Thumbs up ITEM WITHDRAWN FROM THE MARKET PLACE ASA 308

This rifle listing has been withdrawn from the marketplace. It's no longer available. Thanks for looking and for your interest.

Acquired this rifle this past March for around $2,400. Gun store owner saw it at the last Shot Show and brought one back to Ventura County. So I purchased it, but need to move it. It is an American Spirit Arms .308 AR-10 type rifle. This is a new product from what I understand is the re-started company in AZ. It's a very nice rifle and shoots exceptionally well. Be advised that the barrel is heavy!

Here is some additional information about this rifle that I am posting on 7/27/10 at about 11:30pm PST: It has a standard California-legal AR15 type bullet button. It is not a Prince 50. The picture may be a little confusing because there is a magnetic tool on the bullet button. The weapon has been fired about forty times. Hard to estimate the exact weight - particularly when it is wearing gizmos on the quad rail. I don't have a scale that would accurately measure it, but it feels at least 50% heavier than my S&W M&P15T. That's when each of them has a full magazine. 7.62 are quite a bit heavier than .223. But even without the magazines in the rifles, the AR10 feels 3 or 4 pounds heavier than the AR15. Also, comes with the original mfg's plastic carrying case and one ten round magazine as well as the owner's pamphlet. What you see in the picture is one of my ancient 20 round magazines. It does not go with the rifle. As you all know, those high caps cannot be bought or sold here in the Golden State by ordinary citizens.

Here is what ASA says about this rifle from their web site: (BTW they are selling for $2,199 new for Product ID: ASA-16/308

"Overview

It takes Armalite AR-10 Magazines.

The Troy iron sights shown in the pictures are NOT included. Owner's manual and original manufacturer's case are provided.

Equipped with a bullet button of course. The VLTOR butt stock shown is not included for this price. You would get the original butt stock that came with the rifle.

Rifle is located in the Thousand Oaks, California area.

Thanks for looking. This is my first post so regrets in advance if it's not up to standard. Advice is appreciated on doing this right.

Hi:
I posted additional info in the OP. Not sure of exact weight, but 3 or 4 pounds heavier than my AR15.
Thank you for the inquiry!

Culver City is do-able. North Hollywood or around Universal Studios wouldn't be too bad. Heck, I might get adventurous and make it to down to Silver Lake!
