Ghost gun

In the United States, a ghost gun is a firearm made by an individual, without serial numbers or other identifying markings. The term is used by gun control advocates, gun rights advocates, law enforcement, and some in the firearm industry. By making the gun themselves, owners may legally bypass background checks and registration regulations. Under U.S. federal law, the creation and possession of ghost guns by individuals for personal use is allowed. In contrast, firearms for sale or distribution must bear manufacturer's markings and unique serial numbers, and a federal license is required to manufacture them. Some states have passed laws restricting ghost guns.
