NOTE: Since this video was recorded, Brownells has changed their plans, and will not be restocking BRN-10 barrels or parts once the current inventory is depleted.
Today I’m sitting down with Paul Levy from Brownells to talk about the development process for the BRN-10, their Retro copy of the original Armalite AR-10. Brownells is one of a small cadre of companies who have actually been able to successfully execute a project like this, and I wanted to pick Paul’s brain a bit about some of the challenges and decisions involved. Thanks to RIA for hosting us!
Only a small number of BRN-10 rifles are still available. If you want one, you can find them here:
The black version has a closed flash hider and fluted barrel, while the brown version has a heavier barrel and open flash hider.
