When the original Ghost Gunner was launched it was an AR-15 receiver machine. With this update Ghost Gunners can now produce ARs, of the -15 and -10 variety, as well as 1911s and Glock-compatible pistols. While the Ghost Gunner is free to operate, it’s not free to own, with a $1,675 sticker. The machine takes 80 percent receivers, which Wilson also sells, and completes them into 100 percent firearms.
Building compete firearms from 80 percent kits isn’t anything new. People have been doing this for decades. What’s different here is that the Ghost Gunner is an automated, turn-key process. An 80 percent firearm is just a gun-shaped hunk of metal. It doesn’t fire, it has no moving parts; it’s a paperweight. A 100 percent firearm also doesn’t do much — it’s still just a single hunk — but it can be completed with off-the-shelf parts. Only the receiver counts as the “firearm” by ATF standards. Everything else is replaceable and can be bought over the counter.
Up until now the Ghost Gunner could only make rifle-based guns. These can be compact but they’re hardly concealable. Wilson is taking a major step toward democratizing gun ownership now that the machine can make Glock- and 1911-pattern pistols. It takes a little skill to build a gun out of a firearm receiver, but nothing that can’t be accomplished with time and practice. This is particularly true for Glock-pattern guns, which are designed to use interchangeable parts. Because these use standard and aftermarket gun parts, these homemade guns can be just as well-made or better-made than common factory-produced firearms….
