The original was awesome when you're 11 and playing with your GI Joes. Grunt used to kill the Cobra Officer and then Breaker would grab his AK-47 and shout "Wolverines!" That was before the cartoon came out, and told me how to play of course.

I don't see the purpose of this device at all. Why do I want 10 drilled out AR lowers that I can't sell? In order for this to pay for itself you'd have to turn out a ton of them, but unless you're outfitting a private army why would anyone want 10 ARs? I would make like a standard 16" AR and a Pistol AR, after that if I can't sell them without committing a felony why the fuck do I want this? It's not as if you can rejigger it to make AR-10s or anything. I would like to own a stable full of M1 variants though if I had the cash or by some miracle they were able to sell Norinco M1A's outside Canada. JAE-100 M1A, Sage M1A, Troy M1A, AICS M1A, Juggernaut Bullpup M1A, FA M14, M21...Even still that's 7 M1's in my fantasy world and we're still not into paying for itself territory if we're talking ARs. Dunno I think AR's are boring by comparison to the most beautiful battle rifle ever devised Tongue. Then if someone shoots up a school with one of these so-called "ghost guns" everybody know's 80% lowers will be banned in a heartbeat and all you're left with is an expensive brick with a endmill in it... I'd be much more interested if this thing could cut one from scratch out of a chunk of aluminum or plastic.

This isn't to make 10 lowers that you can sell. This is to make 10 lowers for SHTF that you can build into ARs and have a fully stocked armory.

Ummmm. yeah, OK. Good answer.


Ten lowers:
$1,200 + cost of materials or $399.50 + shipping and transfers...



$39.95

If this was more than a 'one trick pony' and could do more it might be worth the $1200 price tag. As it stands its just another poke in the eye of the ruling class in CA. Hence the name Ghost Gun in honor of that states legislature.

If it could do a blank billet into an AR10 or AR15 receiver, or do a 1911 80% receiver it would be worth the cost to the home hobbyist. But since it can't its just good PR for Defense Distributed.

Pass.

Well off to welding class so I can finish my CETME flat build Big Grin

Agree GCA about it being a one trick pony, but I would also look at it as a stepping stone to a device that's able to machine a completed receiver from billet. Wait a couple of years, they'll probably have something on the market that's able to do exactly that.

They already have that, it's called a 5 axis CNC machine.
