Australian Police Seize 3D Printed Gun Parts

Nearly two years after Aussie policemen first began warning people regarding the risks of 3D-printed firearms, firearm components that were plastic have been confiscated by Queensland policemen in a raid.

Queensland Police carried out a search warrant on a property in Mudgeeraba, confiscating cannabis and cannabis strategies, a knuckle duster, a shotgun and “plastic weapon components” made with a 3D printer.

A 28-year old man charged with drug and firearm offences and was detained through the investigation. He can appear before a court Authorities say.

Queensland Police Detective Inspector Scott Knowles took the chance to give a warning to citizens about these 3D printed weapon components, saying which they risk “serious harm” to themselves by using them, before including they’d be up on firearm offences if captured.
