I've read about the new Barrett M468 in LE magazine. The LE and military need some thing more lethal at longer range, so Remington is developing a new round for M16/AR-15 family rifle. The upper will be interchangable with the AR lower, but we have to use their magazine and it only hold 25 rounds(bigger bullet I guess).

The price at impactgun is $2400.00(upper only) and it will be available in Sept. I've heard that the DS arms will come out with one soon. Hopefully the price will come down soon. I would love to have one of this upper in 20" for my AR.

All I can say is I have a buddy who built a rifle using one of their kits and he has been happy with it. a while back I posted a request for experiences with them and most people that replied seemed satisfied. I myself have never built a rifle using one of their kits, howvever.
