Tactical Nostalgia

By A.J. George

Armalite AR-10 20-Inch Tactical Rifle  

July 8, 2016

By A.J. George

My new Armalite AR-10 Tactical Rifle is a direct gas impingement, .308 caliber, semi-automatic rifle with a 20-inch barrel and a rifle-length gas system. It has iron sights and is magazine fed, just like the original. That's about where the similarities end.
