“Police raided a house in the Toowoomba suburb of Harristown on Thursday and found a shipping container with a large range of equipment inside. Officers said they discovered manufactured weapon components, tools such as a drill press, grinders and welders, drawings, templates and a computer with manufacturing instructions. Police said a quantity of methylamphetamine and smoking utensils were also found. ABC”
A widely copied model very similar to those produced in an underground workshop raided in 2016, though appearing to be of better quality than most other examples from this increasingly widespread ‘family’. Typically seen are parts such as the barrel, bolt and trigger being made from easily work-able brass allowing manufacture with minimal tools and skill. This example, chambered in .380 ACP was seized following the pursuit of a suspected drug dealer in Minas Gerais earlier this month.
