    For reference you could look at the DPMS LR-308 or Armalites AR-10 both are relatively the same, depending on configuration. I purchased a DPMS LR-308C NIB from a dealer on Gunbroker last month for $949 shipped with 2) 19rd mags, hard case, DPMS catalog, cleaning kit for butt stock carry, and a nylon sling. I also purchased 10) 19rd mags from a different dealer for $299.00 shipped.

    Rock River Arms is finally shipping their LAR-8 (which uses inexpensive FAL mags)...

    Currently, they're shipping 16inch mid-length flattops...

    Other models to follow shortly...

    DPMS is a good choice.

    Does anyone make an AR10 in camo?

    I don't know what you mean by "outrageous price", that title I believe would cover almost any firearm for sale today. ( not to mention motor fuel)
    However DPMS makes a fine and extremely accurate .308 AR style rifle. Beginning prices run around $1000.00. By the time you are finished with the options such as upgraded trigger, cryo barrel, spare mags etc you are spending a nice pile of $. The results however are superb! My LR 308B (18inch bull barrel) with JP trigger & cryo barrel with good ammo is consistently a sub moa shooter & has been totally reliable, soft recoil & great ergonometrics. It also has the beneficial side affect of causing gun hating wusses to wet their pants in fear and loathing when they see it.)
