I too forgot about your report Watchman.   I obviously love mine as you do yours.  Wish mine had been free, but then I got the 1911 so I can't complain.

I only wish I had easier access to outdoor range to spend more time with my rifles.

What kind of magazine does it use?  Is it propitiatory or FAL or AR-10?

Tommy,

Unfortunately, they use a proprietary magazine.  Prices have come down some as more of them are in circulation.   A future project may be to look at M14, AR10 and FAL mags to see if they can be adapted.

I always try to find some interesting discussions regarding AR308. Actually I am finding some 308 ar manufacturers online. I will appreciate it if you will share some 308 ar manufacturers here in your thread. Thank you.

Sorry, goms,  had a busy weekend.

The original "AR" was actually the AR-10 in 7.62 (.308).  The AR-15 (5.56) came later.  The .308 AR platform will shoot a whole family of calibers based on the .308 case.  It includes besides the .308Win, the 260Rem (6.5mm), the 7mm-08 and the .338Fed (~8mm).  (There may even be a 6mm and a 5.5mm caliber, too.)  All use the same case, just necked up or down to the caliber.   That means only the barrel (upper) needs to be changed.  The lower and the magazines all work with all the calibers.

There are numerous manufacturers of this style.  Here are a few links.

In other "tactical" designs of semi-autos that shoot the .308, (besides the FN FNAR) there's the venerable FN FAL.   Most widely adopted auto rifle.  I think the list of countries runs around 90 that have adopted it at one time or another.  There are many variations, many manufacturers (mostly overseas).   Here's the Wikipedia link about it.

And a current US manufacturer.

http://www.dsarms.com/FAL-SA58%20Rifles/products/8/

Last, but certainly not least is the US M1A1, the semi-auto of the M14.  It comes in varying models, like  SOCOM, scout/tanker, sniper and match version.  I only separate it out from the others because it is unique from the AR and FN platforms.   The M1A is  available in traditional wood stock and in tacti-cool configurations.  Here's a couple of links

http://www.selwayarmory.com/sfsocomm1arifle308bluedblackcompositestock.aspx
http://www.fulton-armory.com/M14-Rifles.aspx


There are many more manufactures but I hope that gets you started.    Alf



If any of the links don't work, just go to the basic domain (xxxxxxxx.com) and drill down for the appropriate product.

Another thing Goms, don't be fooled by the designation.
The FN has no relation to the Armalite "AR" design.
The letters stand for Fabrique Nationale Automatic Rifle.
It is supposedly a 21st century up grade of the BAR.

But man oh man the original.... my Grandfather returned from WWII with one, and two Gov't 1911's...He knew how to get around the " turn back in" policy....and they were stolen from his Texas apt. in the 70's....



Wish I could turn back the hands of time.

Uh, guys? Goms is a spamming troll. Post count =1, and hyperlink in the signature, classic symbols of a single posting troll.
