P308 from Patriot Ordnance Factory, AAC Blackout 51-tooth FH/suppressor mount, Magpul PRS stock, 1/10" twist, NP3 finish (looks like matte stainless).  Has a smaller grip from Larue Tactical.  Specs at  Factory-provided muzzle brake, grip, and adjustable stock/carbine buffer tube will be included.

Condition:  Used, in good shape.  I've fired approx 500 rounds through it and have hunted with it multiple times.  There is no major damage, but there will be minor dings and scratches.
The Good:  Accurate.  I'm an average shot and I can consistently put three rounds of Black Hills 180 gr Accubond into less than 1" at 100 yds and three rounds of Hornady 168gr TAP into less than 1 1/4".  Function without a suppressor is flawless, with or without lube.  Piston system is reliable and keeps things clean.
The Bad:  The "Relentless Reliability" goes out the window fairly quickly with a suppressor.  I have other suppressed rifles, and things get dirty quickly, piston or not;  that's just the nature of suppressed autos.  With my other rifles, though, some lube keeps them running fine for a while even though at some point they'll cover your face with gunk.  This rifle typically can make it through 20-40 rounds before it starts to bog down and then will fail to go into battery.  Lube doesn't help much unless you dump enough in it to make a goopy, drippy mess all over the place.  After I'd shot several boxes with it suppressed, I set it to the side for about an hour while shooting another gun, and when I came back to shoot it again, it was locked up.  I had to break it open and dump lube all in it and let it sit and slowly work it loose.  On top of that, several of the Black Hills loads had the primer popped out when shooting suppressed.  One of them went in the magazine, which caused an easily-cleared malfunction, but one of them lodged in the recess by the cam pin, and, again, the rifle was locked up.  This time, it could not go into battery, nor could it be opened because the bcg was in the buffer tube.  Repeated cycling finally crushed the primer enough to let the bolt go forward enough to open it up and clear it out.  The bottom line is the rifle is great unsuppressed, unreliable suppressed in my experience.
Why I'm selling:  Want a greater degree of suppressed reliability.  I don't care for the AR10-sized platform;  just personal preference.  Interested in trying out a short-barrelled bolt-action .308 suppressed. 
Price:  $1800 for the rifle as described above, insured shipping by UPS included.  Cash/check/money order, two weeks for personal check to clear.  It's wearing a Trijicon 5-20x50 amber mil-dot scope in a Nightforce Unimount.  If you want the scope/mount, add $700.  I'll send the rifle in the plastic case provided by POF and will include several Pmags.  If you have a left-handed bolt in .308 or thereabouts, I'm open for trade.  Also interested in a left-handed 6.8 SPC II upper (preferably piston).  Also interested in a good scope for whatever I get next.  Trijicon 3-9 with green dot;  Leupold VX-R 3-9 or 4-12; mid-range Nightforce or IOR with solid, dependable illum, etc.  I don't want anything with adj parallax;  that's turned out to be a pain in a non-stand hunting gun.    I'm just north of Houston in The Woodlands. 
Contact:  Email (preferred)   Cell phone:  281-413-5814.  I work nights, so I almost never answer my phone, but if you'll leave a message I'll call you back.
