308 & AR10 80 Lower

The "AR-10" 80% Lower (designed for the LR-308 platform by DPMS) is a step up from the AR-15 platform in performance and capability. By upgrading from 5.56 NATO to .308 Winchester or 7.62x51mm NATO rounds, you'll easily achieve the ability to ring steel out to 700+ yards. The LR-308 lower receiver is the big brother to the 5.56 NATO receiver and packs a bigger punch while allowing you to customize your build from scratch.

Completing Your Lower Receiver

The 80% lower is a foundation of any custom AR-10-type / LR-308 build. The .308 lower itself is the key to building not only a custom rifle, but also thee route to build a rifle WITHOUT an FFL (Federal Firearm License) transfer or paperwork. According to the ATF and federal law, the 80% lower is not considered a firearm since it is only partially complete. Officially called a receiver blank, the unit requires you, the builder, to finish the last 20% of machining requirements, resulting in a 100% complete, stripped lower receiver. This is accomplished with the help of an AR-10/LR-308 Jig. The jig provides the necessary templates, depth guides, sidewalls, and tooling to get the job done.

Assembling Your Lower & Final Build

There are countless manufacturers of .308-caliber AR parts on the market today. The AR-10 by ArmaLite is not included within this market. Instead, the LR-308 platform is now the platform of choice. To complete your rifle, we recommend checking out the available build kits which include a ready-to-fire upper, bolt carrier group, lower parts kit, and compatible buffer assembly with buttstock.

- No FFL required 

- No serialization required under federal law
- Minimal technical skills required to complete
- Compatible with all DPMS LR-308 components
