Printed on the 3D-printer firearm gun was available to download

It is now known that the first printed on the 3D-printer firearm handgun in the world, called the Liberator («The Liberator”), has successfully passed all tests and is available for download on the website of the creator-Defense Distributed.


More precisely, the available CAD-files that will help anyone with a 3D-printer, print yourself firearm gun . It is worth noting that the “Liberator” consists of 16 items, 15 of which are printed ABS-plastic on the printer Stratasys Dimension SST. Founder of Defense Distributed (DefDist) Cody Wilson bought a used 3D-printer Stratasys Dimension SST for $ 8,000. The only metal part is the firing pin.
For shooting “The Liberator” uses cartridges of 9 mm caliber, but replacing some parts, more likely to be adapted to the gun and cartridges of a different caliber.

The video above shows that the gun is strong enough. After one shot of visible damage to the “Liberator” was observed. NEW resembles single-shot pistol “Liberator» FP-45, which was produced during the Second World War. It is noteworthy that there is still no thorough evidence that point to the use of FP-45 in combat. In this case, there is evidence that during the Second World War was made more than a million guns “Liberator» FP-45, which were used to intimidate the enemy. Mr. Wilson hopes that his work will make the same impression on the U.S. government.

It is believed that at the moment is easier to buy metal weapons for $ 100 than to print ten plastic bullet guns. However, for many of the gun can be very attractive because of the property to remain invisible to metal detectors. Dismayed that 3D-printers are not static, and eventually they will become much more affordable and, most likely, will be able to print metal parts. ABS-plastic is very dangerous, so to avoid injury from exploding fragments interested people should definitely read the instruction manual before you start printing parts “Liberator”.

In order to circumvent the law Undetectable Firearms Act of 1988, which prohibits the manufacture of weapons invisible to metal detectors, the design of “Liberator” was added 170 g of steel.
