The AR-10A family of Armalite rifles 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 other magazines copied from them. The AR-10B family still accepts our proprietary steel magazines. Neither family of rifles will function correctly with the other alternate magazine.
The AR-10 Tactical Carbine is chambered in .308 and combines an innovative A2-style front sight with the A4 flat-top upper receiver that has gained popularity for its ability to accommodate sights, scopes, lights and other accessories. The new A2-style front sight was designed by Armalite’s engineers and is manufactured from forgings right here in our factory. The front sight is taller than traditional A2 front sights to account for differences in AR-15 and AR-10 receiver heights. This eliminates issues when zeroing when a carry handle or flip-up rear sight is used in combination with the A2-style front sight. The result is a spectacular Armalite .308 carbine ready for the toughest of jobs in law enforcement.
