CIA Deer Gun


Recommended Posts

In the late 1950s the CIA thought it would be nice to drop cheap guns into Commieland.  The WWII Liberators had been scrapped so they came up with a die cast aluminum gun in 9mm.  Very few were ever actually produced.

I knew a collector in Australia years ago, Stephen... something, who had a "demilled" Deer Gun - the barrel was welded up and the striker had been removed or broken off or somesuch.

Ian McCollum did an episode on Forgotten Weapons on the Deer Gun a few years ago.

 

I've had two Guide Lamp Liberators, and still have one of them AND the original instruction sheet - far more scarce than the guns. I've shot it five times with a primer and round ball, just enough to push it out the barrel and bounce off the backboard. :D

Looks like an impact wrench.
