Me either! I just have 'em in a couple of calibers. Currently a .223 wylde, 2 - in 5.56 & a 300 AAC Blackout.

I was just wondering what other caliber I could make with the lower if I got it

Any/all of the above! The upper assembly is usually the only part caliber specific. Not counting things like mag blocks for the pistol mags and special mags for 6.5/6.8. 6.5/6.8 also takes a different bolt head on a stock carrier.

5.56, 6.5/6.8, 22lr, 458/50 are the most common. Probably 95% of all AR's are in these calibers. Most of the real oddballs are a PITA to find parts for at the best of times. Lots of custom gunsmithing to get them to work. Good luck, and have fun building!

You could build what ever caliber you want on it, my spikes lower is also marked "multi" company's like spikes and aero precision started doing it to appease customers, As stated by texasgunner there's a ton of options most people buy these lowers to do custom builds on. People didn't like seeing 5.56 stamped on their .300blk builds so the companies make multi cal lowers. Plus some people use the same lower on different uppers in a diff cal so it made sense for companies.

As far as I know there's nothing legally holding you back from building whatever you want. But I am no lawyer

I've heard really good things about the fit/finish/quality of aero precision. If you've got the chance id buy it

I talked to the guy about 12 hours ago and he said that he had 20 lowers. It's a guy that runs an ffl out of his house about five miles away from my house.

You can also check out surplus ammo and arms. Aero makes their recievers and you can usually get them a little cheaper. Built two rifles now with Aero receivers and fit and finish is very good.
