General Motors Insurgency Pistol, 1942


‘The FP-45 Liberator was designed for the United States Army in 1942 by General Motors. It was originally intended as an insurgency weapon to be mass dropped behind enemy lines to resistance fighters in occupied territory.  A million were assembled. It was believed that if vast quantities of these weapons could be delivered into Axis occupied territory, it would have a devastating effect on the morale of occupying troops.

‘Only a handful were ever distributed. There is no documented instance of the weapon being used for their intended purpose.’

- Wikipedia

Wow I'm glad the rifles they produced were a little less complicated to use. I have an m1 carbine Made by gm in 44, if it was that hard to use I would have sold it by now.
