    We meet at NATS Oakboro 2021. Your Schleswig-Holsten is a great little BB. These guns should be perfect in my Lil Sharny alomg with your rotate setup.
    I gave you my card with my contact information. Drop me a line so I can contact you off line with questions.

    I picked up a resin printer a little while ago and have printed a couple of your LPC guns with it. I'm looking forward to printing and trying this one.

    What specific resign are you using? I'm doing most of my stuff with Elegoo ABS like grey. It is initially pretty nice but seems to get more brittle over time. I have also used eSun ABS like resin in black. It is stronger but the smell is terrible. Next I plan to try a 50/50 mixture of the Elegoo ABS like with some Siraya Tech Blu.

    Honestly I don't know. I asked a friend to print a few cannons a few months ago, when I was trying to diagnose a feed issue with an earlier version. I only fired a couple hundred rounds through it, and haven't done anything with it since. I have no idea how long they'll last. If you have a FDM printer, I would recommend using that instead. The current batch of cannons in my PDNs are two years old and have fired thousands of rounds in a wide variety of conditions.
