ARMALITE’S NEW ADDITION TO THE AR-10® FAMILY ACCEPTS 3RD PARTY MAGS!
ArmaLite, Inc. is pleased to announce the AR-10A. 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.
We have tested, we recommend, and we ship polymer Magpul PMAG® 20LR magazines with our AR-10As. You can purchase extra PMAG®s from our website, www.armalite.com.
The first members of the AR-10A family are the AR-10 Super SASS and the AR-10 A4 Carbine. (The carbine is seen above.) Both were formally introduced to the public on Tuesday, January 17th at the 2012 SHOT Show in Las Vegas.
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 A10A4 carbine is both rugged and flexible. It is perfectly suited to both military and law enforcement duty. Why? Take a look INSIDE the A10A4 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 Spec Picatinny 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 A10A4 Carbine sets “The Armalite Standard of Excellence.”
