Order of Operations
It's important to familiarize yourself with the order of operations Ghost Gunner is capable of; this allows you to complete a lower from start to finish, pick-up where you left off, or to clean-up work done in the past. The AK-47 Code will complete the following operations in succession or separate depending on the selected file within the DD cut code.
- Left Side Front and Rear Trunnions
- Right Side Front and Rear Trunnions
- Trigger Holes
With a growing library of support firearms and third-party support, it can get easy to get mixed up or to lose a folder. The AK47 Starter Kit comes with the latest AK47 code available, please note that the one file will contain multiple operations allowing you to complete the steps all at once, one side at a time, etc.

Ensure lower placement
Verifying placement is critical to ensuring a clean and accurate cut of your AK lower, fortunately, the installation is only required once until the operation's complete. The bottom, corners, and sides should be flush with the walls and base of the fixture as shown above.
Verify Probe Placement + Verify Connection
The AK-47 Starter Kit utilizes an aluminum probe block so that Ghost Gunner can index itself with your lower receiver. The aluminum fixture or AK jig has locator pins so the probe block can easily be donned on and off as needed. It's important the aluminum block is seated securely and bottomed out in the probe block fixture, pictured above. Ghost Gunner features a green LED located
