Printable Gunmaker About to Test in Texas


The Wiki Weapon gunmaker claims it has almost all it needs, bar one permit, to start printing off pistols.

Last time Defense Distributed popped up on the radar, it was in connection with its 3D Printer, which manufacturer Stratasys had yanked from Defense Distributed as soon as it realized that the so-called Wiki Weapon gunmaker actually intended to carry through its plan to print off prototype pistols. Defense Distributed has overcome that hurdle, and now intends to complete its project in Texas.

Two Texas companies loaned Defense Distributed the technology it needed to finish its prototype and, in order to make sure the legalities were dealt with, the gunmaker applied for, and expects to be granted, a federal firearms license. Barring accidents, the prototype pistols should be in production and ready for testing before Christmas.
Cody Wilson, Defense Distributor's founder, claims that the project is all about individualism. "I'm really not some guy that's just trying to get everybody to print out a bunch of guns and roll out," said Wilson in an interview with Animal New York. "This is simply about, hey, look at your printable future."
