CVA’s Cascade marks a big first for a firm that got its start selling DIY blackpowder rifle and pistol kits.
Barrett’s REC10 direct-impingement, semi-automatic rifle chambered in .308 Win. has been spoken of in hushed tones for a couple of years, but the platform which has already been accepted by the U.S. military as a medium-caliber, long-range rifle is officially here, and available for commercial sale.
Few firearm designs of the 20th century were as influential as the AR-10. Designed by the late Eugene Stoner in the mid-1950s, this 7.62x51 mm battle rifle helped spawn the entire AR series—arguably the most successful, and certainly the most prolifically imitated, long gun of the modern era.
