Hey remember that FP-45 Liberator? Yeah so stop copyrighting it.

It’s equal and or easier to make a single shot gun out of steel tubing, nail and spring which anyone can do so who tf cares, amazing it can be done but isn’t gonna cause a mass amount of weapons on the streets lol btw CNC machines could do nearly the same thing but in metal/ a real gun😂 and semi / full auto

Do you need supports to print it?

It's the 5-0 September 11, 2019 - 6:19 AM

Really a single shot 22 I could go to Wal-Mart buy an axe and have something way more dangerous.

Drew Berning September 16, 2019 - 8:42 PM

I can spend 20 bucks at home depot and make a better gun

There are many books and instructions all over the internet detailing how to make bombs, flamethrowers, etc. One example is "The Anarchists Cookbook". Just because the information is public and available to everyone doesn't mean that everyone is going to start making homemade bombs and flamethrowers.

Its a crappy one shot pistol that fires a small caliber … I would rather a criminal use this than a real gun … Or even just a car … Hell you dont get one shot with a knife

DEAN WATERS December 16, 2019 - 10:49 PM

It's only the handgrip and frame made from plastic. The structural parts are made from steel.

The company can't legally take their printer away because they "didn't have a firearms manufacturing license" because you need to be selling firearms to be considered a manufacturer.

I would like to point how objective the speaker and the writer is and how much I respect them and love this channel for that

If you simply want to blow your own hand off, and not use it for an nefarious reasons then by golly go right ahead… others have stated that there are easier ways to make slam guns/improvised guns then going out and buying a decent 3d printer, learn that specific slicer, account for tolerances and printer variations. Find decent filament. Then spend 36 plus hours printing said gun, buying additional components to shoot a single shot that will blow your damn hand off more often than not… you literally can buy an AR15 for 500 bucks,(probably less in cost than the printer and materials needed to make a hand go bye bye toy) it's stupid to legislate 3d printed guns, it not only infringes on the 2nd amendment it will stifle an industry that will literally change the way of life in the next few years.. I cant count how much money I've saved having a 3d printer… toaster knob breaks, print a new one… need a bracket for a shelf, print one… politicians need to understand that more laws just make it harder to enforce and regulate. There will always be a way around said law… and in the end who does it hurt? Law abiding citizens. I don't think a gang or organized crime members are flocking to microcenter to buy up all the 3d printers to start mass producing plastic guns that are as reliable as a 1982 Yugo.

kirbyforlife420 August 21, 2020 - 7:15 AM

it would be nice you make one and then just register the gun as 3d home made and test it and give it the ok. no big deal

Richard Harding August 27, 2020 - 7:13 AM

Y’all know for less than $20 you can build a shotgun at Home Depot right?

What is your purpose to publish this? Share videos that are more beneficial to humanity. LIBERATOR is committing a complete crime against humanity.

Primalist September 8, 2020 - 5:17 AM

Nick clickbait. The video doesn't even show the firing of the gun. Reported.

Dominic Ferraro October 9, 2020 - 10:43 PM

When I first saw the gun I didn’t think it was real

The Shadow Man November 3, 2020 - 5:56 PM

And now it's possible to 3D print carbon fiber and metal. Get ready for some really big stuff.

This might sound like a silly question. But wouldn't the bullets also set off the metal detector if the gun don't.

LA Patriot December 28, 2020 - 5:43 AM

Wait, the barrel itself isnt steel? Wow!

What should we ban now? Fully semi automatics? All guns? Plastic required for 3D printing? 3D printers? What next?

the Issu I see with this is, you guys have the 2. amendment, not every boddy dos. I live in a cunty where im not allowd having a fire arm*1, but the internet dsnt care where your from 😒.
the best way in my eyes, is a spetial side for gun files, only ecesseble in cuntys that are allowed firearms*2 .

*1 there are ecseptions but its realy hard in germany to posess a live firearm my estemet <2% of people have the lisens to ohne one.

*2 Yes I know about proxy severes and simmeler options on VPN provieders, so …
😑 its the best I can think of 😅
