I did a search with the custom search and regular search, nothing. I am starting a build and just want to educate myself. Any forums out there ?

Dont forget about the DPMS type platform. Lots of receivers available for GREAT prices and you can use the awesome PMAGs for them.

fcr, what platform do you plan on building? Just my personal opinion but I'd go with a dpms pattern rifle. JD machine makes awesome matched upper/lower combo's. They are dpms patterned and can use the new 7.62 pmags. Cproducts 10rnd mags are $15, I think ar-10 mags are a little more expensive or harder to come by.

Good deals on mags from these guys.

Here is a pic of my optic-less 308 made with the JD machine receivers.

You have good taste, that is what I will be getting. Barrel is here, Noveske 21".

Noveske is of the "armalite" platform, not "DPMS", so be careful of components you buy.

I think that as long as you use the correct barrel nut for the upper it will work. Not sure though, I bought a cheap dpms stainless 24" barrel and had it cut down to 19" and threaded for a comp.

Just got my lower and the upper is being made, Armalite.
