Came out better than I imagined it would!! I hope you get BigRix to post your write up on AR180S.com. Everybody over there would be very interested.

Wow, just fantastic. You will have a special seat at that bar in heaven where Eugene Stoner and other Armalite Hollywood and Costa Mesa employees get together for a cold one every once in a while. Epic work & well done. Thanks for sharing.

Awesome work and I will most definitely point my readers to this thread.

I commend all my brothers behind enemy lines who jump through all the hoops to keep the Second Amendment alive and well.

Are you guys allowed to have AR180B's?

Interesting question!

It's not named AW (Armalite AR180 is) a AR180B is different. If I'm reading the Flowchart correctly. It would need a bullet button and the stock would need to be fixed. Or not able to fire in the folded position(over all length)

Some one please correct me if I'm wrong otherwise I'm ordering one!

Thumbs up

Excellent job, would take someone with knowledge in AR-180's to note
the differences from the original.
When I constructed mine, I went the direction on setup and
features, I would desire on this weapon platform today.

This is a guy that REALLY liked his AR-180. I liked mine too but I can't say I was heartbroken to see it go when I sold it.

It's crazy that someone made a receiver for what was a pretty obscure rifle.

The AR-180B was sold during the national "Assault Weapons" ban and does not have a folding stock or flash hider or bayonet lug.

It might need nothing more than a bullet button to be legal in CA.

I'm not sure, I live next door in AZ

In any case, I would STILL swap out the receiver for NoDakSpud's NDS-18s. That polymer receiver would have to go. Besides, with the NDS-18s you get all the advantages for AR15 replacement parts, trigger-sets, grips, magazines, etc.

Either way you would have to use a Bullet-Button - or go gripless with a fixed stock and muzzle brake (instead of the FH) to be "OK" in CA.

Gleam
as a long time homebuilder and as well known homebuilder, (Im found on roderus, gunco, weapons guild, weaponeer). I would like to tell you what a wonderful job you have done. In the past 6 months all I have been reading is everyone who slaps a fully assembled ar upper to a ffl lower is a builder. that sickens me to hear people defame folks like yourself a true master homebuilder, also the thought process you put into this project.

congrats on a wonderful build and modification. the only thing that bothered me was the cutting of the original upper receiver to fit the Nodak lower, but that is not your doing. I own several ar-180's and a blog member on ar-180 and retro section on ar-15.com

Thank you again. pleasure to see a true craftsman at work

OP - great work, what a masterpiece. I've always wanted an AR-180 after seeing one at a nearby LA pawnshop in the 80's, so I had to settle for a newer model so yes, we can get the AR-180B here in Kali. I picked this up from a fellow Calgunner over a year ago and PPT'd at Aegis in Burbank. Haven't seen too many for sale, but they're out there.

Started with the Stormwerk cocking handle mod and I'll eventually do the NoDak lower. It's a sweet shooter and surprisingly light, here it is next to one of my heavier 5.56 shooters...

Nice work OP. I especially got a kick out of the appearance of hastily done stick welds on the stock catch. First class!
