Looking more like a hairdryer than a conventional firearm, the Liberator was made with a 3D printer bought on eBay for £5,000

he world’s first gun built with 3D printer technology has been successfully fired in America.

Made of plastic, the terrifying innovation in theory enables anyone to manufacture the pistol and smuggle it on to planes or across borders.

Looking more like a hairdryer than a conventional firearm, the Liberator was made with a 3D printer bought on eBay for £5,000.

Makers Defence Distributed fired it for the first time on a range near Austin, Texas, at the weekend and vow to put blueprints online.

The gun was made by first creating a 3D image of the firearm using graphics software which then slices the image into hundreds of ultra-thin horizontal layers.


These are printed using a laser which cuts each piece and fuses it to the previous layer with resin until it is complete.

Only the firing pin, a nail that can be bought anywhere, is made of metal.

Defence Distributed chief Cody Wilson, 25, said: “There are states all over the world that say you can’t own firearms and that’s not true any more.

“I’m seeing a world where technology says you can pretty much be able to have whatever you want.

"It’s not up to the political players any more.

“I recognise the tool might be used to harm other people – it’s a gun.

"But I don’t think that’s a reason not to do it or a reason not to put it out there.”

The development comes as President Obama battles for stricter firearm controls in the wake of the Sandy Hook School massacre in Connecticut which left 26 shot dead.

US politicians on both sides of the divide have already called for laws to outlaw the Liberator.

Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer labelled the innovation “stomach-churning”.

He said: “Now anyone – a terrorist, someone who is mentally ill, an abusive husband, a criminal – can essentially open a gun factory in their garage.

“It must be stopped.”
