* AR stands for Armalite, the company that first developed this style of semi-automatic rifle. It is unclear from this, or other pictures, if it is an AR 15 or an AR 10. The default chambering for the former is usually NATO 5.56/.223 Remington and for the latter is usually NATO 7.62/.308 Winchester.
