It's freaking 10 AM in the morning, people are at work and busy. I'm not obviously, but even someone bored like me doesn't know where to begin answering your question.

An AR-10 is simply an Armalite pattern rifle chambered in .308. You need to call up CMMG and just ask them what you just bought and if it is compatible with the Armalite pattern or the DPMS pattern or the G3 magazine version. ALL OF THEM ARE .308 CALIBER.

You most likely bought the AR-10 version in which case you need to get an Armalite/AR-10 compatible kit. But call and ask if your not sure, or post up a picture and I'm sure someone can help.

All of the CMMG 7.62/.308 lowers I've seen in this area are DPMS compatible.
all the best,

Go to AR15.com there are several threads on AR 10 / DPMS compatibility.

Simple. If your receiver is DPMS style, get a DPMS type .308 LPK. most Armalite type ones will specifically say AR-10 and not .308 AR

ditto. and it depends on the type of rifle that you are trying to build.

what kind are you going for?

From off the top of my head, the Armalite AR-10 Pattern Lowers require these unique parts...

1) Mag Catch
2) Pivot Pin
3) Take Down Pin
4) Bolt Catch

They are supposed to eventually have DPMS pattern, AR-10 pattern, and G3 mag pattern. Don't know in what stages of manufacture these are.
