    OK, I know the buffer, bolt, bolt carrier, charging handles are different.

    1) Would an AR-15 receiver end plate work on an AR-10?

    2) How about an ambidextrous safety?

    3) Norgon ambdiextrous magazine release?

    4) Are barrel extensions compatible?

    5) How about ejection port covers?

    What other things should I be aware of?

    1) Yes

    2) Yes

    3) No

    4) No

    5) No

    Fire control parts, receiver extensions & stocks, grips, some hand guards and gas blocks/FSB are compatible. Everything else is platform specific, and no standardization of .308-AR platform means that you need to do your homework if building a frankengun.

    While we're at it, on the Armalite AR10, can you utilize AR15 handguards/barrel nuts?

    AFAIK, barrel nuts are not interchangeable.

    No on the barrel nut, and it depends on the hand guard. Reason being is that the gas tube sits higher on an AR-10 than an AR-15. I used an AR-15 drop-in quad rail on the AR-10 I had, and it fit, but had to be clearanced for the gas tube.
