    Aluminum Forgings made specifically for us. Basically NEA has become a large scale custom operation as we have to make or have made everything we use.
    Next month we roll out or own polymer line, starting with our own minimalist sop mod style stock.

    Here I got some questions.


    The AR10 design came before the AR15.

    The original AR10 designed by Armalite was produced by Artillerie Inrichtingen (excluding early prototypes and the limited "Hollywood" production). A.I. while producing the rifles also came up with various product improvements and upgraded the design throughout it's limited service/production life. When people think AR10 and see old pictures of wooden AR pattern rifles from the 1950's, you're likely seeing the Dutch Artillerie Inrichtingen version of the AR10.

    What follows then is the AR-10A design, developed and produced exclusively by Armalite simultaneously along with what would become the AR15. None of the design improvements Artillerie Inrichtingen made were incorporated into this design.

    The history is well known after this, the AR10 died when the U.S. military was more focused on the AR15 and hence why it took off and the AR10 didn't.

    The AR10 was dead for the longest time until the late 80's and 90's when Eugene Stoner and Reid Knight from Knights Armament re-introduced it in a product improved version. He took his AR15 design and all the improvements that platform had and scaled it up in what came to be known as the SR25. Most AR10 pattern guns today are a variation of the SR25 AR10 design. The modern AR10 being based off a scaled up AR15 is also why they are classified as AR15 variants and not NR as they would be if they were AR10 variants.

    Where does the NEA 102 stand in the AR10 design chronology? Is it an original AR10 design? And by that I don't mean does it look like a 1950's AR10, obviously it does not, but did you follow the original, original, original AR10 design?

    Is it based off the original "Hollywood" Armalite AR10 design?

    Is it the Artillerie Inrichtingen AR10 with the improvement they made to the design independent of Armalite and their original AR10?

    Is it the final Armalite AR-10A design?

    Since it's not classified as restricted, I'm guessing it's not what would be the more common AR10/SR25 design based off the AR15 scale up and product improvements.

    Second. Is the NEA 102 AR10 design at a disadvantage over modern SR25 style AR10 rifles so (the scaled up AR15 design to make a .308 AR10)? Don't mistake this for me talking about brands here either, I'm talking about the design, DPMS, KAC, H&K, LMT, etc .308 AR10's are all based off the 1980/90's SR25 AR10 design.
