This is why it’s almost more useful to think of the Liberator not as an object but as an example of “design fiction”—the practice of devising plans for or prototypes of objects and systems that, while impractical, express some critique of the present or vision of the future. It’s a trendy strategy these days, but I’m guessing almost no one associated with it shares Wilson’s politics. Similarly, tech enthusiasts who have rhapsodized about the “disruptive” possibilities of 3-D printing frequently strike quasi-libertarian notes, but they have largely recoiled from Wilson and his Liberator.

The Liberator (Defense Distributed)


Hill submachine gun

Origin: United States of America

Date: 1952

Caliber: 9x19mm

This submachine gun, designed by John L. Hill of Texas, was very much the P90 before the P90. It utilized a flat magazine that was placed over the top of the body. Spent casings were ejected through the pistol grip. Hill’s submachine gun was tested and trialed from around 1952 until the late 60’s, but nothing ever became of it, whereas FN’s P90 that came decades later was met with considerable success, despite being an incredibly similar design.


Custom Draco .223

A heavily modified Romanian Draco converted into an SBR (Short Barrel Rifle). Note the top cover with a rail. That is the Texas Weapon System Dog-Leg Rail. It attaches to the rear sight base and is hinged to open upward.

that is an awesome build.

LOSOK Custom Arms prototype Mk 36

While I tend to focus on antique designs (partly due to personal preference and partly due to the fact that firearm designers were simply more creative in the past), there certainly are some strange new guns out there.

Here we have a prototype firearm that can be described as essentially an AR10-Garand hybrid chambered in 30-06. The lower receiver accepts a standard AR lower parts kit (whether 15 or 10 is not specified) and a standard AR buffer tube. The gas piston (and presumably bolt construction) are of the M1 Garand type. The weapon is described as having been built in order to offer greater range potential as compared to current 7.62 NATO AR pattern rifles, although it seems to me that the performance increase wouldn’t be all that much. Either way it’s a neat looking design and I have to applaud anybody trying out new and interesting configurations.

The LOSOK representative and designer of the arm claims in this video that Osprey Armament will market and produce the rifle. The only 30-06 rifle shown on Osprey’s homepage is, however, the Heavy Counter Assault Rifle: a joint Ohio Ordnance Works-Osprey Armament design (pretty much a modern lightweight M1918 BAR). It seems a little unlikely to me that Osprey will market both of these rifles, considering how similar of a niche they are both intended to fill.

This has my attention.

i-i don’t know what i’m looking at

Da fuq

If someone can actually say what this ss I will be pleasantly suprised

Custom (Hungarian) AMD bullpup in 7.62x25mm with 1911 Auto American Legend grips by Pachmayr.

The biggest question is… Is it legally a pistol? 

No stock, intended to be fired with one hand, and no easy way to facilitate the attaching of a stock. I’d say it’s legally a pistol if the receiver is marked as such and it was originally built that way. Falls into the same category as the Bushmaster Arm Pistol. No laws against bullpup pistols.

Sorry for the lack of activity. Been kinda busy lately. The end of the semester is a few weeks out, and with that comes many good things. Stay awesome everybody.
