ArmaLite 308 Win. Carbine/Green/Black/16" Barrel/Tactical Tw
by Jason B Date Added: Wednesday 09 December, 2009
Buds shipped within a day or two, arrived to my FFL (in Florida) within a week. Received in excellent condition with all advertised accessories, thank you Buds!

As for the rifle itself, WOW! So, I have several AR15s (5.56x45/223) from various manufacturers, as well as several 7.62x51/308 semi's, including the SA M1A Socom16, Remington 742, etc. Having said that, I had an expectation of the AR platform going in, but I have to say that this Armalite AR10 surpassed my expectation and is, in my opinion, the finest shooting x51 rifle I have ever shot.

Respectfully, I have to disagree with my fellow reviewer, and state that the gas operated recoil system on the AR10 is superb, and felt recoil is almost nil. Compared to the Socom16 (both are 16" x51 carbines), the recoil difference is significantly less with the AR10, and in fact, felt recoil with the AR10 is only slightly more than that of the AR15.

This is a great rifle, and comes at a great price from Buds. After shooting the AR10, I'd say that it has definately replaced the M1A as my backup rifle to the R700p in my field kit.

Kudos to Armalite and to Buds!
