Dagny Dagger Ammo Allows Legal Access To Armor-Penetrating Bullet

Breaking News: The Dagny Dagger legally-unrestricted handgun ammunition project. Will allow citizens first legal access to armor-penetrating bullets since 1986, circumventing Federal law with a ammunition.

USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- The first Atlas Arms concept in development, the Dagny Dagger project will develop a new type of legally-unrestricted handgun ammunition, which in 9mm Luger is easily able to penetrate all soft body armor and some rifle-rated hard armor. This will allow citizens the first legal access to armor-penetrating bullets since 1986.

The projectiles are designed to be more readily home-manufactured than traditional AP ammo, and all research and data including Ghost Gunner code will be released open-source. The work will begin on 9mm Luger with future plans for Dagny Dagger loadings in 10mm/.40SW, 5.56, .308, and possibly 5.7.

The Dagger will also debut APHP (Armor-Penetrating Hollow Point) bullets, a novel projectile design which boasts superior armor penetration while expanding and fragmenting in soft, unarmored targets for multirole performance. Visit AtlasArms.org for more info.

Dagny Dagger AP Legality

The Reagan administration signed legislation to kill general availability of a few technologies critical to a well-regulated militia while exempting government personnel. One of these technologies is armor piercing ammunition. Such property restriction is ethically unacceptable and even illegal by this federal government's own charter document. But we will reclaim the forbidden fire, by outflanking the regulators' definitions and imaginations.

We at Atlas Arms recognize the most revered principal of justice, equality under the law, which in turn recognizes no authority for any government to deny to its constituents any rights reserved for its own agents.

The definition of “armor piercing ammunition” established by the prohibiting legislation is any projectile or projectile core which is characterized by either of two criteria:

  1. Composition entirely of tungsten alloys, iron alloys, brass, bronze, beryllium copper, or depleted uranium
  2. A full jacket which comprises more than a quarter of the total projectile mass

While manufacturing or importing “armor piercing ammunition” remains illegal, the Dagny Dagger escapes these criteria by use of obscure alloys and careful geometry. To ensure federal legality, we will submit prototypes to the determination branch of the ATF under the counsel of a well-respected firearms law firm. Local laws vary, but the Dagger will be legal for individuals to manufacture and possess in most of the 50 states.

Dagny Dagger AP Armor-Piercing Ammo Ammunition Features

Notably novel in design and approach, both project and projectile boast an impressive pedigree of unique and innovative methods, features, and abilities. Grouped in order of completion:

  • Published Manufacturing Specs
  • Published Loading Data
  • IIIA Soft Penetration
  • Federally Legal
  • Easily Homemade
  • Ghost Gunner Code
  • APHP Multirole Bullet
  • IIIA Plate Penetration
  • $2/rnd Market
  • $1/rnd DIY
  • Additional Calibers
  • IIIA+ Soft Penetration
  • III Plate Penetration
  • $1/rnd Market Logistics

Development of the 9mm variant of the Dagger is estimated to cost $30k, including prototyping, testing equipment and materials, and legal counsel. An additional $30k will pay for a manufacturing operation to fill demand and fund continuing research and development efforts. Upon full funding, the “DD9” will take as little as six months to develop and publish, depending on legal factors such as ATF response times.

To raise these funds, a crowdfunding campaign is hosted at GunDynamics.com where you can donate via credit card to help us place this technology into your hands. Your donation is vital to the project, ensuring we can stay independent of investment interests and put publication above profit. We are honored by your faith in us to deliver on our claims.

Atlas Arms cannot accept preorders, but tokens of our appreciation are available for significant donations.

Austin Jones — Aerospace Engineer
Co-founder of 20/20 Armor, Austin has previous experience in start-up enterprise, application of experimental technology, and soft body “armor”. In addition, design work on micrometeoroid shielding for soft-bodied spacecraft has contributed to in-depth knowledge of the principals and technologies employed in textile-based ballistic protection. He’s an ethically-principled engineer who harbors love for Liberty, individual creation, his fellow man, and the spontaneity of life. Austin considers himself a follower of Christ by second birth and Okie by first, and after these, a citizen of Earth.

Mike Crumling — Gunsmith
Mike is an independent gunsmith with interest in homemade firearms. He made headlines and international news when he built structural cartridges for use in 3D-printed firearms, and has continued to design new models of 3D-printed and home-built weapons.

Lauren — Scientist
Lauren is an astronomical data scientist whose professional work involves data processing and analysis to infer object properties and characteristics, a useful skill for informing design direction. She also fills a critical role as the company’s secretary.

George — Materials Engineer
George is a mechanical materials engineer at a plant dealing in aerospace and medical components such as engines and prosthetics. Like these projectiles, such applications require very special compositions and properties for high-performance service in demanding conditions and restrictive environments.

Dagny Dagger AP FAQ

Q: Where do the company and project names come from?
A: A long, beautiful, and classic romantic novel Atlas Shrugged, and the main heroine, Dagny Taggart. Read it.

Q: Is this legal?
A: Yes. We are in contact with the ATF and submit prototypes for compliance confirmation. No federal law restricts the manufacture and sale of ammunition of this form.

Q: When do you expect to be finished with research and development?
A: Six months after the campaign is fully-funded, dependant on ATF reply times.

Q: How much will the ammunition cost?
A: Initially, costs will be comparable to high-grade defensive or match ammunition, around $2/loaded cartridge, before an expected fall to around $1 after some market scaling, comparable to most general hollow point ammunition. Home manufacture can reduce these costs.

Q: What about the safety of X?
A: for {−∞<X<∞}, Liberty>Security.

Q: Can I help the project in addition to funding and spreading the word?
A: Possibly. Atlas Arms could use some more like-minded, principled professionals at low or no cost to improve and hasten the development of this and other projects. Email us.

*We cannot send ammunition where illegal, and will not send to known violent persons. Atlas Arms reserves the right to deny ammunition to anyone we believe intends to initiate violence. No one involved in this project believes in offensive violence toward anyone and we condemn any victimizing crime committed by anyone with any weapon.
