Cheap and ArmaLite don't really mix too well :( . An AR-10 from them will run you around 1.5K.
I know and thats only what they start at which is why i don't have one yet. Right now i'd rather use my money for other things till i'm more financially stable. But i will have one eventually.

Personally, if I was going to spend over a grand on a .308 rifle, I'd just bit the bullet and get an M1A. It's got a lot more potential than the AR design. Besides, I've already got an M15A4 from ArmaLite, so I think that I've thrown enough money to that company to hold me over for a couple more years.

To take the AR10 point one step further...

Stoner (the gun developer - not the originator of this thread :D ) always intended his new assualt rifle would be in .308. .223 was a later development after the US left the NATO round behind in the mid 60's.

there is a magazine i bought last few months ago, when the AR-15 lower land rush happened in kalifornia.

nice 10 page (or so) history on the AR.

the 223 round was due to the kennedy administration wanting to be diff, IIRC.

i'll read the article again. really fascinating...
