An AR where the receiver extension isn't necessary, is side charging, and doesn't cost three arms and two legs like the MCX.

So where do I sign up?
You forgot:

Isn’t being beta tested.
No running design changes
Spare parts are available

:D

( digging on Sig....could be the same witth the Brownells gun:p)

I saw this the other day and got kind of excited. I have always wanted an AR180, being able to stick it on a standard lower is even better. I hope this isn’t just a “SHOT show flash in the pan.”

Hey now... Sig has a name at least!
My MCX was more than worth my two arms and two legs. The guy that donated the other arm may not be so happy.
But I'm a broke clown! Price matters, and for 5.56 I won't spend more than what a Bren costs.

I got bit twice....556 that was a lemon then an MCX that I couldnt get spare parts for...then they come out with a "gen2"...I'm over Sig, which sucks because I liked both rifles.

"Far more noticeable to the shooter is the charging handle located on the forward LEFT side of the receiver.":oops:
Upon viewing the photos I find some points in their description amusing. In Marine boot camp we were taught a different understanding of left and right.:rolleyes:

Thats funny.....I have an extra Manticore triangle stock and was looking for AR thread adapters last nite...:D
Triangle stock is fine.

But what about a Galil stock? Just thinking of ways to bother the folks at barfcom. Hell, I might get an underfolder stock and see if I can work some bubba magic. :rolleyes:

You might be able to pin a Galil stock in an AR lower....

Ive seen plugs with pic rail, could do that with a Sig MCX stock
 
Not sure if this has been posted yet, but brownells is releasing a modern AR 180 upper, basically an AR 18 that mounts to a standard lower. Price is really not that bad either.

Ordered one about 2 weeks ago. Got a notice from Brownell's that they will probably ship by the end of this month.
 
Would you mind doing a review when you get it?
Contemplating my next build around this upper:)
Sure. Finishing up the lower this week. Didn't go with the folding stock as it would have made it just too expensive. Yup, when it arrives I'll get pictures out.

That's awesome, looking forward to hearing how it runs.

I am hoping they will eventually do a 10.5 or 11.5 so I can put it on a folding brace lower.
