    FP-45 LIBERATOR MODEL 1 (EARLIER MODEL)

    This is currently on backorder, you need to be on our list if you want one.  Email us if you want to reserve one.

    ​For the Liberator collector who has just about everything we offer some special order pistols conforming to the earliest guns to come out of Guide Lamp.  These are made by hand in the shop from our Model 3 parts that we modify to the earlier patterns.  It is time consuming to say the least.  it was an informative exercise to build these up.  

    True to original reports, the Model 1 firing pin did sometimes miss the hole.  You can actually see the dent in the coverslide of our sample gun.  It seems so obvious that one wonders how three really smart people like Hyde, Everitt and Hamisch didn't plan for some type of guide pin to keep the cocking piece properly oriented right at the start.   

    Since these early models were never issued, it would not be appropriate for them to be packed in a box.
