My new AR-24.. a few pics
Viper1357  [Member]
I recently got this pistol (last week) ordered directly from Armalite from my friendly FFL dealer. I haven't had a chance to shoot it yet, but I had my camera out last night and took a few pics of it. It feels great in the hand, and I think it's really a nice looking well built pistol. I'm really looking forward to shooting it.

Good buy, what do you think of it so far in terms of feel and fit and finish. I heard they where great.

Haven't fired a round yet, but can't wait too. The fit, feel and finish is what I have always wanted in a production gun. The fit is perfect for my particular hand. The basic CZ style grip handle with improvements make this all steel gun mate with my hand, and the balance and natural pointing is hard to explain, but fun to experience.

The internal machining and close tolerance fitting is like that of a custom built pistol and you can really tell these are being produced on high quality modern machining centers. The exterior is what I expected, but no less impressive, The finished surfaces are clean and sharp where they can be, and rounded or radiused where they need to be.

It seems to go against conventional modern design to make an all steel pistol without all the visual (typically unnecessary) bells and whistles, but it feels lighter than it looks, and balances like a smaller pistol. If it shoot's like it looks, it may well become my favorite all around pistol.

Pictures don't do it justice. I know there are tons of styles and models of guns, but to look and handle this one, it really feels and looks like a high quality gun should.

Looking at yours it kinda looks like the Bren Ten note that this model is not sold in Turkey the versions they have there are different armalite wanted a different look, if you want to look at other models the companies name is Sarsilmaz they have an English site you can look at. There .45 caliber offering is the best looking CZ clone I have ever seen (used by Turkish specforces).

Thats because the Bren Ten was modeled after the CZ-75, the same as this gun.

How's the slide-to-frame fit? Is it tighter than a CZ? Is it like a Beretta? How much horizontal and vertical play in the rails?

Well??? Have you shot it yet? How about a report...

Err...ummm... Hey guys long time no see??

OK I'll come clean here, Sorry for the long delay, but I have had some real issues come up in my life since I've been involved in this AR-24 new gun thing.. I think I was more abitious about getting out to shoot it than my situation allowed.

-Aside from the fact that I'm still re-habing from my achilles tendon rupture and surgery since last November, My oldest daughter graduated HS, and between trying to plan for her grad party, pulling it off, (it was a lot of work up to the day and on the day) and the expense and time getting her ready for college this fall has been unreal in time and expense. We also had one of the worst sping/early summers (weather wise) here in MN on record.. creating all kinds of issues with home and yard, and we have an outdoor range locally that just opened early June. We lost our water heater to age $$, furnace electrical board went out in March, and just recently the dishwasher crapped out.. There is more, but you get the idea..
Then my youngest daughter just recently got her driver's permit, so I've been teaching her how to drive. All this and I've been suffering with some damn upper respiritory infection for 5 weeks this week, and all treatments so far have made me feel worse than better... The battle of health goes on..

So that's the main excuses I'm blaming my delays on at this time... I know, enough whining already..

Now that being said, I have still taken some time for my gun hobby. The good news is during this time I built my second AR15, and aquired a real SGS italian compensator for my Italian Beretta 92FS which I have wanted/searched/fought to get one for at least 5 years now. Those two projects cost me a couple of guns, (among other things) and I nearly sold of my AR24 to get the money.. GOOD NEWS is I didn't, and I still have it.

OK, now that I've bored you all to tears with my hum-drum lifes excuses, I can tell you that I am planning to take my Carry permit class within the next month, and it takes place at the outdoor range I mentioned. I will be bringing my AR24 (yes totally unfired or tested), my CZ75 SP01, and one of my stock Beretta 92FS pistols. They encourage multple guns if you have them for other class members to view handle and maybe even shoot to gain experience with different types of pistols. I have no problems sharing in a controlled environment where I feel my guns will be handled with care and respect.

So, with all this jabbering, the bottom line is my AR24 WILL BE SHOT BEFORE JULY 21ST, AND I WILL REPORT MY (OR OTHERS) EXPERIENCE WITH IT.. LOL...

Not shouting, just trying to make a firm commitment after delaying for so long..

Nice pics! I love my AR 24.

Right! Hope your life calms down, but you gotta make time for the range stuff ;)

Be warned that most people who shoot it will very much like it, so if you share it with people you might not get the trigger time with it that you want.

Good luck in the class!

Thanks for the well wishes homeyclause, and yes I was thinking the same thing regarding sharing the 24.. But in the same respect, what better way to test it's functioning and reliability than with a couple of newbs, or even another experienced shooter.. If it works well for them and me, I'm all over it, and if it does hiccup, I can hopefully see what issues it had with what shooter and try to make an assessment of what may been the problem ie; shooter, ammo, gun, ect..

Of course I am remaining optimistic that there will be no issues, but not foolish enough not to believe there can be..

Looks like next week I'll take my class, and will report the results of finally shooting or seeing it fired..
