3D printed gun files have been all over the news with lawmakers like Steve Israel, Ed Markey, Richard Blumenthal, Chuck Schumer, and others making largely inaccurate claims about how easy it is to print a gun. Further claims by lawmakers that the printed guns will be wielded by terrorists and criminals have fueled a rather heated debate.
Back in 2013 Defense Distributed was told by the US State Department that they wouldn’t be able to share the 3D firearm files on the internet due to an interpretation of ITAR. Why? Because the files and plans were being treated in the same manner as firearms being exported. In 2015, Defense Distributed filed a lawsuit against the State Department for violating their First Amendment rights.
Defense Distributed filed a lawsuit and solicited donations on their website to fight the State Department’s decision. On July 10, 2018, a settlement was reached that allowed Defense Distributed to put the files back online.
Days later a federal judge granted a temporary restraining order that blocked Defense Distributed from releasing the files on defcad.com.
Firearm Policy Coalition has set up the website codeisfreespeech.com so that potential 3D printers have an easy-to-reference source for the files. The website was taken down by Amazon initially but FPC has found a suitable host for the file-sharing site.
THE ONE BIG FILE
Google user Branwolfe1 has uploaded a giant zip file to Google Drive (you can find it here) that includes just about every 3d printing file and blueprint that you can imagine. If downloading a giant Zip file isn’t your thing, check out GetHub user maduce’s FOSSCAD Library or go straight to the FOSSCAD website and download the FOSSCAD Megapack.
Some of the more notable files are as follows:
- Flying Swallow Revolver
- Glock .22LR Revolver Unit (Attaches to accessory rail)
- Partisan Revolver
- Super Liberator
- Marvel Revolver
- Supreme Revolver
- Zig Zag Smart Phone Gun
- Zig Zag Revolver
- FOSCAD Bump Stock
- Ruger 10/22 Receiver
- AR15 Lower
Also in the giant zip file are plans for a drop in auto sear, suppressors, grenades and more. Keep in mind that 3D printing a gun isn’t an easy task and many of the files mentioned will likely not result in a working firearm.
