    I'm looking to buy an AR10 now. I was dead set on the S&W M&P10 but I've been looking around. I found 2 other canidates. I found a CMMG with free float tube and stainless barrel for $1400 and a Sig716 for $1300. The M&P10 is $1400. It will be mainly a toy/ range gun. Just looking for the better deal/ platform before I pull the trigger.

    Kinda funny until a day ago I had never even heard of this gun.

    I do not own, have never shot or even seen a Sig 716....but yesterday I was shooting with a guy who's credentials as a shooter far surpass most people's who had nothing but excellent things to say of this rifle.

    He claimed that he witnessed a coworker repeatedly make hits at 3k yards and was so impressed with the gun that he bought his own.

    Of the choices you listed....get the SIG 716.

    By the way, you did not mention which particular configuration for that SIG 716...and where are they for $1300 ?

    For some reason, my BS detector just went haywire... :confused:

    You realize that's nearly 2 miles, right?

    I think not only is this individual ignorant enough to believe his friend, but he may be fluffing his credentials a bit as well. .308 is losing steam at 1k yards and dropping like a rock. It won't make hits at 3k.

    Jus' sayin'.

    To the OP, I'd personally go with the 716. IMHO, of course.

    What if I took the 716 out if the equation? The guy seems kinda shady not wanting to meet FTF.

    I'd say you can't go wrong with either the CMMG or S&W, but I'd rather have the S&W factory backing my rifle... Personal choice would be the M&P10.

    Skip that shady fool.

    This is the CMMG. Rifle, Mk3, .308, 18" SS, MC, LPGB, Mod1

    I can't find much for reviews for them online and I've been looking for 2 days now. Been through the AR sites.

    My GF likes the CMMG because it looks better.. lol The stainless barrel is nice though. I'm sure they would both go bang when the trigger is pulled but wanted opinions on them.

    I have an M&P 10 and can make 300 Yard kill shots.
    Working up to 400 then 500.
    The rifle is more capable than I am at this point.
    Kill shot for me is inside a 1" Circle.
    I tell ya the wind is a ***** when shooting beyond 100 yards.
    Magpul has a great video set I am watching and should help me improve.

    I don't care what he claims his credentials are. If he made that statement he is totally full of s***. I am a former Army sniper and I am telling you it didn't happen.

    Chill the f out. I'm not saying I did it or even saw it done.

    Forget that part, everything else that was said was a good review of the gun.

    You tell us to "chill the f out" when all we're doing is just pointing out the obvious. If you didn't believe it yourself, why would you even repeat that BS info? And how can or should we "chill the f out" when we're not even upset? Sounds like you need to stop projecting your issues on us, brotato. ;)
