    Springfield's politics aside, yeah, pretty good gun from what I've seen around the web.

    You should look at some of the new ones they are coming out with. The Saint Victor pistol looks really cool. I'd prefer a slightly longer barrel but it is tempting.

    I like SA, and while I don't own one of their ARs, I like the quality of their firearms. Never needed their warranty, but hear it is good.

    I'm in the camp of not going to forgive or forget SAs previous choices, too many other companies out there that aren't two faced.
    That said, I'm sure it's a good rifle.

    I recall that post. I feel bad for the poster as it seemed clear he got a bad one. I own the same .308 Saint Victor and mine has been very good and I have had no problems with it.

    All manufacturers do put out occasional lemons. For a long time (maybe still) Colt has been the go-to "mil spec" AR-15, and I heard a reputable story of a man whose Colt jammed on him because the gas key on the bolt carrier had loosened.

    This was a soldier in Iraq and his weapon was the army issued M-4 carbine, select fire, supposedly the "cream of the cream."

    Nothing is perfect. My mother drove a Mercedes car. It had things go bad that had to be fixed so ......

    I can't imaging a use for a .308 pistol. . . other than annoying everyone inside 200 yards with obscene muzzle blast. It's a great rifle cartridge, but it's less than ideal as a PDW/SBR cartridge.

    And once you're on a .308 rifle, build one on a PSA kit. Upgrade barrel or trigger if you want, and go shoot.
