    that’s almost as bad as forgetting your hearing protection. i went to pop off a few rounds the other day and darn near dropped the goods when the 1st bang rang out. 1st time i’ve done that. i packed it up & went back to the house, called it a day. my ear drums just started feeling normal again after 1 week

    you may want to check your AR 10 pattern before you buy other parts. there are mainly 2 different patterns

    i would say 3 since the “small Gen-2” frames hit the market.

    it’s been cycling ammo & putting rounds downrange since July so i could possibly know what i’m talking about.

    do you need pics with desc? or do about 5-more min of research & get it all straightened out on your own accord? let me know

    this is prob what you are ref to:

    “This leaves two main AR10 patterned rifles, the Armalite series and the DPMS series.“

    https://www.ammoland.com/2017/01/4-things-know-building-ar10-80-lower-receiver/#axzz62VOGmmRv

    but then there is also this:

    Small Frame AR10 vs. Full Size AR10: What's the difference?

    https://www.f4defense.com/4112-2/


    The Colt AR-10A was sized closer to todays AR-15 than the full sized AR-10’s/308 AR’s or what is now. Today we refer to this born again class of 308 AR as “Small Frame 308” or “Intermediate Frame 308” . Examples of this would be the DPMS G2, Colt 901, POF Revolution, Zev Tech Small Frame and Adams Arms Small Frame

    https://308ar.com/small-frame-308-ar/

    so 2 dif large frames & the small frame .308; that’s 3 at least.

    There are 2, colt and lr308, small and large pin. Lower uses ar 15 parts with larger mag well. Gen 2 has different bolt and extension - lugs changed. Upper has been lightened. Mil spec can be dimension, finish, materials or QA. Rifle is heavy carbine not bad.

    All you need is YouTube an order parts from midway. I built a Creedmoor from parts there besides the barrel I ordered from ballistic advantage.
