Cheapest way would be to build it yourself, I'd suggest checking out Mega Arms for upper/lower receivers, and their suggestions on parts, unless someone has heard something negative that I have not.

Mega Arms makes awesome stuff. In a complete gun I would look at DPMS. But if you want to build one I would definitely go with Mega Arms.

Rock River arms has a great Ar10, if you get the basic A2 flat top should be under a grand and they use both metric and standard FAL mags...when i went to go build one I was told that armalite and dpms mags were not interchangeable don't know if this is true or not but that's why I went Rock River plus I got a whole bunch of surplus mags dirt cheap

Just remember, as hinted at in the post above, there is no single standard .308/7.62 AR, like there is for .223/5.56 rifles. There are several incompatible, competing platforms. The AR10 you mentioned is only a product of Armalite. It's incompatible with the RRA and DPMS .308 models.

The majority of 7.62 ARs use the KAC/DPMS pattern, and those that take the Armalite pattern are all built on Armalite receivers (Aero, Noveske).

REPR, OBR/Predatar, MA-TEN, PWS MK2, SR25, Colt 901, Sig 517, CMMG, Bushy, and MWS all use KAC/DPMS pattern.


See this link for a compatibility chart

http://gunwiki.net/Gunwiki/Ref308ARs

The HK 417, SCAR 17s, and the rest of the legacy battle rifles (G3, FAL, M14, etc...) use proprietary format.

I did a DPMS in 308 a little while back that has been excellent.

Very accurate and reliable, no problems with it.

I have swapped out a bunch of stuff on it though. You can get them set up pretty well though.

Runs well with pmags and metal mags.

It has been great for hunting.

It's the only DPMS I have, so I can't speak for their overall quality, but mine in 308 is great.

I really want a ar15 style rifle with a 20" barrel and I want it in 7.62-51 or 7.62-39. I saw that cheaper then dirt has good prices but everything is out of stock.
