Rifles that come in .308 and .223?

Just curious, how many rifles do you know of that come in both calibers, or have a variation in either caliber.

FN FNC - FN FAL
HK91 - HK33
M1A - Mini 14
Armalite AR10 - AR15
SCAR17s - SCAR16s

These are to name but a few, I imagine there might be more

Remington 700 isn't a semiauto.

Valmet, Sig Sauer, SIG, Galil, CETME and if you really want to get obscure... HOWA (Japan type 64/89).

Colt makes the sp901 in 308 that will also accept a mill spec 223/5.56 upper.

That may have been the intention of the OP's question, but it is not specified in the post. Just sayin'....

We are in the semi-auto rifle forum. Just sayin'....


I also believe the Bushmaster (or Remington) ACR was designed for quick caliber conversion but I don't know if any of the kits are out

They were supposed to at some point offer a 6.8 SPC conversion for the ACR, but to date this hasn't materialized.

The ACR can not accept a 7.62x51/.308 conversion, but Magpul is working on a design similar to the ACR (called the Massoud), but chambered in 7.62x51/.308. This rifle is still in development.
