the ones ive seen are tack drivers but they are hamstrung using fnfal pattern mags. so reliability is iffy because of magazines if your not buying brand new ones straight from rra. the guns ive seen using new production rra mags run with no issues.

however i would opt for something using sr25 pattern

I'll bet they're like many RRA products: ACCURATE and HEAVY. Everyone likes accuracy, not everyone loves heavy.

I really like the FN Scar 17s. They're close to $3K, but very good rifles. Under $2K, I'd go with a Springfield M1A ($1200-2000). On the cheap, DPMS actually offers some really solid AR-10 rifles for $900-1500. They'll take basic PMags, and tend to fit with lots of good, affordable AR10 accessories. I'm a bigger fan of DPMS's 308 rifles than their 5.56. For the price, they offer a pretty good product.

I just looked up the RRA Lar 308 predator an it weighs 8.6 pounds with a 20 in ss barrel. That's pretty damn light for a ar10 platform.

Not bad at all if accurate.

Many RRA's are downright obese. I had a 16" ML Elite Operator (5.56)...it was near 10lbs without optics or any additions...and that's exactly why I sold it before it cycled a single round on my behalf. No kidding. Similar, arguably superior rifles weigh right near 7lbs.

I've been very happy with my DPMS 260H. It's accurate as hell,and has been 100% reliable since I put the proper buffer spring in it.
The factory trigger is crap,but I always swap them out for a good one anyway.

Yeah Tx! That Rifle looks hot! And $1200 list isn't bad, maybe 1600 for everything, some extra mags and good optics and a sling,.. And there is your AR pattern Battle Marksman Rifle...

Mine is one of the early examples with a 1:11.25 twist barrel and no forward assist.

Production AR 10? - AR-15 Discussion

Here is a typical 10 round group produced at 100 yards. As you can see ATC 0.413 MOA, even with the flyer. The flyer is my own. This group was done with a cold bore before any sight-in adjustments were made. As the barrel heats up the POI shifts about 0.25MOA.

Really liked your AR10. I have always admired this rifle.
