Best off the shelf AR-10 in .308

Hey there, my son is lookin to pick up an AR in .308. He originally was looking at a custom, but figured it was worth checking out the factory stuff as well. Opinions on best (most accurate) out there in .308 are appreciated. Anyone with a super accurate custom please chime in as well. Thanks

A GAP-10 from GA Precision is as good as it gets, and they are less expensive than some of the big names. They start at around $2,500 before options, and you can customize them and change calibers if you want. Mine shoots under 1/2 MOA, which is stellar for a gas gun.

Larue OBR is what has the tactical shooting comunity a buzz as of late. The two NCOs that won this years SOCOM sniper challenge both shot the OBR.

The new Larue Predator with the heavy barrel is an option as well.

LMTs MWS is another great option with the abilty to switch calibers and is the one I am getting.

I'm not into GAP dont drink the cool aid nothing wrong with them I'm sure, but no need to wait on a custom build in an AR platform.

Koolaid or not, the GAP-10 is the least expensive of all of those listed, GAP's customer service is fantastic, and it WILL shoot bugholes! The fact that you get to choose which caliber, barrel length, rail length, color, stock, fluting, break, etc. is pretty cool as well. I wanted a Geissele trigger and Ergo grip on mine, so I sent them the parts and they installed the stuff before the rifle shipped. I think it took a month or so from start to finish. OR you could by one off the shelf from somewhere else for more money and get what you get. No brainer.

GA precsion list there rifle at 2600$ plus, a quick google search for an LMT MWS shows prices around 2300$ and the Larue predator is 2495$ so I dont know were you got you info. But they are both less money than the cool aid.
