The FMGC-01- A compact select-fire PCC for Europe

The FMGC-01 is a compact, select-fire version of the FGC-9 9mm carbine which is currently being developed in Europe to further counter gun control. Like the FGC-9 it uses 90% 3D printed parts mixed with metal bits readily available from any hardware store or Aliexpress.

But What about the ammo?

People simply buy ‘inert rounds’ from any surplus store and reload them using powder from nail gun blanks, a process which has been extensively documented in a guide released by Deterrence Dispensed. The primer compound in the base of the blanks is scraped out and used to reactivated the spent primers.

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.

Gun maker arrested in Saxony

A 75 year old German man in Saxony was recently arrested for home gunsmithing activities:

The Saxon police found four self-made weapons in a 75-year-old man from Zwickau. The man made the weapons with the help of a computer-assisted milling machine, a lathe, a 3D printer, welding equipment and other tools, as the police in Zwickau announced on Friday.

The police became aware of the suspect in connection with an international investigation into the fight against the illegal arms trade. The 75-year-old had ordered weapon parts that were prohibited in Austria. Officers then ransacked his home.

As a marksman, he legally owned four long guns and three short guns. He also had a permit to reload ammunition independently. However, the investigators also found five illegal weapons in the suspect, four of which he had built himself.

In addition, there is therefore an urgent suspicion that he manufactured silencers and other weapon parts. Among other things, 34 gun barrels, various grips, locks and several thousand rounds of ammunition were found during the search.
