- Awesome Rifle (review by J on 12/7/2015)
This rifle exceeds expectations. Mine is shooting sub moa with a variety of ammunition, even some cheaper rounds. Keeping the barrel cool it is regularly shooting 5 round at 1/2 moa @ 100 yards with Federal Gold MM 168gr. Surprisingly I also got 9/16"-1" groups with federal xm80. Seemed like luck but then I repeated it with three more groups, taking 3 minute breaks between shot groups to let the barrel cool and the holes never wandered more than 1 moa. This is my first semi automatic .308 so I don't have much to compare it to, but I feel armalite did a great job with this gun. The adjustable gas block is sweet. I have it cranked down to just enough to lock the bolt back, but I have yet to have a single FTF feeding it a large range of ammo from 149gr to 180gr. I have shoot 200 rounds thus far so not a ton, but thus far, flawless.
I followed the match barrel break in procedure prescribed in the manual, which took some time for sure. I have no clue if this method is necessary but I must say the gun is shooting better than I thought a thin profile barrel was capable. The Timney trigger definitely helps!
The LUTH arms butt stock is awesome, totally solid and light, maybe a little funny looking, but form follows function. I have yet to start playing with the adjustable comp, so have no feedback in that department. But recoil is light. The first time I shot it I could not believe it is 308, however with the comp it is loud.
I would definitely recommend this rifle, for the price I cannot imagine better performance.
Center Fire is awesome as well, shipping the gun fast. Ordered on Sunday and they shipped Monday morning!! CenterfireGuns has my business for sure!!
- Work of Art (review by Opus on 10/13/2015)
5 stars to CenterfireGuns for their order processing and delivery! I ordered on a Sunday and was shooting the following Saturday.
This rifle is a work of engineering art! After cleaning, lubricating and mounting a scope it was off to the range. The gas return is adjustable for the load you're using it comes from the factory set for a wide range of ammo. I ran 147 gr. FMJ; 168 gr BTHP and some 175 gr HPBT to break it in and didn't experience any malfunctions. The supplied Pmag functioned with 2 rds or 24 rds. I'm still fiddling with the adjustable butt-stock which I expected. The muzzle break works great making this rifle a pleasure to shoot. I read about how to tune this to my shooting style and loads; which I plan on doing at a later date.
All in all I couldn't be happier with my purchase.
