Dose anyone here have one? Was it worth every penny? lol .I really want to get one cause all the reviews on them say they are worth every penny. The iron sights are accurate strait out of the box, can shoot 7.62 or .308 rounds, recoil is not bad for a powerful rifle, weights around 9 pounds. The more I read up on them the more I really want one.

The main reason that is stopping me from buying one is the hefty price tag of any were from 1,300 to 1,600 and higher. An I read some were that they were kinda of hard to come by at some FFL dealers. I rather have the long barrel version instead of the short 16 inch socom version.

Thanks in advance for all input.

Awesome rifle but a little heavy. I have always loved this style of rifle and love shooting it especially if you like iron sights. Most are set up as a scout rifle if you have a scope on it which really limits the choices for optics, but Leopold makes a great option for you.
Some of the newer models has a different type mount allowing a standard eye relief scope to be mounted, so this is just something to look for depending on likes and preference.

Other options for the same round is a AR-10 (AR-15 based) and a Saiga (AK-47 based).

Is yours in walnut or plastic? My scout came in plastic and accuracy was dissapointing. Put in a Boyds heavy walnut, glass bedded, shimmed, torqued to spec., sadlak piston and guiderod etc...and it's freaking amazing now. 100% hits on a playing card sized piece of steel at 200, using surplus ammo. The more I mess with my AR, the more I appreciate my mini 14 and M1a...they just run. Accurized my mini 14 as well, gas, bedded, accu strut, polished trigger, and it is pretty darn good at distance now.
