I have an Armalite AR10A2, 1998 vintage (reg'd CA AW). Love it. Right now it has a 6X Valdada M2 scope on it.Rifle has a chrome-lined barrel and the handguard is not freefloated - but with 168gr Fed Gold Medal Match ammo (SMK) it shoots subMOA if the idiot behind the wheel does his part. (Since the bbl's not freefloated, I rest the *rear* of the handguards nearest the receiver on the benchrest sandbags to avoid flex.)Next project is to FF the handguards with a PRI rail and get an A4 flattop receiver. The bbl's only had 175+ rounds thru it so it's not even really broken in per se. You'll love an AR10.Bill WieseSan Jose cA
That's where I'm headed next...got plenty of bolt actions but only one semi auto rifle.

Clarification: I said "outdated in urban areas" where a long shot is 200 yards. Our sniper boys are often shooting engaging targets up close & very personal. Like point blank range and in number. Thus the M110.
I wouldn't say outdated, just not the preferred tool for the killing in Urban environment. The M24 still has its place in the military arsenal. Magazine capacity and delivery time have been cut, but the M110 is still not going to make those long distance shots that they are looking for (my opinion). What they are looking into now is changing the caliber from 7.62 (.308) to a 300 Mag or .338. They are looking for shots not only out to 800-1000 meters, but looking into shots out to and past 1200 meters (effectively). So ya, the M110 is a good weapon, the M24 will not be replaced for a while. The article below says they are going to continue to keep purchasing the M24 until 2010, but just like anything else, just because we are not purchasing the item, doesn't mean it will not still be around for years to come. Look at the UH-1H/V helicopter. Still flying today in a few active army places. And not like the UH-1, Parts for the M24 (Remington 700), are not going away for a long time, unless 700 lovers stop loving, and everyone else that produces parts from firing pins to stocks stops selling. I'm not an expert, but I would think, and assume the M24 will be in Sniper's lockers for years to come. I looked and looked online to see the effective range of the M110, but cannot find it. But if anyone can, I'd be interested to find the military's Max effective range on it. This is a pretty good read: http://en.wikipedia....c_Sniper_System

The M24 is long from being replaced. the M110 is just another tool in the box. Most if not all of the M24's will eventually get rechambered to 300 winmag and mounted in a tachmod or an Ashburry chassis system.
I pooched the topic line, should read: M24 vs M110 semi auto sniper rifleThis rifle has been recently replaced by the Army in favor of the M110 Semi-auto Sniper Rifle. Has anyone shot both of these? The M110 looks like an AR10 to me...with an adjustable butt. What else am I missing? Was seriously considering an M24 & an AR10. I like the semi auto though. I know there are plenty of servicemen here...whaddaya think?
