Brownells has announced that its BRN-10, a replica of the original .308 rifle designed by Eugene Stoner in the ’50s, is now shipping.

Available in two variants, the BRN-10A and BRN-10B, these models were built in partnership with FM Products and are machined from a 7075 T6 aluminum billet. In addition, they boast a “trigger”-style charging handle under the carry handle. Basically, all the bells and whistles of Stoner’s original can be found on these retro guns, with zero surplus parts present.

“Inspired by the original Dutch AR-10 Models, the Brownells BRN-10 Rifles allow the firearms enthusiast to own a faithful recreation, at a fraction of the price for an original AR-10,” said Brownells Director of Product Management Paul Levy. “The receivers, barrel charging handle, bolt carrier group, furniture, flash hider, front sight base and even small components were all styled to honor the original design. Using modern production methods, the BRN-10 is easily capable of engaging targets accurately at long distances.”

The BRN-10A is inspired by the earliest rifles. It has an open 3-prong Dutch-style flash hider; heavy fluting barrel under the handguard; and brown furniture that resembles the original fiberglass. The BRN-10B, meanwhile, gets its inspiration from later export rifles. It features a closed-prong, Portuguese-type flash hider; black furniture; and a lightweight barrel.

Both BRN-10 models accept standard DPMS/SR25 triggers, mags, barrels, BCGs, muzzle devices, buttstocks, pistol grips, handguards and buffer assemblies.

See the features for each model below, along with a video.
