The Bear Creek Arsenal .410 AR-15 Shotgun Is a Quick-Change Artist

The .410 is a versatile round, good for hunting and with the right loads suitable for home defense. And now, Bear Creek Arsenal offers the .410 in an AR-15 platform. But even cooler is the fact that you can easily swap out the upper so you can also shoot rimfire, pistol, and rifle calibers.

The .410 is available as a ready-to-go AR-15 shotgun or as a complete upper you can add to your existing Bear Creek lower. Featuring Bear Creek Arsenal’s Gen-2 side charging handle, the .410 AR-15 also provides enhanced ergonomics.

Likewise, a 3-inch chamber allows you to load a single magnum round or TSS turkey load via manual loading. However, the magazine still only accepts 2.5-inch shells, in keeping with the AR platform. So, you are limited to a single magnum round or TSS turkey load.

A full removable choke provides tight groups at up to 50 yards but can be swapped out to tighten or loosen your patterns. Correspondingly, a Picatinny rail runs the top of the upper for the attachment of your choice of optic. As a result, the tight group and accuracy assures you hit your mark when you need to. Similarly, an M-Lok handguard offers multiple attachment points for additional accessories.

The .410 AR-15 shotgun comes with a 5-round magazine, but other magazines are available through other manufacturers. Although Bear Creek recommends using well-known ammunition, it has been tested and functions well with a wide variety.

If you purchase a complete upper alone, it will pin to any MIL-SPEC AR-15 lower, and with a simple mag swap, you are ready to go. However, with the purchase of corresponding uppers, the Bear Creek lower allows you to swap between rimfire, pistol, rifle, and shotgun.
