Defense Distributed, the company that has made a name for itself creating 3D-printed rifle parts and hosting them online, claims to have created the world’s first fully 3D-printed gun, and has already made the design available for download. The handgun, dubbed the Liberator, has 16 parts, 15 of which are made of plastic and were printed in a Stratasys Dimension SST (the 16th, a non-functional part designed to make the gun detectable by a metal detector, for compliance with the with the Undetectable Firearms Act, is metal).

Watch Defense Distributed founder Cody Wilson successfully fire the Liberator in the video above, and, if you’re into that sort of thing, download the design here.
