Last part came in on Friday and the build is done. For now...


Tactical Machining TM10 Stripped lower.
DPMS 24" Fluted Blackened Stainless Bull barrel assembly with Miculek comp
Magpul PR/S stock, Black. (The only part that was hard to findl)
ERGO Sure Grip with palm shelf.

Future upgrade: Trigger

Immediate need: Scope

Thanks to all who post here. I learned enough lurking to buy the right parts and assemble an AR10 pattern rifle.

Any advice on optics is welcomed. What magnification range is good and what is a good enough scope. I just can't believe that only Leupold makes a good scope.
Price range flexible. Only having to spend 500 would be great. 750 is not going to kill me. A grand or more might make my cry, but sometimes you shell out for quality and only have to cry once.

sounds like a nice rifle, I wasnt really happy with the DPMS trigger I put in my P308 lower build either.

What ranges are you wanting to reach? Plenty of lower priced options as far as scopes go, if you have a Bass Pro shop near you Id go look through a few.

I went with a Trijicon accupoint 3x9x40 which isnt much cheaper than the same sized Leupolds but its fine for me at 300 yards.. searching ebay could save some cash.
