I have been kicking around the 308 AR but cant seem to decide which one to go with any suggestions? Should I wait for the Rock River or is there already really good one avaiable?
I'm looking at a full length and maybe a carbine version.
Thanks,
Mike

I hear less complaints about Rock River than I do DPMS which is still fewer than Armalites....

Hokie, Thats good to hear, I dont know why but I have never been a fan of DPMS. I dont even have a reason just some of their stuff I saw once did not impress me enough to buy it.

That may also be attributed to more Armalites being in circulation than DPMS ... so take that with a grain of salt.

Could it be that there are less complaints about Rock River 308's because they haven't hit the market yet?

I like my DPMS and haven't had a problem yet.

The best?

A custom Armalite AR-10 worked over by someone who knows what they are doing.

The price of the rifle + the price of the work will come in UNDER the price of a KAC.

don't buy the bushmaster-they have discontinued it, but it is still available here and there. they had problems with the rifle you can't rely on them. in fact, I wouldn't buy anything bushmaster makes after my experience with their 308- the way they handled this indicates to me that the company lacks integrity.

If you can afford it KAC's MK11 MOD0 (SR25) I've shot every 308 AR based rifle and hands down it is the best period.

Having said that Armalites are very good too and bang for the buck I would go with them.
But if you will only settle for the best go with the KAC.

IMHO
