NSW Man Gets Suspended Sentence For Making Fantasy Role Play Guns

Comments Comments

The laws around 3D printed guns are not always clear to people when they are being used for fantasy role-play. The plastic guns have no action and can not be loaded in any way. They do not even have a metal part on them.

A Sydney man has been spared jail time after he made replica guns with a 3D printer for "fantasy role-play". 

The Murray Valley Standard reported "Sicen Sun only intended for the replica firearms - which included an imitation sub-machine gun seen in Stargate - to be used as costume props".

"I could not even begin to contemplate that a hobby would land me in such strife,"' he told a sentence hearing earlier in August.


"They were being used in fantasy role-play games," the judge said.

Sun had pleaded guilty to charges including manufacturing a pistol without a licence permit, possessing an unauthorised pistol and the NSW first of possessing a digital blueprint for the manufacture of firearms.
