Over the years, the AR-10 market had expanded. I've seen various shops trying to tap into the .308 category, some with success, others with not so much.
The truth is, the AR-10 .308 market is still not set to mil-spec standards. Every manufacturer, including Moriarti Armaments, are manufacturing their .308 products to their own particular standard. Golden rule of thumb, so far we have low profile (to which Moriarti Arms falls under to) and high profile (to which Aero Precision falls under to) DPMS styles. And of course, it's up to you which profile you want to go with - non has more preference over the other. It all depends on you.
Most often then not, I get a question on the twist rate of AR-15 barrels (AR-10 is a completely different animal, and is not addressed here) and which twist should a client select.
Common twist rates of AR-15 barrels are: 1 and 7, 1 and 8, 1 and 9. So what's the most optimal? Answer is as always, depending on what bullet grain you prefer to shoot.
AR-15 barrels come in different lengths, materials, treatments, to name a few. Barrel rifling which measures the twist rate is another factor to consider when choosing a barrel for your AR-15 build. It impacts the spin on the bullet as it travels down the barrel. So for example, 1:8 twist means...
Yelp, 9/24/2015, Rc V - "I truthfully will not buy from anyone else unless the Jewel cannot supply what I want. So far she has bent over backwards to supply me with about ten guns in all different configuration(s) and her prices lead the industry along with her skills as a sales leader. Money spent with the Jewel will be well spent and service after the sale is where she excels and believe me service "after the sale is over" is the most rare talent of all leaders like Juliya! She's my East Coast girl and I intend on buying more and more and more from her till the SHTF. I am the most touchy buyer you can find and few can keep up with me...

The family of AR-15/M16 rifles and AR-15/M16 carbines, just like all other specimens of small arms, has its own advantages and disadvantages.

Depending on caliber and pressure developed in the chamber, for the manufacture of the barrel, one of the three common barrel steel is used. For trunks under the cartridge ring of ignition of the .22 caliber, a grade 1137 steel is used. For barrels chambered for calibers from .243 to .30-06, Cr-Mo 4140 steel is used. Match barrels today are made of a proprietary alloy grade 416R.
"Cutting" is the oldest method of manufacturing rifled barrels, which is done by the repeated passage of the cutter through the bore, wherein one pass is processed by only one thread. The grooves are made using a special tool, the cutting edge which moves...
Compatibility of AR-15 and AR-10 rifles
In this article, we will mention the compatibilities of AR-15 and AR-10 rifles, which of their parts are the same and what you can buy for both rifles.
It is worth mentioning that the AR-10 rifle was created as a model that was based on the AR-11 rifle. That means they have a lot in common:
Although the calibers differ from AR-15 (which is a 5.56 caliber) to AR-10 (which is a 7.62 caliber), you can use the same triggers. Although now days, more advance triggers are developed for 7.62x51. We offer few varieties for AR-10 triggers at Moriarti Armaments.
