Looking to get a new "AR10" type weapon, .308 / 7.62. Considering the
Armalite AR10A4 ( http://www.armalite.com/ItemForm.aspx?item=10A4CBF&ReturnUrl=Categories.aspx?Category=f4bd4a13-55d1-41aa-aea0-49488ec48776 ),
DPMS Panther LR-308 AP4 ( http://www.dpmsinc.com/store/products/?prod=4854 ),
Rock River Arms LAR-8 308 mid length A4 ( http://www.rockriverarms.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=category.display&category_id=255 )
I've read lots of discussion regarding magazine availablility and price varying between brands.
What are your thoughts? Who owns or has shot what? Reliability? Price difference? Proprietary vs. availablility or parts / accessories? Thanks in advance for your input!

I've had experience with all three brands and haven't had a bad experience with any of them. I think the only question I would have is what is the primary function of the rifle going to be for you? To me the A4 configuration with the 16" barrel is a good battle rifle but if I was planning on shooting for distance very much, I'd probably want a longer barrel. Just a thought.
