    Is there a LPK specific to an AR-10 (actually DPMS) lower? I built this when still in California and used a regular .556 LKP with the bullet-button, not the standard mag release. The mag button fit just fine.

    I've removed the BB's. The .556 builds work fine but I have run into an issue on the 7.62 lower: I can only get one complete turn on the on the Mag Release and am not comfortable. If there is a specific mag release for a 7.62 version where the threaded part is about 3/16 longer I would buy that.

    I’m 99% sure it’s the same as any MIL-spec AR lower...?

    When I search for AR10 LPK on PSA’s website, it pulls up AR LPK’s with no distinction.

    Does DPMS not sell that part individually? AR10s are a different beast between brands. Easiest thing is to get LPK parts from same manufacturer.

    I should have been clearer....the lower is from VC Defense. It's DPMS compatible. Everything else fits perfectly. Think I'll call them when they open.

    Yep, they have everything I need......the mag catch is a bit longer than the 5.56 version (they said the lower is a bit wider which makes sense.)
