I asked many questions concerning an AR-10 purchase through the LaRue and AR discussion forums. I have purchased two AR-10 lemons from two different manufacturers in the past two months but they were very good refunding my money so I will not mention their names. On my third attempt I purchased a LaRue OBR 7.62 18" and I am extremely happy to say after firing 100 rounds at three different range visits it has fired without one problem. One member of this forum said "the third time is a charm", he's completely right. I realize I have only fired 300 rounds through my new LaRue but I don't think that I will not be having any issues based on its flawless passed firing. There are a few reasons why I purchased LaRue instead of more expensive manufactures models in which I inquired to this forum about. First, my decision process was based on this form and was well accepted as I am new to the AR platforms. My second decision was based on the wording that LuRue used in their website in which I backed up through e-mails and phone calls to them. I like when companies say, "if you ain't happy we aren't" and "we know how to make our CNC machines dance and peoples tell us so". But my primary decision-making was truly based on what the end users have to say and now that I am an end user myself I understand the feeling of a good reliable AR-10 in my hands. I will keep youse guys posted after I run 1500 rounds through but I am sure you already know what my answer will be.

Did I mention that I was ringing 12"x12" mental targets at 400 meters with pinpoint accuracy along with the help of my ACOG 3.5x35. 440 meters is our furthest distance at Koko Head range Oahu, Hawaii.

Thanks for all of your support, TriggerMaster101

There is one picture of my LuRue 7.62 18" to the left of my username.  But I understand, am I right about this.  When displaying pictures on AR-15 you have to upload pictures to the web and then cut and paste the link into the post.  Is that right or is there an easier way to do it within AR-15?

Off topic, but when I heard the noise from the Koko Head range while I was snorkeling in Hanauma Bay last year, it made me wish I brought my rifles with me on vacation.

Meh, I'm sure with your 7K posts you wouldn't understand.

Do you own THE ORIGINAL ar anything?  Wait, I do....


The AR bug didn't bite me until 2 years ago.  Sorry.

Did you have to load special ego bullets to hit them?
