Some cool AR history


Recommended Posts

A friend of mine had an AR-180 made by Sterling for a long time, until his stepson stole it. The statement in the article that AR-15 mags won't work in the rifle is not true, they just need a slight modification to work. If you look at the bottom photo in the article you can see a slot in the right side of the magazines that isn't present on the AR-15 mags. That is the only difference, it's where the AR-180 mag catch engages. My friend had a small aluminum jig that he layed on the AR-15 mags and used a Dremel tool to cut that slot in the AR-15 mags. Most of the mags he had for his AR-180 were modified AR-15 mags.
