Ever think to yourself, “I didn’t even know I needed this, but I need two?” Well get your credit card out. Monarch Arms is now taking pre-orders for AR-10 receiver sets that accept HK G3 magazines. For the very fair price of $550 you can have a very unique and aesthetically pleasing AR0-10.
There is something about the look of the G3 magazines that I like, plus they can be purchased at very reasonable prices. The top rifle pictured above just speaks to me. One along those lines may be my next build.
From Monarch Arm’s website.
The all new Monarch Arms ARG3 receivers combine the best of new and old styling and functionality. The receivers are the ONLY current production receivers that accept HKG3 style mags as used commonly in the HKG3/HK91/PTR rifles (CETME MAGS MAY REQUIRE SOME MODIFICATIONS TO WORK).
The receivers are:
made from 7075 T6 grade aluminum
made in the USA
compatible with standard DPMS style parts
features a DPMS HIGH handguard compatible rail height
DO NOT feature a last round bolt hold open (G3 mag followers do not allow this feature)
utilize a proprietary upper/lower combo that only work together!
are hard coat type 3 anodized black
How well will 6.5 CM feed from G3 magazines? We’ll find out.
