Manasquan, NJ --(Ammoland.com)- Defense Distributed and http://defcad.org/ has been shut down by the state department. Specifically they have shut down the downloading of 3D Cad files related to firearms printing.

DefCAD was the download site for 3d printed gun CAD files and torrents.

From DefCAD: “This file has been removed from public access at the request of the US Department of Defense Trade Controls. Until further notice, the United States government claims control of the information.”

The Fed is late to the game as all of the files have already been downloaded 1000’s of times and are available all over the web at various Torrent distribution websites.

  1. It’s too late, once on the internet it lives forever. Many people downloaded it just in case this happened, this will make people spread it quickly between themselves. Idiots, that was the whole point by DefDist

  2. After reading this I emailed copies of the files to everyone I know, anyone wants a copy, put their email address in a post here.

  3. @ Greg: Can’t send copy without an email address. I have discovered that there are currently 1500 torrent seeders if you torrent that have all the files available. So besides thousands of sites now offering the file for download, DefDist went down the other day due to bandwidth issues, so the files have been downloaded millions of times already. All this did was demonstrate that our government is tyrannical and will do things even if they have no law yet to make them illegal for you.

  4. So far I’ve sent those who requested it copies to the AR mag and the Liberator (the functional pistol) figuring those are the most sought after pieces. As of yet DefDist hadn’t fully completed the AR since the barrel itself was still metal, so those are the two popular files. And the Liberator is what got them shut down.

  5. Sent, but in case you’re not already aware. The files only work if you a)unzip them (extract) and b) have an auto-cad type program to use them and c) own a 3d printer. Got some wierd responses last night, just saying

  6. Bill, don’t need you plans but I admire you for defying the government. Anything to throw a money wrench in their machinery and piss them off. I think we are just about all at the point that whatever the government is for, we are now against. If they don’t respect us, we don’t respect them. We are tired of lies and scams from our government.

  7. My comment did not show on my system, I apologize if this ends up being a double post. Need your email to send the files, or you can email me to get them. arcostrokeman @ gmail dot com Thanks

  8. My first post did not seem to go through so here is my email for a copy of those files. legion6@hotmail dot com

  9. I have a wide range of weapons and enjoy endorsing and practicing my 2nd amendment right. You all know the world we live in is not a fairy tale. We are awash with people whom are either, deranged, insane, dare I say low intelligence, hostile and cruel. Weapons are no toys and as such must be treated with respect. Free uninhibited printability to them is a rocky slope.
    When they are used by the aforementioned, this only adds fuel to the fire for the proponents against the 2nd. People need to think before they act, I fear this may only harm our rights.

  10. And I am sure you are all going to be nice responsible little citizens and put a hunk of metal in there so you don’t violate the Undetectable Firearms Act, right? Just like EVERYBODY will. lol.

    I am sure that there is NOT one single person who would try to skirt that law.

  11. There have been 1500 seeders for days on bit torrent. Not to mention pirate bay. But again: @val trevino, can’t send you anything without an email address.

  12. facepalm. I’m not saying it again after this, but, duh, exactly how am I supposed to send you anything when you didn’t leave an address? Oh wait, I did post mine so you could email me, but you didn’t. Anyone else who wants it must email me first or use bit torrent. Thanks arcostrokeman at gmail.com
