That's a fair price for a used AR-30 in today's market. AR-10's (.308) will run you about $1200 for an RRA and about $1000 for a DPMS. I think you could do better accuracy-wise with a DPMS or RRA, and have a much lighter and shorter gun. I have a heavy barreled DPMS in .308 that shoots under an inch which is great for a semi-auto. The AR-30 has a published accuracy of 1 moa and I believe they have either a 26" or 28" barrel and weigh 12 lbs. Of course they are bolt action and only have 5 rd. mags. I think you could get a much more accurate bolt action rifle for about the same amount of money from Savage (Mod.12) or Winchester (Mod.70). They may not look as cool as an AR-30, but IMO if one-hole groups is your goal, I would look elsewhere.
