    All I have is an A2 HBAR i’d love to ditch because of that weight.
    You can always build or buy one of Brownells complete retro ARs. They have a few to choose from.

    Don’t want to build, i’m looking to partially trade. Besides those Brownells rifles are said to have terrible quality furniture so I’d have to buy a vintage set anyway.

    You know the retro AR-10 they have can’t use original magazines? You have to buy new ones that look similar to them or use modern ones.

    There's nothing wrong with the Brownell's furniture, except that it's made from modern materials. (Well, and the round handguards don't have heat shields in them, but at least you can take them off without pulling your gas block off.)

    And why would you want to use original magazines? Are they particularly well-priced? Do they function better? Brownell's now has a magazine based on the Dutch AR-10 magazines, altered to function in SR-25-pattern rifles.

    Besides, real AR-10 waffle magazines are extremely expensive when you can find them for sale.
