...and if you did, does it work?

I was wondering if anybody here bought one too. I fully expect it to function as advertised but at $1500 I would get a real mill that can accomplish everything the ghost gunner can and more but wont be automated....

I don't think these are really being delivered.

That would be a great scam. Here pay us for the CNC and you can make all the lowers you want, And then no one gets it.
I think having a manual mill would be better as long as you had the experience to run it.

Shipping

Blog

Other sources also report shipping including their own blog. Apparently UPS and Fed Ex refused to ship them so they are going USPS.

Someone on Calguns bought one. He was trying to resell in the marketplace NIB. After googling, he sold it.

I am really interested in these machines, but the state of the art with desktop CNC and especially additive processes like 3D printing is moving lightning fast.  Anything you buy now will no longer be state of the art a year from now, or even playing in the same league.

I stopped into Best Buy a month ago to see a 3D printer for sale, with intricate samples of delicate plastic on display as well.  I think those cost <$1000, and the price of the printer and materials will plummet in a matter of months.  Newer stronger materials are marketed with bewildering frequency.

I am waiting for a cheap 3D printer that prints metal with a binder that can be sintered in a pottery oven.  Just think - the ability to print and make a Springfield 1903, or a classic S&W revolver using files downloaded off the net with a cheap <$1000 printer, or even just thick steak like revolvers like the GP100.

Or you could cast your own lower out of plastic for $2.50 with a $30 mold.

Here is an interesting report from Wired magazine on the Ghost Gunner unit as well as some other methods including an honest report on the drill press method.....
