    The guys at LAR won't say specifically who, but I know they OEM manufacturer for over 40 brands. Colt is one of them. But I would think that Colt probably has multiple shops producing their lowers for various reasons.

    Cool list.

    S&W do everything in house now. Small parts may be ordered in but my lower was made by S&W for sure.

    I just wish that there was more standardization or a mil spec for all the .308 receiver manufacturers.

    I agree. I read that one of the manufactures was going to use the fal mag ( they may have already) and another was looking at using the HK mags ( they may have done that also). This would help some. I quit looking at them a few years ago.

    When they come to a standardization then I will buy one. They way it is now if they go out of business your out of luck on some replacement parts.

    CMMG made a 308 AR lower that used (uses) G3 mags. I'd like one of those.

    It seems that there is some standardization taking place. Most 308 AR lowers are either flavored DPMS or AR10. Tactical Machining for example... their 308 AR lower is of the DPMS variety. The bolt catch pivot pin is retained slightly differently. Probably to avoid a copyright infringement or something.

    Rock River uses fal mags or at least they did when I bought mine.
