I've been looking and looking for a Armorer's Manual for the AR10 but, all I can find is a basic owner's manual. I need to know how to break it down to parade rest. I figure it might be similar to an AR15 but, know not for sure. Specially which way the barrel nut comes off CCW or CW. Anyone know where or if there is an Armorer's Manual like you can find for the AR15?

Have you tried Armalite themselves? Or perhaps Brownells?

Forgive me for asking, but Armalite has a lifetime warranty, why do you want to break it down to the bare frame?

The AR10 breaks down exactly the same as an AR15. Biggest difference is that the bolt and carrier are much larger. The trigger group are all the same as a normal AR15.

Edited to point out that the firing pin has a spring on it to prevent the rifle from slam firing.

The reason I want to know is that I prefer to do my own work on a rifle plus, I like having the knowledge. But, no, I haven't tried Armalite or Brownell's yet but, intend to. Was hoping someone knew where I could find one.

Armalite had great technical support the few times that I've called them. Giv'em a call.
