Regarding the GII, I think Harrison cannot tool up to produce his NextGen .308 ARs fast enough because I dunno man, there sure seems to be a lot of guys making excuses for their thousand+ dollar rigs over at ARFCOM.  "Oh well, no big deal."  Huh??  This reminds me of the Ruger groupies over on that forum when the new Ruger AR was chewing itself up or the new 1911s were showing up rusted and popping front sights in 50 rounds.  Quality control and good engineering IS A BIG DEAL.  I had a Bushmaster LR-308 give me this kind of crap, it only cost me $800, and I was rightly pissed about it!  When was the last time you dropped a GRAND on a bolt rifle and didn't expect it to be perfect/flawless out of the box for that kind of money?  I know that's apples/oranges, but sheesh....

Warning - harsh language in this one (the guy talks like I did back in the infantry, which makes me chuckle, but I understand some folks may not like it):

Now I do understand that a rifle from Harrison will not be a thousand dollars, but it'll also come with a match barrel, a match trigger, and shoot like a house on fire!  You take these GIIs that come with crap triggers and spend some time getting them to not chew themselves up (as I had to with my Bushy, which is a post DPMS merger LR-308) and run right and guess what - you're getting close to the same money.  And you had to screw around a whole bunch.  Maybe some folks like that, and that's cool, but then call it a parts kit - not a "newest bestest thing".

By the way, aside from carrying a pound of unwanted heft around (just like I carry 20 pounds of unwanted heft around), my $800 old-model R-25 is perfect.  Runs great and shoots great.  Kind of like me!  I'm not sure the "next best thing" is all that "bestest" from what I'm reading...despite that LRPFFFPTH dude thinking they're the second coming...

And yes, that post is a bit snarky and I know we don't want this forum to devolve to that kind of thing.  I'm just saying/asking: A brand new AR that chews/scratches itself up with a garbage trigger and shoots into 2"?  Seriously??

I saw all of that. Some aftermarket AR15 triggers do not work well in AR10s or DPMS LR rifles.  None of the drop in types with coil springs are strong enough to set off the 308 primers without the heavy spring option.
Geissele DMR triggers hit the LR308 Receivers too. I'll have to make a list of triggers that work in the LR lowers without modification.
