Armalite is introducing their new AR-10A rifles at SHOT. The rifles build on the gunmaker’s experience with the AR-10 system, allowing them to accept standard magazines (instead of only the proprietary Armalite magazines). We’ve already posted quite a bit of information about these rifles. This is the first time I’ve been able to fire one. The one I demoed seemed to be recoiling to the right quite a bit; I’m not sure what that’s all about. The shots themselves were dead on. Well, as dead on as improperly installed sights can be (ArmaLite brought the wrong ones to the show). Recoil was surprisingly light for .308. That’s a very good thing indeed.
