The Original Government Sponsored “Ghost Gun”: FP-45 Liberator Pistol!
A true relic of World War II, the FP-45 is a really neat $2.10 pistol (Maybe $32 today?). It was designed to be dropped behind enemy lines. Wait wait wait…
I know what your thinking, “One shot of 45 acp!” What more could you ask for to put down a NAZI right?
needed a gun to drop a NAZI with, and then “Liberate” his gun. Sounds logical… right? There were over 1 million of them made in a little over 10 weeks of 24/7 secretive factory work by GE. One foreman that worked on the project was supposedly even shot and killed with one. They were supposedly made for the army… But there is a lot of smoke and mirrors around the history and use of FP-45 pistols. It’s kinda hard to track down who really had them and for what purpose (Well they were meant for killing people, but who exactly?).
They say “Well Bob millions of years ago…all those were destroyed—cut up for scrap metal” or, more commonly, “unopened boxes were dumped, by the thousands, into the ocean.” or some baloney like that. But we do know that the OSS (precursor to the CIA) ended up with 450,000 of them.
“Although Liberator production went well, the distribution process was a disaster. Very few of these ever made it into Europe and certainly were never air-dropped in quantity or at all. Gen. MacArthur committed to 50,000 pistols, most of which were shipped to Australia in 1943 for redistribution to occupied islands. This left approximately 450,000 handguns remaining, which the Army no longer wanted, and they ended up in the custody of the newly formed OSS (Office of Strategic Services), which nicknamed this pistol the Liberator or “Woolworth” gun.” – S.P. Fjestad, Author & Publisher, Blue Book of Gun Values
So the FP-45 is a great piece of history and Beautiful relic of World War II (If you can find one, that is). They were made cheap… They were made with no serial
number. There is no record of where they went. They are Ghosts.
The original “Ghost Guns”! And the government sponsored and paid for them and then put them on the street. This is a great lesson. The FP-45 Liberator Pistol is really what every Liberty loving, and God fearing person on the planet, needs. So when their neighbor or loved one needs help fighting off a bad guy, they could do so with extreme prejudice, even when the law says otherwise.
All you need is a few cheap things from the hardware store and you can be ready to liberate if
the need to defend Liberty arises.
Also don’t mistake the “FP-45 Liberator” for the the really neat modern version of it, the 3D Printed Liberator Pistol from Cody Wilson (Ghost Gunner Machine) at Defense Distributed that was named after (you guessed it) the FP-45 Liberator.
