A “Lost Armalite” Resurfaces

I just received an email from a good friend alerting me to a shorty AR-18 that is up for auction but to fully appreciate it we need to check out an article in Small Arms Review titled “The Lost Armalites”

  1. Great article Rick. Likely many have not seen. I have that issue of SAR (somewhere). My ser. # 018 upper would have fit right in but I think it was used as a shop “mule” as it had the machined and plug welded wedge base and port cover added at some time. Always interesting history!
