I have been wanting an AR10 for sometime but nothing really grabbed me until I saw the Wilson Combat 308 announcement.  Having 2 of their rifles and a pistol I knew the quality and customer service were first class.

Ironically, I got into the 6.8 because the AR10s were all boat anchors.   When I picked this up at the Silencer Shop several guys were checking it out and all commented on how light it was.

Going to hit the range today and stretch it’s  legs!

It feels very light (for an AR10) and very balanced, even with the very light buttstock on it.

I took it out over the weekend for a quick function test. I wasn’t too concerned about group size as it was cold and windy and I am not 100% sure this is the optic I will run long term. Initial shots were within 3/4″ with Barnes 168 Vortex.

I have a Mark6 3-18 showing up today I plan to try on it as well. I am running my Templar Tactical Archangel on it though it might get switched out for the Nemesis30 which is much shorter, just not as quiet.

I hope to get it on Wednesday to stretch it’s legs to 1K and then hunt for 4 days starting Friday. I will also get a chance to do some real group testing with various ammo.
The gun ran 100% with and without the can and there was zero gas blowback in my face. I would say they got the gas port and buffer setup tuned right.
