    Hello all,
    Is there any other brands or types of magazines that will fit the DPMS LR-308 rifles? Or any magazines that can be modified to work?

    None that I know of. Back in the bad old days of the AWB people tried modifying M14 mags for the similar AR10, results were not particularly good reliability wise.

    Shop around, the DPMS $40 asking price is often discounted. I got 6 for $150 at a gun show with a little negotiation.

    Many retailers are moving them for $30 each on ar15.com. Word from CProducts is that they're ramping up to make a sizable batch of them as well.

    Original AR-10 magazines will work (By original, I mean the military rifles built in the 1960s, not the recently produced ones from Illinois). They can sometimes be found at garage sales where kiddies are selling off their deceased father's stuff and don't know anything about what they are selling.

    Knight Armament Corp mags will work too, but they cost about $100 each.

    Thanks for the response.

    I was hoping for a cheap option. But Money talks and BS walks. So I know where I stand. The DPMS LR-308, i'm loving it. Right out of the box it was zeroed, didn't touch the sights. No cycling issues with 3 different loads. But only shot around 30 shells so far to break in the barrel.:):):):)
