Canadian Gunsmith Prints 3-D .22 Rifle

August 8, 2013 by  

Following in the footsteps of American 3-D printing gunsmith Cody Wilson, a Canadian man has created what he believes to be the world’s first 3-D printed rifle.

A man known only as “Mathew” recently successfully fired 14 rounds from a .22 rifle created from a 3-D printer, a concept firearm he has dubbed Grizzly 2.0. The gun maker said that this is his second prototype, built after the barrel on his first printed rifle cracked after firing just one round.

The Grizzly 2.0 is a single-shot, barrel-loaded rifle.

Wilson’s Defense Distributed, which creates designs for 3-D “wiki weapons,” produced a single-shot pistol created with a 3-D printer in May of 2013. The Federal government later forced Wilson to remove the firearm designs from his website.
