My parting impressions are that the Springfield AR-10 is a home run on three points. First, Springfield succeeded in building a lightweight AR platform rifle chambered in .308. Second, Springfield has done this with a solid design and great manufacturing. Lastly, the gun retails for only $1,452. In the wild I expect it to be even more affordable. That is a lot of gun for the money.

I enjoyed my time on the rifle and would encourage you to get some rounds though it as well.
