Urutau 9mm Carbine

The ‘Urutau‘ is a 3D printed 9mm bullpup carbine based on the FGC-9 which is currently being developed by a Brazil based designer. The Urutau is capable of semi-auto, full-auto and 3-round burst fire using a specially designed 3D printed fire control group.

Like the FGC-9, the design is intended to be easily made anywhere in the world by combining a mixture 3D printed parts combined with hardware store components. The bolt is simply screwed together and does not need a welder, meaning the gun can be put together entirely in an apartment by anyone with limited space and tools.

.38 Special Pistol

Interesting though I can’t quite work out what the charging rod tube below the barrel does. Perhaps it has something to do with the magazine. Perhaps it was added for the cowboy factor.

Crack Mac and Me phone home

Unsurprisingly: A man died after a confrontation with the Military Police on the afternoon of this Monday 24th in a locality known as Pitanguinha, in Simões Filho , in the Metropolitan Region of Salvador (Brazil). With him, a 9mm caliber submachine gun, 63 packages of marijuana, 26 cocaine pins and 16 vials containing crack were seized.”

Weapons of this particular configuration are hereby now officially designated and must be referred to as Crack MACs.

A typical favella narco gang loadout. The ‘General’ gets to pack the MAC knock-off where as his lowest ranking Lieutenant must work his way up to earn the privilege of getting a magazine for his ‘MADE AS ISRAEL’ Tec-9.

The folly of gun control in Brazil

The local gang armorers are pumping these things out in ever increasing numbers from a few dollars worth of scrap pipe and the authorities are helpless to stop it.
