Shopping. .243 side charger...... they have a 22 inch but I hunt from a shooting house, it's a real hassle when you want to change windows quickly. Still have to read up on what lower it works best with.

Sweating and Thinking about getting myself one of these also

Yeah,me too.
Lusting for them 55's and 58's going REAL FAST !!
THE 1:8 twist is somewhat abnormal for that chambering . . BUT . . consider it a plus for hunting and/or shooting the newer,great bullets >100gr.
My choice would be the 22" and would quickly spin the muzzle device off and install either a thread protector or linear comp. Love the side charge also.
Would call first to ensure that the upper is compatible with a DPMS lower.
Looking at these now. --- SAWMAN
PLUS - - - > I am already tooled up to reload 243Win. :D

Yep. Emailed them this morning to find out what lower they reccomend. The side charger still ejects right, crapola.Your right no need for a "flash hider" on a hunting rig. Stuck the strike industries comp on the .224 cause I was bored...lol

Heres the email

Good Afternoon,

Thank you for reaching out to us.

Our AR10s are designed after the 1st Gen DPMS. They will not work with a lower/upper of a different gen.

Please be advised that other companies lowers/uppers will work with our own, but there may be reliability issues due to tolerance differences.

Hope this helps,

cleaned my Ruger 22-45's, a task that's truly a pain... then mounted up my new Leupold Mark AR 1.5-4x SFP Firedot in an American Defense Mfg. QD 20mm forward offset mount. My Colt 6720 is the only thing I have with a magnified optic.

Marathon casting session and cast 13 1/2 pounds of 200 grain bullets for my M1889 Swiss . Think I will put up that mold for a while. Might be in the market for an 8mm mold if I win an auction on an 8x58R Swedish rolling block M67/89 military rifle.

I shot my 660 Remington in 350 Remington Magnum, for the first time in more than 30 years. I took 2 boxes of ammunition with me , but only needed 5 rounds to remind me why I don’t shoot it often . A 6 pound rifle in 350 magnum is brutal . It’s likely that I’ve shot it for the last time.

Well I guess boredom got me. I chopped my g17 grip down to a g19. Its not finished. Still have to dress and buff the edges. I like the longer slide with shorter grip for carry. I wish glock would have made the 19x this way rather than how they did. That a glock factory carbine would be awesome I think

Also. I got this gun used. Already had the grip texture and the finger grooves removed. So with the frame already not factory I decided to make it more versatile with magazines and carry ability
