Building the AR180 in California

Reader Ron has been keeping me in the loop about his California legal build and it is now finished.

He made an epic post over on and I could not begin to do it justice.

Go check it out for yourself even if you have to register to see the pictures, it is worth the effort.

DCF 1.0


I can not say enough good things about the effort put into this fine firearm. One more saved from the lawmakers who would disarm us all.

More Extended Length Fire Control Pins

Reader Alex sent me a couple pics of his solution to deal with the fire control pins. He used .154″ anti walk pins he purchased off Ebay. These are designed for the AR15 but with the simple addition of longer screws, they work perfectly. He mentioned that the screw just bottoms out as they snug up against the outside of the receiver. That would keep the pins centered.


Fantastic idea. Thanks Alex.
