sweet gun. I think most people nowadays are just too into the modular nature of the AR platform to spend a lot of time on other types...

Really? Holy crap...that would be nice. I know the mags are the reason these babies don't sell well, but gosh, they shoot great with iron sites. Very smooth weapon.

My guess is that they're no longer in production.

I think I know what he means... I think he means the mags are not interchangeable with regular AR mags, so a lot of people will avoid the rifle.

I think 90% or more of the shooters on here only use their rifles for target shooting or hunting so I doubt that is a major factor. I think it's just that they are unusual and not that sexy compared to a pimped up AR...

They aren't more popular cause they are ugly as shit. But very very fun to shoot, I'll give them that.

Here is my original AR180 with my 180B:

Never personally owned one, but a buddy had one, and I'll attest to them shooting smooth! Nice pickup, just out curiousity, did you get a good deal??

Link Posted: 11/2/2009 3:42:12 PM EST
I thought you could modify AR-15 mags to fit by cutting a notch somewhere...

Other than that, awesome score! I'd love to have one, but I'm not interested in paying $900 for the one I saw at the gun show a few back.

Yes..I got a great deal, $450 with 2 mags, it may have had 100 rounds through it, bolt face looks untouched. I like the gas piston system...they shoulda put it on the AR15. Just a nice sweet shooter..great balance, it's got a FNC "feel" to it.

Is that thing set up for a lefty?

Looks like the mag catch is on the right, is the button on the left?

Does it accept AR-15 mags?

Awesome! Congrats NG!

No, righty.

Mag catch has to catch a cut-out in the mag so AR mags are a problem unless they are modified to fit.
Link Posted: 11/3/2009 9:40:43 AM EST



excellent weapon. the only real downside to them is the flimsy stock attachment that finds itself broken sometimes.

i really like them though, and have thought that a transferable 180 with a 10"barrel would be what's up.

Gotcha.

So does it have a long-stroke piston or a shorty?

I literally know nothing about these.

Not my style, but new guns are always fun.

Sort of like an AK..sort of. Easy to clean so far, comes apart in seconds...pretty good over-all design. Flimsy pieces that have been mentioned, but it feels great..very nice balance. It was worth the money over getting another AK variant. Shoots straight and very little recoil...just a fun gun that you could go plink all day..if the ammo were cheap.
