Just picked up first AR today. Stag upper and Territorial lower. Now nowhere on the rifle, except the tag that was on the upper, receipt and mag (5.56) says the caliber.

Where else can I found out what caliber it is if I get a different mag or lose the receipt?

pictures to come soon...

***** Found it. I was under the handguards. Had to remove then to see the markings. Thank for the help!! ***

AFAIK, the caliber will usually be marked on the barrel.

Also sometimes on the lower, next to the make/brand of the lower.

Also sometimes on the lower, next to the make/brand of the lower.right, but the lower markings should not be taken as gospel due the the ability for uppers to be easily swapped. A 5.56-marked lower could have anything from a .22lr to .50Beawolf upper on it without any outward difference.

That is why some/many lowers are coming marked MULTI for the caliber.
