Class 3 Weapons: American 180 Submachine Gun (Pre-May)
Extremely unique in its capacity and design, the American 180 is a true reflection of U.S. ingenuity. Capable of an astounding 1200 rounds per minute when using the standard .22LR ammunition, the American 180 also has a capacity of up to 275 rounds. Unlike other SMG’s, which may sacrifice accuracy for rate of fire, because the American 180 uses the .22LR, it has significantly less recoil, acute accuracy, and a lower change of over-penetration and ricochets. Some of the other specifications of the American 180 include:
- Caliber: 22LR
- Magazine Capacities: 165, 177, 220, or 275 rounds
- Weight When Empty: 2.6kg
- Weight When Loaded: 4.5kg (with 176-round mag)

- Effective Range: 100m
Initially produced by an American company in Austria, the American 180 was soon made by American Arms International and ILARCO (Illinois Arms Company Inc.). Today, the American 180 remains as one of the most distinctive and beloved submachine guns around.
