ive been looking at all the different calibers the AR is available in

everything from 9mm/10mm/.45ACP to heavier rifle calibers like 6.5/6.8/7.62x39 etc (well heavier than .223 anyway lol)

i even found a 7.62x25 conversion

is there anyting youd like to see them chamber an AR in that they havnt yet?
specify if its the smaller AR15 or the larger AR10

Anything I would seriously consider buying is currently available.

It would be kinda fun to see an AR platform in .338 Lapua magnum or 7mm STW. I don't think either one would nearly fit into an AR10 though, it would have to be a substantially longer action. We could call it an AR-5, perhaps.

wow Z maybe your on to something i was thinking as i posted about the larger .338lapuas and such

maybe they can make a decicated AR for the 50BMG and such and just call it an AR-0 lol

No AR-15 manufacturer currently makes one thus chambered.

I stand corrected...

But what is the price on that thing? :eek:

I was hoping for a GI configuration from DPMS, RR, BM, Double Star...you know, affordable.

Guess I'll have to settle on an upper from Spirit Gun Mfg, but theirs comes sans bolt, carrier, rear sight, and only in a 16 inch barrel.

I just bought a 6.8 barrel from them and it is pretty good quality. If you want one really bad all you have to do is change out the barrel and you are good to go.
