Lock, stock and a smoking printer? UK police seize ‘3D-printed gun parts’

by:Tuowei     2019-09-10
Allegedly gun parts were found along with 3D printers, when officers of the Greater Manchester Police force conducted a search on Thursday in the Baguley area of wynshawi in southern Manchester.
If these parts prove to be legal, bankruptcy will represent the first
The next seizure.
The weapon is almost entirely made with a 3D printer made of plastic, creating the possibility of escaping the detection of metal detectors at airport security checks.
Fire specialists are now conducting forensic checks on these components to determine if they can be used to build functional equipment.
A man was arrested on suspicion of making gunpowder and is currently being detained for questioning.
Police are concerned that these weapons may have been manufactured privately by criminals in their own homes, so they evade the detection of security scanners at airports and other high levels. risk targets.
\"If what we have seized turns out to be a viable and constituent building a real gun, then, it proves that organized crime groups are getting the technology they can buy on the street to produce the next generation of weapons, \"Detective Inspector Chris mothorpe of Greater Manchester told Sky News.
\"In theory, the technology basically allows criminals to produce their own guns privately in their own homes, and then they can provide these guns to criminal gangs that cause this pain in our community,\" he said.
\"Because they are also plastic, X can be avoided
Light detection makes it easy for them to hide and smuggle.
These may be the next generation of weapons.

However, the blog GigaOM points out that the parts shown on the media are \"actually parts for 3D printers\", not parts for weapons.
\"If the police think the part on the photo is the trigger, just search for mk8 on thingiverse.
You will see that it is an automatic upgrade part of the printer.

A printed gun can also be manufactured without a serial number or unique identifier, thus triggering a ballistic test.

After the user downloads the design of the gun or part, the printer itself spews molten plastic to produce a 3D shape of any design downloaded.
According to Forbes magazine, a real 3D gun costs only $25.

Preliminary tests, however, suggest that users are likely to be disabled or suicidal rather than targeted, although guns are expected to become more complex as technology advances.
Michael Brzoska said: \"In Germany and most European countries, it is legal to have unregistered weapons, even if it is made domestically, and to be punished by law, \"a security expert and director of the Institute for Peace Research and Security at the University of Hamburg recently told the New York Times.

So far, there have been no reports of violent crimes committed using 3d printing weapons.
