Ft Collins, CO –-(Ammoland.com)- FS 308 Update:

I’m currently in the process of testing the first copy of the Farnam Signature 308 Operator Rifle in 7.62×51 caliber.

They are being built by Keith Everett at www.m4precision.com. Keith is also continuing to build the FSM4, in 5.56×45 caliber, as there are many Operators who still want a copy, or two.

.308 WINCHESTER (7.62x51)

This first iteration of the FS308 is built on the excellent POF Revolution Rifle. All internals are NP3-coated. Keith has, of course, subsequently performed his legendary battle-rifle gunsmithing magic.

The next version will be built on the Robinson Arms XCR/M. Others will follow, based on the PTR/91, DSA SA58, and SA M1A SOCOM.

The RA/XCR/M version will be built and ready for testing this fall.

The POF Revolution version is equipped with a Bushnell 1×8 SMRS, just introduced by Bushnell. In fact, I have one of the first copies! The Vortex 1×8 Strike Eagle is similar and also very acceptable.

Perfect for this rifle!

In addition, the rifle has LaRue offset BUIS, to which one can transition instantly.

A co-axial Powertac E9 flashlight (1020 lumens) is forward-mounted on the left side of the forend.

A BFG Two-Point Sling, and a “Sneaky Bag” low-profile transport case completes the package.

It comes to you test-fired and sighted-in at 40/200 (both optic and BUIS).

It is immediately ready for duty.

In any event, I’m using it now, and it is wonderful. I’ve been running it with both Magpul and Lancer 20-round magazines. Both run well. Both are very acceptable.

When you show up with this rifle, you’re king-of-the-hill, as you’ll have range and penetration capabilities unavailable to those using 223 rifles.

I’ll keep everyone updated.

    1. Too bad the AR-doc in laporte shut down… Keith was my neighbor and we talked often about guns and cannabis… He spoke well of you but I can’t consider spending at your buisness if you are against people being free to own guns and pot as long as they don’t mix..

      How can you hold such an incongruous position on liberty? It’s dissapointing and hurting buisness!

    2. Appears that it’s being offered with an AimPoint Pro but if you want the light it costs extra. Barrel is Green Mountain 1/7 twist, trigger is 5.5 non-adjustable, blah blah blah, $2,500.00 introductory price. The blurb I saw didn’t mention anything about magazines so who knows. I have Lancer mags and like them. I use them on my 300 pistol.

      I might be jaded but for the money I might save a lot and go with a S&W X15 and drop in an American Gold trigger, add an AimPoint and still have bucks left over for a bunch of ammo.
