Currently, you can take an 80% receiver and finish milling it yourself to make a home-built firearm.
However, the ATF is working to change the rules so that 80% receivers and any firearm parts or kits must be serialized and transfered just like a completed firearm, FBI NICS check and all.
When that happens, you’ll have to create guns from scratch to keep them off Big Brother’s radar, and that’s where Ghost Gunner comes into play.
Ghost Gunner 3 CNC
The new table-top CNC machine from Ghost Gunner improves on their gen. 2 version with a stiffer chassis for better-quality builds and more options for receivers. You can complete 80% builds of AR-15s, AR-308s, M1911s, Polymer 80s, and AKs. The unit comes with programming to finish billets for all these guns, and you get billets from Ghost Gunner, as well.
The big thing is that now they include programs to completely build the serialized portion of an AR-15 lower receiver from scratch. These so-called AR-00s are milled from a solid billet of aluminum (also supplied by Ghost Gunner) and cost about $25.
The Ghost Gunner 3 makes the upper portion of the lower receiver. You then add the rest of the receiver and the buffer tube ring tower. These cost about $80.
But now you’ve got the fully-functional guts of a so-called “ghost gun.”
This CNC machine is the opposite of a 3D printer. It uses cutting bits to remove material from a billet in three axes. It’s driven by your computer running their software and it works with Windows or Mac.
Right now they only have 0% profiles for AR lowers, and for the 80% builds listed above. Soon they will 0% options for the other guns, too.
You can go to Ghost Gunner’s website and reserve your Ghost Gunner 3 now with a $500 downpayment. The complete unit will cost $2,500 and the AR jig and bits cost $295, additionally. Small price to pay for freedom.
