I miss this OD Green AR-10A2.
It's been a few years, but I needed the money at the time.

That looks sweet, even with your toes in the picture. It has a sort of Vintage look to it. What model is (was) that?
Link Posted: 4/10/2014 7:11:11 AM EDT
LOL, gotta have the toes in an ARFCOM pic!. It started out as an A2 like yours but I sent it in and had it converted over to an A4. I put an SWS rail on it at one time and tried to turn it into a SASS of sort. She would shoot no better than 3/4 MOA but with a chromed lined barrel that was pretty darned good. When I picked up a AR-10T I just switched the tubes around. As you can tell I got the rifle during the ban, I think around '01 or so...

I bought one of the first batch offered.
Nothing but problems, went back to the factory 3 or 4 times.
Don't miss it one bit.

When I say it was a semi-auto, I mean that half the time is was a single shot.

I'll ask for forgiveness beforehand.

Me selling my AR10 would be like a crackhead selling crack. The product just doesn't flow that way. I'm hooked for life.

I sold the the A4 I bought right before my son was born (29 years ago, it's hard to believe it was that long ago!) to help pay for the hospital bills. I regretted it so much, I had to buy 2 to replace it, which I have to this day & will never again make that mistake. If I get that hard up for cash again, the boy will be up for sale, PDQ!

I had an A4, sold it to help pay for a wedding ring.....big mistake.

So, I took what was left and built up an MaTen with mostly armalite parts. Just wish I could use armalite mags...

CDNN has AR-10's for $1199 20" stainless flat tops.
w/ 2 stage match triggers and free floated match barrel.

Looks like the 10T, but that's not directly noted in the ad.

Is that a lightweight barrel?

It was the "standard" barrel. Definitely did not seem like a heavy barrel. Nothing like the (T) model heavy barrels at least.

Sold a Gen 3 bolt carrier which I wish I had kept.

The day I sold my AR-10 was a much better day than the day I bought it. That is one rifle I never missed at all, not even a little.

To all of you who regret having the AR10, is it because it wasn't that good, or your expectations were so high? Maybe a little of both?

One guy said reliability issues, the other didn't give a reason.

If it works right, it works right, if it don't, its insured by one of the best warranties in the business. Some people don't like sending their guns in for repair. I'm one of them. That said, these aren't custom rifles, some of them WILL have problems, and if those problems land on folks who don't like worrying with it, then they give bad reviews. That's why QC is so important. Minimized risk for the manufacturer, and minimized trouble for the customer. Its a win win.

Anytime you are buying a production anything, warranty and customer service should be high on your list of things to go with.

Yes......but i kept the mags and made good money on it post sandy hook. I have two more now that have replaced it. Would like a third though.

I'll never sell this one.....AR10A4 SS with KurtsKustom M60 style flash hider and bipod

I had a new AR10 NM and have zero regrets selling it.

Its decent but not my cup of tea and prefer piston drive ( or G3 ) style guns.

That's interesting. I've owned this AR10, a PTR-91, and a DSA FAL.
I liked the PTR.....exluding the weight and felt recoil.
I liked everything about the FAL except for the requirement to adjus the gas system.
The AR-10A2 was good all around to me. I would buy another if I didn't have other projects in mind.

The FAL is about as bullet proof as it gets and adjusting the gas is as simple as it gets. I have built several and owned about every variation FAL and it really is a great rifle.
The PTR / G3 should be the most reliable of anything with few moving parts, just do not dent the cocking tube.

I REALLY like piston guns and if I had to give up my M1A's I would try a POF rifle in a heart beat. Lots of good feedback and accurate.
I am completely out of all direct gas guns which means 6 AR's and one AR10 have been sold or traded away and I do not miss any of them. Just a personal choice.
Link Posted: 4/21/2014 5:32:25 PM EDT
Please take that bipod off the barrel, that hurts my eyes.

Bad juju there.

MY ar10T had a bad bolt stop latch. It broke because it was not heat treated correctly.

They sent a replacement. Same thing. They asked me to send it in.

I did, they determined that it was a bad heat treatment.

Corrected it, sent it back, ran like a top ever since.

It is my go to gun, and dead on balls accurate with my handloads.

This! Two trips back to Armalite and I still had to swap out several parts to make it run. Best sell decision I ever made.
Link Posted: 4/22/2014 3:36:19 PM EDT
The most accurate reliable 762 x51 platform I have owned. Sold off the PTR/91 and FN FAL and bought 2 more this year.
Link Posted: 4/23/2014 5:40:28 AM EDT
I would really like to see armalite put out a nice billet receiver. I know the forged is stronger, but I'm honestly just tired of basic looking receivers. "if it ain't broke" certainly applies, but "just because" does to. They have the resources and capabilities to make something very nice. Id pay as much as I did for my mega set for some nice armalite billets, then I could use armalite mags again.
Link Posted: 4/23/2014 5:47:21 AM EDT
Friend of mine had one. Most accurate rifle I have seen. 20" stainless barrel.
I have thought of selling my last FNFAL and mags to help fund one. It ran like a clock.

In terms of MBR's, I've owned HK-91, FAL varients, and AR10 varients, and prefer AR-10.
To me they are the best balance of simplicity, weight, felt recoil, and accuracy.
I'll probably own another 91, but probably not an FAL.
