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

Why not just get a quality AR-10 from Colt, KAC, or Larue( team guys use these a ton over the SCAR)?

The Larue especially would be cheaper than all that custom BS and so far there is no proof an op rod is better than DI, and especially drop in conversions. Hell the Larue was selected to be used instead of the SCAR by numerous SFG.

The LMT 308MWS is also another option, one which outperformed HK, FNH, and one other in the british trials in all categories(reliability, durability, and accuracy).

I do always enjoy the hur dur AK better dan AR so let me drop in a half ass conversion, that way I can make myself feel better about false errorwebz informations.
