I went to gun store and saw a new Armalite in 308. It has Flash suppressor, detachable mag and has pistol grip. This does not have carrying handle. It has an upper with serations on the top which looks like it can mount a scope or whatever. My question is this, This seems to be a post ban, but how can it have 3 evil features????

Are you sure it was a flash suppressor? Armalite puts post-ban legal "recoil checks" (aka muzzle brakes) on a lot of their factory rifles. The recoil checks are permanently attached instead of threaded on, allowing the semi auto rifle with detachable mag to have its one evil feature - the pistol grip.

Yea, I see your point. It was probably a muzzle brake, now that I think about it.... Is this gun, made by Armalite, any good???

They are excellent for those who want an AR in 308.

I have an AR10A4, it's the full size with stainless barrel and flat top receiver. Armalite makes iron sights for it; carry handle and front sight post, sold separately. I have both iron sights and a scope for mine. I love my ar10. It is very accurate, and tons of fun to shoot. The recoil is very small, not much more than the ar15. I highly recommend this rifle to anyone looking to bring a little variety to the range. Many law enforcement and military groups are now adopting the ar10(sr25) for sniper use.

Chuck, I tried to find the AR10 section you spoke about and I don't get any hits. Is it on the AR15 website?
