Mine is 100% reliable and very accurate. My only complaint is the large clunky forend but a trip to the mill for rails/slots, and a little skateboard tape...I'm set. Some will tell you they are expensive and your paying for the name, but there is no denying that it performs. Mine was south of 3K so the $ were no worse than most quality 308 autos.

I agree with this 100%
For 3k, you could get an LMT MWS, Larue OBR, Larue PredatAR, or Noveske. All of which are primarily AR manufacturers. Or you could build your own for $2000+
I built a MA Ten with a dimpled Noveske barrel for around $2100 (-the dimpling) and I love it.
Sorry for the thread jack, but looking at the pictures of the new Les Baer Monolithic Swat version, it has some similarities to Mega Machine products. Does Mega produce any parts for the rifle? If so, I consider that added value.
