Re: AR 10 Trigger
The DPMS lr-308 is designed to be compatible with mil-spec AR-15 triggers. That allows many choices of aftermarket triggers. The factory trigger shipped with LR-308's is a standard mil-spec ar-15 trigger and not a very smooth one. I've put Jewell AR-15 triggers in most of my LR-( ) series rifles. . They and have adjustable first and second stage pull weight, adjustable sear engagement, and adjustable overtravel. They do not improve lock time. Geissele match triggers aren't quite as adjustable but they have significantly faster lock time. Those are the only triggers I have personal experience with in the LR-() , but most AR-15 triggers should fit.
I don't have experience with other AR-10 clones. A DPMS LR-308 is not an AR-10. I believe AR-10 is a trademark of Armalite. There are few parts in a DPMS LR-308 which are interchangeable with an AR-10. DPMS certainly offers the widest range of chamberings. I have DPMS LR-( )s in 243 Win, 260 Rem, 6.5 Creedmoor, 308 Win, 300 SAUM, and 338 Federal.
