WHAT LOWER RECEIVERS ARE COMPATIBLE WITH THE GEN-12 UPPER?
The upper is guaranteed to work with the Genesis Arms lower receiver which is patterned after the DPMS gen1 308AR lower receiver. We cannot guarantee fitment on other manufacturer's lower receivers.
Currently, SR-25 cut lowers are not compatible. AR10 lowers have no "standard" (not MILSPEC) unlike the AR15 lower. While many lowers will mate well to the GEN-12 upper receiver, the magwell may not accept the GEN-12 magazines. For questions about specific lowers, email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Shotguns by NFA standards are outfitted with a stock. Our GEN-12 braced firearm is not a shotgun under the NFA but is defined as a "firearm" or other.
