    You learn somehting new every day .. Lessons on AR mags

    Heres one if you ever find a AR mags with mag cuts on both sides and wonder why that is .. Well I can answer that for you .. It is due to this gun Armalite_AR180_FoldingStock.jpg

    The AR180 or ar18 ... It takes normal AR mags buuut they have to be cut on the oppiste side of the normal AR catch due to the mag well .. Plus they might have to be sanded to fit

    For some thank god good reason a handful of companies are still making mags that are dual cut ... So if you ever find some mags or one marked Armailight or Sterling England you know what they are ... The good news is that most AR18 mags esp org factory ones will work in both a AR or ar180 ...

    Weirder still are some of the ramlines made years ago that fit the AR18 and the mini 14


    And if you do find any let me know I am looking for some Factory org mags are pretty rare

    can current GI mags be modified? cutting the square hole would just be a small drill-and dremel job.
    Flaring the inside might be a trick, but probably do-able?

    Yeah they can be .. Most ar18 mags are that moddy AR15 mags .. Just dremiled etc .. Though some internal work may be needed for the bolt hold open and some fit better then others and some need to be sanded down to work.. C mags seem to fit nice as do Colts

    Double piston gas gun ... Great history it was the rifle of the Irish trouble too ... The song my little Armlight came from it

    Stoner started the gun off .. Basically it is a cheper version of the m16 without violating any colt copy rights

    Neat gun ... Has a very different rail mount on top for a scope ...

    They made a B model a few years back that took AR15 mags but the gun imop sucked .. It was a 94 ban legal gun and had a fixed stock and weled on muzzle brake ... Not worth my time


    Best part is the org one was made in the UK and imported though CA wont ever see that again .... They also made them in Japan and other places
