Brownells has launched its own line of in-house “retro” reproductions of historically significant AR-15 and AR-10 rifles. The two BRN-10 variants, based on the AR-10 platform, are chambered in .308 Win./7.62 mm NATO. These models have the “trigger”-style charging handle located on the top of the receiver inside the carry handle along with the same lines and contours as the first production AR-10s from the 1950s. With receiver sets designed in conjunction with FM-Products, these rifles are compatible with standard DPMS/SR25 components including triggers, magazines, barrels, bolt carrier groups and furniture sets. The new BRN-10A has the same brown furniture found on early rifles, like the models issued by the Netherlands, while the BRN-10B is based on later models adopted by Cuba and other nations. brownells.com
