The article is part on of two and has a lot of neat early armalite product pics and information. Any and every Retro fan will want to check it out.

Great Article! It makes me want to enter the dark world of the AR-10...

I know. I'm still salivating over 'OL Gunners recent post of that Portugese AR-10. Always wanted one. Think I could trade my Galil .308 ARM for one? The rub would of course be the condition of the 10. As all of them are surplus parts guns. Maybe a modern day AR-10B would suffice.

Is this part 2? I picked up a Small Arms Review a couple of weeks ago and I think it had part 1. EXCELLENT pictures, and fascinating information. Thanks for reminding me!

I particularly liked the handguards on the AR-16...

I noticed that the AR10B is no longer listed on Armalite's site. Are they gone forever?

Apparently at least for the time being. In response to a question regarding the handguards, I got an e-mail from them saying the AR-10B's didn't sell as well as expected, and not to expect them to stock them again. A friend of mine called them, and they told him they may make another limited run. I don't know if they meant the rifles or the handguards. I have mixed feelings about it...the AR-10B is a poor substitute for the Portuguese AR-10 I've wanted for years, but it is cool that Armalite saw fit to try to do a retro rifle.
