From left, U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Brandon Murray, 20th Security Forces Combat Arms Training and Maintenance non-commissioned officer in charge, Tech. Sgt. Nickalos Richards, 20th Fighter Wing innovation lead, and Staff Sgt. Eric Reader, 20th Fighter Wing alternate innovation lead, test a 3-D printed M-4 Magazine Speed Loading Ram (MMSLR) at Shaw Air Force Base, S.C., Nov. 8, 2023. Richards acquired the design from OpenHive, an online military 3-D printing repository, which allows any U.S. military unit in the world to download 3-D printing designs and produce them at their local innovation lab, making acquisition times more efficient and increasing mission readiness.
