AR-10= Armalite. Might want to head on over to and check things out. What do you want to do with the gun?

long range shots,but must also have removable clip,flat top

i have a bushmaster a2 with 24" bull barrel,harris bipod,with cal match scope,someone camoed over all the scope info but its within 4" out to about 400 yards the only thing i dont like is that if there is any wind it really blows a light little bullet around. my 243 i can get out to about 550 within 4" if i have time adjust the scope get a dead rest and range find the target it just takes way too long in setup to do with any acuracy so im after something i can reach out and touch something with a minimum of 600 yards , but also may want it for some close quater shots.

I can recommend the Fulton Armory Titon, they build them good and there is alot of choices in componants. I like the side cocking handle option as well.
Uses the same magazine as the DPMS and Knights Armaments SR25
30mm Bushnell Elite Tactical 4200 series 6x-24x
Evolution Gun Works 20moa cant, riser mount
Burris Extreme Tactical rings 30mm
Magpul PRS stock
Accu-shot monopod
Harris BR swivel bipod with pod-loc lever

The one we have , has the 22 inch Keiger Stainless Match barrel. As it sits
in the photo it just came in under 3000.00 with glass

the fulton armory titan is what has caught my eye the most esecialy for the price but i have not shot one. does any one know what kind of groups you can get at 500 yard i know ammo is a major factor but any info is good also whats the recoil like.
i also live in realy sandy conditions so how do they function dirty, not that i plan to abuse it but its hard to keep them clean when you live by the sanddunnes state park.
