Re: 308 AR Style Rifle - POF or SIG?

So I put the Geissele SSA-E trigger in my new Ruger SR-762, and I put a Noveske QD swivel end plate on, and I moved to the Smith Vortex flash hider. How the heck do you get the Ruger flash hider off? It does not have any flats for a wrench. The front has a shape like an AR-15 bolt face inside. Is th...

Re: 308 AR Style Rifle - POF or SIG?

Picked up the Ruger SR-762 yesterday. My initial impression is very positive. Once I gather all the parts to mount my scope and get it on, I will put in some range time and report back. I also have a Geissele SSA-E trigger and a Smith Vortex flash hider (with lugs for a can) to install on it. Pics w...

Re: 308 AR Style Rifle - POF or SIG?

They dropped the price to $1,575, but are now sold out. Cool thing is that they give you a 30 day low price guarantee, so I will get a refund of the $52.

Re: 308 AR Style Rifle - POF or SIG?

Well, I did it. I bought the Ruger for $1,627 shipped.

If you guys want one at that price, here is the link:

Ruger SR762 308 16 BLK 20R

I guess I can quit researching this purchase now. :D

And... it was the cheapest choice, which will make my wife happy.

Thanks for your input.

I have a couple of boxes of that Ranger T +P stuff. I haven't shot any because I didn't know if I can shoot +P through my SIG P220.

It looks like wicked stuff.

I am in my research phase of purchasing a 308 AR style rifle.
