As one of the premier builders of quality rifles today, Turnbull Mfg. Co. is pleased to announce their latest project, a carbon steel 308 semi-automatic rifle chambered in 7.625x51mm/.308 Winchester.
Turnbull Mfg. Co. is entering the 7.62x51mm /.308 Winchester rifle market with the introduction of their TAR-10 308. The basic design of the 308 follows the proven AR15 system design. The TAR-10 308 shares several operational parts with the AR15, but the majority of its components are scaled up to accommodate the larger .308 Winchester cartridge.
The TAR-10 308 delivers more power to the target – and at longer range – than is possible with the 5.56mm cartridge. The .308 Winchester has traditionally been the cartridge of choice for most military and police marksmen.
The TAR-10 308 is a gas operated semi-auto that locks with a rotating bolt. The rifle comes with both a 10 round and a 4 round detachable magazine.
Unlike any other AR style rifle, the TAR-10 is built of steel and color case hardened using Turnbull’s proprietary finish. The receiver is made from a 8620 billet, with the upper and lower halves attached in the AR style. The upper receiver has a built-in high rise picatinny rail sight platform, eliminating the need for special scope risers. The pistol grip buttstock and forend are American walnut and sling swivels are standard. Anyone familiar with the AR15 rifle will be right at home with the TAR-10 308, including the multiple configuration capability that is the mark of AR type weapons.
The TAR-10 308 is a fine weapon for those desiring a quality long range precision rifle. It allows accurate placement of shots and a higher sustained rate of fire than a comparable bolt or lever action rifle.
