LH 308 combo (upper, lower, BCG)
I have owned a 6HL for a number of years - makes a fine competition rifle,. When the LH AR10, was announced, it was pretty much a no brainer I wanted a longer and heavier barrel than currently offered, so I picked up the builders combo on a Black Friday sale. (Also bought the Gamma compensator and a couple of magazines..) That Bad: I would guess it was a QA oversight or related to being early production serial, but I did have one issue - the charging handle slot was not fully machined out. There was a thin tab of metal (less than 1mm thick) I had to remove and smooth out before the charging handle would install. .The Good: The rest of the fit/finish was excellent. Lockup us tight. As advertised, it accepts standard DPMS parts without issue. The barrel, barrel nut, for, and stock came from different sources - everything fit right the first time. The Gamma compensator works very well, as do the mags.. General observation: I’ve got about 100 rounds through it so far. Zero jams, zero misfeeds, zero failures to extract. However - Unlike the 6H, which ejects brass at approx 11 o’clock, the AR10 ejects about 7 o’clock, so once in a while, it bounces one off my head Be advised the dust cover rod is free float. A C-Clip is not used to hold it in place. If you use a Hogue barrel nut/fore, under recoil, the pin will side forward through the holes in the nut, then the spring/dust cover go flying. Fortunately, I found them. On the 6HL, Stag put a rubber plug in the hole. .The plug is not supplied by Hogue. (I put a squished earplug in the hole. Works well.) Overall, this was an excellent value, especially on sale. Scoped, it is a tack driver, and I’m fine tuning the Redfield match sights I added to make it the same on iron.
