I'm in the market for an AR-10 design rifle. It will be used for shooting from 5m-300m, I would like to keep the price under $1500 with tax. What should I get?

If you're not in a real hurry I'd see what the new Colt 901 sells for when it gets released.

I like the barrel setup, weight and handling qualities of the Bushmaster 308 rifle.  I'd probably just replace the gas block with a PRI or ARMS clamp on gas block with fold down front sight, or for a little more $, add a DD 12" rail to create a "recce" like configuration.

I too would try the Colt when it gets released.

This was an ad from Colt, but supposedly they are going to actually sell a shorter handguard & gas system version instead.  I'd rather have this longer version personally.

I wonder about the Colt mags? Any ideas?

The SHOT show guns has PMags, so they apparently take SR25 pattern mags.

Rail, sights, I'll bet street price going to be $1800+.

Yeah I'm kinda wondering about the $$$ as well, I mean it does have Colt stamped on the side! I like how it's compatible with 5.56 mil-spec "Colt" uppers, guess I can't use my Bushy or Ruger uppers? Looks pretty cool though!

Get JP's LRP-07 Long Range Precision Rifle.  I think it's considered the most accurate AR10 type rifle on the market.

That's just a touch over $1500. Nice rifle though!

I'm not sure what the intro price is going to be, but LaRue is releasing their OBR PredatAR rifle.  It will be due out and they are taking pre-orders right now.
