Im looking for a lower receiver that can take dpms mags and can fit a Armalight upper i currently have a lot of dpms mags and a armalight upper. Kinda sucks right now hard to find one right now the only one i can think of is a knights armament one but obviously its illegal in the republic of kalifornia.

Aero owners correct me if i'm wrong but I do believe they accept the DPMS/sr-25 pattern mags

The issue is the upper reciever as well.

You would either have to remove the magazine stop shelf in the upper reciever or modify all the mags to clear the stop shelf.
I have done both of these to get Hesse 308 lowers to work.
Removing the stop shelves is the better way to go except that you won't be able to run the upper with armalite mags anymore afterwards.
Modifying the mags to clear the stop shelves creates more problems with the follower.

KAC uppers don't have the stop shelves.

I don't really recommend this, but the old Hesse HAR 25 used DPMS type mags (modified) and accepted Armalite AR 10 type uppers.

Nope, they take AR-10 mags.

What Randall said. If you want to go with a Hesse, shoot me a PM, I have a spare one to sell.
