The 18-year-old the police arrested is “charged with offenses including the unlicensed manufacture of firearms and ammunition, and possession of a prohibited weapon.”

3D Natives identified the printed firearm as a “4kg gun,” which they say is “able to fire 15 lethal 9mm rounds and is considered to be fully-functional.”
