Australian police seize two more FGC-9s

New South Wales police apparently seized two more 3D printed FGC-9 pistols this week as part of raids on an international crime syndicate. According to the reporter each can fetch over $25,000 AUS. If that’s anywhere near a street value that’s not bad for a few dollars worth of PLA and a bit of steel tubing which quoting the officer “can be done anywhere, anyone’s garage, anyone’s bedroom with the right software and printer”.

Now that owning toy ‘gell blasters‘ carry the same sentence as an illegal firearm in some Australian states, perhaps these will start to fill the void.

    Highly unlikely these guns were built in Oz. Despite the hoopla about the FGC-9 it requires an M4/M16 trigger group. Good luck finding that in Oz. Printing receivers is one thing but the innards need precision made metal parts. Works OK in the US where such parts are freely available. I expect the weapon was made O/S and shipped in. The low metal content would have diminished chances of detection. Otherwise it could have been made locally and the internal parts shipped in. Either way, there is zero chance this was 100% made in Oz.

      you can use airsoft trigger control groups which I would imagine would be similar to some gel blaster trigger control group. And even if they couldn’t get that wouldn’t it be easier to just smuggle the trigger group in and print the rest?

    Stupid dumbass cops called them submachine guns in their public address, said they can fire full auto, no buddy, they can’t. The perps either printed these for sale or for personal defense, either way they needed it for one reason or another, I’d manufacture one of these if it meant one less rapist or extremist that could potentially harm or kill me
