“Defense Distributed is awaiting its manufacturing Federal Firearms License (FFL) and special occupational taxpayer stamp (SOT) before it begins testing Wiki Weapon concepts. These designs are likely unwieldy and unsafe, but as our expertise and capabilities have improved, we now expect to proof designs more prolifically and scientifically (if more slowly!) than we had suggested
