The gun maker’s AM-10 Breacher is an AR pistol chambered in 308 Winchester, making it well worth a look if you want the portability of an AR pistol, but in a rifle caliber.

Anderson Manufacturing Process Engineer Truman Brough made the following statements regarding the AM-10 pistol:

The Breacher perfectly rounds out the AM-10 lineup with a compact firearm that packs a punch. Inspired by short barrel variants of battle rifles used by armed forces worldwide, the Breacher offers the power of a full-size cartridge in a lightweight, compact package. Equip this AM-10 with your favorite sights, and you have a handy ‘do-it-all’ firearm that’s ready for almost anything.
