AR-10 Lower using G3 Magazines. Anyone know about these things?

    My biggest complaint with the AR-10 has been magazine cost. At $40+ each the rifle system prices itself out of reality fairly quickly if someone wants to have a good stock of magazines available.

    I saw this advertised at CMMG however:

    Anyone know anything about this? What modifications are needed to the upper?

    Seems like the perfect solution, surplus G3 magazines are 3 bucks each.

    Is CMMG the only company making something like this?
    Anyone have availability dates etc?

    Thanks for any info.

    Yeah I sent them an email, I just wondered if this CMMG product was the only attempt at doing this or if there were others already on the market.

    When I hear back from them I'll post the info.

    The Bushmaster AR-10 uses FAL mags. I bought a bunch of them brand new for $8 a piece. I don't know why they discontinued the line, I love mine. I guess because the gun was more expensive than the Armalite AR-10. There were some rumers of feeding problems and guns blowing up, all I can say is mine has been perfect. I have a buddy that has one too and his has been great also.

    Here is one for sale, kind of high but I guess that is the way things are now...

    Bushmaster made an AR-10 that used FAL mags?

    Dear lord, now I want one. Too bad I find out after they stopped producing them.

    The Rock River Arms LAR-8 also uses FAL mags (metric & inch pattern).

    In regards to the CMMG G3 AR lower, last I heard they were still working out the bugs and it is still not available. The upper reciever has to be machined to accept the G3 mags.
