Billet Rifle Systems Ghost Gun 80% Lower

On January 13, 2014, California State Senator, Kevin de Leon held a press conference where he discussed legislation that would ban the purchase and manufacture of “plastic and self-assembled firearms.”   During the press conference, Leon made some blatantly false statements concerning modern sporting rifles.

Such statements included “Ghost gun…” “Thirty caliber clip…” “Thirty bullets in a half a second

The gun community had a field day with these comments.

Jerry Miculek (moment of silence for mentioning his name) made an awesome YouTube video.

Matt from the Military Arms Channel wrote a letter to Kevin De Leon on the Military Arms Channel blog.

Billet Rifle Systems made an 80% lower called the Ghost Gun 80% lower.

Ghost Gun 80% lower. Metal is Cerakoted white.

If you want a 100%/Complete Ghost Gun lower, call Billet Rifle Systems and speak to the owner Chris Garrison. I am sure he would be happy to make one for you.

For the record, the only firearm capable of firing 30 rounds in a half second would be a six barreled mini gun tuned to fire 3600 rounds per minute.

    Hahaha…Awesome. These lowers are very well made and look great by the way. Get out your ghost traps and don’t cross the streams!

    Someone with far better editing skills than I needs to make a “ghost gun” video for Youtube by editing the AR out of a video.

    See if we can’t get “cloaked firearms” added to that list.

    A few things I learned from this article:

    – Anti-gun advocates are hilarious to read about
    – Nerdy guns are a thing

    • USMC03Vet

      Video games stopped being niche entertainment medium decades ago. It’s as “nerdy” as knowing how to use a computer in 2014. That is to say it’s as mainstream and more profitable than even movies today.

      • ha

        haha nerd

  • me ohmy

    all we need now is a PAC MAN GUN, and we’re set!!!

  • Keith

    Wait why moment of silence for Jerry Miculek?

  • jamezb

    The doofus probably thinks a Mini-14 is a “Mini-gun”

    • MrNinjaToes

      “This is a Mini-Gun 14. This right here [sic] 14 barrels. 30 Caliber Clip.100 [sic] to dispense 22 caliber bullets in [sic] half second” (Law enforcement Officer standing behind the Senator, slapping face with palm and shaking head.)

    Do you make a pac-man gun too??? LOL!!!!!!

    It may be too late for us in California. DeLeon’s bill passed the Legislature and is sitting on Governor Brown’s desk. He should veto it if for no other reason than that no one can seem to make heads or tails of what the bill requires. One of the big features of the bill is that it is retroactive. That’s right, it applies to all homemade guns that are not registered with the Dept. of Justice, including handguns. The cut off date seems to be 1968 (the date the fed first required serial numbers on all firearms), i.e., curios and relics appear to be exempt, but that is kind of iffy at this point. Any unserialized firearm must obtain a serial number and have it engraved to federal standards on the receiver, with proof of doing so sent to the DOJ. There is of course a fee ($19), and all registrants will be subjected to a background check. Thre is also a provision that 3D and polymer guns will have to have a 3.7 oz piece of stainless steel embedded in the receiver, a provision borrowed from the now expired federal “invisible guns” legislation. What is unclear is whether this provision applies to polymer AR lowers, lowers that would be destroyed trying to embed such a chunk of steel into the thin walls, and which won’t shoot anyway without a large–and solid metal–upper.
    One of the more bizarre aspects of the law is that all homebuilts will need to be registered, but all store bought long guns–which were not subject to registration at time of sale until January 1, 2014 and going forward, will remain unregistered.
    Last but not least, the guns that Deleon was waiving around as “ghost guns” included rifles that had illegal features and were probably brought into the state illegally. For example, one was an SBR, which is banned, another had a large capacity magazine, which might or might not be banned, and another did not have a California compliant bullet button. Of course, none of them were registered–but s of the date of his speech, only a very few guns, those sold after the first of the year, had to be registered. And he liked to call them “crime guns.” Which does not necessarily mean that any of those guns were used to commit a crime, but instead applies to guns seized during an arrest, whether the arrestee was a gangbanger, a felon, or simply a first offender.
    We can’t fight these people. They control the cities, the cities have 60% of the votes, and thus the cities control the Legislature.

      To sum up, if Brown signs the bill, there will be no point to building an 80% lower, unless of course you are into that kind of thing. Your build will have to have a serial number assigned to it before you start your build, and that number must be engraved on the receiver, and your rifle will be registered with the State.

      • UpChuck.Liberals

        Or you can simply build one and ignore these dypshyts. Exactly what do you think the compliance with this ‘law’ will be? 10%? I’d guess that on a good day for these jerks.

  • TiC

    That is one great roll mark.

  • Anonymoose

    There needs to be a Pacman AK to go with it.

    • gunslinger

      that woudl be great
