Reader Alex sent me this link. Jump to the 22:03 mark to see the AR18S.
You can definitely see the unique flash hider on this gun. If you need one for your shorty project head over to AR180Parts.com. I just got a batch back from John Thomas at Retro Arms Works and they are ready to ship.
I have moved my store to a seperate web site AR180Parts.com.
This has allowed me to add additional security and to accept online payments in the form of BitCoin. I am working on a solution for those wanting to mail payments but for now you can contact me through the new site and we can arrange payment and work out the details. I will be adding another category with used surplus parts as time allows. Thank you for your patience.
The best part is you can now use this to put yourself on a mailing list when the next batch of Fusion “Paperweights” is ready to ship. I have had multiple emails about this and it took me awhile to come up with a solution.
This might be of interest to those of you in ban states but don’t overlook it for those who don’t. It can be rescued!
It appears to have had the folding stock “Fixed” in place and the retention stud removed. The stock is also at a strange angle. The lower could be replaced (I know a guy who has a stripped Sterling lower 😉 and the only hang up would be if the latch plate on the butt stock is missing.
I will probably throw up a bid just to strip it for parts. Of course if I win I will probably try and fix it up as I am a sucker for strays that need a good home.
If you end up with it let me know if you need any parts, I can help with that.
Well at least a few of them. According to the accepted timeline (Click Here) the first 12 AR-180 rifles were made in July 1969. 50 years ago this month.
As time marches on more and more will become Curio & Relics. Time to get your C & R FFL so we can start selling and trading these among each other. Best part, they can be mailed directly to your house!
The real question is, how do we get those who are selling them to agree they now fall under the C & R classification and it would be perfectly legal to ship them to me?
One thing is for sure, in 3 years all Costa Mesa AR-180’s will qualify for C & R status.
I welcome you comments on this. What do you think?
