Brownells Expands Their Line of Retro AR Rifles (SHOT Recap - Facebook Live)

Brownells Expands Their Line of Retro AR Rifles (SHOT Recap - Facebook Live)


“If it goes in a gun, on a gun, through a gun, a gun goes in it, or it is a gun—we’ve got it.”

That statement has never proved truer than at the 2019 SHOT Show where our Joe Kriz spoke with Brownells Public Relations Specialist, Roy Hill, about their latest products.

Already the world’s leading source for everything shooting-related, Brownells has been making branded gun parts, accessories and tools for years. However, it wasn’t until 2018 that they launched their first firearms—a series of retro AR rifles that became an instant hit with gun owners both young and old. This year, they continued to grow the lineup with the addition of the BRN-605, BRN-PROTO and BRN-180 Upper Receiver Assembly.


Both the BRN-605 and BRN-PROTO replicate never-issued models from Colt and Eugene Stoner, respectively, while the the BRN-180 Upper Receiver Assembly delivers a unique combination of 1960s nostalgia and modern functionality. Despite being built from new production components, shooters will be impressed by the level of historical accuracy of the designs, accurate down to the smallest roll pin. MSRP of the BRN-605 and BRN-PROTO is $1,299.99; $799.99 for the BRN-180 Upper Receiver Assembly.

But wait, there’s more! One year after breaking into firearms, Brownells is entering the world of riflescopes with new Match Precision Optics designed for long-range competition. Initially available in two models, 3-18x50mm and 5-25x56mm, both scopes feature high-quality Japanese glass, 34mm main tubes, MRAD turrets, and an in-house designed Non-Obscuring Milling Reticle. MSRP for both models is $999.99.

Guns & Ammo TV: Shooting 1,270 Yards with the 5.56 NATO

Guns & Ammo Rifles & Optics Editor Tom Beckstrand was on location in Idaho where he pushed the limits of the 5.56 NATO cartridge in this segment of “Long Range Tech” for Guns & Ammo TV. Pairing a SIG Sauer MCX Virtus rifle loaded with Hornady's 73-grain ELD-M ammunition, Beckstrand attempted to ring steel set at 1,270 yards, an incredible distance for any 5.56-chambered rifle and beyond the typical range for an AR-15.
