it's about time for me to start a new build. I had a ar my buddy helped me build and i sold it a few months back. Now i want another ar but i'm trying to decide if i want a ar15 again or try and ar10 build. Now ar15 lowers can be found for $150 at most places easily. The ar10 lowers i have found online and at local stores are going for 500+. Is there a reason for the 308 ar10 lowers are so much more expensive then the ar15s? Is there a place that sells a .308 lower decently cheaper?

I thought AR10's were all banned.

No such thing as a cheap AR 10 lower. Although CWS does carry the Aero brand lower for 299.00

The problem with AR10/AR308 style uppers is that there is no set of standards for them.

AR15's are a milspec standard and only cut by a few different manufacturers that brand them for the different names selling them.

There are two basic families of AR308's based on the style of upper that will be installed. The two styles are Armalite and DPMS. There being no standards, some AR308 lowers take a normal AR15 lower parts kit, some take a modified parts kit. Some use a Armalite style magazine, some use a DPMS style magazine, and still others use FAL style mags or HK style mags.

The cheapest AR308 lower I've seen was around 350$, and don't expect them to get any lower than that any time soon.

It's just the way of the game :(
