    308 Mag Release

    I installed a 308 lower parts kit on an AERO M5 lower yesterday (love that screw in bolt hold open pin) and noticed the mag release button doesn't stick out very far. I've ordered an extended button for the AERO lower, but is this something that all 308 lowers have in common, or just the AERO lowers? This is the first 308 I've ever done. I know I had to match DPMS specs, but I thought a 308 lower kit would work on all.

    Purely a guess on my part. Is the AR10 lower wider than a AR15? Perhaps the kit had a shorter AR15 version in it by mistake? Beyond that I got nothing! It looks like you have the "screw" part backed out a long ways. And of course ask the supplier.

    My Sig Patrolman release sticks out the same as the M&P 15 so it may be unique to your kit.

    The mistake I made was assuming a 308 lower parts kit would work in all. Lesson learned. Fortunately Primary Arms has an extended mag release (postage is more than the part). Next time use the same brand lower kit as the lower.
