Large frame AR10s are pretty much dead.

Really ? You think overpaying for something makes it better ? I have had no malfunctions. My rifle has a Slr adjustable gas block I tune for my suppressor. At $2700, Daniel can't even put put an adjustable gas block on. Yet, you wonder why there have been many complaints with that rifle shooting suppressed. Your right, guess I'm stupid. Not stupid enough to live in Illinois, ��

At the prices they are charging it is a no brainer to pick one up if you want a .308 AR. the PA10 is compatible with AR15 FCG's, stocks, grips, and a few other things. What's not to like?

Holy shit! Nice shooting!

The trick is, of rifles like larger frame .308's are being phased out, just buy some spare parts. Problem solved. Personally, I like AR15's for what they are and don't really want a .308 in that size, so I'll stick with the big ones

Thank you.

I don't know that large frame guns are/aren't being "phased out", perhaps small frames will be more successful in the future long term perhaps not it remains to be seen. I do know that I seriously enjoy my large frames. I agree with your notion that at current prices rifles like the pa10 are a wicked deal. I find it doubtful that parts will one day become unavailable given as many guns as are out there. I also seriously doubt that PSA is liquidating large frame stock due to anything other than the way the current political climate has dropped prices on all things gun.

That is some bad ass shooting and setup. How is that S&B scope treating you? EuroOptic is having some really good sales on those from time to time.
@BTW, I just installed Mega Arms barrel on my Mega Arms upper (.308). Never used them before for barrels, but it shoots around.8 moa with M118LR, so not bad.

Thanks. Your right, can was $1200 after tax stamp. I'm just glad I got the can back when it only took 4 months. Makes a .308 feel like a 5.56. Really soft shooting.

Thanks I'm very happy with the setup. S&B makes a great scope for sure I actually got it from EuroOptic for a good price as it was previously a demo but came looking mint. It's a 3-27x and has an H59 which is awesome for the bench or being very precise with center dot. With the H59 only certain points of the reticle illuminate but with a 9x magnification range and FFP the reticle becomes wicked fine at low power and the illuminated portions of the h59 disappear. Thus with the H59 at least it's probably best to piggyback RDS even with 3x on the low. The overall feel of the scope and the glass quality are impressive. I like the scope I'd probably buy it again or possibly a MK8 if I could do it over but I'm not sure I can justify the extra $$ of the S&B 3-27x over the S&B 5-25x though. Thanks for the report on the Mega barrel they're still pretty new and I haven't heard much feedback on them.

My two PSA ar-10s cost me a whoping, total otd with transfer 470 each. 470 because I don't need a rail, because I am not tacti-cool.

You've all seen my shooting. So non-free float, non modfied triggers. I do just fine. 470 each for a 308 AR with a GOOD barrel (anything better than 1.75 MOA is good for the dollar cost I am talking here).

Yeah, just don't really see the dollar cost average working out to favor anything more expensive.

My AR 10s cost exactly the same as my AR-15 from Ruger. Those dollar cost averages of performance to the dollar beats the hell out of even the supreme "quality" of Daniel Defence. Your dollar cost average just doesn't support the boutique. Esp because I can fully upgrade mine to have similar features and practical real world accuracy and durability (upgrade parts) and still come in well under the cost of anything else.

At this point my resale point is close to 100 bucks more if I go for the cost PSA is selling the complete AR-10s for. Next panic I can double and probably triple my investment if I so chose.

Just ordered my PSA ar-10 yesterday. Less than $500 total. Can't wait to shoot it. I'll probably buy another 1 or 2 if it shoots decent. Reminds me of the saiga 308 when it was cheap.

Bolt catch travel only issue Ive had. Some odd stuff pops up now and then Ive read, wrong recoil spring, buffer, extractor O-rings, all simple to fix.

It'll come in bone dry, soak it overnight lol.....

I agree to an extent. If you put a can on it you'd most likely have problems.

That factoid is true on any rifle without an adjustable gas system. Which is something I could buy aftermarket, cheap, and install, if need be.

It isn't particular to any PSA or other rifle but any rifle w/o the ability to adjust the given gas system.

My ACE can't be canned easily and it cost over 1500. The reason is lack of adjustable gas system.

It would be more accurate to assign risk to "lighter" build components that people going neolithic on their weapons would most certainly break. That is usually where the cost rubber meets the road. As long as you don't Cave Man School of Firearms handling your weapon chances of breakage are low.

That's where you see higher cost weapons outperforming and being advantageous. One would be hard pressed to "break" the ACE, or a high end DD or a Colt. Yea old rule of equipment design when factoring use by soldiers: expect it to be used by a caveman and utilized for all the wrong purposes and abused in any and all ways possible. Using it an impromptu chin up bar in Iraq is right out for the PSA AR-10. Same goes for using it as a chair or as a pry bar or the myriad of other random purposes applied to weapons and gear in a theater of war by GIs.
