Information

The AR-10 is the .308 variant of the AR-15, the civilian model of the M16. It uses a 5, 10, or 20-round box magazine and fires in semi-automatic operation (with the exception of the first prototype). The gun is rarely used in movies, though in Fight Club, Edward Norton says he will bring an Armalite AR-10 gas-operated semi-automatic rifle into work to threaten his boss. The gun is a well known target rifle and hunting rifle.

The Armalite AR-10 and variants can be seen in the following films, television series, video games, and anime used by the following actors:

Armalite AR-10

Original "Hollywood Humpback" Armalite AR-10 prototype - 7.62x51mm NATO
Armalite AR-10, "Sudanese" model - 7.62x51mm NATO
Armalite AR-10, "Transitional" model - 7.62x51mm NATO
Armalite AR-10, "Portuguese" model - 7.62x51mm NATO

The original version of the AR-10 was designed by Eugene Stoner and manufactured by Armalite (then a division of the Fairchild Aircraft Corporation) in 1956. Only four rifles were completed when it was submitted in the competition which aimed to replace the M1 Garand (which was eventually won by the M14). After this an additional 50 or so rifles were built at Armalite's Hollywood workshop (which are today referred to as "Hollywood Humpbacks" due to their manufacturing location and the shape of the carry handle) and given to travelling salesmen in order to pitch their new rifle to various countries.

In 1957 Armalite awarded a five year contract to the Dutch company Artillerie Inrichtingen (A.I.), who produced all subsequent examples of the 10,000 or so original AR-10 which were manufactured. There were three primary variants, being the "Sudanese", the "Transitional" and the "Portuguese". There were numerous other variants such as carbine or sniper weapons along with smaller contract weapons such as the "Guatemalen" which is similar to the "Sudanese" but with a perforated barrel shorud. All military variants of the rifle feature a shroud pinned to the forward section of the barrel, to which is welded differing bayonet lugs or grenade launching rings which varies with the variant. Civilian "Sporter" models were also produced which lack this shroud giving them the appearance of having a slimmer barrel, despite the fact that the actual barrel is the same.
