An excellent example of an original and very scarce fully-automatic Armalite AR-18 rifle as manufactured by Armalite in Costa Mesa, California. A contemporary alternative to the M16, the AR-18 was designed to be a simple to produce rifle, using a short stroke piston system and stamped receiver components. Adjustable pin and peep sights, with a 3-pring flash hider, bayonet lug, makers marks on the upper receiver, and the ambidextrous three position selector on the lower. Ribbed and vented hand guard, with an “AR-18/ ArmaLite” marked pistol grip, side folding buttstock, and 1 extra magazine. Also equipped with an ArmaLite 2.75x20mm scope.
