robar looks nice
heres mel's review
http://www.snipercentral.com/sr-60.htm


review of the A3 i can give ya a short one
uses FAL mags which si nice and cheap
bolt release is near the trigger guard which im not used to but its not a problem
only jammed once- a crappy fal mag which springs failed (not the gun's fault), didnt have any other problems
accuracy your probably going to be seeing 1/2 - 1 moa... bushmasters tend to be very accurate but im not sure if they have any guarentee with thier rifle... the barrel isnt match grade but gerally bushmaster's chrome lined barrels shoot very well anyway
nice brake on it... reduces recoil for extended range sessions

iv heard that panther arms makes a better AR-15 kind in .308

im pritty sure that all Robars will be similar in performance (all pritty good), just a differnt stock and slightly differnt features

im assuming you mean DPMS Panther .308s, they are fine rifles, match grade and will probably give you similar accuracy, Bushmaster's quality is second to none but still DPMS Long Range Panther .308 has the features that i persoanlly prefer, match grade barrel, free floating etc, kind of like a less expensive ArmaLite AR-10T or Stoner SR-25 Match (one of the finest AR-10 match rifle in existance today)

my mos is 11b- infantry, more specific- scout platoon, hopes on beoming a sniper, going to ranger school etc
joined the Connecticut Army National Guard this month, ill be going to Ft. Benning Feb 2 for basic and AIT
i started as PFC because i recruited people and had college credits

if you have to loose weight start exercising, im not sure what the requirements for bodyfat are but they test everyone above a certain height/weight but at meps they didnt test people who were within the height/weight requriements to my knowledge

It's so new it isn't even listen on Robar's webpage...

To me it kinda looks like an AI action with a straight bolt handle. Not that I've ever been an expert. :roll:

Regarding the new robar

The action is made by RPA Precision Engineering of England.

An interesting note here, a few of there rifles were evaluated by the Canadians for a bid for some .338 Lapua sniper rifles. Here's hoping...

The Stock

The rifle featured in SWAT magazine features the RPA "Quadlock" action bedded to a McMillan A3. If you check out RPA's online gallery, one of the rifles features a carbon fiber stock. From what I've heard, these rifles can shoot lights out.

ive never used a carbon fibre stock.... but ive used a carbon fibre barrel and it was the biggest piece of **** ive ever owned.... shot great for the first 500 rounds... then opened up to nearly 1 inch at 25 YARDS!!!! it was a volquartsen barrel, never again.
