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.
I believe there is a need for law enforcement officers, especially for tactical personnel, to kick things up a notch and use heavier caliber carbines as patrol rifles and entry guns.
ArmaLite has long been known for its innovative and trendsetting rifle designs. Now, for the first time in its storied existence, there is a pistol that wears the ArmaLite name.
ArmaLite introduced its latest version of the AR-180 about two years ago, but the design and the AR-180 designation date to the 1960s. There were very good reasons to update it.
