I have a 5.56 upper from LWRC I bought back in mid '06 that I then pinned onto a Mega Machine lower I built up myself. It has been an exceedingly reliable and 1-1.5 moa gun with a mid weight 16" Lothar Walther chromed barrel.... (used LW's back then). I totally agree that their REPER is an awe inspiring setup, (it had better be at $3500) but beyond my pay grade.

I have a friend that owns one of these and I've had the pleasure of shooting it. My impression is that it's a beautiful, well made gun, excellent fit and finish. I really like the side charging handle that doesn't cycle with the bolt, and the rail is very nice. The gun shoots better than I can, the only complaint I might have (aside from the price) is that it seems very heavy, even for a .308. It feels more like a bench gun than a field gun. I know I wouldn't want to have to carry it, along with ammo, for any distance in rough terrain. By the way, I believe you can get them for much less than the MSR price. I know my friend got his for under 3K.

Just got a LWRC REPR .308 (18 inch barrel).  My son shot these 3-shot 100 yard groups our first time out with the rifle (168 gr SMK Federal ammo).  3/4 inch groups were the norm, with many under and around 1/2 inch.

It is a fantastic rifle. With the 20" barrel, it seems more accurate than many bolt action rifles. Next time I go shooting, I'll have to range some of my targets and take pics of the groups.

A few months ago I set out on the persuit of the perfect factory built 308AR, after many,many hours of research I could only narrow it down to 3.(I'm not counting the Knight,I beleive it to be overpriced) The price,precision,fit/finish & reliability from what I could tell were all equal so for me it boiled down to customer service, for me customer service includes being able to provide the customer with the product in a reasonable amount of time.(I don't consider 4 months a reasonable amount of time)

Of the three rifle manufacturers on my list the only one that could was LWRCI, I purchased the 20" REPR and expect to receive it in weeks,not months. <thumbsup>
