So as far as not being anything close to a combat rifle.
1. It's held together with a bunch of screws etc. You absolutely wouldn't want to strip it down in anything less than an indoor controlled
2. The near infinite gas settings mean you've got a lot of settings that aren't going to work sometimes even between different lots of the same
3. It's just not sturdy enough in some ways, and the plastic feels kinda cheap.
Onto the MDR it's been coming soon for 2-3+ years by now.
AFAIK there is or will be a Cali legal RDB featureless gun but I don't know much about it because I don't and won't live in ban states.
Unfortunately the exact feature set you want just isn't available in mass produced off the shelf guns. With a little work and piecing together though
you can get something that will suit you.
My recommendation for you is still honestly the dpms G2. It's fairly light and compact for a .308 rifle, and DEFINITELY lower cost. As a lefty I used
to obsess over left handed models too, but really the g2 will do what you want and cost enough less for you to pick up a $600-$800 optic and a good
return to zero mount for the optic for a little less than many of the other options which probably won't even come with a set of backup iron
The Olympic arms one might be worth looking into too since with that you could get a $400 optic a decent mount and a 5.56 upper for the price of a g2
and expensive optic.
But I recommended the g2 over it on the basis that I've fired them and like them.
