Balanced, accurate, and well made, the Overwatch is more portable than any AR-10 and more powerful than smaller-caliber AR-15s. It is an excellent Modern Sporting Rifle.

When compared to the 308 Winchester-chambered Heckler & Koch MK762 at left and the Core30 6.5 Creedmoor AR-10 rifles, itís no wonder the Alexander Arms 6.5 Grendel Overwatch, center, was more portable. Complete 6.5 Grendel top ends are available from Alexander Arms to fit on your current AR-15 lower ($882).
The satiny anodized finish of the Overwatch rifle was, in our view, much nicer than the exterior cosmetics found on other rifles. Note the clean, tight fit of the pins and levers.
More like a precision rifle than todayís CQB carbine, two sling studs were supplied, typically one for a bipod and the other for a sling. A $24 Base-to-Stud adaptor from Grovtec.com let us use our QD sling swivel.
