DAYTON, Nev. (April 4, 2022) — An NBC News article titled “Polymer80’s name has become synonymous with ‘ghost guns.’ Now it’s in the crosshairs.” is an attempt to distort facts, sensationalize crime statistics and turn an innovative company into a villain.

Anti-Second Amendment politicians, advocacy groups and members of the media use the label “ghost gun” to strike fear and trick the public. Those individuals and groups want the public to believe that privately made firearms are synonymous with crime, even though thousands, if not millions, of Americans have lawfully engaged in this right and freedom for centuries. The truth is, there is a long, storied tradition of firearms use and innovation in America, including the freedom to participate in the build and customization of firearms. Americans have, for centuries, participated in this great tradition in compliance with federal, state, and local laws applicable to them. 

Polymer80, Inc. has always operated — and will continue to operate — lawfully, in compliance with local, state and federal laws. Polymer80, Inc. will also continue to vigorously challenge encroachments and attacks on freedom, such as attempts to co-opt the term “ghost gun” for political purposes (whether it be through outright bans on privately made firearms or ill-conceived restrictions) or attack the Second Amendment and the rights of law-abiding Americans. Polymer80 stands ready to defend the constitutional rights of every American to engage their freedom.

About Polymer80:Polymer80, Inc. designs and develops innovative firearms, firearm-related products, and accessories. A cornerstone of its foundation is providing ways for customers to lawfully participate in the build process and practice the right to bear arms embedded in the U.S. Constitution. We summarize this with our motto of “Engage Your Freedom.” Find out more at
