Last week, we told you about the .308 Battle Rifle from BNTI Arms. Now, the gun maker is rolling out yet another product, and it’s a doozy: the BNTI Arms Warrior Series AR/AK 7.62x39mm BA Beast Optics Ready rifle.

The AR/AK 7.62 BA Beast Optics Ready Rifle features a 16-inch, 4150 barrel with a 1:10 twist; precision machined MIL-Spec forged 7075-T6 lower; MIL-Spec forged 7075-T6 aluminum alloy M4 upper with M4 feed ramps; M-LOK handguard & vertical grip; Magpul ACS-L polymer stock; and much, much more.

“The age old debate AK vs AR… well, at BNTI ARMS, we say ‘why not have the best of both worlds?’ Our new rifle takes the best of the AR and AK platforms and creates a reliable, accurate rifle that can be easily accessorized and fires a round that hits like a sledgehammer,” said Jim Pledger, President of BNTI ARMS.
