Armalite rifles for sale at Omaha Outdoors represent a decades-long commitment to manufacturing excellence and innovative design. While they're best known for their Armalite M-15 and AR-10 semi-auto rifles and especially their National Match line of incredibly accurate rifles, they have also received accolades for their bolt action long range rifles, especially the AR-30 .338 Lapua target rifle and the heavy hitter AR-50 in the legendary 50 BMG cartridge. Let's run down their products and help you figure out which one is right for your needs.
Not everyone is aware that the AR-15 or M16 rifle was actually developed after the AR-10, a .308 caliber semi-auto rifle which was clearly superior to the M14 but not selected as the Army's new rifle for reasons known only to the Army at the time. Armalite carries on the tradition of those first AR-10s with their modern interpretations, available in configurations from basic with polymer furniture and no sights, perfect as a blank slate for a custom build, to full-on competition rifles tricked out with lightweight handguard rails, muzzle brakes, and highly adjustable stocks. Complete uppers are available if you already have an Armalite compatible AR-10 lower. Note that the AR-10 uses different 308 magazines than the DPMS LR-308 and KAC SR-25.
After the AR-10 came the AR-15, and similarly comes the Armalite M-15 and its low-cost brother, the Eagle-15. Like the heavyweight offerings, the M-15 is available in many styles and configurations from mild to wild. These lightweight rifles have all the features you seek in expensive custom rifles, but carry both the famous Armalite name and a price tag that beats just about everyone. As with the AR-10, complete uppers are available.
If you're looking to make a statement at the range, a 50 cal rifle is an excellent way to do it. Armalite's bolt action 50 BMG rifle is a match-grade, competition-ready rifle effective to distances past a mile. It has a massive muzzle brake to tame the recoil of the cartridge and a Picatinny rail atop the receiver for mounting your long-range scope. If you want to shoot just as far (and maybe a little farther) but don't need the recoil or ammunition cost of the .50 BMG, the AR-30 in 338 Lapua is just what you need. It has an extended length Picatinny rail that's perfect for mounting NVGs or thermals along with your long-range optic. 338 Lapua is an excellent alternative to 50 BMG because it offers excellent external ballistics but still packs a massive punch even a mile away. If you've been shooting 6.5 Creedmoor, .308 Win, or .300 Win Mag and have reached the limit of those cartridges' effective range or ability to buck wind, step up to 338LM and don't look back.
