Nope. The A1 and A2 are both built into the upper receiver.

The A3 is removable and the A4 is a flat top.

Yes it can.
Use a hacksaw and a grinder.
This is a non-reversible alteration.

It was done a lot before flat top receivers were more available to the civilian market...cut off the handle, and bolt on or weld on a piece of rail...

But honestly, it'll be easier and cheaper to just swap out the receivers...can always find someone looking to buy a complete A2 receiver...

No need to buy a new AR, just get a new upper.
