AR-10 vs DPMS LR308 Frustration and Ideas


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I am new to this board and super excited to have found a home for my new obsession. I recently acquired an Armalite AR10A2, I decided I wanted to build it into my dream rifle, and have run into a few frustrations. First is that the top is an A2 upper with the fixed carry handle and I dislike this. I am having a terrible time finding a flattop upper that I like. I am almost to the point of selling it and getting a DPMS as a result.  What I am looking for is at least a 20" match grade barrel, threaded barrel, Forward assist, something similar to here at http://www.762sass.com/product.php?p=384&cid=1&session=8f1bbca482c9023818054a6ca9d29039 

Anyone have any suggestions or would going with DPMS be a good idea since the armalite parts are so difficult to find?

I ended up keeping the A2 as is, and somehow convinced the wife to let me buy a DPMS SASS! Not sure how I pulled that off. I am waiting on some higher scope mounts from midway, then I will go out to my range and zero it to 100yds for the iron sights and 200 for the scope I think. Though my dope card for my remmy 700 is set for 300 yards but I am not sure yet. 300 is as far as my local range goes, takes about 2 hours to get out to the one that has 100-1000 yd ranges. Anyway I'll post pics of it and the few modifications I am about to do. Mainly the grip, the one that comes with the SASS doesn't fit my hands and honestly feels cheap too.
