What's your budget? I would just buy a complete upper receiver with iron sights. You can build the lower yourself very easily.
With a very brief look it seems like you can get a basic complete upper for under $800.

I wanted to keep it at or under $1000,if that's not possible then probably just build a ar15

The problem is that 10s cost more than 15s. If I only had $1k to spend, I'd put it into a 15. I'll let someone else comment on whether or not it is possible to build a sub $1k 10.

You can build one for under 1,000 but you can buy a complete Armalite rifle for cheaper sometimes. If you are going for a build try to find deals on an AEROPRECISION AR10 lower instead of a Armalite AR10. They make a lot of the blank lowers for ARMALITE and sometimes you can find a good deal on one. I know I did and my AR10 is a great rifle.

No need to specify ArmaLite. AR-10 is, by default, an ArmaLite.

I do know that Aero makes lowers that are compatible with AR10 uppers, but aren't they more expensive than AR10 lowers?

Well I got a good deal on my lower and the guy sold it to me cheaper than a competing Armalite or even DPMS and the "OTHER" Knock-off brands. He had a bunch of lowers from Aero Precision in his shop. I benefited from his little sale he had

Since ArmaLite is banned by name in Cali, your only choice would be the Aero or one other brand that I can't think of if you wanted to use an AR10 upper.

You could try a Noveske N6 lower for Cali, I think.

I believe that they are okay.

I love their shit of banning things by name.

You're right! Noveske and Aero Precision were my only options. We call them in cali "Off-List Lowers"

But they were cheaper, than EAgle Arms and Armalite. I'm an "LEO", and I can get banned lowers for a "work gun" but I decided to buy an off list lower since I can keep it after I leave.
