Get a 5.56 and go have some fun with it first

Swap calibers later. Fun Now!

The Colt 901 is the only lower I know of that can interchange between a standard ar15 and ar10 upper, with the help of a magwell adapter for 5.56 size magazines. Another excpetion is a custome bolt action upper for larger rounds. I seem to remember reading a few years ago about seeing .308, .50 bmg, .300 win mag and .338 single shot bolt action uppers that will bolt to an ar15 lower. Not sure tho. But all these rounds are waaaaay to long to fit in a standard ar15 magazine well.


Here's a short list of ar15 compatible uppers (NOT COMPLETE) 6.8 spc, 5.7, 6.5 grendel, 7.62 x39, .300 blk, much much more.

For simplicity sake, don't mix and match Ar10 and Ar15 receivers and parts.
There are several pistol calibers that will work on an AR as well.
