ARMALITE’S NEW ADDITION TO THE AR-10® FAMILY ACCEPTS 3RD PARTY MAGS!
Armalite is pleased to announce the AR-10ATM. This new option of the famous AR-10® will accept traditional Armalite “waffle” magazines and some 3rd party magazines.
Armalite customers asked for a choice, and that’s just what we’ve provided.
The AR-10A family of Armalite firearms is functionally identical to our AR-10B family. Operation, controls, and maintenance are the same. However, the AR-10A family is designed to accept early Armalite AR-10 “Waffle” magazines and good quality magazines copied from them, instead of Armalite’s proprietary steel magazines that are used in our AR-10B family. Neither family of firearms will function correctly with the other family’s magazines.
You can purchase extra PMAG®s from our website, www.armalite.com.
For further information on the new AR-10A, see Armalite technical note 101:
Technical Note 101: Visual Differences Among M15, AR-10B, and AR-10A Components
The new AR-10A4TM carbine is both rugged and flexible. It is perfectly suited to both military and law enforcement duty. Why? Take a look INSIDE the AR-10A4 carbine THAT’S where it counts. It is a gas operated, magazine fed, semiautomatic produced to provide a level of accuracy, dependability, and durability that is not found in other rifles of similar design. This firearm provides a perfect platform for all sighting options with its forged flat-top receiver with MIL-STD 1913 rail and forward assist.
Its aircraft-grade forgings have NO die-cast or extruded parts in the receivers. The interior surfaces of the upper receivers are hard coat anodized and dry film lube per military spec. In fact, ALL aluminum parts are hard coat anodized per military spec.
Sound good for YOUR mission? It should, because the AR-10A4 carbine sets “The Armalite Standard of Excellence.”
