Rebels in Myanmar fight junta using 3D Printed Guns

A member of the PDF (People’s Defence Force) poses with a suppressed FGC-9 by Deterrence Dispensed, a 9mm semi automatic carbine which can be assembled anywhere in the world using a 3D printer and some steel tubing and springs from Aliexpress.

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.

FGC-9 Released

The FGC-9 is a 9mm semi automatic firearm which can be made using a $200 3D printer, some hardware store bits, airsoft toy spare parts, and a length of steel tubing for a barrel. It also uses a printable Glock 17 30rd magazine.

 

The FGC9 – A 3D Printed Semi Auto 9mm Firearm

The FGC9 is a 9mm semi-automatic pistol / carbine designed to be 3D printed and combined with some metal components including steel tubing and bar stock easily ordered worldwide. It is currently being developed by Deterrence Dispensed.

The DIY barrel on the FGC9 is made from steel tube which is rifled using an extremely simple DIY take on ECM (Electrochemical Machining) using salt water and electricity combined with a 3D printed spiral insert.

The body of the bolt is printed and contains two lengths of steel bar with one bar drilled for a makeshift firing pin. The FGC9 uses a 3D printed copy of a Glock 17 magazine developed by IvanTheTroll.

Like the original Shuty AP9, the FGC9 uses an AR fire control group. This will eventually also be printable.
