Absolutely outstanding American Arms M2 American 180 with typical markings on underside of receiver. Primarily made of aluminum with horizontal foregrip, ribbed barrel, and includes original instruction manual, one pan magazine with winder/driver and documented and signed digital readout of cyclic rate dated 11/9/2010 using Federal Lightning ammunition with this exact gun identified by serial number (talk about having foresight!). This is one of two American 180 machine guns the same consignor owns, and obviously this is the one he kept in near mint condition while he fired the other for recreation. The American 180 is considered by many to be one of the best of the .22 machine guns. This cataloger can attest that these are loads of fun to shoot, and very popular guns. Magazine system utilizes a hand-wound spring device to rotate the drum on a steel plate which brings the rounds within the mag in-line to feed into the gun. CONDITION: Overall appearance and finish is near excellent original deep lustrous blued finish on barrel with black anodization on aluminum parts. If it were not for the documentation one might think this gun was unfired. Wood is near excellent. Mechanics are crisp. Bore is near excellent, shiny and bright. Original steel magazine near excellent. This is a select-fire machine gun. It would be pretty difficult to improve on the condition of this specimen for fit, finish and overall attractiveness. For those of you with this model gun, try “Federal Lightnings” in your gun. THIS IS A NATIONAL FIREARMS ACT ITEM AND REQUIRES BATF APPROVAL PRIOR TO TRANSFER. THIS ITEM IS FULLY TRANSFERABLE ON AN ATF FORM 3 OR 4. JWK 2019-10-148
