I love it. I got a screamin' deal on it a while back. I bought the .308 Classic as more of a nostalgia service rifle chambered in a much more useful round.

3/4" groups at 100 are easy with the iron sights. I was very surprised with the performance being that it's a $1000 rifle. I haven't had the opportunity to stretch its legs but I don't see hitting steel at 500 being an issue at all.

This rifle will be staying exactly how it came. All I wanted was a M16A3 chambered in 7.62x51 and that's exactly what I got. Not a single jam yet using PMags and I love how it feels. It is a pretty heavy rifle coming in at 12 pounds though.

I'll be trading it off in the near future though for a Colt LE6920 to build a clone of the rifle I carried in Iraq though.
