I am thinking I want one. Any suggestions from experienced AR-10 users out there? Looking for brand evaluations and info about accuracy...what works.
I am learning that standardization/interchangeability of parts is not a given for this platform. I may just buy one, or just get a kit and order the lower from whoever sells the other parts...so far psa seems to be the only one who offers a kit. I haven't looked into this much yet though. I may find more when I get serious about getting the gun.I built a 308 AR last winter, be aware that all parts are not compatible like a 556 AR. Tho meaning in general the upper and lower musk be if the same design. I have a DPMS upper with a custom barrel 24" stainless and a Palmetto lower. Another learning curve was that 308 cycle better and are tighter groupers than 7.62 x 62. That later are a lighter load than the hunting 308s. I have reloaded yet so that could change. I enjoy mine although it's on the heavy side, really no recoil. I have a Redfield tac type scope on it.
Nice rifle. I doubt I could get used to that stock but who knows. I have never seen one like that. I can't wait until I can do my first build. It will be an AR15 and then maybe an AR10. But, I may just buy the 10. We shall see.Check this one out my son built off a Armilite. He has a shoulder injury and putting the sock lower not only made felt recoil better the cheek weld and scope mount improved un believably. That's me in the pic, he was having such a ball shooting it I didn't think to get a pic of him with it. The load that's most accurate that he's comfortable with is 45.2 of BL-C2 under a Speer Gameking 165 BTSP. Clocks right at 2600 fps.
