May I ask how you printed these parts? With or without supports? How many shells? Infill? Layer height?
I've been having a helluva time getting most of these parts to fit properly, and using supports and then removing them (which is an INCREDIBLE pain) seems to make the fit even worse. Thanks in advance.

I have a http://pp3dp.compp3dp.com based printer (Afinia / UP! Plus), so I can't translate my settings into your shell/infill ethos.
The barrel is probably the hardest part, so I will address that.
My first print (which ultimately failed, but made an interesting cutaway piece) was printed at 45º using a standard (cheap) silver 1.75mm ABS filament, extruded at the default temperature of the printer (268ºC, probably way too hot for this ABS).
It is not a good filament at those temperatures, and it tends to extrude "too thick."
My second print was done vertically, but I had to reduce the barrel length to fit within the 140mm build cube of the UP! Plus. That was printed out of natural (or white?) 1.75mm ABS at a more realistic temperature.
With regards to fit – I used a sharp kershaw knife (just a pocket knife) to widen a few holes, then a soft hammer to pound the pins in. The smaller pins didn't really work for me.
I would recommend printing the trigger guard slightly bigger than it really is, then bend it to fit – it should stay in place from the sprung pressure.
Regardless of the issues with printing and filament, my barrel does turn, and my hammer does cock.
I have not tried to print the piece in a standard ABS filament, as I aim to slightly change the bore size and chamber length to accept Goblin Carts before I reprint.

I simple assigned a transparent (glass or plastic or somesuch) texture to the body when I rendered it. You can download a copy of Artlantis for a free 30 day trial.

Where could i find a copy of the image you used above? I'm working on a Samaritan based project and a transparent image like that would be incredibly useful.
