Less of a game and more of a demonstration of each and every working part in 5 different handguns, Gun Disassembly is a technical app with an extraordinary amount of detail in both the included weapon models and their many animated parts.

To begin, there are two handguns to choose from, the Colt 1911 and Glock 17. Selecting one of these enables you to view a complete demonstration of the gun being completely disassembled and then re-assembled. The demonstration and the game component itself is set around a 3D model of the weapon, with the camera able to zoom and pan around various components. The demo runs through the correct steps (complete with full animation of even the smallest screws being removed) and the game mode then has you replicating these steps to achieve the best time score possible.

The controls are straightforward-- you merely need to select the correct component on the gun, and then press an on-screen button to remove it automatically. It sounds easy, but when there are excess of 50 steps to take in the correct order, it gets quite challenging; particularly if, like us, you have very little knowledge of how these things work in the first place. The camera is controlled by the traditional swipe to pan and pinch to zoom gestures.

High scores are recorded on the OpenFeint platform, and an additional 3 handguns (the Desert Eagle .44, Sig P228 and Baretta 92 FS) can be purchased for $0.99 each to further your high scores. There are also 5 OpenFeint achievements awarded for completing any of the games without using the in-game hint system.


Though it is promoted as a game, Gun Disassembly 3D is nonetheless a technical app with very limited appeal. That didn't stop it from piquing at our curiosity however, as it can be quite a singular experience to see a firearm like this being taken apart before your very eyes, let alone being able to go about it yourself.

        I have to agree.
        At first I didn't see all the fuss, then at a resort in Philippines, I tried a firing range. My eyes boggled at being able to try the M16 machine gun as well as the Benelli shotgun (if thats spelt right).
        Oh my bleepity god!
        It was such an awesome feeling!
        Leaves such an impression I couldn't sleep much that night, and went back to the firing range again the next morning before checkout!

        So, while I will not be buying such weapons, I can certainly see the appeal to owning and firing them at the gun club.

    this is pretty cool. I'm an avid gun enthusiast, but rarely do you see a gun completely disassembled like that.

    for example, when cleaning my Baretta 92 FS, it's only necessary to remove 3 simple parts (slide, guide rod, barrel). it'll be fun to see how all the guts go together.

    add more guns please!!!

      it's so pitty but only for Beretta 92FS there is no disassembling of firing pin and safety...may be will be fixed later...

    You're saying that liberals are the ones who favor a fascist government? Then why did the GOP pass laws in Arizona that allow police officers to ask for proof of citizenship from ANY person that they see? Why does the GOP want to waive Miranda rights? Why did the GOP pass the Patriot act? Why did the Bush administration illegally wiretap citizens of the United States? Why has Barack Obama done absolutely nothing to change gun laws?

    • Freedog

      If the person being questioned isn't here ILLEGALLY in the first place then what do they have to worry about? The Patriot Act? Is that the best you libs can come up with? A law passed to prevent terrorists, all this whining but I haven't heard of the law being used against any non-terrorists. Barack Obama hasn't changed any gun laws because he is scared of this happening again...

        Doesn't change the fact that he hasn't changed any gun laws, or even commented that he would change any gun laws. That was not a part of his platform for election, that is not a part of his administration. You have no argument there whatsoever.

        The problem with the citizenship law is that it gives police unlimited authority to ask anyone they want for proof that they are residents. A law like this hasn't existed since the civil war era when African Americans would have to carry around proof that they were free men. Another problem with it is that it is one step away from something conservatives fear so much-a government i.d. card. Who is the fascist- the ones who are fighting for equal rights for all, or the ones who want everyone in the state of Arizona to carry around proof that they belong here? That is called a police state, good sir. Besides, ask any economist and they will tell you that without illegal immigrants, America would collapse-there would be nobody to do the lower-status jobs. This actually fits the textbook definition of fascism, as it prevents the assimilation of other races and cultures into society.

        The Patriot Act is a jumbled mess that was passed hastily in fear after the tragedy of 9/11. It gives the government to take away the rights of the citizens of America as it sees fit. This act leaves the government with the power to transform America into an even bigger big brother state than it already is. And yes, it has been used against those who are not terrorists. It has been used to stop protesters from protesting on the national mall and it has been used to wiretap citizens illegally, as I mentioned before.

        Back your argument up next time.

      70% of Arizona's legal citizens approve of the reformed immigration law. Only one Democratic senator voted against the Patriot Act, so 99% of the Senate approved of the wiretapping. While I agree that it is a violation of our freedoms, I'm not planning on doing any type of heinous acts that warrant wiretapping. Obama is smart to not try to change guns laws or almost any social law, as he knows that they pretty much divide his Democratic base in two. Social conservatives are as much a part of the Democratic party as they are of the GOP.

      Thats an interesting comment, an empty one considering most of the police and military in the U.S. disagree. Do you really think the police can save everybody? They know and admit they can't. Will you always trust them or another stranger to save you if needed? Do you want the government to be your daddy and control every aspect of your life that they want to? You sound like one of those over-imaginitive control craving liberals that thinks that by passing 100 new laws every week everyone will eventually behave like good little Smurfs.

    Finally an app that'll appeal to my father

  • Deee

    hmmm this looks technically sound and most definitely required lots of work and attention to detail to develop but personally this experience looks lame to me, not that im an anti gun kinda person but virtually disassembling guns just for fun doesn't seem like something i would enjoy.

    yeah what next?

    Hopefully an app on the best way to dispose of a body.

    no reason it couldn't have open feint achievements so could count as a game

    PS. my fave way to dispose of bodies is chopping up and feeding to wolves followed by burying bones in lime (eats up the calcium real good!)

    Oh, and remember kids! Keep you gun barrel clean at all times!

    Happy Gaming and God Bless America!!

    Just a bit overemotionally unstable there menom, I think your argument more based on your sick imagination than anything true. This is an educational app, for responsible gun owners not gang members.

    Most European countries have extremely strict gun laws compared to the US, and for some reason our murder rates are a lot lower.

    Also people who fetishize guns and treat them as toys are creepy. Period.

    Well, Mac, I'd suggest making a comment on a message board was less sick than encouraging gun ownership

    Everyone is a responsible gun owner... until they go nuts

    A person going nuts without a gun is less of a problem than one with a gun

    If everyone has the right to bear arms you end up with a country with multiple news stories of people going nuts, followed by gun-toting killing sprees

    maybe this sounds familiar to you?

    • Mac

      I guess according to your philosophy 99% of the people who are responsible with their guns are supposed to give them up because of the small amount of psychos acting up committing crimes who would've found a way to go nuts with or without guns anyway. The media is always anti-gun, which is why most of what you see on the news is shootings, they aren't gonna talk about the over 99% of gunowners who aren't committing crimes, because there is no story to that.

      Let me guess, you want to ban kitchen knives next? We can all cut our turkey with our fingernails, right? You liberals are a paranoid bunch of control-freaks, how about focusing on your own life and fixing your emotional problems, instead of trying to dictate everyone elses.

      • menom

        wow you really are crazy, aren't you!

        I live in a country without the right to bear arms and guess what!

        We have no incidents of people going crazy and killing 10s or dozens of people in a mall / school with a kitchen knife

        it just doesn't happen that way

        a person going nuts with a knife might kill one person.

        a person going nuts with guns is pure madness - except in your world where it's an example of freedom to be mown down by a nutter

    A couple of thoughts:

    - I also think this is not the right forum to discuss political topics

    - I find the subject matter of the app repulsive. I see its technical excellence and consider a great idea the possibilities of technical puzzles, but personally i find creepy this gun fetish too.

    - I'd recommend to the writers and moderators of Touch Arcade to have a better judgement highlighting such a controversial app. As a media you have a responsibility to your readers- would you highlight an game dealing with religion, politics or sex? even if the App store approves it, i think you have a responsibility on the stories and content you comment and should show better taste.

    -I don't dispute the right to sell this kind of apps to people interested on such lurid subject, but i think that the App store should have a restricted area for apps dealing with controversial topics (sex, gore, drugs, etc...) and weapons should be included on it.

      Honestly, people need to grow up a bit here.

      We aren't pushing a political stance at all here, because well-- I'm not even American! I'm from Australia where all these weapons are strictly banned and I'm more than happy for them to stay that way. That doesn't mean I can't appreciate the technical and artistic credibility of this app, or the fact that it has relevancy to the gaming community who are very familiar with the subject matter on account of the sheer mind-boggling number of shooters available!!

      I don't mean to offend anyone, but there are far too many agendas being pushed in what is a rather superfluous app considering the social norms we are otherwise content with. Been to the movies lately?

        Oh right Australia. You mean this Australia...

        Article:
        One year after gun-owners were forced to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed, including semi-automatic .22 rifles and shotguns, a program costing the government over 500 million dollars, the results are in...

        A dramatic increase in criminal activity has been experienced. Gun control advocates respond "Just wait... we'll be safer... you'll see...".

        OBSERVABLE FACT, AFTER 12 MONTHS OF DATA:

        Australia-wide, homicides are up 3.2%
        Australia-wide, assaults are up 8.6%
        Australia-wide, armed-robberies are up 44% (yes, FORTY-FOUR PERCENT)
        In the state of Victoria, homicides-with-firearms are up 300%
        Figures over the previous 25 years show a steady decrease in homicides-with-firearms (changed dramatically in the past 12 months)
        Figures over the previous 25 years show a steady decrease in armed-robbery-with-firearms (changed dramatically in the past 12 months)
        There has been a dramatic increase in breakins-and-assaults-of- the-elderly
        At the time of the ban, the Prime Minister said "self-defense is not a reason for owning a firearm"
        From 1910 to present, homicides in Australia had averaged about 1.8-per-100,000 or lower, a safe society by any standard.
        The ban has destroyed Australia's standings in some international sport shooting competitions
        The membership of the Australian Sports Shooting Association has risen to 112,000, a 200% increase, in response to the ban and as an attempt to organize against further controls, which are expected.
        Australian politicians are on the spot and at a loss to explain how no improvement in "safety" has been observed after such monumental effort and expense was successfully expended in "ridding society of guns". Their response has been to "wait longer".

      How is this repulsive? It's simply a gun that can be taken apart and put back together. I have no interest in guns in real life, but I think this is a pretty neat idea for an app, and graphically impressive. Did you make sure to make similar comments on the hundreds of iGun apps out there that let you pretend to shoot people with your iPhone? Or how about on Grand Theft Auto where you use those guns to mow down NPC's?

      I honestly for the life of me can't see how this harmless little app is causing so many crazy comments.

    Whats with all this political garbage? geez you can't go anywhere on the internet without running into it.

        Whoa, you guys need to calm down. First, I don't own a gun (maybe I will in the future), but if you take away that right, all you are doing is limiting access to the common person: criminals will always find a way to get them, and the government will own the right to them. So what is the point? Look at Prohibition, the war on drugs; its a waste of time.
        That said, I seriously doubt anyone is moving to take away gun rights.

        And cmon, humankind progress by getting rid of guns? dont be ridiculous.
        Start with nukes first at least, then 1000 other things before you get to guns

  • Request for dev

    Personally, I would like to see an app update that allows the player to disasemble an AR15 weapon system. Since the M4 carbine and M16 are very similar, those could be included as well.

    For those that don't know, the AR15 is a semi-automatic multi-purpose assault rifle that is chambered in 2.23x5.56 NATO (the most common round used by the US military and duh, NATO). The AR15 is built on the same system as the M4 carbine which is issued to most United States military forces. The main difference with the AR15 verus the M4 is the lack of select fire. The AR15 can only fire at a semi-automatic rate of fire (although the right kits can give you the option of full auto).

    Thanks for the app!

    • menom

      Good point

      also why can't we have an app showing how to assemble and disassemble a nuclear warhead

      it's not like anyone has ever done anything wrong with that kinda information

      pssssssst - don't mention this to Hiroshima or Nagasaki.....shhhhhhhh

        How the heck does owning a firearm have anything to do with this? Please keep your drivel to yourself you have no basis for an argument when using Nuclear weapons to illustrate your disillusion with Federal laws

    • Request for dev

      Forgot to add... AR15 gun sales have out ranked sales of the Ruger 10/22... which is the most popular rifle in the USA. In other words, the AR15 is the number one rifle in the USA.

      So please add this to your game!

    I think the pretense of authenticity of the app makes its different.
    I don't mind "killing" alien demons with a laser gun in Doom, because is, obviously, a fictional situation. I find the militaristic tone of "Modern Combat" and others FPS exploitative and poor taste, but, again, is a fictional context.
    "Bomberman" would be judge differently that an realistic application showing you how to assemble/dissasemble a bomb (even passive) isn't it?
    I insist, is a question of taste, not danger, freedom of expression, defense, etc. Gun content should be in the shame category as porn, because a good sector of the audience, especially international audience, consider it offensive.

    The simple fact that almost all gun bashing people fail to acknowledge is that in almost every single instance of crime, the criminal uses a gun that was not legally obtained.

    Would an anti-gun law prevent someone that wants to go into a mall and kill 200 people from committing the crime ? Are their really people that are willing to murder, but not to break gun ownership laws ?

    The entire anti-gun movement has no basis in fact, it is an emotional response from people that have very little understanding of the facts.

    • Mac

      Amen. Finally someone who knows what they're talking about.

      Felons are banned from owning firearms but they still manage to get them illegally and commit more crimes. In many cases felons interviewed in jail say that if they didn't manage to get a gun they would have just done the crime with a knife or other instrument.

      Liberals want to punish everyone for something that can't be prevented even with gun control. The truth is that liberals don't care so much about crime as they do about their obsession with controlling people. Its evident as we see them trying to pass excessive new laws every day to dictate people's lives.

      Another example of how gun control actually kills..

      One of the first forms of major gun control came in Nazi Germany in the mid 1930's, preventing all Jews from possessing a firearm. 2 years later all Jews were forced to register themselves. And well you know what happened after that... I doubt 6 million Jews would have been forced to be taken away to die had they been armed.

    I appreciate the accuracy of this application - very helpful for going a step beyond a regular field-strip of these handguns. Perhaps including a field-strip mode to show how far to disassemble during a routine cleaning would be a good idea for a future update.

    Other specific handguns I would like to see would be:
    Browning High Power
    Taurus 92/99 (very similar to the Beretta but some internal differences)
    FN Five-SeveN
    HK P9s
    HK Mk.23
    Ruger Mk.II or Mk.III

    Older guns like a Mauser C-96 or a Luger would be kinda fun just to see how things like CNC machining and such has changed firearms through a number of decades.

    I'm not really as interested in the rifle and sub-machine gun updates... I don't see as much practical use in those as the majority of them will most likely be Class III weapons due to popularity.

    I'm not really understanding why people are arguing so much about this application. It's reference material with a bit of a game aspect thrown in (making it into a challenge really helps for memorizing). It is in no way a statement about gun rights; the developer obviously wouldn't have made the app without some personal interest in firearms.

    While I was a bit surprised to see this on the front page of this site, I wouldn't have found the app otherwise so I'm glad it was. Good job on the application, and I'm glad there's a few others here sticking to constructive criticism and feedback.

      I also want to see x-Ray while in operate mode so I can see how it works inside the pistol while in action

    I appreciate the accuracy of this application - very helpful for going a step beyond a regular field-strip of these handguns. Perhaps including a field-strip mode to show how far to disassemble during a routine cleaning would be a good idea for a future update.

    Other specific handguns I would like to see would be:
    Browning High Power
    Taurus 92/99 (very similar to the Beretta but some internal differences)
    FN Five-SeveN
    HK P9s
    HK Mk.23
    Ruger Mk.II or Mk.III

    Alcohol related accidents kill a lot of innocent folk in the USA. So you elitists who wanna defend me from gun toting wackos by banning guns. Protect me from irresponsible drunkards by banning alcohol.

    You wont because you enjoy your freedom to drink responsibly.

    Shoot responsibly my friends.

    Can we have another Crack at that Civil war? I'd like the South to bugger off for a few hundred years. This game is insanely white trash.

    • Freedog

      Dude if you think that southern white trash are the only people who own firearms then you are a total dummy, and its not a game its an app.

      • mike

        Oh I see, its a Productivity app, is it?

        LOL...ok Cletus

    So... wait. Let me get this straight. An application where you pretend to us a gun to kill people is great fun! Puppies and rainbows!

    But an application where you pretend to take a gun apart is sick and horrible! Won't someone think of the children?

    I don't get it. A gun is just a tool, that like most tools is mostly beneficial (for sport, for food, for self-defense) but can be dangerous if misused. Without someone on the other end to pull the trigger, it's nothing but a complicated paperweight. Maybe spend more time worrying about the people who actually commit the crimes than worrying about the various inanimate objects used in the crimes? (I hear many criminals use automobiles in the course of their crimes. Maybe ban those next...)

    I'd worry a heck of a lot more about possible negative effects of violent shooting games than about possible negative effects off a gun disassembly application. (And, for the record, I don't worry about possible negative effects of violent shooting games.)

    • Freedog

      Well said

    • menom

      the issue is that such an app normalises gun ownership - something that most people in the world don't find normal

    Funny that Apple won't let nodding politicians on the store but will allow gun worship apps.

    Death trumps satire, who'd have thought it.

    The maker isn't from the US btw, vklimoc is at least hosting in Ukraine. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to get back to work on my Cow Diassembly app.

      I'm vegetarian and I don't want to see an app in the AppStore where you can take apart animals. ;)

        Bugger. Guess I'll have to redraw the parts then. Robot cows?

    What a bunch of pussies. I hope you gun haters never need to protect your family in your home, while you rely and wait for the police to show up. Your wife and kids can be screwed 3 ways to tuesday before they arrive. Good luck with that.

    Touch Arcade:
    Thank you for posting this.

    There is nothing political or offensive about it, and it the app appears to be of very high quality.

    To the Developers:
    The represents a fine body of work, and I'm sorry you had to see all the hate messages above. I hope you are not discouraged by them.

    • Larkins

      I disagree:

      Touch Arcade made a mistake highlighting a gun-porn app (not even a game) and stirring political innuendo with the headline "Second amendment, meet the app store". Totally inappropriate.

      To the developers: Even the negative comments acknowledge the technical excellence of the app. I hope they find better subjects for their remarkable talents.

      To the gun nuts, you live in a sad, creepy and scary place

      • Cookieman

        What would your definition of 'gun nut' be? It, from my experience, seems to be a very fluid term ranging from anyone who would even think of guns, to someone who is obsessed with guns every waking minute of their lives. Where would your definition fit in on this continuum? I am curious because I would like to seek out some of these people and see if they actually live in a 'sad, creepy and scary place'.

        Hilarious.

    This would be an awesome app if it took apart car engines/parts, I would pay for that.. but guns ?? pfft rubbish. Guns are for people with no balls.

    Excellent application. Well done. Hope for more guns, like Walter PPK, Mauser, maybe some high duty war weapons like the M1A ?

    Very cool and addictive, no its not a game but it actually is more fun than a game would be. I love to take stuff apart and put it back together and if ou do too this is the app for you,i love it and hope alot more guns are added

  • Kaedis

    This app is an excellent example of how technical instructions can be taught on an IPod, IPad, Droid or any other touch tablet. Every publisher who is putting out technical manuals instructing on anything from gunsmithing to car maintenance should be paying attention. This is the future of technical instructions.   

  • Kaedis

    Why is it that those who do not own guns feel it is their right to dictate that no others should either? When is the last time a gun owner shouted you down for NOT owning a gun? Never,it is your right to choose. Respect my choice.

    And before you trot out the lie that criminals steal guns from law abiding owners, statistically criminals get their guns through the black market and those guns are bought through straw purchasers. So disarming the populace will not stop gun crime, it will only ensure that criminals are the only ones that have the weapons.

    Ask your self, why are home invasions (where the owner is home) twice as common in nations with strict gun laws than in nations where the populace is armed? Could it be criminals like unarmed victims?

    Why is it that in Mexico, where gun laws are extremely strict, gun toting cartels have all but taken over the nation? And no, you cannot buy bazookas, .50 cal machine guns and hand grenades on the market in the States. If gun trafficking was the culprit, wouldn't the U.S. have worse problems?

    Why is gun crime so low in Israel when, while I was there, I saw more people openly carrying guns than the whole time I have lived in the U.S.A. ? Maybe because they learned the folly of expecting someone else to be responsible for their safety.

    If you choose not to protect yourself, that is fine. Me, I want to live to see the police arrive instead of wait passively for the coroner to pick me up.
