I've been contemplating starting from scratch and building one from the ground up. Thanks again for the advice! This forum is a wealth of knowledge.
Just so you know,the AR10 type platforms are not like the AR15 platform. You need to do some research into each brand to see what accessories will work with each brand.
I'm a big fan of Rock River,but the LAR-8 platform will only work with accessories made for it,and it uses FAL type magazines.
Armalite,makes 2 different styles of AR10 lowers,so you need to look at what your wanting.
DPMS,Is what I went with on an AR10 type platform.They offered a bigger selection of calibers,and there's a bigger selection of aftermarket parts that can be added to them.
With the AR10's,you just can't mix and match parts from one brand to another.
