Armalite AR-10

Well, after much consideration. Lots of sleeples nights (well maybe not sleepless, just kind of restless) I have made my decision. It was a toss up between the Armalite AR-10 in .308, a Bushmaster in 5.56 or an AK. I decided to go with the AR-10. I believe it to be a more versatile weapon system.

The .308 is good for large game hunting and the AR weapon platform is a "proven in combat" system. I prefer the gas piston of the AK and others over the direct impengment of the AR, so as soon as I get it, its being sent off to a company, LWRC, that can fit it with a short stoke gas piston, From there it goes to ROBAR, for their NP3 coating on the insides of the gun. If you don't know what NP3 from ROBAR is, look it up. Its fantasitc, I have it on the "inards" and slide of my pistol. Its a nickle finish fused with tefelon.

The only thing I don't like about the AR-10, is the price tag. $1300.00 for the gun, about $100.00 plus shipping for the NP3 and I don't know yet about the gas piston fitting. Wow, a bit much, but well worth it.

Just thought I'd share. Thanks

if you or anyone you know has an M1A- I'd love to see a comparison. the .308 when combined with an accurized and properly bedded barrel makes for a sweet precision rifle system. When you use a high capacity semi auto rifle like an M1A or AR-10, it makes for a great backup sniper rifle. Accurate enough to reach out far- and fast enough to open up a whole case of whoop-ass when you need to.

I believe this merc is using an AR-10. The magazines might just look larger cause theyre closer to the mag, but I think they're 308. at 1:35 radio chatter from his spotter says that there are bad guys at about 800 meters, and that he cleaned them out.
