AR-10

I was wondering if anyone knows what an Armalite AR-10 with a CKA lower receiver is worth. I believe it is either a portuguese or guatumalin style.

    I recently purchased a DPMS panther version of the AR-10, With the factory trigger no matter how hard I brace myself or how easy I pull the trigger It still jerks to the right 3-4 inches at 50 yards. I have compentsated with the scope but im not comfortable knowing that it alwsys doesn't jerk the same. Would a better padded stock help take some of the recoil out. Can you use a AR-15 Stock? How much pull on a soft trigger would help? 3 pounds. What is the min a trigger can be set at before it becomes dangerous?
    Any help Appreciated

    Everyone....

    Given the demand, backlog, and changing prices, and how they may go back down, or who knows WHAT happens .... what would you buy/sell an AR-10 in 7.62x51 for ?

    C'mon , not that you ARE buying/selling, just what's your number.

    (I've checked the price of the 'sold' pieces on the site.)

    What's your number right now. I appreciate it.

    e d i t

    cper - I just wanted a shot from the hip from ANYONE, not someone to muddy the water.

    bean - I already DID THAT , as the original post says.

    Others who may still post - I was asked to write an opinion piece . I came to an educated forum for THIER NUMBER , but I guess if all I get is noise from the replies, I'll just make sht up .

    I would appreciate some advice,I'm thinking of an AR-10 for deer hunting and varmints in the winter.I'd like to keep the price under 1000.00 and the two considerations are the DPMS Oracle or the DPMS Panther Sportical.I won't be doing any long range hunting and won't be shooting competion just a good solid reliable rifle within my budget. If you have any experience with either I'd appreciate some feedback on either.

    Your question is rather confusing? I might be wrong? I always thought that the AR 10 types. No matter what the different manufacturers call them, are .308 caliber.

    As far as I know, the two DPMS guns you mentioned. Are both .223's?

    Dave45-70,

    Those DPMS rifles are good entry level AR-10's. I have their standard model with the stainless 24" bull barrel, even though I did add a Timney trigger. I also have GAP-10, made by GA Precision, which is my golden standard, go to, when I need to use an AR-10. It is 3 times the cost though.

    Rufe, DPMS, has mirror line ups of both the AR-10, and AR-15 models. It kind of makes it confusing, but they do.

    Best

    quote:When one say AR-10, they are talking about ArmaLite. All other are "copies". The others you mentioned are 308 Win. AR's. Very different the an ArmaLite. Different mags and receivers, uppers and lowers. Maybe other parts. But all will do the job. They have them in the 243 Win. Is the way I will go for what you are looking for.

    I do agree that the AR-10, is the ORIGINAL design of Eugene Stoner(The AR-15 came after). I agree that the other's are clones, some with different parts. There are MANY that share the same STONER magazine, and some that use FAL magazines.

    I would upgrade to the Oracle and leave the Panther behind, and still be under a grand.

    good luck, Thor

    I have the Sportical and have been very happy with it for pigs and deer. I generally use it still hunting into the wind through thick swamps. Covey shoot on a bunch of pigs with Bushnell Holosight is a ton of fun. Even with no magnification I have no problem keeping 3" groups at 100 yds.
