Should have this tomorrow. Anything I should know about this platform? Figured it was worth a shot for $899.

Ergos are Meh, but they are great shooters, mags are damn near free and thanks to HK fans theres a huge aftermarket part supply net to make things more modern if desired. Great way to get into .308.

Yep... I bought close to 200 of em when they were 99 cents each.
Sold them during the last scare for 10 bucks a pop. Thank you very much Mr. President... I love that guy. /:f

Nice guns. Keep your eye on the US made bolt/carrier package, as sometimes they break. The older guns used imported [HK, FMP, Rheinmetal] parts, but the supply is dwindling, so they are now US parts. Some people actually buy imported bolt/carrier groups to use in their new guns from Robert RTG. My gun is about 8 years old, & I love it. When I bought my mags, IO was selling them for 97 cents each if you bought 20. GARY
