There are no standards for ar10 type rifles so you really have to look hard to be sure what your getting fits your intended usage.
My complaint with the 901 is the short 16inch barrel. I just dont think its really enough running room for a 308. Just my pref tho lots like the shorties
Jon, I have a 16 inch barrel on my 7.62 DPMS LR 308 AP4.
Like you, I was a bit chary about a barrel that short in 7.62. But after using it, I am sold on 16 inch barrels. Given the choice, I would probably opt for 18 inches, but the 16 works very well.
Actually, I'm pretty well satisfied with the little DPMS, but I guess I just want the Colt for "snob appeal."
I guess that makes me a "bad person" but what the hell!
