You can't see it in that pic, but it's got a standard mag release and a stack of 20rd PMags.

The best AR in .308/7.62x51mm in my opinion...

Fixed it for you.;) (My Aero/Armalite AR-10 Carbine has over 10K rounds through it without a single failure. It will eat whatever I feed it without bitcching. It's been cleaned maybe 4 times....Oh, and it still shoots .75 moa consistently.:cool:)

Call Nathan direct and ask. He's a fun guy to talk to!

Iron Ridge Arms is another manufacturer that does DPMS and AR-10 lowers: http://www.ironridgeguns.com/

And I must say, in my opinion, they're the sexiest on the market.

glad this thread came up, maybe there will be some manufacturers i havent seen yet. still looking for one that has a lower that will mate nicely with a knights armament SR25 EMR upper. i know lmt mws will, but they dont have lowers for sale yet.

The Mega lowers should work, same with the REPR and Larue ones IIRC.

You are still left with the issue of having to buy the whole rifle though (for the REPR and Larue).

Maybe you should just sell your upper and buy a KAC Mk11. They are off list.

POF gets my vote!


Gun never misses a beat and has exceptional accuracy. It gives many bolt guns a run for their money. Half inch groups all day long if I do my part LOL.


I would steer clear of Knights .308 platform many gripes about it over at the hide.

Kaiser has a great design and looks like a solid shooter and they have carbon fiber barrel options.

J&J armory would be another outfit to consider as they have one hell of a setup.

havent seen those gripes, guess i should look at s-hide more closely. i know the older kac's were an issue. as far as buying the mk11.... debated it. but dont think i'd spend 8k just to be legal and not have lower issues.

If you see the price on the lowers for 308's there's no one that come close to that low price already.

what about the 308 barrels? can I use any 308 barrels for any of the upper brands mentioned here?

Yes, except for the LMT. LMT has a special quick change barrel setup.

But typically people say if you go with an Armalite type bbl, stay with an Armalite type BCG, and same w DPMS. Thats what I have read, I have never mixed an matched so for all I know it could be possible. Wouldnt hurt to stay with the same type though.
