Im about to purchase an american 180, and shooting it last night i noticed that it did not have a select fire, it only had full auto and safety. i asked the previous owner about it and he stated that he didnt believe they came with such an option, Is there a way to add a selector to one?

It is a "B" series gun, meaning it was manufactured in SLC, Utah of Austrian parts.. if that matters..

Look for a little pin sticking out of the receiver (like in the pic below)  It's the selector...

If there's no pin sticking out on either side of the receiver, then it might be a Connecticut gun, where "full-auto only" is the rule.  If so, you can restore the selector by installing one of the ones pictured above.  Joeblack makes very good ones and they don't cost much.

Joe does some sweet work.  

I just got some really cool thread adaptors and a thread protector made.  Plus my third .22lr loader.

hmm.. i probably should order one, if they are really that much better..
Id rather not wait till mine busts..
Also his speed loader appears to be an improvement over the one im using now..
Does anyone know his prices?

I have to say, the American 180 is the most fun you can have with your pants on.

One more place you can try for parts and service is Val Cooper.  His info can be found at www.american180.com.  Sooner or later, every American 180 owner buys something from Val.

haha, ive already found Val.. previous owner told me that is the first place i should look for anything.. and usually the only place...

Pardon the silly question, but why would anyone need semi- on a F/A 180?  After all, the world is full of semi-auto .22s.  

For that matter, I can't remember the last time I shot any subgun in semi.
