There's a lot of excitement and confusion on AR-10s, the big brother of America's favorite semi-auto sporting rifle (AR-15s). Because AR-10s were not adopted by the military when they were first created in 1956, the design was not standardized like mil-spec AR15s and has has mostly spilt into 2 commercial varients (DPMS/LR 308 and Amalite AR10). To simplify the differences between AR 10s and AR 15s we created an infographic that explains the history, differences, and most common calibers of AR-10 rifles.
We hope you enjoyed learning about AR-10s! Check out our blog about AR 10 calibers to learn which one would be best for your needs. Comment a topic you'd like us to cover in an infographic in the future. We model our AR-10 rifles and parts after DPMS Gen-1 Low Profile; make sure to check out our selection of AR10 Rifles, AR10 Uppers, AR10 Barrels, and AR10 bolt carrier groups.
