The 7.62mm cartridge is too long for the magazine. You need to buy the complete gun, an Armalite AR-10

fight4yourrights is correct. Here are a couple links to manufacturers of .308 AR style firearms. None will work with an AR-15 lower though. [url]http://www.armalite.com/sales/catalog/rifles.htm[/url] Knights Armament also makes an AR-10 style firearm. Lost the link. And ASA corp makes one as well but I do not know about the quality of this one. [url]http://www.gunkits.com/308.html[/url]

They make a .50BMG upper; why not make a similar one for .308? [:)]

Coyote, There is a guy who lives in El Reno that usually has Armalite's in stock. Email me if you want his Email Addy. He hasn't been on the board in a while. Ben

The .50 BMG is a single shot & doesn't use the magazine well of the AR-15 lower. You could do the same for a .308, but most folks would want it to be a semi auto. The magazine well isn't long enough to accomodate the round. Probably most any round with an AOL equal or less than the 5.56mm would work.

Earthlink so too, as long as its MSN wasn't too wide.

This post got me to thinking. Would it be that hard to design an AR15 upper that used AR10 parts? Rotate the bolt 90 degrees clockwise, feed from the left with a FAL magazine (kinda like a Sten or Sterling), ejects cases through the magwell on the lower. The gas tube would run down the right side of the barrel instead of the top.
