I tried doing some research but I can't seem to find a definitive answer. Will a UBR stock fit and function correctly on an AR10 lower? From what I can tell it looks like it will but I want to be sure.

After some more research it likes it'll work but I need a 308 buffer and spring. If I'm mistaken feel free to chime in.

Works perfectly. I'd suggest using Slash's CAR-10 buffer. You can find him on AR15.com.

^that things is nice!

i swear that AR10 lower looks like it was meant to be mated with a Vltor Modular upper

Thanks a lot sevans! That's a great looking set up by the way.

Nice looking piece.

Only one suggestion, look into Mark Burkett's 45deg doctor mount.

Awesome rifle. Give us the specs including optics!

Question about the CAR-10 buffer...

What is it about the CAR-10 buffer (at 5.4 oz) that makes it better than a standard H3 buffer (at 5.4 oz).

There is quite a price difference for the same weight buffer so curious what makes the CAR-10 work better. Can someone that has both a CAR-10 buffer and a standard carbine AR-15 buffer measure them both and let me know if there is a length difference. Thanks in advance.

Thanks for all the compliments guys.

It's a great rifle, probably my favorite one in the safe. It's an 18" Noveske N6 with a 3.5x35mm acog. That picture is pretty old and the red dot is no longer installed. It shoots better than it looks. :)

bump for input on the H3 vs CAR-10 buffer. From some internet sleuthing I've determined that the CAR-10 buffer is 3/4" shorter than an AR carbine buffer, but weighs the same as an H3 carbine buffer. Could someone get an H3 to work properly with the UBR if they used an A2 spring with some coils clipped off the end, or a carbine spring, and an H3 buffer? If so that would save at least $60. Anybody have experience trying this?

I'd like to know too.

beuller? beuller? anyone know this? from short research I've done, it seems to be that the slash buffer is "shorter?" Is that right? To make it fit in a UBR due to the UBR's buffer tube?

The length.
Think about how much longer 308 rounds and magazines are than their 223 counterparts.
In order to get that longer round to feed, you need more bolt carrier stroke.
In order to use the same length buffer tubes and stocks, you need a shorter buffer and a proper 308 carbine buffer spring.
