Cal. 5.56mm. S# S18195. Bbl. length 18". Original ArmaLite AR-18 was designed in 1963 in CA. as a potential alternative for the U.S. military. When it started to look as though it would not be adopted as a standard service rifle, production was licensed to Howa Machinery Co. in Japan where they began production in 1967. Because military sales to U.S. were effected by American-Japanese treaty agreements that forbid Japan in selling to arms to "belligerent nations", it was determined rifles could not be sold to the U.S. due to our involvement in Vietnam. In 1974 ArmaLite & Sterling Ltd. in England signed a production agreement to manufacture both the AR-18 & the AR-180 (the semi automatic commercial version) & started manufacturing rifles in 1975. This particular example was mfg. for ArmaLite Inc. in Costa Mesa, CA. by Sterling in England under ArmaLite patents. It is a gas operated piston driven semi auto rifle w/ a left side folding stock. Front sight is an elevation adj. protected post. Rear sight is a windage adj. dual aperture peep sight. Simmons 6.5-20x44mm wide angle scope is mounted on the unique Armalite base w/ a single ring. The rifle is charged by a reciprocating handle on the right side of the rifle. Ambidextrous safety selector controls. Black plastic furniture, it has the proper muzzle brake & the bayonet lug attached w/ black canvas sling. MAGS: 1 factory 20 rd. ArmaLite AR-18. CONDITION: bluing is complete on all exposed metal surfaces w/ minor scratches in areas of moving parts such as safety selector. Stock locks tightly in open & closed positions. Bbl. is frosted w/ worn rifling & displays light pitting towards muzzle. All aspects of operating system appear to function correctly when cycled by hand w/ the exception of the bolt hold open device which no longer functions to full capacity. (19-4805/JZ). MODERN. $900-1,400.
