Correct me if I'm wrong, but I assume that in the ar-15 platform, its the build of the upper receiver that produces outstanding accuracy (as long as there isn't play between the upper and lower)

Does the same apply for the ar-10 variants?
Say i get an ar-10 style lower receiver that is built by a manufacturer known for building crap, and the lower does end up being less than stellar. will it screw the firearm? Or will having a well built upper negate it?

what AR10 manufacture is known for building crap?

None of them are interchanegable so the point is moot. The AR-10 is not a consistent design....it's a generic term for a 7.62NATO AR. AR-10 is actually a trademark of Armalite Inc. Hence BAR-10, LAR-10 etc.

Armalite has to vigorously defend their TM of AR-10 because if they do not...it will end up like 'M4' which Colt recently lost exclusive tights to.

The AR-10(tm) is not the same rifle as the original AR-10 from the 50s that was the precursor to the AR-15, which I think is still a Colt (tm)........
