It seems there isn't a lot in the way of range reports on the B&T 308s yet. I noticed one on GB that came configured with the MagPul ACR stock and a pinned and welded Surefire comp. It really looked great. Ideally I'd love to have a DMR version (extra credit if they ever make a 6.5 Creedmore version) but it seems as they are offering the ones with pinned and welded compensators with the factory folding stocks.
Before I jump into the B&T 308 pool I'd sure like to see some reviews on their accuracy and how well they hold up durability and functionally. Being B&T products, I'm sure they are slick but anything new, it pays to let the bugs get worked out.
I find it odd that they have yet to offer a "Pro" version of the APC 223. One would think that to be the next evolution of the design.
Sorry for the thread drift, but I HATE this site so much. I click of the link thinking, hmmm . . . what is this thing. Then I go to the googles and see some pics and DAMN, I'm thinking now about selling some stuff to fund this $3k rifle configuration that I literally seconds ago did not even know existed. Grrr. . .

The designer of the gun had clearly not been instructed to beat about the bush. 'Make it evil,' he'd been told. 'Make it totally clear that this gun has a right end and a wrong end. Make it totally clear to anyone standing at the wrong end that things are going badly for them. If that means sticking all sort of spikes and prongs and blackened bits all over it then so be it. This is not a gun for hanging over the fireplace or sticking in the umbrella stand, it is a gun for going out and making people miserable with.'

I've got my eye on that one too. Last I checked I found next to nothing on the internet in terms of first hand stuff. It seems to be kind of niche. If it performs like I think it would, it might be able to edge out the SCAR. Assuming it's durable. And same for the Bren 2. Accuracy is a question mark on both those for me. But dam B&T just screams quality generally speaking. Can't imagine the 308 isn't the same story. I want it to suck cause the price tag gives me anxiety. The APC 45 is another one I purposefully ignore.

Jeez, no kidding.
This thread could use some pictures...
Here's the carbine version with MagPul ACR stock:

They certainly seem very high priced.

It reminds me of the Robinson Arms XCR.
Unlike the official B&T options, that stock looks like it belongs.
TBH, I haven’t been following the SCAR and competitors other too closely, but is there a new standard for detachable stocks that these rifles all use? Or is there some custom B&T to ACR stock adaptor they are using?
The GB link at 3899.00 is a bridge too far for my pocket book.
There’s a company that makes adapter blocks, Dan Haga Designs I think. The ACR stock looks great on the B&T but I’d wonder what the cheek weld would be like. It might be great, or a little too high. Really would like to see it in person.

Yep, Dan Haga adapters.
I really want one but already have two SCAR 17S and a 20S on order. Hard to justify buying yet another 308 semi at these prices. The one incontestable advantage the B&T has over the SCAR is that it’s imported as a pistol so you can put a brace on it with a pin/welded short barrel. The SCAR 17S is only offered as a rifle so SBR is the only route to a shorter barrel.
