Although the semi-automatic M4-style carbine has dominated the AR market for many years, there is growing interest in ARs more akin to the original design. Why? The rifle-length AR may be your best bet when it comes to ballistics, reliability and durability.
Brownells has gone all the way back to the very beginning with the new BRN-PROTO, a rifle based as closely as possible on the prototype AR-15 Serial No. 1.
Brownells provides high-quality gunsmithing tools and firearm parts, and has tapped Satern Barrels to produce a premium barrel made from 416R stainless steel and chambered in 7.62x39 mm.
For the first time in Brownells history, the company is manufacturing complete guns of it's own in addition to selling tools, components and firearms made by other companies.
Whether you are looking for a one-stop-shopping solution or to cherry pick a few prime parts, Brownells is a great place to get started on your next home build dream AR project.
