The entire receiver group of the AR-7 is used as the basis for the Rebel Hoth pistol. Along with a "shortened" barrel, with the knurled nut. The muzzle is a fin from a British mortar round.Holy cow.. I have one of these AR-7s in my gun safe. Got it many years ago when I was back in college.
What parts of it were used in the rebel pistol?? I never use the thing anymore, maybe its time to dust it off...
I picked up a vintage AR7 (with the correct barrel nut ) just before I fled the States. I'll see if I can get my friend Bill to throw RTV on it. He has the right mortar on hand, too (just one of the many projects I never got around to finishing, sigh).
I think a while back Bobadebt said the newer versions have different knurling around the barrel where it attaches to the receiver.Tony,
i have a friend that had a real one, i could check.
also they are still being sold by Uncle Henry firearms,
