The Largely Forgotten AR-18 Was Not a Stoner Design (Entirely)

An early model AR18

Before discussing the Armalite AR18 design, let’s first look get some backstory. There are four characters that can evoke emotion in opponents of the Second Amendment: “AR-15.” It is perhaps the most misunderstood product of the 20th century, and gun control advocates have vilified the semi-automatic rifle by spreading misinformation and outright lies. The two letters “AR” — which are often erroneously described to stand for “assault rifle” — has become the scapegoat in every tragic mass shooting, while AR has also replaced “Uzi” or “AK-47” as the catch-all term to describe a modern semi-automatic rifle.
