ARMALITE, you can prolly get one complete from them for that kinda coin. Haven't looked at the catalog/website in a while, but it's where I'd start. I like warranties when I'm buying my go to goodies. jmtcw, 44.

$1800 will get you a very good .308. No glass but a great rifle.

Mega Ma-Ten upper/lower....$600
AR Performance Barrel.... $225
BCG $300

So right there you have $1125. Pick a stock assembly,rail and misc. parts for under $675 to  complete your build and you'll have met your budget.

another vote for the maten - but take a good look at the criterion barrels at fulton

I got the lightweight 18.5 inch chrome lined one and it's sub-moa - it's everything I want in a barrel

I have about $1300 in my LR-308 that shoots 1/2 MOA.  DPMS upper/lower, LPK, stock, BCG, FF tube.  Criterion 20" barrel by Krieger via Fulton Armory.  BSA 4-14x44 FFP mildot.

With the $$ figure you've noted, you could get nicer glass than I did, but that BSA is not bad.
