Itís got a savage barrel which is a plus, but I donít see anything special at all otherwise. And their lower has a little different shape to it that means finding a grip that fits and looks right may be a challenge. The use BLACKHAWK! furniture which is kind of cheap, Walmart quality furniture. For the money you can do a lot better I think.

Thank you sir. Have a bunch of savage bolts. Looking to upgrade loaner guns to more horsepower. Hard to find inexpensive 10, fairly light, that functions reliably. Thought about a mutant too, but never run one myself for any extended time.

Iím certainly not an AR guru, and even less so and AR10 guru, but Iíd buy a PSA10 and put a premium barrel on it.

I have the MSR-10 hunter .308.

- It is much lighter than my old DPMS 308-T.
- I replaced the grip with a hogue. It fit without modifications.
- Wasnít happy with the trigger, I replaced it with a Geissele.
- Comes with adjustable gas block. I understand this can be useful when using a suppressor? (Not an expert here)

Only put about 60-80 rounds through it, but so far Iím happy with it. I was looking for something I could just open the box and shoot.
