AR180 Rifle: Crude Gun, Incredible Legacy

    The Armalite AR18 and its civilian counterpart (the AR180) were marketed as affordable alternatives to more expensive designs of the period. While the rifle failed to take off or find a lucrative military contract, the gas system (or elements of it) has been used in many different designs.
    In this video we do some shooting with the rifle and take a look at what it made its gas system so enviable.
