Not what I'd use for a new build but not something I ever had an issue with it. Pretty damn accurate with standard ammo. Again, not knocking your opinion, just curious.
DPMS as a whole. They charge quality prices for substandard gear then refuse to answer the hard questions. They are known for producing low quality products. Wade through the "my DPMS has been flawless through the 200 rounds I fired in the 10 years I've had it" and get to the AARs where some guy showed up to a class w/ a DPMS and it **** the bed the first day.

If money isn't a problem go with a knights armament ar10. This is what the DOE Nuclear curers are using as sniper rifles. I have personally seen these rifles consistently hit targets at 1000 yards. This is also the last company eugein stoner worked for before he passed away. He was the original designer of the ar platform

Sorry it's an SR-25 and they start about 2 grand. They are an extremely accurate and reliable weapon. I know from personal experience. If I could afford one I would get it with out hesitation.

Buckhorn, I can officially say yes to the FN SCAR 17.
However, i can't find any Mags for it anywhere. when I wrote to FN, they said,

HI Gloves,
I apologize for the wait, we are working on increasing production at this time.
Availability, should pick up by the end of the first quarter.
Thank you for your patience."

Just to give you a general reference.

When compared to humping in to a stand with a 6-7 lb bolt action rifle, you definitely notice the AR10's extra weight. It is manageable though.
My bolt rifle weighs about 11 pounds already. 26" bbl long action 25-06. My horse doesn't seem to mind it, never said anything anyway. (Chuckle chuckle.) I'm pretty well set on a .308, I've looked into the 6.8 spc, nothing against it, I just want a bigger one.

Not much for tree stands in Utah, mostly we ride the sagebrush hills... But this isn't a deer rifle anyway.

Mostly I wanna set up my coyote caller and sit 400 yards away and see how many I can call in. I've been looking at getting a .308 for a while, but I got a lot of bolt guns, wanna try one of these. As long as you guys won't tell anyone I'm into this...

I wouldn't touch a DPMS anything.
Do you have a link for this "MaTen reciever sets from Mega?"

I wanna build this with as quality as I can, while saving money were I can. Don't really need the best of everything, but quality. Don't need the quad rail up front or piston driven what-have-yous...
Does that make sense?
