You might want to do some research on larue obr problems before you plop down a load of money for one. I know 2 guys with obr's and both have problems.

I guess I got lucky with mines never had a single failure but then again I've only shot 50 rds or so...friend of mine was having all kinds of problems with his obr from scratch to deform brass but not any reliability problems...larue, having great customer service, practically rebuilt his entire gun...

May not be the best, but I love my POF 308.

I've been looking to get a Semi auto 308 too.  About a month ago, I checked out Tony at The Gun Source and he really praised on the PWS MK216 that he had on display on his glass counter.  He even mentioned that he just received a new one and was selling it for $3999.
What really got me thinking on buying that rifle is what he mentioned about it having a long stroke piston similar to the AK's being very reliable.
Anyone here own a PWS MK216?  Reviews? Thoughts?

I've got the PWS 216.  Bought from tony in December .  I really like the gun.  Very accurate and well constructed long stroke piston gun  The only concern I have is that gas pistons are proprietary and its very expensive to keep a spare around in case of breakage.  Mine has a tight chamber and worked better with 308 ammo.   I paid 2700 for mine in December.

I don't own one but a friend does.

He likes it a lot but that flimsy looking piston rod concerns me.

I wish they copied the AK beefy piston rod

The AK is really just an M1 Garand with the action flipped upside down.  So if you really want a long piston .308, a Special Grade M1 from the CMP is $995 plus $24.95 shipping. 

M1 Garand, CMP Special (.308)
Allow 30-60 days for delivery.
M1 Garand Springfield Armory receiver. This is a completely refurbished rifle consisting of an original M1 Garand Springfield receiver, new production Criterion barrel, new production American Walnut stock and handguards, and new web sling. Receiver and most other parts are refinished USGI, but some parts may be new manufacture. A .308 spacer block is installed to prevent the loading of a .30-06 round into the chamber.

I would say everyone has different taste buds . Also comes down to luck of the draw I I seen a REPR shoot an half  moa then diff gun same shooter same box match ammo shoot an inch moa . KAC SR25 ec 16" got my vote but some don't care for it . I say when its time to buy do some homework , go to the range and see what guys got . You might get lucky and have a guy talk to you about the rifle you like dang he might even let you send some down range .
Fast is fine , accuracy is final

Yeah that's the one thing that scares me about the PWS offering.  You step on the op rod and I think your rifle is done for.

Just to be clear,  I like the mk216.  Alot.  It's one of my favorite guns to shoot.   This is a very innovative product that has recieved rave reviews on the net from people much more knowelgable than I.  Do some google searching.   

My only complaint is that unlike DI ar15s, these piston systems are not standardized and have expensive parts which are vendor specific.  This is not specific to PWS.

I do think he is massively overcharging.  Check out the prices on pws's web site - it's msrp is $2600.00.

Anybody out there own one of those new M&P10? Curious to hear feedback on them. Looks to be a pretty solid rifle for the price.

Of the 3 semi-a 308 rifles I've owned (M1A EBR, AR-10, SCAR), the SCAR is a mile ahead of the others as a modern battle 308. Its lightweight, heavy duty, and shoots extremely well. The ONLY downside I can think of is its proprietary mags that are near impossible to buy at MSRP. I plan on getting a lower that accepts AR-10 patterned mags eventually.

I did this at 100 yards with my AK, lets see your 100 yard "91" group.
