DPMS Gen 1 Style lower receiver for the 7.62x51/ 308 cartridge
This item must be sent to an FFL dealer
The AR-308® Receiver is designed to be stronger and lighter than anything on the market today. We invented the hybrid AR lower receiver and we used that experience in designing the AR-308. We have used our TN ARMS 15 lower in every caliber from .22 LR to 50 BMG. The AR-308 is 30% bigger and includes reinforcement in key areas. This lower receiver assembles just like an AR15 style lower. AR308 lpk is available here: https://tnarmsco.com/tn-arms-ar308-lower-part-kit/ with the roll pin (like an AR15) we use instead of a screw.
The AR-10 type rifle does not have dimensional standards like the AR-15 series does. Not all upper receivers will fit as well as others. We recommend upper receivers from Aero Precision, Head Down Products, Delta Tactical, and the Palmetto State Gen 2. Any AR-15 style trigger will fit fine.
Weight is 6.3 ounces
Great product fit up to all other parts, price was great, shipping was fast
Working fine so far. My o ly co.plaint would the lack of threading for the bolt catch pin. I wound up boring both of mine out with a Dremel and hitting it with a little lock-tite.
Despite the long leads times because covid the lower was at my ffl within 10 days. It looked great and still does. Everything went together as it should. The rifle shoots great! Thank you for a great product.
Excellent product light weight and well built
The lower shipped quickly, and looked great when it arrived. For comparison, this is about 4-5 oz lighter than an Aero M5. Despite the weight, it still feels sturdy, and the brass thread inserts do their job keeping everything held together well. I plan to order another in a different color.
Disclaimer: I ordered one of the blemished purple ones in early-mid 2020, so the issue I describe below might have been resolved later in the production run.
My only issue with the lower was that once the rifle was assembled, the bolt wouldn't reliably stay back. Without an empty magazine pushing on the catch, jostling the rifle caused the bolt to come loose and slide forward. I don't have this issue with my Aero build. From what I could find, this was because (on my lower), the slot for the bolt catch was about 0.01" too wide and the hole for the spring/pin was about 0.05" too deep. I'm confident that I can get around this with some shims, spacers, and TLC on my next lower. To me those 4 oz are worth the effort.
Easy to assemble the detent pin and spring for the safety has been relocated to the grip make it a quick and simple install. This is a great product and value for the money. I purchased 3 of these and I am looking forward to my next builds.
Top notch quality product from a top notch team!!
