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.

Technical Note 101: Visual Differences Among M15, AR-10B, and AR-10A Components
The Armalite AR-10A SuperSASS™ rifle looks sharp. It’s an eye-catcher. But it’s what’s INSIDE the SuperSASS that counts. 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 per military spec. In fact, ALL aluminum parts are hard coat anodized per military spec. SuperSASS barrels are ceramic coated stainless steel match. The patented bolt assembly is stronger than those found in similar firearms. The trigger is a finely tuned Armalite National Match. With all this “inside information,” there’s no doubting “The Armalite Standard of Excellence.”
