There isn't going to be an AWB any time soon and Armalite makes an excellent .308 rifle for a very reasonable price. Glad I got mine before they went into a 2 year backorder status. I would like to see them move from Illinois but that's a business decision that they will have to make for business purposes. My bottom line is that I just want them cranking out as many AR10s as possible without any obstructions.

CMMG makes a nice .308 also
and they've come out with a more civilian friendly stance than Armalite's attempt to straddle the fence response.

I watched this brouhaha unfold this week on Arfcom. It should be required reading for any marketing/PR/communications majors - How to wreck a company and entangle your C level officers in a social media hornet's nest in less than 72 hours. It was so bad Armalite shut down and scrubbed their FB page TWICE in less 24 hours.
