    Hi GT friends, I've been searching for a new 7.62x51/.308 semi-auto for a while, and finally decided that the LMT MWS was the one to go with. I got it Friday and couldn't be happier with the fit and finish. So far, here are the mods: Harris swivel bipod, WOTAC 4.5 to 14 scope (I was one of the lucky ones that actually received their FFP scope from Wonders Optics - saving up for an NF but my wallet needs to recover first), Burris QD mount, Troy Mideivel flash suppressor, Magpul BUIS, Magpul enhanced trigger guard, and a ton of Magpul and DPMS 20 round mags. Also thanks to the good folks at Ratworx USA - they were great to work with, had a genuine desire to ensure I got the rifle I wanted, and had an excellent price (with free shipping). IMHO they come highly recommended.

    The MWS 308 is definitely on my short list. I have the MRP in 556 and hands down my favorite AR I own.

    Hey RTL, it's not lightweight by any means. I haven't formally weighed it with my mods, but I do know its just shy of 10lbs stock. So I imagine with scope, bipod and full mag she's topping out around 12lbs or so. Really not too bad if you've got a good sling.

    If you don't mind me asking, what did the rifle itself run? I just built a 6.8 Spc but I'm always in the market...

    They retail for $2859.96 for chrome lined and $3396.09 for stainless. They can be found for around $500 dollars less if you look hard and wait a long time.
