Q: 1. Is the 308 L.P.R. 16" Mid-Length Piston Upper w/ A.P.M-Lok Handguard compatible with the DPMS 308 Lower System?
2. Does the 'included' Buffer Tube include the appropriate Spring, etc.?
A: .308 Piston Upper Guaranteed to Fit Aero Precision M5 .308 Lower but are designed to fit .308 DPMS Patterned Lowers.
Due to Variances between Manufacturers, we can't guarantee a perfect fit with other manufacturers lowers. This comes with only the buffer tube, you would need to purchase the spring and buffer separately.

Q: Your .308 L.P.R. Piston Upper
Do You Offer 20in. Or 18in. Barrel?
Is This A Aero Precision Upper Receiver? Or Just Aero Handguard?
Is It A DPMS L.R.308 Gen 1 Style Upper?
Thanks And God Bless.
Our uppers are built off Aero Precision M5 Upper Receivers,
Designed to fit .308 DPMS Patterned Lowers, we do recommend Aero Precision M5 Lower Receivers. We can do 18" or 20" but they have to meet specifications to fit the gas block so if you have a barrel in mind we would need to review it for compatibility or we can get in some Ballistic Advantage barrel.
Q: use the DPMS Gen 1 or G 2?
A: This is a large frame .308 ...aka Gen1
