If one wanted to take an AR-15 and make it chambered for 308, is it as simple as getting a 308 upper and maybe a Magpul 308 mag?

Or are these two different animals as far as compatibility and fitment?

AR-15 conversion

Unless you have a lower the will accept a .308 mag that is not going to happen

is Colt and it is not in full production yet I think?

Have to ask Reaper about it....

Being Colt and also being a solid weapon system, it is going to be very $$$$$ me thinks...

No sir, he fell into that bullet... Never argue with a stupid person. They'll just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience!!

it's in production for mil contracts but not available to the civ market yet. It will be marketed as the SP901 and will most likely cost quite a bit when available.

grant- just give in and buy a .308

Oh, I will, eventually.

I really am interested in the Remington Rsass (a JP LRP-07). I don't think it's available,though.

It would sure be cool if the ACR had a 308 long barrel conversion.
