What kind of malfunctions are you experiencing?

the rounds are impacting just below the feed ramp. I have tried to adjust the mag catch, but this has not helped.

I asume these are USGI mags?

Did you contact Armalite about the problem to see what they thought?

Where in VA are you at, maybe if you are close enough I could get a close up look at the problem?

No problems here. As a matter of fact, the 180B feeds well with mags that my ARs don't like.

Mine feeds great. They send the rifles out with a commercial mag that seems to feed high. Maybe it worked with that mag but has trouble with GI. Haven't heard of this before.

Mine feeds just fine. Emptied a 20 round mag today in about 8 seconds. I have rapid fired several different 30 round mags, no problems.

I shot 100 rounds through mine today, only had 2 FTF. The 2 FTFs were the last round in two different Colt 20 round mags, no other problems.

Did not get a chance to shoot it yet, but am going Sunday. I was really impressed with the local dealer giving me the only other one he had. He even asked me what I saw them going for at the gunshow and matched their price.

Ok I do buy guns from him on a regular bases.
Anybody out there know when the scope mount will be available? I have got a Holo Sight with the plus two adaptor that would be great for this gun.
