Meet “The Liberator”: The World’s First Fully 3D-Printed Firearm
by Michael Krieger
3D-printing, like decentralized crypto currencies, have the potential to change the world in which we live in extraordinary ways. Ways that are almost inconceivable at this point given we are so early in the game. More than anything else, these technologies can empower the individual like never before, and we think that is generally a very good thing. We first covered the impact of 3D-printing on the firearms industry in January, where we discussed Defense Distributed’s success in printing magazines for semi-automatic weapons. At the time, their next major goal was to print a fully functioning firearm. They have now done just that.
