Andro Corp. Industries (ACI) is  a Florida-based designer and manufacturer of AR platforms, uppers and lowers, and AR parts that are built for  sport shooters, personal defense and professionals alike. Now they are introducing their latest product, the new ACI AR10 Divergent .308 rifle. The ACI AR10 receiver set was years in the making and is the foundation of the new base model AR10 Divergent .308 rifle.

“We have been waiting a long time to be able to make available ACI rifles built on an ACI designed and produced receiver set,” Josh Dewell, co-owner of Andro Corp., explained. “As Andro Corp. expands our offerings and our markets, we knew it was critical to our business mission to build guns on our own platform. This new base AR10 receiver set is just the beginning of Andro Corp. demonstrating our design and manufacturing prowess in the AR marketplace.”

The new base ACI receiver set includes many of the features that Andro Corp. customers have been asking for, such as a skeletonized trigger group, flared mag well, and an Andro Corp. shield engraved on the upper. The new ACI base model AR10 Divergent is made from billet aluminum and is available with a 16 to 18-inch barrel chambered in .308 Winchester, with additional calibers available soon.
