Fine Armalite AR-10 machine gun made from an original "BNP" proofed heavy barreled parts kit manufactured onto a "CENTRAL KY ARMS, CYNTHIANA, KY" receiver. Duke Ballenge made receivers in the early 1980’s and then acquired parts kits and assembled them into fully transferable machine guns. He did an absolutely stellar job bringing a few more fully transferable specimens of this landmark historic Stoner design to Class III collecting community. This specimen includes two 20 round magazines. This design has an interesting history including its limited use by the military forces of Burma, Cuba, Guatemala, Italy, Portugal, and Sudan, as well as some being used by the French foreign legion. Reminiscent in appearance to the later AR-15, the AR-10 was designed to be a lightweight successor to the heavier M-14 and FN-FAL .308 rifles of the 1950’s, and was particularly appreciated by troops which used them in the Africa as being reliable, accurate, and packing the punch to be able to shoot through foliage as well as being effective at long range. Nearly all of the AR-10’s found in the United States are Sudanese and Portuguese guns brought in as parts kits and built onto semi-auto receivers, and it is fortunate when one can find a full-auto, fully transferable specimen. Included is one 20 round magazine. CONDITION: Overall appearance and finish is near excellent refinish upon remanufacture on metal parts with some handling marks visible on the composite furnishings. Bore is extremely fine, shiny and bright. Bolt face also extremely fine. Mechanics are crisp. This is a select fire machine gun. THIS IS A NATIONAL FIREARMS ACT ITEM AND REQUIRES BATF APPROVAL PRIOR TO TRANSFER. THIS ITEM IS FULLY TRANSFERABLE ON AN ATF FORM 3 OR 4.
