I made a simplified, support-material-free and vertically printed variation of the Thanhlon. Exterior profile is cloned from the Thanhlon, interior details are mostly removed. The same drum spring replacement is used, although I altered the anchor to better fit the newer U-bended springs that seem to have replaced the V-bended springs, although either can be made to work in both thanhlon and EZ talon.
175 mm tall and goes to 11, I haven't made extensions yet and haven't had great results with them in the past.
As it stands I can print the whole assembly of 2 parts in under 2 hours with a printer that isn't fast.
EZ Talon (mine) is here https://www.thingive...m/thing:3730115
Thanhlon (Than's) is here https://www.thingive...m/thing:3460408
I would upload the files here as well, but the upload system won't accept .step files or solidworks files. In this case they're not great, owing to the complicated origins of the model, but still needed for basic manipulation like extending or reducing the magazine capacity, which many users may need to be able to print this or go to larger numbers.
It's a working mag, but it's not a well tested design at this point. It's not expected to be as tough as a real talon, and probably not as tough as a thanhlon due to printing orientation. All mine have been printed in ABS so far. It's fairly difficult to stop the follower by squeezing the magazine, but it is possible if you squeeze hard and in the middle. Still they should be fine with normal use, even used as a handle or duct-taped together in a jungle mag.
edit: These use the drum replacement spring from foamblastshop.com, just like Than's magazines.
