Default Remington R 25 any opinions?

I was looking at the R 25 for a tactical long gun, but dont have any first hand experience with it so any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Fairly expensive but looks cool. I haven't shot one so can't give first hand experience other than holding one in the LGS.

I imagine the quality is on the level of Bushmaster and DPMS since they're all under the same ownership.

Thank you for the input, I agree its a little on the pricey side, I do like that you can get it in .308 I'm always open to suggestions if anyone knows of any more economical tactical long guns.

Its a bushmaster with a remington stamp from what i understand remington isnt making them. I could be dead wrong but i think they just jack the price of the bushmaster/dpms up a bit with the remington label

Yeah, that's what I was thinking, basically a DPMS 308. Nice looking rifle though.

It's a decent package. One came through the shop awhile back. Factory Black Hills Ammo turned in MOA groups out to 300 yards.

For a factory stick it does what it was designed to do. No doubt you are paying a bit more for teh Remington name, but if you don't have the time/will/desire to build one yourself you could do worse.

I bought an r-25 in .308 in 2010. Experimented with several different rounds, magazines, and scopes/mounts. The DPMS magazines fed the best, but still had multiple misfeeds with all cartridges. To top it off, it wouldn't shoot a decent group at all. I sent it back to Remington Arms two months ago and haven't heard anything except "the issue is unresolved". My buddy got a regular old economy model dpms in .308 and is loving it. R-25...very fussy!!!

I looked at them when I was shopping for a 7.62 AR. They seemed like good rifles, and I've had good luck with Remington in the past. That said, I ended up buying an ArmaLite because that was the name that kept popping up when I was talking to AR guys about .308/7.62 rifles.

Never had a malfunction of any kind.

Just something to think about...

Yeah the ArmaLite is more expensive, including magazines, but I like them and they do say AR-10!
