Tennessee Arms Company made waves on the internet recently when it announced the production of its clear AR-15 stripped lower receiver, aptly named the “Ghost Gun.” The receiver itself is constructed from UV-stabilized nylon and weighs around 2.6 ounces. The company specifically states that the clear receiver is meant to be an educational tool and showcase item only, but that did not stop Tennessee Arms founder David Roberts from subjecting it to a short, 270-round “torture” test.
The clear lower can be purchased online for $59.77 plus shipping. Due to high demand, the company states that shipping may take as long as three weeks.
Tennessee Arms also produces a complete version of the lower with a CMMG single-stage trigger for $175 plus shipping. It weighs significantly heavier than the stripped version at 1 pound and 13.6 ounces. It is also the specific model used in the torture test above.
