    Ruger Charger by Buck O'Fama
    NAME: Ruger Charger
    DESIGNER: Buck O'Fama
    FIRST KNOWN SUCCESSFUL TEST: July 2014
    EQUIPMENT USED: Unknown FDM-type 3D printer
    TYPE: pistol
    ACTION: semi-automatic
    CALIBER: .22 Long Rifle
    FULLY PRINTABLE?: No. The weapon's receiver
    was printed in 2 sections, which were
    reportedly "crazy glued" together. Other parts
    (e.g. bolt, barrel, stock) were purchased
    commercially.
    NOTES: A video uploaded to LiveLeak on
    Independence Day, 2014 (now censored) shows
    the weapon firing at least 30 rounds without
    failure. It appears to be a highly reliable
    design. In January 2016, O'Fama released a
    tutorial in which he demonstrates how to
    build an updated version of the pistol.

    Shuty by Derwood
    NAME: Shuty
    DESIGNER: Derwood
    FIRST KNOWN SUCCESSFUL TEST: May 2015
    EQUIPMENT USED: Unknown FDM-type 3D printer
    TYPE: pistol
    ACTION: semi-automatic
    CALIBER: 9mm Parabellum
    FULLY PRINTABLE?: No. Uses a steel Glock
    barrel, a metal insert in the bolt, and a
    metal firing pin.
    NOTES: Appears to be patterned after the
    AR-15. An early version had a blocky-
    looking upper receiver. A redesign (dubbed
    the MP1)
    has a much more rounded
    appearance.

    ZigZag by Yoshitomo Imura NAME: Zig Zag revolver
    DESIGNER: Yoshitomo Imura
    FIRST KNOWN SUCCESSFUL TEST: May 2014
    EQUIPMENT USED: Unknown FDM-type 3D printer
    TYPE: pistol
    ACTION: revolver, single-action
    CALIBER: .38 Special
    FULLY PRINTABLE?: Yes. Uses rubber bands
    to propel striker. Minimal non-printed
    parts.
    NOTES: Although Imura used blank cartridges
    to comply with Japanese law, he was
    nonetheless arrested and given a two-year
    prison sentence. Cody Wilson said of
    Imura, "Yoshitomo Imura is a person of
    strong character and virtue under
    unfavorable circumstances. He expressed
    with his work only virtue, but this virtue
    is ostracized by his society. He performed
    his work in the open, without suspicion,
    fear or dishonor."

    Imura by Warfairy
    Imura by Warfairy
    NAME: Imura revolver
    DESIGNER: Warfairy
    FIRST KNOWN SUCCESSFUL TEST: Unknown
    EQUIPMENT USED: Unknown FDM-type 3D printer
    (Possibly a Rostock Delta or similar).
    TYPE: pistol
    ACTION: revolver, double-action
    CALIBER: .22 Long Rifle
    FULLY PRINTABLE?: Yes, but requires metal
    chamber inserts if shooting full-power
    .22 LR rounds. CB and Super Colibri rounds
    probably do not require such inserts.
    NOTES: Warfairy christened the Imura revolver
    in honor of jailed gunsith Yoshitomo Imura;
    designer of the ZigZag revolver. Its
    mechanism appears to bear similarity.

    EQUIPMENT USED: Unknown FDM-type 3D printer
    TYPE: pistol

    FULLY PRINTABLE?: Yes, but requires metal
    chamber inserts if cylinder is printed in

    NOTES: The Washbear is possibly the first
    printed double-action only (DAO) revolver
    to be successfully test fired.

    Dart Pistol by Peter Alaric DeSimone
    Dart Pistol by Peter Alaric DeSimone
    NAME: Dart Pistol
    DESIGNER: Peter Alaric DeSimone
    FIRST KNOWN SUCCESSFUL TEST: July 2015
    EQUIPMENT USED: LulzBot Taz 4 3D printer
    TYPE: pistol
    ACTION: single-shot, pneumatic piston
    CALIBER: .40 cal blowgun dart
    FULLY PRINTABLE?: Yes, but uses an aluminum
    blowgun barrel insert for tight gas seal.
    NOTES: DeSimone released his dart gun in
    protest against proposed regulations that
    would criminalize sharing printable weapon
    information online. He admits to touting
    its invisibility to metal detectors (and
    theoretical ability to fire poison darts)
    deliberately to sensationalize the story.
    DeSimone warns that actually preparing
    poison darts would be extremely dangerous,
    and highly illegal in the U.S. He stresses
    that his dart pistol was designed solely
    for target practice.
