14 Top 300 AAC Blackout Tactical Rifles

Bringing you a collection of greatest hits built for the powerful, suppressor-ready 300 AAC Blackout!

The wars fought in Afghanistan and Iraq since 9/11 have shown the need for a cartridge more effective than the standard 5.56mm NATO round. Military planners wanted a .30-caliber bullet similar to the Soviet 7.62x39mm AK-47 cartridge with the same or better performance. The challenge was to design a cartridge that would be more effective at greater distances and defeat barricades more efficiently, minimize the effects of crosswinds over longer ranges and feed 30 rounds from a standard AR magazine. The tactical demands of battle also required a cartridge that could be loaded to subsonic velocities yet still function reliably and accurately in short-barreled rifles with suppressors.

Developed by Advanced Armament Corporation (AAC), the 300 AAC Blackout, or 300 BLK, can be fired from a standard 5.56mm AR simply by changing out the barrel. The dimensions of the 300 BLK cartridge are the same as the .300 Whisper, which preceded it. The difference is that the 300 BLK was approved by SAAMI.

Here are some of the latest 300 BLK rifles available today.

    Two controls on the handi rifle? I can think of one more…correct me if I’m wrong but the hammer has to be engaged, no?
