Introduction to AR-10 Rifles [Infographic]

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.

I’ve got your AR-10 20” in a .308. It’s not picking up the next round. I’m thinking it the buffer tube spring and weight. What buffer set do you suggest?

If the BCG is not going back far enough to pick up the next round, the upper may be under gassed (short stroking). If you put 1 round in the magazine, load it, and fire it, does the bolt hold open like it should? IF not that is the sure sign of under gassing and they would need to send it in for warranty to handle. Hope you found this helpful .
