Epoxy AR-15 Mold Ghost Gun Kit – Clay Eats Some Crow!

I, for one, will never understand the fascination with 80-percent firearms. I don’t need an unregistered lower receiver or care if it has a serial number in a database. As my old mentor from the U.S. Marine Corps once told me, “If it’s time to start burying guns, it’s already time to start digging them up.”

The author’s lower functioned well and held up to 30 rounds of military surplus ammo. This summer, the author plans to further test it to see how long it will hold up.

But I do support a free market economy, so if that is your bag, good for you. I can understand that there are tinkerers and mechanical wizards that like building firearms from the ground up. This week, I was tasked with building a polymer lower from a mold. In the title we called it “epoxy” because it is a two part solution with a hardening compound. On the website they call it resin, so I’m sure it is similar to epoxy, like a Bakelite kind of material.

Legally, this kit is not unlike the 80% kits. It is legal under federal law to manufacture a firearm for your own use, and it does not ever require a serial number or registration (state laws vary). But unlike the 80% kits, this comes out of the mold as a finished receiver. There is no milling machine or sideways grinding required, and you don’t even have to drill the holes. As you can see from the video, all this receiver needs when it comes from the mold is a little touchup with a dremel. The kits come in 5, 10 and 15 pour versions, starting at $339. I had frustrations with bending the metal insert components, and I noticed on the website that they now are pre-bending them, because I was not alone. If I continue to test this over the summer I will mold a different one with the metal inserts molded in as designed.

Pour Me Another Barkeep

The AR15Mold kit proved challenging to build and the included steps were not easy to follow.

I started this process extremely skeptical. Let the record show that I have nothing against polymer firearms, resin firearms or any other kind of firearms that work and are a good value, but starting with the sketchy instructions, I didn’t have a great feeling about this one. I have yet to see an AR lower made of anything besides aluminum or carbon fiber that lasts.

Ideas are just ideas. One of the first attempts at an off-the-books lower receiver that I witnessed was a 3D-printed model. It proceeded to crack at the buffer tube after roughly 30 rounds — as did the nine prototypes that followed.

These are some of the metal parts that you saw me throw across the garage. Now they are selling them pre-bent, which will make things a lot easier. If I decide to long term test these I’ll make another with the inserts molded in.


There have also been a flood of AR lowers into the market as the firearm market exploded over the last 8 years. I have seen AR lowers, some as cheap as $40, made by real companies in aluminum that were trash due to misaligned holes and/or questionable tolerances. An AR lower isn’t exactly rocket science, but many companies get it wrong. I like my Glock and SIG Sauer polymer pistols, but they don’t make those in a red Solo cup, like I made this one. This product is just another idea, and on my first pass it did work, but we’ll see in time if the finished product is at all resilient and reliable.

On the plus side, an AR-15 lower doesn’t take a lot of stress. Aside from the aforementioned 3D-printed models, I haven’t seen very many damaged beyond use. The exceptions to that rule involved shrapnel and or overpressure that also put the shooter of that rifle out of commission. The Marine Corps and U.S. Army issue units that have taken severe punishment over the years, and in my years of service, I’ve never seen one worn out. Can a lower made of resin, concocted in a red Solo cup stand up to whatever mild abuse it will be expected to endure? I don’t know.

Article Continues Below

Impressions Are Molded

The AR mold kit we received is a novel concept. Put the two halves together, stick removable pins in where you need holes, fill full of liquid polymer, and have a cold one while you wait on the paint to dry. It offers the option to make any color you want, and as long as you have lower parts kits and polymer resupply, an endless resource for lowers.

The author had to shave off some polymer from a few places to make all the components fit.

First, let’s talk about the bad. The directions are at best Mickey Mouse. We ended up winging it based on a variety of YouTube user experiences. Given the less-than-explanative directions, I was amazed that our lower didn’t shatter the first time we looked at it funny. Included in our kit was a steel reinforcing segment to install at the buffer tube threads. I assume this is to correct the same weakness as was showcased in the 3D print models. For reasons unknown, this is a part you must bend to fit on your own. After I wasted five of our 15 parts and spent well over an hour cursing the day the inventor was born, I tossed them across the garage and proceeded without them. The original bolt together system failed us, so I supplemented with C-clamps and wood screws. A little survivalist McGuiver helped carry the day. The final product required some fitting with both a Dremel tool and a pocket knife. This was mostly correctly sizing or completing the pin holes.

A Resin Lower is Born

Amazingly, the final product assembled with relative ease and functioned. All the normal AR parts worked, and our parts kit from Mid-South Shooters Supply went together smoothly. I test fired 30 rounds of military surplus and noticed zero cracks or weaknesses.

The kit includes the necessary tools, however, the author found that some of the components didn’t work well.

In lieu of the included bolts and screws, the author substituted wood screws and C clamps to hold the mold together.

Lasting Impressions

So, what is the final tally? If you are interested in building your own lowers, this is a win. Despite my skepticism, it did its job. If you are looking for an “Ghost Gun” AR solution, this requires fewer tools and knowledge than other options.

The downside is the time and the cost. I have assembled a few lowers in my day, and they usually take about 30 minutes. On my first mold lower, I spent about six hours just in completing the lower. The kit we received will do 5 lowers, provided you don’t screw up your chemical mixture, at a cost of $339. I’m sure subsequent attempts will not take me as long, because just like installing a new sink, the first time is always a learning experience, but you should be aware going in that this isn’t a quick thing, and you might screw up your first one.

Overall I personally am still not terribly impressed and I don’t see the value. The same week that I was testing this kit I bought a fully assembled lower with buttstock included on close out from Palmetto State Armory for $150. And that is with genuine Magpul furniture included. And besides cost and time, as to durability, only time will tell with these molded lowers. I will keep using one until it breaks or I believe it won’t be smart to let it rattle further, but that is going to take a few weeks, and it hasn’t started rattling yet.

This is a copy of the directions that are included with the kit. Before attempting at home, please consult the videos and information.

    I got my AR15 for half price, why should i pay more..?

  • Chuck Guse July 28, 2017, 4:31 pm

    Why has the shooting world gone mad over the AR-15 and its many, many clones? I have been a shooter, gun enthusiast, and part time hunter for more than 50 years, and I just don’t get it.
    1) The 5.56 /.223 cartridge is anemic and fairly limited in its true usefulness. Not much good other than for varmints including crows out to maybe 150 meters, if properly hand loaded, and fired from a well cut chamber of a nice bolt action with a 22” barrel.
    2) The AR-15’s father, the M-16 came about during the Viet Nam war because draftees who were less than enthusiastic about their fate, and regardless of what the PC practitioners say, were afraid of the .308 and .30-06, because they “kicked”.
    3) What about home defense you ask? Why indeed, even a Mossberg P.O.S 12ga. behind the front door is a much better choice for that task. If you are going to use a long gun to defend your home and family why choose firing one dart versus a bucket of baseballs? Just sayin.
    4) They are just BUTT UGLY. Plastic and aluminum with the artful silhouette of a WWII era prosthetic leg.
    5) But, but, you say, the platform has evolved to shooting useful cartridges like… .308 Win, .300 Blackout, .458 SOCOM et al. Yes, much more useful calibers in a still BUTT UGLY gun.
    6) Civilianization of a military (style) rifle … When was the last time you saw a “sporterized” AR?
    They don’t exist. Instead of cutting off the extraneous bits and protrusions like used to be done with Mausers and others, and then adding a nice walnut or maple stock and good scope … now we add four-sided Picatinny rails and fasten on everything from cappuccino makers to pole saws.
    7) Don’t get me wrong here. I am an NRA Life Member and I support all American citizens’ second amendment rights and the right to choose and use any gun(s) they can legally possess. I just personally hate these ugly inaccurate monstrosities that look like something out of the prop room of a Mad Max film. I still just do not get it!!!!

    • John July 29, 2017, 5:11 pm

      At chuck the ar 15 hater. Hey chuck opinions are like a**holes everyones got one. The ar platform is one of the most versatile platforms available the possibilities are endless and a well built ar can be extremely accurate even out to 1000 yds. And if they are so useless against anything other than a squirrel or whatever small game you referred to out past 150 yds than why is the military and special forces still using them in combat to this day. You are a hater and you should keep your biased opinion to yourself. Just because you feel like talking doesnt mean you should. Next time keep your usless opinions to yourself

      • SGT-N July 30, 2017, 5:04 pm

        As a NRA Benefactor Patriot Life member, I believe that we gun owners must stick together whether you love a Winchester Model 94 in 30-30 Winchester, a rifle that you or a relative sporterized from a military bolt-action, a modern bolt-action, irregardless of the price, an expensive MSR with all the latest “tacticool” accessories, a bare bones, inexpensive MSR, a specialized rifle for ultra long distance hunting/targets, etc. In other words, love what you have and respect what another one chose. Infighting just gives ammunition to the “progressive” gun-haters that we are a bunch of kooks, no insult intended to the above authors, who do not warrant the constitutional right to keep and bear arms.

    • William Fairfax August 17, 2017, 11:17 am

      Chuck it seems to me that I qualified with an M16 at 400 meters in the 80’s and as combat veteran I can attest to it’s effectiveness at beyond 300 meters with a single anemic 556 NATO round . I personally enjoy cowboy action shooting with the weapons of the old west and the history that surrounds the era. I also think that many of these weapons are beautifully made ,but they where also the leading edge of technology at the time . The metals used and manufacturing methods where state of the art as are the current weapons being manufactured . Kentucky rifles where often beautifully made but that hardly makes them the equal of a modern AR platform rifle . The surplus rifles people “sportsterized” where from WWI and WWII they simply can’t compete as a weapons system to an AR anymore than a Kentucky rifle would be a match for one of them. You need to try and see them as machines and see the beauty in the engineering and the real world effectiveness modern firearms .

  • Bobby West July 25, 2017, 11:47 am

    While reading the article I was thinking, “How the heck does the mold know how many times it is used then just disintegrate”? The mold can make an unlimited number of pours, just the kit is sold with enough components to make 5, 10 or 15 units. The author did not make this clear. Additional resin and supports can be purchased to make more lowers from the mold. So the more casts made the lower the cost of each unit. It is possible to get the cost per unit down to about $36 each.
    The primary reason to get this kit and make the lowers is because we can. All the liberal heads exploding is just a bonus. The durability issue is really kind of moot. If it does break, strip the components from the lower and make another one. I do not plan on making one of these right now, but will purchase the kit before the ATF realizes there is a loop hole in their regulation and shuts this down. As long as I have the mold the other components are well under their radar.
    Y’all have fun.

    • William Fairfax August 17, 2017, 11:30 am

      It’s stupid expensive $339 gets you enough for 5 . Then you can buy more resin for $129 for 5 more you’ll have the molds from the first purchase which it says you can can keep using but they sell replacement parts for the molds , and I can’t see how they’d last indefinitely . Plus if you read the reviews they seem to have a 30 to 50% failure rate so your probably only going to get 2 or 3 for each kit at least till you get a system figured out. So at $67.80 at best for a stripped lower to over $100 at what sounds more average your far better off with a lower that’s purchased complete .

  • Archangel July 24, 2017, 9:23 pm

    So, tosses out the metal support, then wants to test the durability?
    That is a mistake and one he should blame on himself, not the lower if it fails!

  • Mark Tercsak July 24, 2017, 3:01 pm

    Quite frankly , Im sick and tired of the Ar.
    I have heard reports from guys from Vietnam to Iraq and Afghanistan there are a lot of not so glowing reports of the Ar, the
    5.56×45, the development of the 6.8 specopps, 6.5 creedmore, .300 blackout, 45 bushmaster and a 50 caliber round, of over reliance upon glass optics and those optics letting the troops down. and there have been Ar Failures.
    I have shot the M16-A1 with iron Sights, without question very accurate rifle in fact came in third in a competition lost to two
    Vietnam Veterans back in 1980. having said that the weapon had a high jam rate, breaking it down you need tools, bullet or punch would do, to breakdown the M1 Garand or M14 all you need is a set of hands with fingers to go.
    In my opinion Eugene Stoner designed better weapons that the Ar-15/M16/M16-A1/M16-A2/M4.
    Such as the M63 Stoner, The Original Ar-10, not the Ar-15 chambered in 7.62×51 Nato, The Original Ar-10 had a stamped steel receiver group, the finger lever was located atop the receiver inside the carrying handle. and of coarse the Irish Republican Army’s favorite The AR-18 had a Folding Stock, Pressed steel receiver, side mounted Charging handle.
    how about anything other than the AR or AK or plastic guns.

    • roger August 18, 2017, 11:21 am

  • Mike Watkins July 24, 2017, 2:42 pm

    Unlike during the recently ended and unlamented (by Free Men) reign of “The Messiah,” AR lowers and in fact all AR components are now so widely available the prices are plumenting. I’m such an AR freak I was buying parts and building AR’s even during the worst years when a lower cost up to $300. (No, I never paid that much).

    So I’ve now got around 20 AR’s I can never sell for what I have in them. Never mind, they are all my children and all are loved.

    But my point here is, with the many reasons to own and build AR’s (they’re just cool and fun, for two) one of my own personal reasons is to make liberals’ heads explode. The fact that we can have AR’s with NO SERIAL NUMBERS just ups the anger/anxiety/fear of the hoplophobes so much, the result is a corresponding increase in the satisfaction WE experience.

    As for whether the government “knows,” good grief, are there still people in this country who believe there’s not a record of how many squares of toilet paper you use to wipe your butt?

    Just own and shoot and enjoy your AR’s and quit fretting about whether the govt “knows.” And find friendly and reasonable non-gun owners and take them out for some recreational shooting every chance you get.

    Do buyers of these “ghost guns” realize their purchase records, credit card numbers and mailing addresses are all on file with the company? Which can be raided by the ATF at any time? It’s already happened, just google “ares armor atf”.

    • D Tros July 24, 2017, 12:54 pm

      The ATF doesn’t have to raid anything. They (The Fed govt) have databases of all purchases already and if you think that is just a conspiracy theory, then the govt loves you! They have had the capability for years and have been doing it for years. And while some will argue that if they are tracking everything, then they really can’t track anything, but they are underestimating the power of the computers and software that they have available to selectively track whatever they want and they are and have been doing it for years.

    This is perfect example of ” if you need better instructions, you are in over your head!” Many of this type of project will give vague instruction not because they can’t make awesome video, or a manual. But because they want the person with not enough know how, equipment, or sense to give up. I have been a master plumber more then 20 years and the intel they give to install most faucets is terrible for average Joe who could most likely do it with good info. Next time you hear someone bitch that the instructions are lame….question the finger pointer and not the product to see if I’m right. Have fun, G.

  • Brian July 24, 2017, 10:11 am

    I have to question your comment about the “not needing a serial number” or registration. I was looking at the BATFE website regarding 80% lowers etc, for clarification for myself and a friend. According to their own website, including illustrations, a lower that is a solid shaped block is not a firearm. One that has any portion of the fire control group cavity opened up is a firearm, and requires a “Form 1” for manufacturing, and you have to put identifying markings and a serial number, registering the firearm. I’m assuming the “pour from a mold” lower would fall into the same category. I’m not for or against a “ghost gun”, but want to make sure I’m correct when I say something with regards to serial numbers and registration. Yes, “everyone can build a firearm”…, but my impression is with a Form 1… and it requires registration and a serial number. Can you please show me the BATFE rule that says otherwise. I wouldn’t want a friend or anyone for that matter to go to jail because of reading an article that may not be 100% accurate. I hope I’m wrong on what I interpreted in my reading on the BATFE site, and you can show me the correct location where it says otherwise with regard to registration and serial numbers. Thanks, Brian

    • Glenn July 24, 2017, 11:46 am

      You’re misinformed.
      A Form 1 is required when you are making an NFA item (for example and SBR,SBS, or silencer), not when you are making a non-NFA firearm.
      At the Federal level you meed to look at the GCA, or Gun Control Act of 1968, which specifies what markings are required on firearms. When you read the Act you’ll discover that they state the requirements for markings on firearms only applies to firearms made by licensed manufacturers or importers, and in fact they state that it is legal for persons to make a firearm for their own use as long as it is not with the intent of selling said firearm. No marking of the firearm or registration is required at the federal level (state and local laws may vary).

      TL;DR-
      Firearms made for sale must be marked and can only be be legally made by licensed manufacturers.
      Individuals can legally make their own firearms and are not required to mark them in any way as long as the firearm is not of a type regulated by the NFA.

      • Mark N. July 29, 2017, 1:37 am

        Close. I believe a firearm has to be marked when sold to a third person, but not otherwise. Except is some states, such as California, which is attempting to wipe out the Ghost Gun Plague. (I am pretty sure that our senator DeLeon first use the Ghost Gun moniker.) A law that became effective this year requires anyone building an 80% firearm to apply to the Ca DOJ for a unique serial number prior to starting the build, and to apply that number to the receiver. This application entails a background check. To make matters truly silly, the proposed regulations (which are on their third iteration since January and still subject to challenge) require that the builder have engraved on the receiver his first and last name, city, and state, model of the firearm if designated, and its gauge or caliber. just as if he were a manufacturer under the federal rules. The point is not to reduce crime, it is to make it so bureaucratically difficult to complete a receiver that no one will bother, and that if they do, the firearm will be registered with the DOJ just as any newly purchased firearm. (California has universal background checks.)

  • John July 24, 2017, 9:57 am

    Why? With good quality lowers at $50, or less, why would someone pay $339 to make one?
    If the serial number is that important, unregistered guns are way easier to buy than fooling around with this kit.

    • Kalashnikov Dude July 24, 2017, 12:37 pm

      The kit is based on the ability to make five receivers. This guy should have read and re read the instructions so as to be very clear on the procedure before ever attempting start. The way he talks, the man has almost no mechanical or even practical skills. In that case, he ought to just buy guns off the shelf. Nothing wrong with that. I did it all my life until I started making my own. The way some folks in the “media” division of the firearms industry shill for the manufacturing division is discouraging. The meteoric rise in the home manufacturing sector in recent years is changing the comfortable control the maufacturers and even anti gun politicians have enjoyed for so many years. Its got em nervous. I have to tell you, its by far and away the best thing to happen for our 2nd Amendment. By far and away this has done more in even distant memory than the NRA in service of our right to keep and bear arms. You either love it or you dont.

    • Careful Reader July 24, 2017, 8:39 pm

      $339 to make *5* of them. Not one of them. So $68 bucks apiece? For an 80% lower not requiring a jig, drill, mill or router…that isn’t bad.

    • Mark N. July 29, 2017, 1:53 am

      In some states, California among them, and probably NY, NJ and Mass., you cannot legally buy an unregistered firearm; all transactions must take place through an FFL. But up until the first of this year in California, you could legally build an unregistered lower. Now not so much; but why they expect this to stop the illegal production of 80% lowers is anyone’s guess. Moreover, to heighten the insanity, California, which long ago banned “assault weapons” but was faced with an end around through the use of the Bullet button, outlawed bullet buttons, required everyone who has a BB rifle to register it as an AW. (the registration program is still not online and has been delayed by at least 6 months), but still allows us to own “featureless rifles” (that do not have vertical forward hand grips, pistol grips, “flash hiders” or collapsible stocks) the DO NOT have to be registered as assault weapons. ‘Featureless” rifles do NOT have to have mag locks, but can use a standard release–thus defeating the goal of the new law.

    To each their own but the same question remains to me. “Why”? Why in hell do people want to stir up the anti gun crowd and keep preaching the dooms day when civilians must have guns with no serial numbers, run around in no see me clothing, paint their faces and cater to the manufactures of do it yourself guns…. If that day ever happens there is enough private owned quality AR type weapons that have changed hands so many times that I wouldn’t worry about anyone knowing where it came from.
    It is so stupid to read comments over the years from the conceal carry groups and arm chair quarterbacks on what to carry, what to make and what to buy from weapons, to bill fold knives. Oh and don’t get me started on the must have seal flash light that has been rammed down our throats for the last 3 years. or the need to carry three guns like one guy says he never leaves home without.. Leave the defending of America to the professionals and if the shit ever hits our shores and our military can’t handle it and a “Call to Arms” ever goes out I’m sure no one in power will give a dam if your weapon has a serial number or not. Rant over.

Just don’t like some of what the gun ownership and companies and survivalist are trying to peddle to the American Public.. 🙂

      Larry; One of the best “rants” I’ve seen in quite a while and I believe there are more than a few of us out here who agree.

      I think it has more to do with exercising the right than it has to do with any practical benefit or advantage that making a firearm yourself may have. More or less, “Because I can”.
      It may have some worth in states that have legislated a requirement that all firearms transfers must be conducted through an FFL and entered into his/her bound book, thus creating a de facto registry of who owns what. Anywhere else and “I sold it to a guy years ago at a flea market” eliminates any paper-trail if you’re that concerned about it.

      Come to think of it home made AR receivers like this do have one positive aspect. While the anti-gun crowd may not like or listen to logic, the existence of such mold kits where you could puzzle out an effective mix from other epoxies and resins makes ’94 style bans pointless. In that light how well they perform isn’t as important as that they simply exist in the first place.

      Spoken like a true idiot and moron.
      IF you “trust” government, I have a bridge I’d like to sell to you. If you “trust” a government, move to Cuba, Iran or even better that Socialist Heaven, Valenzuela . Take a look at what happened in the past in China, Russia, and a host of other countries with their firearms and trust in the government to protect them.

        Valenzuela? Like the La Bamba guy?

      While I’m a not a conspiracy theorist that sees Govt. agents around every corner, I see your post as very naïveté to think that the Anti Gunners need any kind of ‘stirring’ to get them riled.
      It won’t make a hill of beans to the Anti’s what we do, they want no guns, period.
      They have stated it in private and in public, no stirring necessary.

    I tried an Omni lower and after about 600 rounds the bolt release was so slopy it would not work with any of my magpul mags.
    It was replaced with an Anderson witch took about 20 minutes to put together.

    I’m wondering why he choose violet.
    Clay, is this your way of telling us you’re thinking about going back in as a Cav Scout?

    • Bob Money July 24, 2017, 1:49 pm

      It is so it doesn\’t get mixed up with the metal ones in the parts pile or scrap bin.

    Darren I agree, a lost bet or one of those ideas that comes up during a night of drinking

  • Luke July 24, 2017, 6:21 am

    You can’t fool me. I can tell. . . .your heart was really in this. LOL

  • Joe July 24, 2017, 6:12 am

    Their are too many questions regarding the receiver making process after watching the circus clown version of making the damm thing to bother with.

  • Darren July 24, 2017, 3:22 am

    Okay, so what bet did you lose that made you have to do this? I’m more interested in that than the goop gun.
