The ArmaLite is my second EBR, this BCM EAG in .223/5.56 was my first.

Thanks for the pics. What I'm happiest to see is that Armalite changed their initial, and stupid, decision to offer only a 3-year warranty on this model, and instead now list it as a lifetime warranty like ALL of their other Armalite-branded ARs (both .223 and .308):

Good decision on their part, and rekindles my interest. Armalite's .308 has always seemed like a good rifle, but the sole-source and relatively expensive mags (extremely expensive up until about 1-2 years ago) kept me from buying one.

I am an old grunt from early 70s, my Armalites are in the A2 configuration and can still shoot as good with the irons as with optics, like a bicycle, you never forget and I ruined a few peoples days in my time with itl

Congrats! You'll love the rifle.

I personally prefer the Gen II Armalite mags because they offer a 25 rounder, but if .308 P-mags ever become available in 25 (or 30) round configurations, I may have to swap out my lower (or just buy another AR-10).

I also questioned the 3 year warranty on the SR-25 style rifle. 3 years is 2 years longer than the rest of the 7.62 AR crowd, but not the lifetime warranty of the current AR-10.

I wanted one since they announced at SHOT but I've decided to stay with the M14 style magazines. I have a dozen of those mags already, why change just to use plastic mags.

Good to see the finally got with the times. I'd dare say that the PMag in .308 is the default magazine for the .308 AR at this point.

I just wish they would make their 20" CL rifles with that mag setup. I personally don't have much use for a 16" 7.62x51.

Here it is in a 20 inch configuration 1MOA, but I don't have a use for a $2700+ 7.62 that weighs
12 lbs.

My top end was $1500 for the rifle and by the time I get some sights and glass I will be at 2K+. That was my upper limit buying something that would come in under 8Lbs, 20 rounds, 7.62 power, some magazine flexibility and out to 300 yards plus with 3-4 inch accuracy.

If I get another 7.62/.308 I'll probably do a Savage Scout configuration.
