My favorite is my 1962 Winchester model 88 lever action. Dad bought it new in 1962 and gave it to me a few years ago.

Just purchased an FAL and M1A, but they're in 10 day jail right now.

this one!
not that one per se, Ive got my own.

Outstanding handling characteristics given its caliber. Id swear my AK has more kick and rise.

Truth be told, I still love the "classics" HK91, FAL, even M14 patterns.
One of these days, cash permitting Im sure I'll have at least one of each.

My favorite .308 rifles:

#1 - Remington M700 PSS
#2 - Springfield Loaded M1A
#3 - Custom Argentine Mauser Sporter

Hard to go wrong with the .308 Winchester round. I am convinced it is the most accurate .30 caliber round when handloaded and custom tailored to a particular rifle.

Looking pretty hard at the AR-10, but I'm so fixed with what I've got, I'll probably just buy more ammo to shoot through the FAL....

No. Tape the muzzle, tape the sights, wrap it with paracord, hang it from a beam, and hit it with krylon. ;)

I added the arms mount a few months after I painted it. The H1 is most likely going to go away and be replaced with an Aimpoint Pro. Just like the full sized tube more.

The #4s are in 7.62mm, the mauser has an FN made Israeli issue 7.62mm barrel. The wood stock is Israeli. The SMLE looking rifle is an Indian 2A1 in 7.62mm.

Is your MWS a 16 or 18 in barrel?

I had the 16" MWS and from my past ownership, it was the only 308 semi which can do half inch groups, many AR10 style can acheive MOA, but half is unheard of... granted the SR25 was said to be able to do this but since I've never handled or own one, I cannot comment. So the question comes, if the 16 is half MOA capable, why pay another $700 for the 18"?
