  1. I'll take that rail off that rifle if you want to part it out brother!

    WTB Armalite AR10 non forward assist stripped upper

    I've been searching around the internet like crazy with all the google-fu i could muster, and still have only found pictures of this upper, but no mention of nomenclature or mfg date range. Does anyone know what name these uppers go by or if they were ever sold separately by Armalite?
  3. I know these pop every once in a while when someone swpaps out for a JP bolt or parts out an MWS upper. Don't care if it's used. Fastest way is to text me- 623 302 0842 -John

    Why is building an AR10 so damn complicated?

    It looks super sick dude. I'm thinking now, in lieu of getting an armalite AR10A upper/lower, of going with either the matrix arms set or the M5. The position of the FA on the Matrix is bothersome to me, but the curved receiver of the M5 just doesn't do it for me. Can't decide the lesser of two evils. Maybe I'll see if i can't scare up a slick armalite flattop upper here pretty soon. Now, i know what the answer is before i ask it, but I'll ask anyway- can i use an Armalite bolt in a DPMS carrier? The Lantac heavy EBCG caught my eye, and i thought about going the tuned heavy mass route, rather than the light mass JP route. It looks like the Lantac has DPMS bolt dimensions though. I've actually read that some people managed to stuff a DPMS bolt in an Armalite carrier and it headspaced okay.
  5. I'm looking for an Armalite AR10 upper w/o forward assist. Must be a flattop. If it has a dust cover, I'll take it as well. I understand these are a little harder to track down, but I feel like I might get lucky posting here! Fastest way to get ahold of me is via text- so PM me for my number. Thanks! -John

    That picture is interesting. That appears to be the Armalite 13.5" mid gas barrel that is available on their website. What puzzles me is the fact that it can go on the M5E1 upper, which i thought could only take DPMS barrel extensions, so what gives?

    So, as far as i can figure, you can put this rail on either. It came with a 16tpi and a 18tpi barrel nut, and the rail is at the Armalite/DPMS high .210 height. That 13.5" armalite barrel might be my only option as far as i can see, which means now i have to go the AR10 route- which is going to be harder to find the parts i want. Hence my interest in the Genesis upper and lower, but i havent seen anything from them lately.
  8. So, here's a little bit about my current woes: I've been wanting to build an AR10 SBR (possibly Form 2 it into a Post 86 MG) for awhile now. I wanted the rifle to look pretty close to a scaled up version of the MK18, with a no frills, forged upper and lower receiver, a DD 762 lite 12" rail, and maybe like a B5 Bravo or SOPMOD stock. I had some criteria that I wanted to accomplish, which is what is making this build so difficult to complete. 1. Armalite AR10 Style upper and lower. I think the radius of the DPMS style is hideous and rarely match up unless it is a well made set. 2. Slick upper: I have never been an advocate for a forward assist on AR type rifles, and even more so on 7.62 variants. If a 308 round doesn't want to go into battery for some reason, the last thing you should do is force it. 3. Armalite or DPMS height upper. I found my unicorn rail finally, so it needs to match up on height. 4. Needs to take SR/DPMS mags. Obviously; If i wanted hacked up and repurposed mags, I would buy a SCAR 17(JK, no I wouldn't) 5. I need a 13.5" barrel, chambered in 7.62x51, with a mid length gas port. 6. MAYBE a F/A BCG since it might end up as a posty MG. So, the problem is that most of these parts with these characteristics are either Armalite only, or DPMS only, which is infuriating. I found out about Genesis CNC, and it seemed like their Upper and 80% lower would be the ticket, but I can't tell if they're even in business still. I've called and emailed to no response. I could try to source a KAC upper and lower, but they are priced ridiculously, and I'm not that big of a fan. I would just get an Armalite SPR Mod 2 AR10A upper and lower, but Armalite is out of business while they are moving(I've been to their facility here in Phx, and I don't know what the holdup is). Plus, they insist on putting forward assists on their uppers. So, if anybody knows any companies that make the parts I need or can help point me in the right direction, I sure would appreciate it!

    Need help sourcing a handguard

    Yeah I talked to the guy and he wouldn't sell it to me unless he had buyers for the rest of the parts. I figure he's better off parting that rifle out to get his moneys worth, so maybe he'll change his mind.

    Need help sourcing a handguard

    Hi all, I'm new to the forum, and I have been looking for a certain rail to complete a build that is long overdue. I am looking for a Daniel Defense 12" 762 lite rail. It seems to have gone out of production a few years back, but I need one for a specific type of rifle I am building. I would appreciate any and all help anyone can give helping me track one down. Thanks! -JohnnyB

    Hi all, My name is John and I live in Peoria, AZ. A little background on myself- I've been shooting from a wee age; taught to shoot and hunt by my father and grandfather. My dad was on the Air Force academy rifle team while he was a cadet there and continued shooting competitively throughout my childhood in CA. He shot IMHSA and High power matches, and of course, drug me along. I began to shoot and compete in various disciplines through HS until I joined the Marines right after I graduated. After SOI (School of Infantry) in Camp Pendleton, I was stationed in Hawaii with 2nd Bn 3rd Marines as an 0351 Assaultman. I deployed to Afghanistan in 2005 and participated in a few combat operations to include Operation Red Wings. After we rotated back to HI, I took the Scout Sniper indoc, and out of 75 candidates, myself and 6 others made the cut. I deployed again with the STA platoon to Haditha in 2006 and extended my contract with the Marines to deploy to Fallujah in 2007. I left active service and came back home to AZ, where I joined a local reserve bulk fuel unit (the closest infantry reserve units were in Albequerque and Reno) and served as a platoon sergeant for 3 years. During that time, I went to the Colorado School of Trades for gunsmithing and graduated in 2012. My first job out of school was building rifles for McMillan. I started doing action fitting and prep work and quickly was promoted to lathe operator. After working there for a year, I got a job at Robar doing custom pistol and rifle work. Robar fell on thin times, so I got a job at KE arms in Tempe, AZ building AR15s and AR10s. After awhile, I decided I would rather work for myself and started my own company, Six Day Ordnance. My original intent was to import Galil parts kits from Israel and build classic Galil SARs and ARMS, but due to the cost constraints of US made receivers, that dream never really came to fruition. So now I'm sitting on a mountain of parts kits if anybody wants one or 20 haha. Since I was stationed in HI, I have continued to shoot competitively in multiple disciplines. I have shot USPSA, IDPA, 3 gun, smallbore silhouette, Team skeet, olympic trap, sporting clays and now PRS and my new favorite, NRL22. I am currently going to school again (learning never stops) for Production technology and CNC programming/machining. I also do gunsmithing and machinework when I can get it. So there's my intro. I typically shy away from gun forums, mostly for the fact that have to sift through 200 pages of BS to find information worth knowing; but I have heard good things about this forum and wanted to give it a shot. If any of you ever have any technical or gunmsithing-related questions, I will certainly answer any questions that I can. If anybody needs barrel work, or even general gunsmithing, I would be glad to give any forum members a discount on my work. I'll see you all out at the range! John Brooks Six Day Ordnance
