These are the Official Armalite AR-10 Lower Receivers. AR-10 is the registered trademark owned by Armalite to prove it. No other firearm is an AR-10 no other manufacturers weapon should be referred to as an AR-10. Armalite is the only AR-10® period. Referring to any other brand 308 AR as an AR-10 only adds to the confusion of the platforms
Armalite AR-10 Lower Receivers!
Armalite AR-10 Series “A” Lower Receivers can utilize Magpul LR 308 PMAG Magazines as well as other DPMS LR-308 compatible magazines!
Armalite AR-10 Series “B” Lower Receivers utilize Armalite proprietary magazines originally derived from M14 magazines!
As if the 308 AR versus AR-10® platform debate isn’t confusing enough Armalite brings confusion to their own platform. Armalite AR-10 lowers are available in two styles. The original AR-10 A series and the AR-10 B series.
Why does Armalite offer two different AR-10 lowers? Original Armalite “waffle” magazines are actually the basis of DPMS LR-308 and KAC SR-25 magazines. During the 1994 Bill Clinton Assault Weapon Armalite decided to switch designs to the modified M14 magazines to ensure customers would have an ample supply of 308 magazines.
Armalite AR-10 Lowers
Armalite AR-10 lowers will not win any beauty contests but when you buy authentic AR 10 lowers you are buying battle tested hardware that has withstood the test of time. That’s more than most other 308 AR manufacturers can say. The Armalite AR-10 is the real deal.
