Words By: Wally F.          Photos By: Wally F.

 

……….North Sylva has been in the Canadian firearms scene for over 60 years. It’s said that one in five firearms sold in Canada are imported by them.

……….In America in late 1960’s and early 1970’s the Armalite AR-18 design was powered off of a short-stroke gas piston system that allowed for a very compact build that had recoil springs in the receiver instead of in the butt stock. This allowed for folding stocks to shorten it’s overall length but still function properly. In 2003 ArmaLite introduced a model featuring a polymer lower receiver, this rifle the AR-180-B, accepted AR-15 trigger groups, magazine releases, and magazines.
