I have read that AR10 bolt and barrel type have to match. Are AR10 upper and lowers interchangeable?

Thanks,
Jeff

The uppers are the same, the bolt and barrels both must be either Gen. 1 or Generation 2.

That is correct, there is AR-10 and DPMS. Whichever barrel you go with, you need to go with the same bolt. One will work with the other but one won't, I cant remember which is compatible.

Same goes for handguards. There's AR-10 and DPMS. They are different receiver heights. You CAN use either barrel/bolt combo with either receiver, that doesn't matter but you do have to match the handguard with the receiver.

As to lowers, in this platform, I would buy both from the same mfg, if possible. While they should be interchangeable, you might find they don't match up well if you use different brands.

Thanks for the info! I had forgot about the Gen1 and Gen2.
