NRA Gun of the Week: Brownells BRN-10A Rifle

It was at SHOT Show 2019 when Brownells unveiled Retro Rifles, a tribute to Eugene Stoner and the renowned rifles he created, which leads us to this review of the BRN-10A. Built with modern materials, on modern machines, the BRN-10A is an authentic recreation of the original AR-10 design featuring polymer furniture colored brown to mimic the original fiberglass used. From the bolt carrier group to the charging and carry handles, all parts included are as close to the original as possible while providing interchangeability with some modern AR-10 components. To learn more, watch American Rifleman’s Mark Keefe as he examines a faithful copy of that first AR-10 designed by Stoner in this NRA Gun of the Week video.
