Can I mix and match AR-15 parts?
No, combining upper and lower receivers of different brands will make no difference in accuracy whatsoever.
Are AR-15 lower parts Universal?
The AR-15 lower parts kit is universal for all AR platforms and calibers. The AR9 ditches the original bolt and uses a custom ejector and mag catch. The LR-308 receiver uses the AR-15 kit, but with a larger buffer assembly. ... Here's how to install the lower parts kit in your new AR's receiver.
Are all BCGS compatible?
Even though the M16's carrier is physically different, it is 100% compatible with any standard AR-15 buffer, parts kit, trigger, and upper and lower receiver, including any standard 80% lower. ... Because the carrier is reinforced, the M16 BCG is also capable of handling greater heat and energy during rapid fire.
Do all AR-15 lowers fit all uppers?
Yes any standard lower can be attached to any standard upper. That's the beauty of the ar. Be careful. If you attach a short barreled upper made for an ar pistol to a standard rifle lower you have just made a short barreled rifle.
Can I put a pistol upper on my lower?
Yes - however: If you don't own a legal place to put that pistol upper (such as a pistol lower) then you will be in “constructive possession” of an illegal SBR. This will occur whether or not you purchase the two at the same time.
Do AR lowers matter?
as long as they are machined properly, it doesn't matter, but apparently not all of them are machined properly.

AR-15 BCGs and M16 BCGs are both compatible with the AR-15. Even though M16 BCGs are required for a fully automatic, they are not regulated by the ATF. ... M16 bolt carrier groups are the industry standard for AR-15 builds.
What uppers are compatible with a 5.56 lower?
Standard 5.56mm lowers can't accept larger . 308 uppers, and vice versa. But there are plenty of AR 15 Conversion Kits in all sorts of calibers that will work perfectly with standard 5.56 lowers, and the lineup seems to expand all the time.
Is a 10.5 AR pistol legal?
The short answer is yes. Each state may vary in its laws of keeping a concealed weapon in your car, but for the most part, you can carry an AR pistol. However, be cautioned, as anyone would, when carrying an AR pistol in public.
Are there any parts that are interchangeable between AR 10 and AR 15?
Handguards and rail systems: Because of the barrel nut size difference between the AR-10 and AR-15, the handguards and rail systems are not interchangeable.
