So perhaps this discussion has happened before and I just couldn't find it. Ive been shooting for as long as I can remember and was never very interested in the AR platform. I'm more of a one shot one kill type of a shootist. But with all the liberal hatred over "assault rifles" I think it's time that I build one. I have also really like the idea of a Scout rifle ever since Jeff Cooper came up with the idea. And I think it will be a great project for my son and I to do together. My plan is to get an AR-10 80% lower of the DPMS style. Then use one of my Remington 700 and rebarrel it to 308. I could then parkerize both actions and give them matching furniture making sure to give the Remington a stock that accepts detachable mags. Has anyone done a project such as this? Are there any problems I should be looking for?
