Default AR-10 build

Hey guys I am looking to build an AR-10. I was wondering if anyone could recommend where to start. Which lower to use and where the best place to find them. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Mods please move.

OP, please post such questions in the correct area.

Regarding the AR10 platform keep in mind that there are 2 proprietary platforms - Armalite and DPMS, which are NOT compatible with each other.

Do some research on the 2 then decide which one you want to go with. Outside of that it's pretty similar to the AR15 platform. Start with a lower receiver (forged, billet) and begin the build.

Good luck, keep us updated and include pics

If you're going in the Armalite camp I have an AR-10 lower for sale. Details are in the classified section. Price is negotiable as is a trade.
