New AR 10 any good?????????

I had to do it with the outcome of the election. So i went and bought a Rock river predator AR 10 in 308 20" ss barrel

I have the same rifle in ar15 223 and it shoots great just haven't shot the 308 yet i
hope it a shooter. i was looking for the DPMS 308 long range but this is what they had so its mine now. good r bad

Yup, That's how I felt, too!

Good or bad. I now have a POF 16" .308. I looked up lots of reviews, it's sad when they're so mixed. From a Small Arms Tech. point of view I went with the details of the designs to make my pick.

DI is great (I used to swear otherwise) in the AR-15s, and that's what most of the parts are designed for.

Seeing how AR-10s aren't so standardised in the industry, I let my dream of a Piston System AR win out.

I can hardly wait to see how it shoots!!!

Rock River Arms makes a good product including their triggers. Not a Timney but all right for a stock system. Ive had the Classic 20" DPMS for a couple of years now, its a very good rifle. Is that a SS bull barrel? If so I bet its heavy because my gun with the hbar barrel is heavy enough.

If you bought a rock river arms rifle, that was money well spent. enjoy it well.
I currently on a predator pursuit 20" my self. I absolutely love it. I'm putting back my pennies to acquire a 308 semi auto myself.

Re: New AR 10 any good?????????

Well finally a range report. After trying for the last 3 weeks to get out and shoot my ar 10 i got a chance this pasted weekend. I stop by and bought a cheap box of monarch 308 150gr just to give it a try. it took 2 rounds to get it zero so #3-5 round ever fired ended up in a group i would have been really happy shooting with my custom bolt action 308. i could cove them up with a dime so after being really happy with this group i took it out to 300 n rang the hell out of my 300yrd gong. so my friend had to give it a try he shot a 3 shot group a little bigger but i could still cover it up with a nickel he then drilled the 300yrd gong 5 straight shoots. so i think i made a great buy. the rifle is a rock river ar 10 predator 20" ss barrel. i can't wait till i get to try some handloads in it.
so for for me i'm three for three 2- ar15 1- ar10 all shoot great rock river rocks!!!!!!
