the mag catch spring fitment, slide latch spring fitment, etc.  For a full list of changes, check the F17 Update.md document.**

This is the result of several months of experimentation in order to have a base Glock platform that the gun community can design around. This had been done before in .22lr and then I was contacted by FreeMenDontAsk via Twitter where he told me he had a method for making 9mm Glock pistols that worked well. Much of his original work was lost in a computer crash so we recreated his work. 

The key to this project is the DIY-friendliness. Given the laws regulating the components of firearms, a Glock frame that is customizable is exactly what FOSSCAD needs. 

The system relies on a DIY metal rail system which is added to a printed frame. This results in longevity of use, reliability and safety, all while keeping the costs and complexity to manufacture low. 

The use of simple metal parts in combination with printed components holds a lot of potential for the future; FreeMenDontAsk is already working on other handgun models. Even outside of gun making, this could be useful for a wide array of printed projects. 

Now, this write-up will be thorough so bear with us. This Readme is broken into four sections:

1. Tools and Parts List

2. The Rails

3. The Frame

4. Assembly

5. Troubleshooting

The difficultly level of this build varies with the user. We are good with tools and I’d say this build is not any harder than making an 80% lower for an AR-15. As time goes on the gun community will gain a better understanding for this design.

 

**Note:** The included STL files are not high-poly. This should not show up in your prints but some may notice this in their slicer. If you wish to use high-poly STL files you can export them from the STEP orF3D files which are included in the parts folder.
