does anyone out there know of any reliable, quality piston 6.8's, besides barretts REC7? i've disasimbled the REC7 and, well quality isn't a word i would use to describe it. it was disapointing to say the least.

if you do i'd sure like to know. i've got the barrett m468(it is a great piece) but its still a gas impingment system.

i've up graded my AR situation to the POF nice, NICE piece. reversable piston for suppresed fire, simple, just unbelievable.

anyway if someone knows, i'd appreate it. thanks

You shoot the 6.8? Do you like it? I'm very interested in getting a AR in 6.8 but the target shoot would kill me in ammo, what's the effective range? I've seen the uppers thought about building one

yea i have robinson arms xcr-l its modular and i bought the stock one in 6.8 and bought .223 conversion.... the muzzle break is great brings recoil down to .223 levels. it was pricey, but it is like a combo of an AR, AK and FAL... best of all 3..... LOVE IT.

I have a Barrett REC 7 and love it and the ease of removal of the piston. LWRC makes a 6.8 and it's supposed to be very reliable and accurate. I have a LWRC in 556 and it's a very nice weapon. The only thing I don't like is having to remove the top rail to take out the piston. Although it doesn't seem to affect the point of aim.

Does anybody know where to order the 6.8 round in bulk at a good price? I'm researching rifles and was narrowing it down to the AK47 but then I came across the Ruger SR-556. I like the 7.62 round more than the 556 so the 6.8 seems like it deserves some looking into. I'm a little weary though because of the availability of that ammo, it seems pretty uncommon which is a drawback for me.

For all you folks complaining about the cost of 6.8, why not just start handloading? Anyone who puts much ammo downrange really should be reloading anyway. Not only is your ammo a lot less costly, but it's higher quality ammo too. Some cartridges, like the 6.8, just call for reloading. They aren't in high enough demand yet for prices to come down.

LWRC is good. There was some complaint about the Ruger rifles, something to do with barrel twist I think.
Are you talking about the SR 556 rifles or the SR 556 6.8? Could you give me a link to any known problems? I'm really considering this rifle in 5.56 so I would really appreciate some info on any known problems. I've been saving my pennies for a long time now and I want to make the best purchase possible. Thanks.

It wasnt as much of a problem, more of a complaint from the 6.8 community because the barrel they used on the 6.8 version was built for lighter ammo or the chamber wasnt built for the higher power ammo or something along those lines. It was only the 6.8 version, not the 5.56
