Did you see the followup? It wasn't a gun trigger, it was a piece to improve the 3D printer... http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-manchester-24666591

Oh, thank you! I will edit the post and pass that on to where I saw the link originally.

I'd love to post this, but I don't see a clear statement of the correction.

Yeah that is a drawback with the BBC News site sometimes.

If you think of what kind of pressures that occur in the barrel of a gun to project a bullet to around 1200 metres per second, I can't imagine that the plastic material used in a 3D printer could possibly hold up without failure.

Yeah this was covered in an episode of CSI: New York (the last one?) where the polymer used was metallic and plastic in some way but the gun still exploded after two or three shots and the gunman suffered a lot of shrapnel injury.
