Based on a Hiperfire trigger the Echo Trigger has a unique feature that allows an AR to fire when the trigger is pulled and also when released. This translate into much more expensive trips to the gun range. My two initial observations are the trigger is quite expensive and also looks to be pretty complex. At this time I cannot confirm how this trigger functions in a 308 AR or AR-10. If anyone has any experience with the echo trigger drop us a line.
The Magpul PRS GEN 3 stock is a field precision rifle stock for 308 AR, AR308 and AR-10 platforms, featuring tool-less length of pull and cheek piece height adjustment.
With solid adjustments for length of pull and cheek piece height via aluminum detent knobs, the PRS GEN 3 (Precision Rifle/Sniper) stock provides a stable interface and is intended for semi-automatic sniper or varmint type rifles. Offering a nearly universal fit, it is optimized for rifle-length receiver extensions but will also mount to many mil-spec carbine and A5-length tubes*. Includes a cant/height-adjustable rubber butt-pad and rotation-limiting QD sling swivel cups as well as M-LOK® slots on the bottom for rear monopod mounting. Made in U.S.A.
As I mentioned elsewhere on the site Bartlein Barrels known to make some of the most accurate rifle barrels in the world does not make barrels for the 308 AR, AR .308 platform. Instead they send customers to Craddock Precision. In turn Craddock is quickly making a name for themselves for making the most accurate 6.5 Creedmoor and .308 Winchester 308 AR Barrels from Bartlein and Criterion Barrel blanks. Now they are very forward thinking in offering the same accurate barrels for DPMS GII (DPMS G2) and equivalent rifles
Cadex Defence the folks who developed the Remington XM2010 sniper rifle, and their own line of sniper rifles and chassis also offer up their own AR-10 B compatible lower receiver the Cadex Defence CDX-10.
Cadex Defence CDX-10 AR10 lower receiver is manufactured to fit Armalite and Noveske upper receiver assemblies. It is precision machined from aeronautic grade 7075-T6 aluminum to provide the user with a high quality lower receiver for their AR-10 B rifle.
Geissele’s Hi-Speed National Match AR 308 Trigger combines their exceptional match-grade trigger with their Service Rifle, Designated Marksman Rifle, and Match Rifle Spring sets. Geissele’s adjustable Hi-Speed National Match AR-15 Trigger is designed for competition, hunting, and tactical sniper use, where exact trigger pull weight is essential for success.
The trigger comes with three spring sets, each applicable to a different type of shooting. The Hi-Speed Service Spring is designed for NRA High Power Service Rifle competition and is approved for use in CMP sanctioned competitions. Easily switch to the Hi-Speed Designated Marksman Rifle spring set for tactical and military shooting where trigger pull weight is not regulated. Hi-Speed Match spring set can be adjusted to low pull weights for enhanced trigger control, letting the shooter wring every ounce of accuracy out of his rifle.
With the Geissele Hi-Speed National Match Trigger in your 308 AR, you can easily adjust the triggers first and second stage weight, as well as total pull weight and overtravel to your exact preference.
LUCAS OIL EXTREME DUTY GUN CARE PRODUCTS – While browsing the Armalite website for an AR-10 Receiver Extension Tube and AR-10 Rifle Length Gas Tube for a project here on 308 AR I noticed a menu heading “Lucas Oil”. Lucas Oil is a brand I’m very familiar with. I use Lucas Oil Fuel Injector Cleaner in our vehicles. That said I had no idea Lucas made gun care products. In my world seeing the Lucas Oils, Greases and Cleaners on the Armalite website is a glowing endorsement. User reviews seem to agree. Needless to say I have an assortment inbound for review. Stay tuned.
The Precision Armament M41Muzzle Brake may not have the “tactical” or “aggressive” look that many 308 AR rifle shooters seem to prefer today. What this muzzle brake does have to offer is proven performance in the field and that is what really matters. Most Precision Armament M41owners are shocked at how well this muzzle brake reduces felt recoil on the .308 Winchester and .300 Winchester Magnum calibers. You can read many reviews of the Precision Armament M41 muzzle brake….
The Mega Arms MATEN 308 AR Receiver Set has long been my favorite 308 upper/lower combo. It’s precisely made, impeccably finished and looks great. It’s still my “Go To” for 308 AR rifle builds. The MKM is Mega Arms latest incarnation of the MATEN and includes a proprietary and clever barrel and keymod handuard retention system.
As if the 308 AR versus AR-10® platform debate isn’t confusing enough Armalite brings confusion to their own platform. Armalite AR-10 lowers are available in two styles. The original AR-10 A series and the AR-10 B series.
Why does Armalite offer two different AR-10 lowers? Original Armalite “waffle” magazines are actually the basis of DPMS LR-308 and KAC SR-25 magazines. During the 1994 Bill Clinton Assault Weapon Armalite decided to switch designs to the modified M14 magazines to ensure customers would have an ample supply of 308 magazines.

One of the best 308 AR and AR-10 Triggers is the Geissele SSA trigger. The Geissele SSA trigger is a semi-automatic only version of Geissele SSF Select -Fire trigger. The Geissele SSA is a 4.5lb. non-adjustable combat trigger that is a precision two-stage trigger and allows precise and accurate trigger control.
