I know the Armalite AR-10 is very well respected but I was wondering what other options there are. I have seen the Oly in .308 but haven't heard any feedback on them. What magazines are used in the non Armalite guns? Should I just wait and save for the Armalite?? Thanks....

Oly .308? To my knowledge Armalite, Knights, DPMS and ASA make (or made in the recent past) .308 ARs. The Knights SR25 is expensive and good enough for the military. The DPMS is a good price and is designed as more of a target rifle. The Armalite is good quality, uses M1A/M14 mags and is available in a variety of different configurations.

I was looking at a armalite AR-10. Nice gun. However I decided to go with a DSA FAL. If your open to other 308 rifles I'd check them out.

Thanks for the replies. It looks like I'll save my pennies for the Armalite. M-14 mags aren't the cheapest around thses days but they are a hell of a lot less than $125!!! As for the FAL... I'm in the process of building a primo STG-58 kit on a DSA Type I receiver. I have plenty of FAL mags so it's too bad about the ASA.

Does the Eagle Arms AR-10 also use M-14 mags? Are there any major differances between the Armalite and Eagle Arms rifles other than price?

Armalite-Lifetime warranty Eagle Arms-one year warranty Armalite has more options for barrel type. Eagle Arms does not offer a chrome lined barrel or a muzzle brake. Both brands use the same magazines.
