Cody Wilson and Defense Distributed are currently selling their “Ghost Gunner” CNC machine for $1,500.00. It forges a path for Americans to make homemade AR-15 rifles in their garages, basements, or anywhere else they wish to set up the compact CNC machine.
In effect, the machine makes every man an AR-15 manufacturer.
In 2013, Cody Wilson’s Defense Distributed put itself on the map with a 3D printed gun that anyone with a 3D printer and blueprints for the gun—which were uploaded to the Internet—could make in their home, or office, or wherever their printer was located. In May 2013, the State Department demanded Wilson remove the blueprints from the Internet, which he did, but not without challenging the State Department’s legal authority to make such a demand.
