    Here's a link to Buds, but I think your too late. Looks like someone went on a shopping spree.

    I haven't fired the standard model but the loaded model is a nice rifle. Saw several models on gunbroker.com earlier today.

    just devils advocate maybe but id recommend a ar10 instead for the money.

    i had the loaded and after i shimmed the gas block it was a tackdriver... .75moa with 168fgmm. but i believe mine was exception not the rule and think for many reasons the ar10 trumps it.

    I've added a Sadlak Airborne mount with a Vortex Viper 6.5-20x50 scope and a Bradley Cheek reset just waiting for the local range to open back up. There's an indoor range that will let me sight it in there which i guess wouldn't be to bad just to get someone close since the range only goes out to 25 yds

    Before my local gun club closed, I was inches away from pulling the trigger on the Loaded. Really liked a lot of the upgrades over the standard model.

    Unfortunately, no place good to shoot for a while, so........ new purchases off the table. Sad.

    Basically "unitizes" the loose fitting parts that rattle destroying consistent barrel harmonics.
