    ghostgun1.jpg ghost2.jpg This bad guy in Baltimore used this AR15 pistol to shoot at cops. He lost. It struck me odd that there are no markings on the lower in the usual spot. Could this be an 80% lower made into the evil Ghost Gun? Will they use this as their poster child now? Thoughts?

    Grey areas abound with the Kit building, not least of which is what happens if you use one to defend your self or others, What happens to you then? if it's not "on the books" but it is a legal fire arm ( not an SBR or NFA) acording to the BATF, I wonder what the legal president if then?

    So, they completed an 80% lower to use to shoot cops but they followed the SBR laws? I think this is a plant. That and the firearms look completely unscuffed.

    80% lower to shoot at cops, but follows every other law? To me it translates to it just being a throwdown gun or something along those lines. o_O

    The $29.99 BB gun red dot may have been a factor.

    One good reason to add name and serial engraving to your 80%s once done...

    Bolus, what's your take between the Genesis and TN Arms EPLs? Granted, the Genesis is cheaper and includes jig and bits, but... just like a WalMart laptop, low cost doesn't always bring "value for money" to the party.

    Polymer lowers are a NO-GO, to date. Unless you just want a range toy, don't do it.

    What difference does it make what markings are on a weapon used to shoot at police? Or a license plate on a truck running over innocent people in Niece? The question is rendered moot when the item becomes a murder weapon.

    Ghost gun? How do I find it when I need it?


    I keep aluminum by the front door. And a bat that my grandpa whittled out of hickory, bout 100yrs ago, by the back door!
    I guess I'm just a nostalgic old fart!;)

    they are good to learn to build on since polymer is easier to modify, does not need to be recoated if scratched, etc. Would I want one to travel the wasteland fighting for guzzoline? Probably not.

    I dont know this one. since you are getting a jig, get both the TN arms one and then plan to get several aluminum ones. If you have all the tools to make one, you should have some in aluminum ready to go if something like a ban comes around.
