Armalite AR-10 Serial Number Date

The Armalite AR-10 is a 7.6251mm NATO battle rifle designed by Eugene Stoner in the late 1950s and manufactured by Armalite (then a division of the Fairchild Aircraft Corporation). It was one of the first rifles to use a straight-line barrel/stock design, a gas-operated bolt and carrier system, and phenolic composite parts. It was also the predecessor of the famous AR-15/M16 rifle. [1]


However, the original AR-10 was produced in relatively small numbers, with fewer than 10,000 rifles assembled. [1] Therefore, finding information about the serial number and date of manufacture of an AR-10 can be challenging. In this article, we will try to provide some guidance on how to identify and date an AR-10 based on its serial number and other features.

Armalite AR-10 Serial Number Prefixes

The first thing to look for when trying to date an AR-10 is the serial number prefix. The prefix indicates the manufacturer and the model of the rifle. The following table summarizes the main prefixes used by Armalite and its licensees for the AR-10: [2]







AR-10 (original)



Artillerie-Inrichtingen (AI)

AR-10 (Dutch)



Société Alsacienne de Constructions Mécaniques (SACM)

AR-10 (French)



Sudanese Military Industries Corporation (SMIC)

AR-10 (Sudanese)



Hollywood Arms Company (HAC)

AR-10 (replica)



Eagle Arms (EA)

AR-10A/B/C/D/E/F/G/H/I/J/K/L/M/N/O/P/Q/R/S/T/U/V/W/X/Y/Z/0/1/2/3/4/5/6/7/8/9 (modern)1995-present

Note that some prefixes may have been reused by different manufacturers over time, such as A.I., SACM, and SUDAN. Therefore, it is important to also look at other features of the rifle, such as the markings, the configuration, and the parts, to determine its origin and date.

Armalite AR-10 Serial Number Ranges and Dates

The next thing to look for when trying to date an AR-10 is the serial number range and date. The range indicates the approximate number of rifles produced by a given manufacturer or model, while the date indicates the year or period of production. The following table summarizes the main ranges and dates for the AR-10: [2] [3]
