I agree, there is something about rotating bolt, gas operated actions that I can't get enough of, but if you are really feeling traditional, get an M1!

You can get one from CMP in 308 with a brand new Criterion barrel & a 40's/50's Springfield Armory receiver that's rebuilt to the same specs that the military used for armory rebuilds for under a grand

Yes, you can have a Garand for a grand!! (sorry, couldn't resist )

I'm seeing Lake City 7.6x51 ball for around 77/round on a regualr basis. If you figure you can reload each case 4times and can cover your powder, primer and bullet for 45 (which is very reasonable, even at today's component costs); your average cost per round is right at 50!!

..... hows that for rationalization??

It's nice. Would rather see the XGI make a second coming. For the asking price I'll stick with my m14 build now that I finally found a receiver.

I too would like to see the XGI go into production, but I also welcome another 308 AR platform. Just the other night I fondled an LWRC 308 REPR a friend brought over, it was a nice rifle but at $3100 I couldn't bring myself to buy one. I would rather spend the same price for a Barrett 99 in 50bmg. So even though I have more AR platform rifles than any other types, and many in 308 I can see gravitating toward getting a SR762. Truth is ever since I sold my Lr308 carbine I built I have been wanting another AR 308 carbine, and maybe this will be the first non direct impingement AR I have purchased. Since I already load for .308 religiously, this addition will be no problem to feed. I will however wait till the price comes down a bit from the sure to be high premiums the dealers are gonna ask for them when they hit the shelves. I do find the SR762 interesting, and on my want list.

Going to order one as soon as I can. I'm thinking my dealer will bring it in around $1800.

If they produce a model that's acceptable in Massachusetts!

With the inconsistency in Ruger's quality control, I don't think spending close to $2000.00on something that may or may not work properly is a gamble.

WTF is that supposed to mean? not many of the hundreds of thousands SR556's have had issues.

sure some super high production pocket plastic guns might have some issues when you consider how cheap they are and how many they are pumping out a day you will have some problems.

Rugers QC and CS is top notch. not sure where your blank statement comes from

I am on the band wagon for one. Ever since I sold my Lr308AP4 carbine I had a few years back, I have been thinking of replacing it with another AR style 308 carbine, the SR762 seems to fit the bill. I am just curious how its weight is balanced, and hope its not muzzle heavy. My 16" Lr308 with a HBAR barrel and 13.8" Troy MRF rail was muzzle heavy, and not a joy to carry around. It will however be the first piston gun in my AR collection, will give it a whirl. Since I already have the 24" LR308, and already have 10+ P-mags that will work with it, so its a no brainer.

I was pretty excited about it when I heard the news but it's over a pound heavier than the M&P10 and the street price is $400 to $600 higher. I really love my Ruger's but there's no way I'd pick the SR762 over the M&P10 unless they have some super ability above and beyond the other AR10 style rifles already on the market.

Seems like Ruger should have designed something that came in under the M&P to swing the pendulum away from them. I'm super curious to see how they perform against the others.

Little pricey it seems, but I would be tempted, might go nice with my Mini-30 Tactical.
