Good Morning...reading something that you're not sure about kind of makes one 'Nosey'
Ghost Gunner II was listed on Google where I always try to 'sort things out'......
WHAT....WHY....HOW....Is it like the 'hunting for Snipes' that I was nailed with as a
kid....out there in the dark forest....a gunny-sack, beating on a pie-tin with a stick, calling out in the
darkness, "HERE SNIPE...HERE SNIPE"? Chief

"We're selling a THING, and there is a $250 deposit to get on the waiting list. We hope to ship the THING eventually, but we don't know exactly when.

"Deposit on the THING is non-refundable."

Can you say SCAM???

lots of people have them and are using them to finish 80 percent lowers

I guess if you want a DIY AR15 that bad, you can buy one, maybe go in with some friends and have a big party finising your 80 percent lowers on the weekend

so it's just a big cnc jig / machine.

feed in 80% lowers and it spits out lowers ready for parts kits?

IF that was true, and you were buing 80%'ers by the case to make and sell..then you COULD make money thru volume.

If you were buying 80% lowers by the case, finishing them, and selling the results, you would need to get a manufacturing FFL and assign serial numbers to all those lowers, and the buyers would have to do a 4473 and be called in.

Kinda defeats the purpose of the 80% lower, don't it?

how do manufacturers do it? aren't they buying lower blanks and finishing them?

I'm not disagreeing about the license and regulation, just looking at the 1500$ tool from a business stand point. Sure.. it's 1500$.. but if you are selling guns in volume.. it very well could pay for itself.

For personal use? Unless you are a 'I want one of each' type collector.. it will take a while to come out. $ wise.

I guess a group of friends could go in on one, and as someone else mentioned, eah have a handfull of 80% rcvrs and have a milling party one weekend and each guy have the fun of making his own gun or something.

Maybee a club could purchase a machine, and let members have access to it for each person to make their own lower???

If you make a gun for you own use, you don't put a SN on it.
No FFL needed

If you buy this machine and make one for yourself and your friend comes buy and borrowed your machine and took it home and made himself a lower from a 80%, no FFL and so on.

Its a niche market, but I think the market IS there for low volume, made as needed rigs like this. Sounds just like a dedicated cnc with a set jig.

Looking at the math, if you and 9 friends went in, and bought 20 rcvr blanks, and each guy made 2 for himself, I think $ would be a wash. If 3 were made each, that's where you might say it has actually made stuff cheaper across the board.

Who's into ar's that dont have 3 lowers?

Lets see, mental math here.

Counting rifle and pistol lowers... I have.. More than 3..
