THE ARMALITE AR-10

You have no doubt arrived at this page looking for information on buying an AR-10, building an AR-10 or perhaps upgrading an AR-10 that you already own. If that is the case you have come to the right place. If your interest lies with the only true AR10 the Armalite AR-10 you have also come to the right place.

When I first started this site back in 2006 the landscape for the .308 AR platform was much different. There was a few brands that were “DPMS, SR25, M110 Compatible”, a few mongrel designs and the genuine Armalite AR-10. Today it’s an entirely different world. There are countless DPMS compatible manufacturers, there is also the DPMS GII platform and of course the Armalite AR-10. This causes a lot of confusion with current and prospective 308AR and AR-10 owners. To make matters worse Armalite now offers two variations of the AR-10, the AR-10 type “A” and the AR-10 type “B”. Read about those differences here.

ARMALITE AR-10 MODEL VARIATIONS: AR-10 SERIES A, AR-10 SERIES B

The most critical points to know are. The type “A” and “B” upper and lower receivers are not interchangeable. You must match the series type. Another critical point is with AR-10 magazines. The two different lower receivers use two different magazines. Expand the toggle below and read “Which Armalite AR-10 Uses Magpul PMAG 10 Magazines” to understand the magazine differences. To see a definitive visual comparison of the AR-10 lowers visit this page.

The purpose of this page is to serve as a reference for shooters looking to research the Armalite AR-10 rifles. No other brand will be covered here. The images and “Learn More” buttons will take you to dealers who stock AR-10 hardware. Currently the best sources are Armalite, Rainier Arms and Eurooptic. AR-10 lower receivers are rarely in stock long so if you see availability act accordingly.
