Daisy 880 parts ?


I don't know much about 3d printing but was curious if it would be possible for somone to 3D print the reciver and have it with a picatinny rail instead of a dove tail and possibly some way for it to have a stronger stock ?
Again I'm not very well informed about it but I see people 3d printing AR recovers so figured I'd ask.

Possible, yes.  However, unless one already has a 3D CAD model of the receiver, all the remaining original features would need to be designed.  That represents a significant amount of work. 

As getting one's hands on the factory 2D drawings seems unlikely, a receiver would need to measured very carefully, and all the features added to a 3D part model.  A slight shortcut could be 3D scanning the outside of the receiver as a starting point.

Designing some kind of Picatinny to dovetail adaptor that one can print and then attach to receiver seems like a lot less trouble.  You could even add 10 or 20 MOA drop compensation so the scope can live closer to mechanical zero.

There are dovetail to picatinny adapters.

Yes there are.  The OP seemed eager to print something, a few moths ago.  In any event he seems to have lost interest in his own thread since then.  That seems like a prompt for me to unsubscribe from it.
