It looks like Chuck over at the GunLab has got his paws on an “In-The-White” AR-180 upper and if you know him like I do, that means we might be seeing some new uppers available soon.
I called him and we chatted for quite a while. He is hoping to make a run of these and offer them complete with trunion welded in but nothing on top. No dovetail, no rear sight. Perfect for those who want to build your own AR-180C flat top clone. He also is planning to make a run of flats.
I look forward to the day when the hobbyist like me, and many of you, can build our own AR-180 from scratch. That day may be closer than you think.
