I'm looking for feedback from people who have used the AR-10 in either 16" or 20". Thanks in advance for the help.

If you move this to the "Rifles" section I think you get the answers you are looking for.

I had a 16 inch flat top I scoped and used it for an urban sniper role in LE situations and it worked without fail, I broke it in according to Armalites specs and it would do 1/2 moa at 100 yards.

k9dpd,

What kind of scope?

Negative experience on my part.
AR-10 I had wouldn't feed any brand or type of ammo, at all, with any of 3 magazines.
Armalite has some QC issues, buyer beware.

JodyH,

I used to follow the old ArmaLite forum and when any body wrote in about those troubles it usually was the magazine. There are some mag conversions that are not quite right.

If you know someone else with an AR-10 that runs you might try swapping mags (yours in theirs and vice-versa) and seeing what happens.

These were all factory Armalite mags.
I traded the AR-10 off a year ago or so, if a weapon isn't 99% reliable straight out of the box, I ditch it for something that is.

JodyH,

I guess I should have been more specific and stated that some of the recorded mag problems were with ArmaLite mags also.

I was using a Tasco Super Sniper 10x42 mildot, great scope I now have it on my SPR. 7.62 was a little much in my city so I switched to a 5.56
