 JP Enterprises LRP-07 Rifle Worth the Money?

I may be asking for the impossible but here we go.....

I have been saving my pennies for 8 months and I have about 5 more months of saving
to buy the semi-automatic long range precision rifle of my dreams. I have made a list of what I am considering buying in my order of preference thus far:

1. Jp-Rifles .260 All of the bells and whistles: http://www.jprifles.com/1.2.5.php it will be about $3600 Out the door (OTD) before Optics.

2. Ga Precision .260 for about 2700 otd before optics, http://www.gaprecision.net/AR10.html

3. Fulton Arms Titan .308 all bells and whistles for about 2700 OTD.

4. The DMPS .260 With all bells and whistles (bipod, scope mounts, etc) for about 2500 OTD.


5. Armalite AR-10T then putting on a Magpul, new trigger ETC. $2,700 OTD

6 Lastly an Accuracy Systems Inc in 260/.300 WSM. 2,700 OTD (I have never seen a single review of any of these rifles anywhere but thier website) Has anyone ever shot one of these or have any expierence with this company? Not to be confused with Accuarcy International. http://www.accuracysystemsinc.com/index.php



I am looking for input via first person. I am open to hearing I hate xxx brand or I love yyy brand as long is there is some first/second hand exp. What is not valuable input is "DPMS sucks because my brothers buddy knows a guy who said they always suck." I am a Navy guy that wants the most accurate, reliable rifle regardless of cost. I have been an internet commando that has scoured the internet and I have not seen a single review of the JP rifles .308. I am willing to spend 4,000 dollars to get the best of the above mentioned rifles. I just want to know I am getting the best. I have thrown out the Knights Armament due to wait time. This is a difficult purchase for me because I have never shot any of the above rifles so I have to rely on reviews. Sorry for the long post, but I have been mulling this decision for a long time and I will certainly value input from those that are more experienced particularly if they back up their argument. Since I know someone will ask what I am using it for I will say that I am going to "try" and hit targets up to 800 yards away with the best precision that I can afford.
Thanks in Advance,
L040.

**EDIT**
I changed the order of my prefs....

Yes the JP is awsome.

JP doesnt have the tacticool factor, but it flat out shoots as do all JP products.

After shooting one at 500 yards I have to say that it is a freaking tack driver. With the ACOG TA11, I was ringing pepper poppers with ease and was able to catch them on the up swing as well.

Was that that GA or or JP? The more I read the more I start to think that either gun will be beyond my capability an since the GAP is nearly 1,000 Cheaper I think that is going to be my choice.

The JP appears to be an ASA receiver set with a shortened mag well.

Tough call, I would go with the GAP or the AI. See if you can get your hands on a AI, see if you like the stock, if not, go with the GAP Either way you'll have a great rifle

Polytech

Disreguard the AI, I read the last option as Accuracy International, GAP GUN ALL THE WAY!

ASi Rifles are nail driving s.o.b. s. I don't have a ton of experience with them (only got it two weeks ago), but I have one chambered for .243wssm, and it is sub MOA at 200 yards. Matter of fact, my brother, father and I shot consecutive .250-.270 groups at 100 yards this last weekend. Obviously these are using handloads that are slightly lower pressure than I load for my bolt action in the same caliber, but I am completely stunned by their accuracy! I'd really like to get a 6.5 Grendel setup from them now that I have the .243wssm. I can't imagine what kind of accuracy that particular round can get out of their setups...

Thanks for the input, I have been looking for some feedback about ASI.

For 4000 you can get Barret's new 416 sniper rifle. It is a bolt gun though
