Purchased a 20" AR-10A4 barrel from Armalite's closeout page. It came finally, and is stamped OBERLAND ARMS. It googled to a German arms manufacturer with a Ar-10 ?like? rifle. The rcvr looks non Armalite.

Any .02 on this? Going to be calling them tomorrow.

No listing for them in the Blue Book, they must be a parts maker only?

Be interesting to see what Armalite says, I didn't know they sold aftermarket stuff????

Oberland Arms is a German AR manufacture.

Most if not all of ther stuff is CNC billet not forgings.

Oberland Arms has imported AR10s into Germany in the past...

They currently make their own .308 AR version that takes G3 mags...

The barrel is either a leftover from when Armalite exported the guns to Oberland, or an overrun of parts made for some contract...

German civilian importers have had trouble getting US made AR receivers into Germany, so they started to make them themselves.. But they still often use US made parts for the rest...

yes, only barrels, uppers and lowers are german made. everything else on Oberland rifles is a mix of brands (mostly DPMS but also RRA, Armalite, Bushy).

Anyone know if it is directly inter-changable with the Armalite barrel in the Armalite rcvr? I have not had the factory T barrel removed.

Dont see why not.. All parts interchange.
