Well I have the bug for another AR 10, sold my last one years ago during one of the big scares during the Obama years (made some real good money on it too). Looking for some suggestions on what is the best bang for your buck these days with an AR 10(pun intended). Let me know what yall think......

G2 Recon by dpms, tube is chunky but a Midwest Industries makes a slick replacement.

Diamondback DT-10 or Delton Echo 308 are your best "bang for the buck"

I didn't throw in PSA because that's so dern cheap I gotta think you get what you pay for I.e. Too good to be true ....

Thanks for the input. My previous AR-10 was an LMT, and it was a true shooter. Never failed to run anything I ran in it. could I expect somewhat same performance out of the ones listed above? Not looking to shoot 1000 yards with it, but would like to stretch it out past 600. Mostly looking for reliability.

went 5/5 on a 12" steel plate with my Grendel last week, and watching the trace through the scope was fairly easy once I got my [censored] together and got behind the gun right. felt like I was shooting a BB gun too. you should try it out before you buy an AR-10. I only say this because I know you have one, haha.

Very true! Just wanting a more conventional round to bang away with. you know like a ranch gun that will run and parts and ammo are readily available. We have had some pretty unnerving events happen recently at the ranch, so one that can be kept in the ranger when we are out driving around and not be overly concerned with being abused.

1. Regularly clean, the upper and bolt.
2. Make sure plenty of oil is reapplied, and keep it that way.

I LOVE my Wilson Combat AR10...
I rarely clean or lube mine, but they also all run coated BCGs.

I have the 18" Fluted (scope is now a Steiner 3-15)
It's a shooter for sure...

Charles,

Let me shoot it, and it will fail to eject, or fail to go into battery.


Guarantee it. grin

I like my DPMS Recon but it's a G1. Supposedly the new ones come with the Geissele SSA trigger. Mine didn't, so I dropped in one ($200 ouch.)
