    So today I was offered a new Savage Model 10FCP in .308 for my YHM complete lower, BCM 14.5" barrel with pinned muzzle device and BCM lo pro gas block. Would this be a decent trade? I can get another AR fairly easily whenever

    If you don't have another complete rifle, don't do it :eek: just my .02 cents

    What stock does the 10FCP have?
    There are 3 models that I know of,the Cabelas exclusive has a Choate tactical stock,and retails for around $800. The factory offers them in two different stocks,a H&S Precision,and a McMillan.The H&S goes for around $1000,and the McMillan is around $1200.
    Any of these rifles will shoot circles around your AR,all day long.
    I'd do the trade in a heart beat!

    I'm not sure yet, waiting on an email back. I'm hoping its the SR version with the detachable 10 round mag

    Not in the current climate, that AR is worth more, maybe if he has some cash to boot.

    It's not a full AR. It's just a full lower with barrel, gas block and flash hider. It still needs a bcg, gas tube, upper and hand guard

    My bad, if I already had another AR, or knew for a fact that i could get another, I would probably do it

    I'd definitely get the other AR first if a truly fair price and trade the parts for the rifle IF it is one you truly want. You're not gonna complete your AR soon and the buyer sounds like he can tomorrow. YHM and BCM are fine makers but who wants a 14.5" barrel with carbine-length gas-system anyway (except that maybe a bayo fits to it)...

    It's the mid length gas system on the barrel. That's all I ever run

    Excellent -- that'd make my choice one step harder. So, which Savage model is it -- the one with the removeable mag you prefer, and what're you gonna do man!?

    Sorry for the late response! It is the model 10 heavy barrel basic model with a fixed 16 powered scope, bipod, and 200 rounds of brown bear. I made the trade with my BCM barrel, lower and 100 rounds of .223 and two mags. I'll post pictures as soon as I get home
