.308 piston "battle" rifles

Which would you have?

  • Total voters
From personal experience:

M1A = The A is for Amazing. Love that thing. But difficult to put optics on to use a modern advantage for the 7.62 round. But if your eyes are good and you like to rock irons, its the battle machine.

SIG 716 Patrol Gen II = Is what leaves the safe and travels with me on open backcountry trips. (Woods the 300blk is my go too) I run a Griffin RECE7 suppressor on it and it and with the two-position gas piston, one-click over and it's running quite. Leupold D-EVO and LCO for optics. Its not a lightweight gun, but that's a hard ask for a durable and reliable 7.62. One thing it is is accurate.

I do not own a SCR17.....yet. It's on the list for a one day add. But I doubt it will replace the 716 for my go too heavy hitter semi-auto. I want one just because. America!
