 Retro , does that mean it was built to look like an original AR 10 ?   Or is it a real original one ? The Rear Sight doesn't look correct for an original , I have very little knowledge about Original AR 10"s .

It was a throwback model made in the mid 2000's I think. Made in Geneseo Illinois.

 So its a Factory Rifle , not someones build .

No but many people that want a build as close to original as they can get grab these as a base then add original stuff as they can get it. The upper is the premium item with the pegasus marked lower close behind.

 Shouldn't it have a A1 type rear sight , if it was an original AR 10 Upper ?

Where did the A2 sight Upper come from , Armalite ?  Was the Upper Receiver altered for the A2 Sight  ?

I'm sure ArmaLite just got in the ballpark without spending a bunch on new parts, did the big stuff for the general appearance then went with what was on the shelves already.

It was a specific upper just for that model, hence the retro charging handle. They sold spares for it in their clearence section for years.
