Check it out! If you know what it is, you know what it could have been- arguably what should have been, some may say.

Picked it up for a good deal and I'm glad to have this little piece of history in the safe.

Hope you enjoy.

Very cool!
It seems there was one of those on every table at the Reno gun show.
Those are a lot like the Robinson M96 rifles.
If I'm not mistaken, I seem to remember a Belt-fed mod you can do on these.

The rifle that almost replaced the m 16. I think m96 is a copy of the armalite 180.

Very ignorant question here, sorry about that.

But does this sexy piece still require a bullet button and 10 round mags?

Pretty sure that's an AR180.

It is.
If you want something close to it, get the Robinson m96.
I had one and foolishly sold it:(

Actually, the Robinson M96 was based on the Stoner 63 - but in looks only. I hear none of the parts are interchangeable. I never saw the belt conversion for the M96 but I did see the bren conv. with the offset sights.

Beautiful rifle - For the longest time (more than 25 years ago) a pawn shop in Highland Park (Los Angeles) had one hanging on the wall....I always thought the $300 he was asking was too much (!!!). Its ironic that some were built in Hollywood, CA.

Your right, I'm slipping. I got the Stoner and armalite mixed up.
