    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and all, but I behold that as an ugly AR.

    The only positive thing I can think of offhand for that forearm is that it’s not heavy.

    • Chase Buchanan

      The handguard does look very benchrest-y.

    • Jeff Erickson

      The AK to me is a homely AR too, but damn it is just…ugly gorgeous ya know? 🙂 Kinda like the A10 Warthog. 🙂

      • allannon

        I dunno; there’s a brutalist elegance to things like the AK or, maybe especially, A-10 based on their functionality. Sort of the opposite of the Apple design ethic.

        I just don’t see this as being in that class.

        • HORSE SIX ZERO

          Very well put.

  • Hatuls

    I’m a big fan of .308 ARs. My DPMS is a joy to shoot. Any idea if these are DPMS pattern, Armalite pattern, or completely their own deal? They’ve got a Pmag in it, so I’d guess DPMS, but couldn’t find it on their site.

    • Zachary marrs

      I would love a ar10 for popin hogs, but none really tickle my fancy.

      Now, one of those .50 beowulfs…

      • Secundius

        .50 Beowulf, great stopping power at short-ranges. Virtually, NO stopping power at .308Win. ranges!!!

        • Zachary marrs

          Thats true, but I can’t really recall shooting a hog past 100 yards, too much brush.

  • Secundius

    The price is a little excessive. You can purchase the new Noreen Firearms BN36 .30-06Sprnfld. (7.62x63mm), for almost $500.00 USD. cheaper and still get longer-range & stopping power.

    • G0rdon_Fr33man

      The price on a Ferrari is also a little excessive. I´m only driving from A to B anyways, so I´ll get a Toyota instead.

  • Nicks87

    “$2489 which is reasonable for a rifle of this quality”
    No, it’s not reasonable. Especially when you can build or buy a 308 AR for much cheaper. It seems to me that this company just likes to use a lot of fancy words to justify their prices.

    • G0rdon_Fr33man

      Price reflect quality. The fact that a Shilen or Lothar Walther blank barrel can cost more than a standard AR-15 tells you something.

      • Nicks87

        My DPMS Gen2 308 will shoot just as good or better than the seekins at a fraction of the cost. Plus if I decide to put another barrel on it I will still have spent less than $2489 and will have a much more accurate rifle. Not to mention I could never live with that ugly ass triangular handguard either so tack on another $200+ on the price of the seekins rifle.

        • Dan

          So i take it you shot a Seekins and compared it to your DPMS? Or are you just assuming because you own a DPMS? I will agree the Seekins is no bargin

          • I am getting this rifle for review so we’ll see about the accuracy.

          • Nicks87

            Nice, but I will be shocked if it offers better accuracy over the current 308 ARs that are already on the market. Seekins isnt doing anything earth shattering that would justify the price.

          • Nicks87

            No, I am assuming because DPMS 308s are incredibly accurate. My friend has a LaRue OBR that costs about $3200 and with the same scope (Leupold vx3) my DPMS Recon shoots just as tight groups at 200 yards. I was a skeptic too until DPMS came out with the Gen 2 models and I picked one up and felt how light it was and decided to buy one. Needless to say I was pleased with the purchase.

  • Secundius

    The only thing “AR” about this Rifle is, that’s its Automatic Reloading and not Automatic Rifle (“Auto Firing”).

    • Phil Hsueh

      You do realize that the AR in AR-15 or even AR-10 doesn’t stand for Automatic or even Assault Rifle but Armalite, don’t you?
