Austin Jones


Austin is the Chief Engineer of Atlas Arms, a research firm devoted to weapons technology research focused on empowering individuals. Previous professional pursuits include invention and founding of 20/20 Armor, an electronic body protector for combat sports, and design work in the private space industry on micrometeor shielding for soft-bodied spacecraft. 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 Christian by second birth, an Okie by first birth, and a citizen of Earth more than of any nation state.


About Atlas Arms

In spirit, Atlas Arms was born in 2011 on a design for a home smokeless powder factory, which turns out to be even more complicated and dangerous than it sounds.

Reviving that dormant spirit, inspiration struck early in 2017 for one of the most disruptive firearms technology advancement concepts imaginable. Three other major innovative concepts followed, each aimed at upending a particular technical limit of current arms technology, and the associated regulatory handles. While the other concepts remain confidential, the Dagny Dagger project will be the first brought to bear, most easily achievable for a young, independant enterprise. Several smaller projects in weapons manufacturing are also planned for development interstitial to the larger endeavors.

Atlas Arms Research Inc. is registered as a 501(C)(3) nonprofit reseach corporation so that all donations are tax-deductable. You can help us empower citizens with improved weapons while saving your wealth from sticky federal fingers! A non-monopoly and open-source operation, finding profit-driven investment capital would be difficult. Your donations ensure that we can afford to gift this technology to the public rather than restrict access for return on investment. A future manufacturing branch will help cover research costs in the long term, but charitable giving supports 100% of the work at present.


If there is a single ideology held by the entirety of Atlas Arms contributors, it is individualism, as one might tell from our motto above and the Atlas Shrugged namesakes. We assert that individuals are the true units of humanity, that every person owns himself, and that every individual bears responsibility for building the world in which he wishes to be. From this follows our political motivation and strategy. Other principles generally favored in this camp are liberty, voluntaryism, market economics, non-aggression, cooperation, integrity, and craftsmanship.

It is one's own decision whether and with what to arm one's self, and no collective, majority mob, or ballot box may constitute a legitimate injunction against that choice. Firearm possession endows an equalizing power and dignity to attack one's enemies, or to defend life and livelihood, and that's romantically beautiful.

It's not enough to passively beg permision to keep our guns and dwindling firearms freedom when an election or mass shooting comes around. Instead we must actively fight to take back what has been stolen. Here at Atlas Arms, we don't ask for a world of firearms freedom; we build it ourselves. For a century, the state military apparatus has monopolized small arms tech while some scraps eventually fall into the hands of the people. The strategy of Atlas Arms is to reverse this dynamic, ensuring weapons technology purpose-built for individual use and ease of access beyond state control. 

The past decade has seen successful efforts to protect generations-old weapons tech from the next wave of gun control. We are enthusiastic supporters of this work and it serves as an inspiration, but Atlas Arms takes a more ambitious approach. We are creating brand new technology so that the future of firearms will be inherently prohibition-proof from the ground up!

Offer Alternatives

Offer simple, safe, and open-source alternatives to the restricted production and sale of conventional munitions.

Increase Availability

Increase the availability of effective weapons throughout the industrialized world.

Capitalize to Proliferate

Capitalize on technical superiority to proliferate cheap and uncontrolable arms by market demand.


The Dagny Dagger

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 able to penetrate all soft armor and some rifle-rated hard armor (yes, it is possible). This will allow citizens the first legal access to armor-penetrating ammunition since 1986.

The projectiles are intended 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 on soft, unarmored targets for multirole performance.


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 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 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.


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:

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 6 months to develop and publish, depending on legal factors such as ATF response times.

To raise these funds, a crowdfunding campaign is hosted at where you can donate via credit card (click here for BTC) 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 place publication above profit. We are honored by your faith in us to deliver on our claims.

New Legal Armor Piercing Handgun Round Announced ~ VIDEO

By John Crump - AMMOLAND - Jan 15, 2019

Dagny Dagger AP Armor-Piercing Ammo Ammunition

Dagny Dagger AP Armor-Piercing Ammo Ammunition

U.S.A. –-( 1982 NBC ran a "Prime Time" special on Teflon-coated bullets labeling them "armored piercing" bullets. Their "expert" claimed that the Teflon increased the bullet's penetration power by 20%. The news show argued that these bullets were a danger to police. In this special, NBC created the term "cop killer" for all armor-piercing bullets.

The truth of the matter was that Teflon did not increase the penetration power at all. In fact, Teflon cut down on the penetration power of the round. The Teflon was used to improve the life of the gun owner's barrel, but this was in 1982 and the World Wide Web didn't exist to correct that wrong.

People were not as skeptical as they are now, and the confidence of the truthfulness of the mainstream media was high. The alternative media was just a blip on the radar. It only existed in mailings from small organizations that didn't have the capital to reach the masses.

Anti-gun advocates used this mischaracterization of Teflon-coated bullets to push for the banning of armor piercing rounds for "the safety of law enforcement officers."

In August of 1986 HR 3132 — PL 99-408 was passed by Congress and signed by President Reagan. The new law would ban any handgun round that's core consisted of tungsten alloys, steel, iron, brass, bronze, beryllium copper, or depleted uranium. It would also prohibit any handgun round whose jacket weights more than 25 percent of the total weight of the projectile.

The public was banned from access to armored piercing handgun rounds. That is until now.

A libertarian aerospace engineer named Austin Thomas Jones didn't like the fact that the government had access to the armored piercing handguns rounds, but the government prevented the general public from owning them. He viewed the law as tyrannical.

Jones has designed soft armor for combat sports. He developed micrometeoroid shielding for soft-bodied spacecraft such as modules for the International Space Station. Micrometeoroid moves at speeds that far exceeds that of bullets, and the strength of the material must be far superior to that of soft body armor.

The work of Defense Distributed on 3D printed firearms inspired Jones to take action to use science to defeat the armored piercing bullet ban. He read through the law and noticed that only certain metals were banned from use in bullets. He thought he could defeat draconian law by simply finding a material that wasn't banned by the law and designing a superior projectile.


Atlas Arms was born. Much like Defense Distributed, Atlas Arms is a non-profit. It takes its name from the iconic book "Atlas Shrugged" by Ayn Rand. Rand is a hero to many people and one of the founding voices of the modern libertarian movement.

He recruited Mike Crumling to the project. Crumling was the gunsmith that designed and built the structural cartridges that was used in 3D printed firearms. At the time of joining the project, Crumling was working on other 3D printed firearms endeavors.

The next person that Jones recruited to the team of rebel libertarians was an astronomical data scientist named Lauren. Lauren uses data processing and analysis to infer object properties and characteristics. Her skill set would become critical to the project.

Jones was able to convince a mechanical materials engineer named George that he needed to fight back against tyrannical gun control. George works on aerospace and medical components such as prosthetics. These fields require the use of lightweight yet durable materials. His skill set was invaluable to the team.

With the team assembled the next step was to determine the core of the round. The team knew what materials they couldn't use, so they started an analysis of other viable materials. In the past few years there has been an explosion of new metal alloys and research within material engineering.

The material would have to satisfy two factors that would make it a viable choice for Altas Arms. The first the material couldn't be cost prohibited. The second thing is that it must be readily available to the general public since one of the goals of the project is to make it as DIY-friendly as possible.

Jones and company landed on an unnamed uncommon metal alloy. The material is still a closely guarded secret until all testing is complete to ensure they give the public the safest thing possible.

"We will be releasing loading data," Jones told me. "This will allow people to reload this ammunition at home themselves. We do not want to release any information that could possibly hurt the end-user."

The current law does not ban the material that Altas Arms chose. The new material also offers better performance than the metals that are illegal for use in a core of an old armor-piercing handgun rounds.

"The metal alloy is strong," Jones told me. "it is significantly harder and stronger than the materials that body armor is made out of."

The team wanted to increase the penetration power of their new round, but also did not want the round to underperform when the target was not in body armor. Their goal was to produce a hybrid round. They used their combined engineering skills to craft a unique design to the core which looks similar to a dagger. The jacket designed to expand and fragment in soft nonarmored targets.

Dagny Dagger AP Armor-Piercing Ammo Ammunition

The shape of the round inspired Jones to name it the Dagny Dagger. Currently, Atlas Arms will be producing the Dagny Dagger in 9mm. This 9mm round will be able to defeat all level III body armor. After the test phase Atlas Arms plans to offer the Dagny Dagger in 10mm/.40SW, 5.56, .308, and possibly 5.7.

The target price for The Dagny Dagger is $2 per round. Jones believes with more research and design changes as well as the ability to buy the materials in large quantities that Atlas Arms will be able to cut the price in half to $1 per round.

But this endeavor isn't about making money for Jones. It is about fighting back and making gun control obsolete which is the same goal as Defense Distributed. In the same vein as releasing the 3D gun files online, Atlas Arms will make their designs open source to the general public. The will allow anyone with the will and the means to produce the rounds including home reloaders. Within the year after Atlas Arms carries out all safety testing, all data will be released to the world.

"I want to publish everything open source," Jones told me. "I want to give it to the public to ensure that it is harder to suppress."

Jones is probably right about the government suppressing his ideas. I talked to one designer, who does not want to be named because he still deals with the government, who came up with another workaround of the armor piercing bullet ban years ago. This time the designer owned a for-profit company and submitted his design for a patent.

The federal government swooped in and said they would grant the patent, but also gave him the condition that he would only be allowed to sell to the federal government, and they were not interested in buying the round. Because of his other dealings with the federal government, he decided not to challenge them on the stipulation.

Que the FAKE News Attack

Jones will probably face a lot of backlash from anti-gun groups and people in the government who are not gun friendly. Jones is unconcerned with the possible backlash but does think that the government will try to amend the law to ban the new round.

"If they don't like what I'm doing so what," Jones told me. "What I am doing isn't illegal. I did it in a way that it is not illegal. They will try to amend the definition of armor-piercing bullets. Just like we defeated their imagination when they wrote the law the first time, we will defeat their imagination again when they rewrite the law."

Atlas Arms has other more ambitious projects planned for the future. They chose to start with this project because of its feasibility. All their projects have a single goal in mind. That goal is to make all gun control obsolete by using technology and disseminating information to the public before it can be shut down.

"I started with this because it is simpler than some of the more radical stuff I have planned later. The design and creations of this round were by no means simple, but the stuff we have planned will be harder. The goals of all the projects are to make it harder for the government to enforce gun control."

Atlas arms will also be the first third-party group to develop software for the Ghost Gunner 2 which I own and have reviewed in the past. The Ghost Gunner 2 is a product of Defense Distributed who rose to fame when they produced the Liberator. The Liberator was the first all 3D printed firearm.

Atlas Arms has started "Kick Starter like" campaign to raise $30,000 to complete the testing of the round. They will use all capital raised for future prototyping, body armor, ballistics gel, and other expenses. Most importantly the money will be used to keep the ATF, state and federal regulators at bay.

All donations are tax deductible. I donated for the simple reason I like the idea of taking a deduction on my taxes to make gun control obsolete.
