Default AR Debate.

So me and my dad are having a HEATED debate on: If you can drop any upper receiver chambered in 6.8 spc into a regular AR lower, use 6.8 spc mags, and have a fully fuctional rifle.

Well, can you?

Yes you can drop a complete 6.8 upper on an AR 15 lower.! That is the beauty of the AR platform.

I don't see why not... but I've been wrong before.

Technically not a complete win. You cannot drop ANY 6.8 SPC chambered upper on an AR lower. It must be a milspec AR15 upper.
