FP-45 LIBERATOR MODEL 2
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.
As I was hand forming the the parts for the Model 2 guide pin, I got a profound feeling of historic deja-vu as it occured to me I was repeating their exact activities of some 68 years before. Having shot the Liberator too often to ever want to shoot one again, it's obvious to me that the fragile guide pin on the top of the cocking piece of the Model 2 will not hold up long under recoil.
This is why on
the familiar Model 3, the cocking piece was redesigned with a heavy supporting
rib on the top to strengthen the mounting point for the guide pin. These
are special order items. We may or may not have these items in
stock. If not, expect up to a month wait time for us to make one up in
our next assembly cycle. Since these early models were never issued, it
would not be appropriate for them to be packed in a box.
