Hasn't anybody shot one? Do u think they will hold up? I will just line it in when I get one and the only time I will shoot it will be at a predator.

I don't know what your max price point is, but I think there are a plethora of better choices than the MMR.

RT may be spot on. There was a guy on here a month or so back that posted his experience with one he has. It was not a very encouraging report at all.

I think this be the thread.

Did the guy that had the mnemonics get it to shoot anybetter. Beats me, the gentleman never got back to us as to whether it did or not. I wish he lived closer to where I am, the more I think about it- the more I suspect the problem can be remedied in my humble little work area.

If you can't find a complete one that you like, don't be affraid to buy a complete upper and lower and put the two together. I don't consider that a "build" but it's too easy and I've never had one fail by doing that.

My last one, I went with a used DPMS A2 lower and a 20" A3 Upper from RGuns.com. Their on line reputation for friendliness isn't great, but their shipping was fast and I never had to have any telephone contact with them.

Anyhow, the finish colors don't exactly match between the DPMS and the RGuns, but I don't care about such trivial issues. I ordered a plain walnut stock, grip, and handguard set from Precision Arms added a few coats of tung oil just to tickle my fancy- and called it good.

I ordered the carry handle AND a scope and one-piece mount. Sighted in and broke-in with 50 rounds. I had planned on more, but time and circumstances didn't allow. The next weekend, my M1A wasn't up for a match, so I hauled the wood stocked AR- shot a 387. Got my sight dope down and three weeks later shot another match with it and rung in a 452. Not bad for an aging half crippled guy with iron sights with only 150 rounds through it to date. Oh, the only things I upgraded was a Rock River Arms 2-Stage trigger and a Nat'l Match front sight post.
