ArmaLite Inc. proudly introduces the new AR-31. The AR-31 shares the design and the accuracy of our highly acclaimed AR-30A1 bolt-action rifles, but with three MAJOR differences: the AR-31 is chambered in .308 Winchester, it is a short action version of the AR-30A1, and it accepts Armalite’s AR-10B double-stack magazines. That means you can use 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25 round mags with the AR-31. For sub-MOA accuracy, think ArmaLite’s AR31!

Caliber: .308 Winchester
Barrel: 24" Double Lapped, Chrome Moly
Rifling Twist: 1:10
Muzzle Device: Muzzle Brake
Trigger: Single Stage
Stock: Adjustable Cheek Piece (Height) & Buttstock (Length)
Overall Length: 45.4" - 47.4"
Weight: 14.1 LBS


Your Price: $3,460.00 EA

Retail at online prices will be $2,750-$2,850 if not less than that.

 

Heck, their AR50-A1 50BMG retails for that much and you can find them new for under $3k.

You can get a nice 308 semi (LaRue/Knight) for around the 3k mark.  I don't see this getting much traction in the firearms community.

I also fail to see high sales potential for the 14 lb brute.

For well less than $3k the upper end .308 semi AR's like the LMT mws Slickside can be had. Highly accurate, 5 lbs lighter, etc, etc. But, of course, "different strokes" always applies.

The Armalite AR10 SASS .308 can be bought for $2,700. No interest either for the AR31.
