Scratching my head on this one. I don't have an AR10 mag to compare it to, but I think to get M14 magazines to fit in, the latch plate needs to come off. The reference to Bushmaster's .308 is inaccurate, though, as they used FN/ FAL magazines. RRA's LR-308 was the same.

There are two types of "ar-10" magazines.

Theres the DPMS pattern , and the Armalite pattern.

The magpul pmag 20LR are the DPMS pattern.

I believe DPMS pattern rifles are becoming the industry standard.

Thanks from Highlander419

Nevertheless, the AR 308's that use a M-14 magazine body have the rear lug removed..............So does this gun just use the castrated Mag bodies of M-14 mags or do they seat an actual M-14 mag with the rear lug.
