Default AR-10 build parts



Advertise Here

Okay, guys, got one google and bing aren't helping me with. I am trying to get two AR-10 builds done. One is going to be the standard A2 stock with free floated upper. THAT is the easy one.

Problem comes with the other one, I am trying to find an AR-10 stock along the lines of the VLTOR ARMS stock, and no luck. Am I just stuck with the Magpul PRS stock?

Is there an AR-10 version of the SOPMOD collapsible stock? I am after good cheekweld and rise to the scope.

Never done a 10 before, so what parts are not interchangeable?

Any help is really appreciated.

An AR-10 is not like an AR-15 build. It was never adopted by the military so there is no standard "mil-spec" like their is for the 15. You have to get the right upper with the right lower. Then some uppers that work with the same lowers will have different rail heights. This site is a good starting point for info. https://308ar.com/

Any AR15 stock should work on your AR10 build as long as you're aware of which tube you have?

Buffer/spring is different and come in kits.

Bolt is different

Mag release button is not long enough so:

Takedown pins are different

Bolt stop lever is different

Some grips will have fitment issues due to shape of receiver.

Magazine release roll pin is usually a screw that comes with .308 parts kit.

Since there is no mil spec upper/lower fit can vary and not be ascetically pleasing.


This is a good guide.

Looking at the wing tactical link, oh, boy. I am wanting to use PSA gen 2 lower receivers as a starting point. Guess I had better start researching and making phone calls.

Sounds like you are building an AR 308
Not an AR10
PSA or Aero should work
Also, Davidson Defense
Otherwise ArmaLite for AR10
