Guns and Holsters shares a little more detail about Armalite’s new M-15 line. We had mentioned Armalite’s new AR-10 pistol. As well as the Luth-AR stock partnership.

Well according to Guns and Holsters, some of the new M-15s will be chambered in .223 Wylde. Here is a technical note by Armalite. It says that the Wylde aka Modified SAAMI Chamber is better suited for 5.56 Nato match rounds and improved accuracy.

The 3-Gun M-15s will be sporting their own tunable muzzle brake. They also come standard with Timney Triggers set at 3lbs. They will be kitted out with light weight Keymod handguards. Not word on price yet.

    .223 wylde, good. Timney AR trigger, very meh. “Tunable” giant break, bad.

    AR-10 pistol…. Oh Armalite… 🙁

    Forever 1 step forward and at least 2 steps back.

      What’s good about the .223 Wylde? It seems like an ever so slightly larger .223 rem that uses heavier bullets. I’m not trying to start a flame war, I honestly don’t know.

        Basically, is a 556 chamber that shoots more accurately. Any good SPR/DMR in 556 is going to have a wylde chamber. The downside is ammo must be in spec.

        • SM

          And if the ammo is slightly out of spec? What about shooting regualr .223/5.56 out of it?

          • JumpIf NotZero

            Ammo out of spec just means it won’t go into battery or if the shoulder is pushed back too much that the firing pin won’t hit, won’t extract.

            In terms of size: 556 > wylde > 223

            It’s just a 556 that’s a little more accurate.

            Noveske uses a non-556 chamber, it’s their version of wylde. KAC iirc uses their own version too, but it’s all the same idea.

    The uppers look pretty. Though that “tunable” muzzle brake has virtually no tuning capacity.

    It’s hard to watch a company with such a great heritage resort to gimmicks and derpery. I own one of their (original) AR10s and it runs like a tank. No frills, no gimmicks, just a solidly built gun that is accurate, eats anything and functions flawlessly every time. Sadly, when I was in the market for a new AR15 I didn’t even consider them. This newest release doesn’t change my opinion.

      Aren’t these two new ArmaLite rifles for 3-gun and varmint type shooting? Wouldn’t they be expected to be less simple than a USGI replica AR?

      I think ArmaLite still offers quite a few KISS models of ARs.
