AR-24 - A New Chapter In The History Of Innovation
The AR-24 is a dramatic departure from ArmaLite’s tradition of new product development. Unlike ArmaLite’s usual emphasis on the latest materials and processes, the AR-24 emphasizes the best ordnance materials and the construction standards of an earlier era when only the highest quality was trusted to protect life and property.
In so doing, ArmaLite diverged from the industry trend to inexpensive materials and construction techniques. The frame, slide, and barrel, for instance, are all expensively machined from ordnance alloy steel forgings in one of the most modern firearm factories in the world. Machined surfaces are flat and straight, showing a finish devoid of machine marks that would please the most finicky gunsmith. The rifling is finely cut, rather than button rifled, to provide the ultimate engagement of bullet to bore. The pistol is then finished with military-grade mangenese phosphate and heat-cured epoxy for outstanding corrosion resistance.
The AR-24 is designed not only to be accurate and reliable, but beautiful as well. Great care has been taken to ensure that the fit of the pistol to the shooter’s hand, and the angle of the grip to the sights assures quick, natural aim and accuracy. Fast sighting even under low light conditions is assured by a three-dot sight system. The AR-24 is a handgun that anybody can be proud to own.
The new ArmaLite’s lines are reminiscent of a classic line extending from the elegant but expensive French M1935A designed by Charles Petter, and down through subsequent famed pistols to the AR-24. In terms of form and function it can be thought of as fitting between the SIG P-210(tm) and the CZ-75(tm). Extensive emphasis on design excellence and durability has driven this pistol from the ordinary to the extraordinary, and is reinforced in the artistry of the design.
The AR-24 is offered in both full-sized 15 shot and compact 14 shot (including 1 round in the chamber) steel-framed models, and in a special version supplied with finely checkered forestrap and backstrap and adjustable sights.
We believe that you’ll be as proud to own this pistol as we are to bring it to the market.
