What is the Ghost Gunner 3?
The Ghost Gunner 3 is a portable, mini CNC machine designed to mill out a host of unfinished firearms from the comfort of your own home.
The term “Ghost Gun” is a term that was made up by anti-gun politicians and media to scare the general public.
These people don’t believe that regular citizens should have the ability to manufacture their own firearms, even though that falls well within the Second Amendment.
This is where the maker of the Ghost Gunner 3, Defense Distributed, stepped in. Their goal was to give everyone the ability to finish guns in their own home, the way the founders of our country intended.
The Ghost Gunner 3 doesn’t have anything to do with 3D printing.
Instead, it takes 80 percent lower receivers and finishes them. It comes with the code and ability to complete 80 percent lowers for AR 15s, AR 10s, Polymer 80 Glocks, and M1911 frames.
This Desktop CNC machine is easy enough to use that even a dumb guy like me can easily complete a lower.
Now a lot of people familiar with CNC machinery, mills, and machine working will see the price of the Ghost Gunner and scoff. And it’s true, you can get a more useful system for less.
The difference with the GG3 is that it’s easy to use.
This takes the required training to use a more complicated and useful system and reduces it to something anyone can do.
The Ghost Gunner 3 is 42 pounds of metal and machinery that takes a hunk of metal or polymer and turns it into a gun.
An 80% receiver or frame of any kind does not count as a firearm because it isn’t yet finished (though the ATF wants to change this).
Because it isn’t a firearm, there is no serial number, no 4473 to fill out, and they are typically outside the realm of normal gun control. You can generally order one directly to your home without the need for an FFL.
Besides the act of being rebellious, building your own gun is a ton of fun, and the Ghost Gunner 3 will do a majority of the hard work for you. All that’s left once it’s done, is for you to assemble the weapon and then hit the range with it.
As an added bonus, it’s also capable of engraving numbers and letters which is great for engraving NFA lowers and putting serial numbers on guns for states like California.
The Ghost Gunner 3 is be capable of milling a weapon twice as fast as the Ghost Gunner 2 and may even have the capability of milling out AK-47 lowers at some point in the future.
The Ghost Gunner yells boo at the anti-gun movement as well as offering a neat, desktop CNC machine that anyone who loves guns will enjoy.
The Ghost Gunner 3 is currently available for pre-order and made in batches. The pre-order requires a 500 dollar deposit and full price is $2,120. According to their website, the next batch will begin in Q1 of 2022.
