Armalite AR-180 by HOWA  Guns > Rifles > Armalite Rifles > Complete Rifles

Armalite AR-180 in 5.56mm NATO (.223 Rem) caliber. Made by HOWA of Japan, the rarest of the three manufacturers. The serial number is S10xxx.

This rifle is in perfect condition, bore is sharp and shiny, as new in every respect.

Rifle includes the original Armalite scope and scope-mount assembly. The scope assembly is a unique design snug-fit and it is quick attach and detach. The military iron sights are nicely visible and usable while the scope assembly is attached.

There is one original Armalite 20-round magazine and one polymer Thermold 30-round magazine; both of these magazines are made for Armalite, that is, they are not modified AR-15 mags, so they only fit this Armalite rifle. The Armalite 20-round magazine has the original Armalite logo on the bottom.

The Armalites made by Howa of Japan are the fewest in number of the three manufacturers, and is considered most desirable by collectors.

Historical note: The AR-180 is a semi-automatic version of the AR-18 design, which was later produced for the civilian market between 1969 and 1972 at Armalite's Costa Mesa (CA)manufacturing plant. The Costa Mesa AR-180s were one of the first military-type semi-automatic rifles to become widely available in the USA. Howa of Japan continued production of the AR-18/AR-180 from 1972 until 1974; Sterling in the UK produced the AR-18/AR-180 from 1976 to mid-1980s.
