This upper goes on my Armalate AR10 RAW lower to sometimes replace the 20" A2 upper
Armalite uppers do not really work on DPMS/Fulton etc lowers - nor vice versa. (Noveske N6, AeroPrecision, Aircraft Armament (limited production) all make Armalite-compatible lowers.)
So you should be able to build a $1100ish AR10 if you can get a receiver for a few hundred bux.
Thanks, Bill. Yea - I also forgot to mention that the Armalite pattern is preferred. I'll see if I can find an N6 lower somewhere.
