308 survival rifle

  1. Firearms General Discussion
    I have a friend who just recently came out as a wannabe survivalist LOL He want's to buy a rifle, he already owns a handgun and shotgun. I took him to the range and let him shoot every one of my rifles, and he has decided that he wants an AR15. I tried to push him towards a Remington 700 in...

    Hello. I am new to the forums and fairly new to preparedness and I would like some feedback and suggestions from you veterans. I have been focusing on my food situation and I have a good system and have built up adequate stocks for my needs and now I am turning towards security. I am familiar...

    Thinking about getting a PTR91 GI model, what are your thoughts? Owners of a PTR91, what common mods have you done? Should I spend another $300-$400 and just get an AR10? Or should I spend another $600-$700 and buy a Springfield M1A? Or is the PTR91 a good rifle for the money?

    Here is my question...I have 2 m1a's and an appropriate number of magazines and ammo to support the platform; but I keep seeing these nice looking PTR 91's at cdnn for $849. They have 16" barrels and I found magazines for sale locally for $4 each. Is it worth it to get this and learn and...

    Working up another article for ReadyMan Magazine and I could use some input. I was just debating with my Navy SEAL co-host the merits of a .308 battle rifle. His point: there's not much of a tactical slot for a semi-auto .308. So, we'll probably build an article with him shooting the SCAR Heavy...

    Just moved out of my parents house after graduating college, looking to invest in a battle rifle before I enlist as an officer in the marine corps. These are the ones I have looked at just wondering if anyone can share their experience. I have enough money to buy any of them but obviously the...

    Man oh man, what a weekend. In a previous article we talked about survivalism as an experience and not just a theory. This past weekend was to expand my experience, and to improve upon my theories. Part of my prepping for SHTF / TEOTWAWKI includes going to the Bug Out Location for a couple of...

    So, with doomsday just around the corner I've been looking for an appropriate rifle. I've hunted with a bolt action .308 since age 12 and already have a decent stock of ammo and reloading supplies. I like what I see in the PTR-91 with a 16 inch barrel. Never shot one but I hear the recoil is...

    If your ONLY two choices for a personal AR/MBR (gotta cover your bases for the nit-pickers) were the Armalite AR-10 16" Carbine or the PTR91 Squad Carbine 16" which would you choose and what would be your decision factors?

    My wife is wanting a "Real" rifle. Not an AR mind you, but an all-purpose, hunting and defense rifle. The spec: .308/7.62X51 caliber Under 8 lbs. Semi-auto preferred, bolt maybe 10+ rd mags. 18" barrel preferred, 16" maybe able to take a scope So far the only one I have found that seems...

    Ok, so for the past few years my MBR has been a converted saiga 7.62x39. Which in it's own right isn't a bad thing at all. I love AK's. The design just works. All be it a some what stolen design. I am pretty hardcore into weapons history. So seeing where all modern select fire magazine fed...

    I'm currently trying to decide on a MBR. Initially .308 was the only caliber I considered, and from there it was the typical M1A, FAL, PTR, Saiga debate. Now I'm backtracking a bit and wondering if 7.62x54R might offer some more options. My initial budget is limited to $1000, and I had been...

    Lets say that I have a "friend" and this friend wants to add some modifications to his DS Arms SA58 FN/FAL. What would be some good mods to add to the rifle? The first thing is a scope mount. The rifle is just a standard SA58 with no rail or scope mount on the dust cover. From what I was...

    Thinking real hard about adding one of these to our battery, to those of you that own one how are they? How about mags, aluminum or steel? I'm an AK guy but we need to add a longer reaching auto to our loadout and this one fits the bill.

    Ok. I have a chance to get a Norinco sporter M14. From what I've read, they are hard to find. I like the 308 round and wanted some opinions. He wants $900 for it. Is this a good deal or am I just fixated on an M14? Any help would be appreciated.
