NotAR-10 Barrel Profiles


Both barrels are by Faxon.  The M1956A2 uses a "medium weight" barrel, the BRN-10B a pencil-thin lightweight.

This is where most of the pound of weight difference resides.  The rest is in the much chunkier upper receiver from DPMS.

I was surprised to discover that Brownell's had not just licensed NoDak's molds for the handguards.


Brownell's has six holes in all four locations.  NoDak has five holes at 3 and 9.  They're also different enough in shape that you can't mix them on the same gun.  I think I remember Harlan from NoDak saying that Brownell's is using a more expensive plastic too.
