In this video, John Buol conducts an overview of the Noreen BN36 rifle and details how its performance compares to other AR-15 designs. Noreen Firearms has been in the gunsmithing business for nearly three decades since its beginning with custom-built game rifles based on pre-’64 Model 70 Winchester actions. The family-owned business delved into ultra-long-range shooting designs (beyond 1,000 yards) with their single-shot, bolt-action Ultra Long Range (ULR) rifle in 2007. The company has evolved its designs into self-loaders, a trend exhibited by the new BN36, a stationary, piston-driven AR-15 platform that accepts full-length cartridges such as .30-06 Springfield, .270 Winchester and .25-06 Remington.
