First class rifle for the money. They are a bit heavy but all .308 AR style rifles are heavy. Factory triggers suck but that can be remedied with a RRA 2 stage for under $100. Every one I have seen and/or shot was very accurate. By that I mean moa or better with quality ammo.

I have one in the 243. Very accurate, and I haven't noticed a long trigger pull on mine.

I have DPMS 24 inch SS and I put a Jared 3 lb. trigger in mine and got it down to 36 oz. Love it!

As mentioned above, they are heavy. I have used a 308 for deer hunting the past 15 years, and the R-25 is nice... and did I say heavy? It's a beast compared to the tow Remington Model 7's that I've had.

Slap a Geissele in it and you won't have any more trigger complaints.
