Hey all. I'm currently putting together an Armalite-pattern AR-10. I've been searching and searching and I cannot find ANY upper receivers or upper parts that are compatible with Armalite-pattern AR-10 lower receivers. Every single part I have seen has been DPMS-specific. Does anyone know of any websites that sell Armalite-pattern AR-10 upper receivers and upper parts?

only other armalite compatible upper assemblies are from noveske. Aero precision makes Armalite pattern AR-10 style lowers. That's all I can think of offhand

The parts and mags are more expensive than Dpms pattern.check out ar15.com or 7.62sass.com they have Armalite parts in stock.

After reading this I realized the one place I did not check was armalite's website. I guess I didn't do this subconsciously because "Armalite AR-10"s are illegal in cali...but that doesn't make the parts illegal. I checked the site and they do sell parts, albiet they are expensive.

Yea, I bought the lower receiver a few years ago. I wish I knew more about guns back then and had done more research. I have learned my lesson though.

Yea, I'd like to think my foo is strong, but I couldn't find anything :/ It's very likely I am just not using the correct search phrases. Anything like "ar-10 upper receiver" or "308 upper receiver" gives me DPMS stuff only.
