A Harlot seized by NSW Police yesterday while conducting random drug stops. Anyone can print one of these and simply add an airgun pellet to a .22 nail gun blank and have a disposable, concealable pistol.

A Luty SMG and Professor Parabellum box tube MAC-11 seized by New South Wales Police.
The improvised zip gun built and used by 41 year old army veteran Tetsuya Yamagami to assassinate former the former Japanese Prime Minister appears to be muzzle-loaded and electronically initiated. It appears to consist of two threaded gas pipes with end caps drilled to enable insertion of a wire which may be connected to a broken bulb or improvised electric match filled with black powder or match-head shavings to initiate a main propellant charge. Loaded in front of the charge would typically be paper wadding followed by ball bearings or other projectiles. A similar improvised muzzle loading gun was used to kill a police officer in South Korea in 2016.
