Yep, just picked this up from WallyWorld...flat top upper, 2 mags, 18" barrel...Pretty happy about this!

ETA: This would not have been possible if my old buddy Sam (SMLockeIII) hadn't noticed it in the case and sent me a text message. Thanks for the heads up, Sam!

I'm really not up to speed on such things, but that seems like a smokin' deal!

Now get out and shoot it and give us a range report!

I bought a armalite ar-10 here for $1000 two years ago. It was used but in very good shape. I think you got a pretty decent deal.

That's a helluva deal for a 308 AR. With a couple hundred bucks into that thing it'll be as good as any other high end 308 AR.

I agree. There just seems to be a large amount of dislike around here for that particular company. I happen to own one and I am completely happy with it. Like I said, good buy.

$897 is the correct price, and this looks like a pretty nice rifle. My first .308 in the AR platform, we'll be heading out to the range in the morning!

DPMS LR308 can use the PMAG.

I think this is the cheapest 308 that does.

I've had feed problems with DPMS 4rd mags, CProducts 5rd. I haven't tried anything else.
I bout the 5 round limiter for 20rd PMAGS, not realizing it was 20rd 5.56 PMAGs.
I've yet to try 20 rounders of any kind, just because I''m pretty much restricted at the range, and in the field (hunting).
I wish/hope Magpul has something in the works for the 7.62 PMAGs. I know I can stick a block of wood in their, but an engineered solution would be nice.

my 2 ar's, one with an FN A2 upper and the other a CMMG M4 14.7 w/PA A3 fh, both on DPMS lowers. I personally would not but one of their complete 5.56 guns, they just don't look right to me, but the lowers are GTG. That .308 is intriguing.
