Someone took Defense Distributed’s ‘Liberator’ design, and modified it slightly. The new design uses metal screws instead of printed plastic pins, and it has a rifled barrel. It fires .38 caliber bullets, and it did it multiple times. It only costs about $25 to make yourself.
I’d ignore the Daily Mail’s stunt to get the gun through security onto a train. Of course plastic wont set off a metal detector, but it’s disingenuous to leave out the firing pin, and ammo. It also doesn’t account for new Backscatter technology.
Then there’s this …
Obviously, shotgun ammo will be easier than other ammo, but it’s a step in the right direction.
The airsoft crowd has got to be excited about this.
