Ruger released their new SFAR

it is basically a 308 AR-15

we were very interested in this it is basically exactly what we have been thinking of in a new rifle light weight 308 semi auto bonus that it has Rugers name behind it and a reasonable for what it is price tag MSRP is 1229.00

the squeeked a little space by moving the grip back and the barrel forward they made room for an AR-10 mag in a Ar-15 size rifle

so it is a 6.8lb 16 inch or a 7.3lb 20 inch barrel AR-15 scale in 308 Win

it handles like a Ar-15 with a big fat mag well

Ruger just released it early this week and yesterday a shop we were at had one 996.99

and thanks to my son who is employed full time who lives under my roof basically for free one was able to follow us home.

haven't had a chance to shoot it yet but provided it shoots decent which I definitely expect it too it is very cool

on par with same weight as a normal AR-15 but slinging 308 win

this could be one Awesome hog gun

it feeds from the Magpul AR-10/SR-25/M110 mag they come in 10,20, 25 round option the gun sells with one 20 rounder

the trigger is good
it has a nice magpul butt stock

we will get to the range this next week when the optic gets here

if it shoots up to expectation I am already thinking of what I don't use any more gets sold so that I can put a second in the stable soon

I dont know how many mule deer and elk my dad killed with a bolt action 308. A bunch. Other stuff too. He bought the rifle in the 60's and used it for 30 plus years, grabbing it when ever he needed to make meat or kill a coyote or something. I should not have read your post. Unfortunately I did not get that rifle upon his passing. A close friend of his had come up to go elk hunting. Left his 06 in his pickup while he ran into the little general store on the highway at Cotopaxi CO. Been a wooden indian out front as long as I been alive and if you ever drove down hwy 50 west of Canon City you may remember that wooden indian. So anyway some low life grabbed his rifle out the window. So my dad gave his friend that 308. I keep thinking I need one so now I got to break the news to my bride I want to look at one...... I never really wanted an AR but recently picked one up in 5.56. Thing is a lot of fun and shoots great. Was shooting tannerite with it on Independence Day this year. My grandson killed his first deer with it. I may need another one.

What about parts compatibility? Will it take standard AR triggers? Bolt carrier proprietary?

Here is one that my son just built. AR-10 .308 caliber.
I don't remember what scope is on it, match barrel on it.

BCG is a hybrid it uses a gas key I have never seen before it is AR-15 in size with a 308 bolt face
the Firing pin looks to be AR-10
the cotter key appears to be ar-15
the ejectors , look to be dual ar-15 ejector plungers and springs (I haven't had it apart to be sure but it looks to be )

the bolt catch/release is proprietary or modified from an AR-15 some

not sure yet on the mag release hardware


what is AR-15 parts compatible is furniture the grip , the buffer tube , the stock
the rail is all m-lok and picatinny
the Fire control group is most definitely AR-15
it appears the take down pins and detents are all AR-15

being AR-10 weren't really mil spec like AR-15s there were a few generations of them and a couple different patters the stoner and the dpms

questions yet are , is the barrel extension a hybred , what barrel nuts can it use ,?

the up side besides the weight is the manual of arms is everything your used to but with a bigger magazine well

the venting in the bcg and the upper near the barrel extension and adjustable gas block are very cool.

Sounds great I need to finish the video review. Never liked .223/556 much but AR 10 were always a bit heavy and big. I'm interested in accuracy and per the reviews I watches so far 4 to 4.5 lb trigger may be good for an AR 15 but won't last long with me.
The gas block adjustment is nice for sure I need to add one on my black out it severely over gassed with can.

I would like it in 7mm08 more because I don't want to add another caliber.

Finished the video groups a bit large for me

I used a Ruger M77 ultra light in a .308 for a couple years deer hunting in PA .I really liked carrying that gun .It was light and short and came to my shoulder quickly .Over the years I used several other Ruger M77 in assorted calibers . The p[ictured SFAR in 308 looks like it is well made as is Ruger reputation And my thought has always been 'You can Not own too many guns So shot it and have fun.

I am thinking of adding this to the collection and divesting myself of 7.62x39 I just don't use that gun for anything any more I never really used it for much more than an affordable shooter back when we bough 50 round brown paper lunch bags of ammo stapled shut. there was a sports shop that broke down spam cans into bags for us po-folks if you had 5.50 you could buy a sack of ammo and have a few cents left over after the tax.

Interesting, but I gotta say, it doesn't do much for me. Especially all the one-off pieces they had to use or make to get this put together...isn't that one of the big selling points of the AR platform? To be able to easily swap this or that out for something different because all the parts basically fit the same?

On at 15s yes. AR 10s have a few different patterns.

AR-10s are a sort of like AKs
every country make thier AK a little different and there are 50+ variations all called AK

the Stoner AR-10 early and late
the DPMS gen 1 , gen 2 , gen 3

this article helps to explain
https://www.80percentarms.com/blog/dpms-vs-armalite-the-difference-between-ar-10-lr-308-patterns/

other companies have mostly gone with the DPMS pattern but this would represent one of the more parts interchangeable 308 AR rifles

given this is a Ruger you have about the best insurance that the company will be around to support it that you can have.
