AIA M-10 infomation

I read many shooting magazines from around the world and I came across this advertisement in an Australian magazine. It shows what must to be the current AIA M-10 range being produced.

I scanned it into the computer. Click the image below to enlarge it.

Australian International Arms (AIA) calls the M-10 the the 5th generation Lee-Enfield, read more about it here.

I fired up Skype and actually tried calling one of the Australian companies at the bottom of the advert to see if I could get any more information about the rifles. Unfortunately after trying two numbers I realized my rough timezone calculations were a bit off. Checking a timezone website confirmed this!

It is a pity they do not offer the 7.62×39 version anymore. Not at all practical but a 30 round AK-47 magazine on a bolt action rifle would be … unique! Although the special edition M10-B3 that has a M134 mini-gun barrel is very cool 😀

I have no new information about their availability in the US.

    Just bought one of these rifles in England chambered for 7.62x39. purely awsome. Great survival rifle and good cheap shooting . Go for it even better if you can get it in 762x39

    I recently acquired AIA M10 B1, 7.62x51 in Canada.

    Question: the trigger seems a bit loose. When I cock the bolt and press the trigger I can feel the two steps, everything seems to be working fine.

    However, when I turn the riffle up and down the trigger moves rather freely. I would appreciate if someone can let me know if this is normal.

      @George Ah! there should be no play before 1st pressure. On the bright side , any work on this type trigger mechanism shoudl be very basic and cheap to get done at a Gunsmith
