The 102 is a rifle designed as an entry level, semi-automatic .308 that can be used for hunting or target shooting and is classified as non-restricted in Canada. Along with being affordable, versatile and “accessory compatible,” the non-restricted classification has made the 102 the best selling semi-automatic .308 rifle in Canada.
The 102 takes its heritage from the 102 Sporter, a rare Armalite rifle that was originally intended for civilian use. Only 24 original 102 Sporters were made before the project was halted, but now, in honour of the first semi-automatic rifle intended specifically for civilian use in North America, Black Creek Labs brings you the BCL 102.
This rifle is sold as a no-frills option to allow firearm enthusiasts and hunters a way to purchase a .308 semi-auto at a reasonable rate. With off-the-shelf ammunition, the rifle can achieve 1.5 to 2 moa right out of the box, however this rifle was made to upgrade. The 102 comes with a basic collapsable stock, a milspec trigger and a steel barrel made from nitrided 4150 and chambered in .308LR. Replace the mil-spec trigger with a match grade drop-in, add a fixed stock and spend some time finding the right ammunition and the 102 will group under 1 inch at 100.
