New to AR10. Former Marine and competitive shooter. (USPSA & 3gun

Recommended Posts

New guy from FL. In the process of building an AR10. Buying the rifle from a friend. He had everything except for the barrel, gas block, and gas tube. He had the rifle built in a different caliber, and sold that barrel setup. Now I'm buying it to build a competition / hunting rifle.

Welcome from Iowa, via Arkansas!

Building an AR-10 or a 308 AR? Hate to be picky on nomenclature but make sure you understand the difference before you start buying parts or you will have problems. Do a bunch of searching and reading here and you will find what you need.

Edit; Thought I better add, make sure the parts supplier knows the difference as well, many call DPMS pattern parts AR-10 parts causing much grief.

I am building with the help of a friend that works at a local gun manufacturer. He is WAY more knowledgeable that I am. He's basically telling me to give him the specs I want, and he'll get the parts and help me build it. He already has most of the parts I want, just deciding on barrel now.

Have you heard of Live Free Armory? 

I have. They are on the other coast. I looked at them a while back. Was planning to buy from them, but got a really good deal on from a friend. He was getting together parts for a build, had about 60% of the parts, and won decided not to build the rifle since he already had a 308 bolt gun. I picked up the parts from him pretty cheap. Another friend that works at Praestlor Arms is helping me with the rest of the build.
