New to the forum, pretty sure this is the right place for this topic.

So for the longest time I have really been interested in LaRue OBRs. I have done a lot of research into them and read nothing but excellent reviews about them. Having handled one at my local gun shop, I am impressed by the quality of the rifle, although I have never been able to fire one. But are they really worth the 3300 price tag? By the time I would add a new stock, replace the flash hider with a muzzle brake, get a bipod and a Leupold or Nightforce optic for it, we are talking about a rifle that is well over 5k.

So with that in mind, does anyone here think it would be plausible to say that you could build your own .308 rifle that could perform as well (or outperform) a Larue OBR? Ad if you could would it be significantly cheaper?

I appreciate the help anyone can give me.

I ran an OBR during my last trip to Texas (not mine, another guy wanted to run my 7WSM so we traded). It was awesome to say the least. I'm pretty sure he didn't clean it the entire week either and never had any issues (estimate of about 2500 rounds). Would I buy one? No, but I'm a bolt guy.

As for the build question? I have no idea.

I dont think it would be that hard to build something comprable accuracy wise for less. Real question is how hard is it to get all of the needed parts in a timely manner. It can be done though.
