    Is BadA$$ery a word?

    Well, it should be because this AR10 exhibits a lot of bad a$$ features.

    Here we have a Ruger SR762, chambed in 7.62x51 NATO (.308) that I recently acquired. It goes well with the Ruger SR556 I purchased last year. The SR556 was Ruger's first AR pattern rifle featuring a piston-driven gas operating system.

    The piston system prevents gas, and associated fouling, from entering the action as in direct-impingement guns. Instead, the gas interfaces with a piston that in turn drives a transfer rod to cycle the bolt. This results in a cooler running bolt carrier group, less fouling and increased reliability when cleaning your rifle is not possible given your particular circumstances, such as a never ending horde of zombies approaching. I'd rather not be reduced to beating them over the heads with a club in the form of a rifle if I can help it.

    But, enough words, let's get to the pictures, shall we?

    More to come after I get the optic mounted, the muzzle brake and handguards installed and we have a decent weather day here so I can get out to the range and give it a go.

    Heres my tax stamped 10" Ak47 SBR 7.62x39 of fun. Worth every minute of the 6 month wait to get the tax stamp for it. I have a cheap optic on it and 100 yards its a 3 inch group. Its old school ugly and its a machine that needs no attention.
