The FP-45 Liberator was a single-shot .45 caliber pistol manufactured by the United States during World War II. Intended to be airdropped to resistance fighters in Axis-occupied territories, the gun would supposedly allow its user to incapacitate an enemy soldier and retrieve a better weapon from them. However, its unrifled barrel resulted in severe inaccuracy, meaning it could only be used effectively at extremely close range, while its single-shot capacity left the user vulnerable if their shot did not kill their target.
Owing to its crude simplicity, 1,000,000 guns were manufactured within eleven weeks, but very few actually reached resistance organisations due to its impracticality in combat paired with the logistical effort required to distribute them. None were ever issued to regular Allied forces, and the majority were destroyed post-war.
