I am doing my homework now for a new AR rifle. One rifle I am looking at is the Barrett M468 (w/telestock). I like the setup that Barrett has on the M468:

Dual Spring Extractor System Specifications
· Muzzle Brake Caliber: 6.8 Remington SPC
· Folding Front Sight and Gas Block Operation: Semi-Automatic/Select Fire
· 30 Round Magazine Overall Length: 35.4 in.
· Two Stage Trigger Barrel Length: 16 in. (Chrome Lined)
· ARMS® (SIR) System Fore End Weight: 7.3 lbs.
· ARMS® Folding Rear Sight
· Optional Sound Suppressor

Does anyone have one of these yet? If so, what is your honest opinion? I believe that if it is a Barrett, it has to be good. One thing you cannot deny is the additional knock-down power of the 6.8 REM SPC.

I have a M-468 I purchased in January. Over all I'm very satisfied with it although I had to send it back to have the stock buffer tube removed so I could have a LMT SOPMOD stock installed. The standard tube was so tight and I didn't want to use undo force or apply heat to the new lower so they( Barrett) had me send it back and I received it back within a couple of days and had the LMT stock installed. The Barrett magazines are also somewhat tighter in the magwell than my PRI magazines but both seem to feed and function well. I also added a Tango Down Battle Grip and Vertical Foregrip and just recently a EOTech 552 and Surefire 961XM06. I have a Nightforce 2.5X10 NXS in LaRue M68CCO mounts and accuracy with it as well as the back up iron sights has been very good.

Midway had 6.8 brass, a couple of weeks ago, but sold out in a day or two. They've already got more brass in stock, so it looks like supply is starting to catch up with demand.

Thanks for the feedback. Sounds like Barrett is very reputable and accommodating. I am hoping to get the M468-LE model with the telestock and the optional sound supressor. Of course, this will cost me quite a bit. I will change the stock for the Magpul M93B stock and add a TD VG. Since I have an EOTech 512A65 on my DPMS Panther Carbine, I am thinking about mounting an ACOG on the Barrett. I am not sure what light system I will be using, but it will be Surefire. I went simple with the DPMS and mounted a Streamlight Scorpion with a Samco mount.
