Well picked up this Daniel Defense DD5V4 6.5 creed w/ Sig Whiskey 5 scope,Atlas PSR ,new Pelican 1750 case, Magpul 50rd magazine with a spare 20rd mag. Rifle looks real good All for under 2k out the door. Hopefully its a good rifle, no experience with the Daniel Defense rifle
I already switched out the Sig Whiskey 5 for my older Vortex PST.

Yes I like the Vortex PST a lot better, not my first choice but one I could spare for now, gotta see if I am going to like the AR10..

i didnt know if I’d like my first ar10 either at first but I see more of them in your future.

No shit right. With Pelican and all. “Best I can do is $575.”

I laughed harder than I should have.

Poor Bastard: But man, I paid $4,000 for all this, I still have the receipts. And I haven't even shot it yet!

Pawnshop: Yeah but you have to understand we have to make money too dude. We'll probably end up listing it for like 700 and be lucky if we get 550.

PB: Yeah, okay, I guess you're right. I'll take $575, thanks for being so generous.

Fucken pawnbrokers.
I've had mates desperate enough to go to those arse bandits.
I would rather have given them the money if I had known.

So have you shot them? I am just curious what to expect.
They shoot like piss the gunn is super lightweight, recoil is harsh and they are not very accurate. We had 2 and sold them quickly.

There is a reason nobody reccomends them as large frame AR.

Good luck

There are things you can do to tame them like aggressively adjusting the gas flow with an adjustable gas block, aggressive muzzle brake, adding weight somewhere, A2 style rifle buffer and tube, etc.

At the end of the day, if you hate it I guarantee you'll get what you paid back out of it lol

    Shoot it and see what it does.

    For the price for what you got I think it sounds pretty good. Could have done a LOT worse.

    You can always flip it and save a few shekels and walk into an FN Mk20 if you want a killer semi auto.

    The people that are saying it's crap are they referring to that exact model/brand or ar10s in general? I don't see the reason for hate on an AR10 because they shoot really nice if setup properly and are a real blast to use. My aero/jp ar10 is a half moa rifle and has literally no recoil with the omega can and a silent capture spring. It's quiet, tame, and the reticle barely moves from your target from shot to shot...

    Before you shoot it...

    I would clean the bore thoroughly.

    And good find... if the perceived recoil is harsh, I'd get an Adj. GB.

    All my Large Frame AR's have them... the difference in the recoil impulse is dramatic in a 308 / 6.5CM.
    My SLR's all are set at about 6 clicks open, of the available 15 clicks open.

    Easier on you , easier on the brass, easier follow up shots, easier on the parts.

    I had the chance to put rounds through a 20 inch 6.5 Creedmore. Gun was a great shooter it was completely stock but 5 headshots in a row at around 280 yards even with the awful mil spec trigger . I didn't notice recoil that much, it seemed to shoot pretty soft
