I know almost everyone that makes the 5.56 OLLs and a couple of companies that make the 6.8 OLLs. I want to build a couple 6.8s, but I want to have a wide variety to choose from. Does anyone have a good list of manufacturers that make 6.8 OLLs.

Thanks for your help.:cool:

6.8 uppers use the same lower as the standard 5.56 lower.


Do you want a rollmark that says "Caliber 6.8 SPC"??

The lower is the same both 5.56 and the 6.8SPC calibers.

I have a 6.8SPC marked Ameetec lower if that is what you are talking about.

Lowers are identical for both 5.56 and 6.8.

If you are rich enough to spend $20 more (for each receiver) to get "6.8" engraving, just go ahead. Stag and Ameetec have them.

I'd stick with my MEGA Gator marked "MULTI".:D

so you guys are saying that I can use a 5.56 lower receiver and attach the mags for the 6.8 and attach an upper for the 6.8 and that is all I need? I can use the 5.56 lower receiver for either.


sorry, I'm a little bit confused with what you guys are saying.

Thanks

From my research the only thing different from a 5.56 to a 6.8 is barrel, bolt and magazine.

They use the exact same lowers, however if you are set on having a lower marked 6.8 there are some options available such as the ameetec or stag. Just buy any AR OLL and build your 6.8! Dont worry about the caliber markings! :cool:

Companies that offer 6.8 SPC marked receivers:

Stag
Ameetec
Barrett
Ratworx
Grenadier Precision

Those are the only companies I can recall off the top of my head that make 6.8 SPC marked receivers.

Or you can go for the "multi-cal" lower that will work with just about any round you chosse.:)
