First available for printing 3D-arms appears within two weeks


Founder of Defense Distributed (DefDist) Cody Wilson said that at present it is only two weeks away from a full-fledged printing firearms ABS-plastic on the 3D-printer .

As soon as Mr. Wilson prints weapons and make sure everything is working correctly, 3D-model details will be on the web and will be available to the public. That’s when everyone will be able to print themselves 3D-rifle.

Creation of 3D-arms, which will be in the public domain, is the culmination of the project DefDist Wiki Weapon. The project was launched in mid-2012 with a high, but perhaps a little misguided to show that the right of citizens to keep and bear arms provided by the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

Back in July 2012 DefDist printed the receiver of an AR-15 rifle, and in January of this year was printed to accommodate the store ammunition for the same rifle (video below).

Later, in March, Defense Distributed received an official license for the production of weapons. In other words, the company is now officially Defense Distributed allowed to distribute as drawings of parts of firearms, and to produce them.

Now, during an interview with Mashable, it turned out that Cody Wilson ready to start printing full of firearms.

Rifle called Wiki Weapon consists of 12 items. During the assembly Wiki Weapon there is only one metal piece – firing pin, everything else you can print ABS-plastic.

In two weeks Cody Wilson will produce the first copy of the rifle. According to him, the rifle is different original design, moreover, it is not a modification of the currently existing models of weapons. Most likely, the first prototypes will be able to make no more than two or three shots before any plastic part fails.

The 3D-printer can print everything except the hammer and ammunition. Pistol made entirely of plastic, will be invisible to metal detectors, contrary to the law Undetectable Firearms Act of 1988, which prohibits the manufacture of weapons invisible to metal detectors.

The government also has the right to impose restrictions on the use of 3D-printers to prevent “dangerous” weapons.
