Unless you're in N. Kansas City, MO, you'll be building yourself an AR10 if you use Armalite gear, or a Large-frame AR if you use other receivers. A GAP-10 is built by GA Precision and I doubt they would appreciate anyone else building a rifle with the same name. I don't know if they have trademarked the name, yet, but they have trademarked other names in their rifle line.
I am sure they wouldn't mind if I build one and call it a GAP-10, I am special like that.

Ok, not really as far as being special, but I do work at GA. If you get a rifle with a proof mark that looks like a mitten (or a mil replica ordered since I started), I built it. The proof mark was supposed to look like a boxing glove, but it came out looking more like a mitten.

Well I guess that puts you in the N. Kansas City, MO disclaimer.
I was wondering what this symbol was:

That is Adam's stamp. When I do get around to making a GAP-10 I probably will have him spin up the barrel as well. He basically is the GAP-10 section of GA. I can do it fine, but he will do if faster and probably better as he does them all and knows all the right speed/feed rates to avoid chatter in contouring, etc. Outside of the mil replicas (because the real ones don't have them) all the GA guns have a makers stamp on the barrel and in the barrel channel of the stock for bolt guns.

Well make sure he knows he spun a good one on this rifle. He is probably still cursing my existence for the 11/16-24 threads on the muzzle and collar on the barrel for the Ops Inc can.

I can't wait to show off my GAP-10 and upload pics of it on this thread. That is as soon as I find one for sale. Seems like everyone is holding onto their GAP-10 as I have not seen any posted for sale on this sight at all. Anyone got one for sale?

Thx

I actually remember your barrel (unless it was someone else with the same set up I guess). Man, he was cursing you up one side and down the other for weeks.

Ok, I kid. We actually like when there is something different most of the time. Though I am serious about remembering the barrel part, but that was from just talking about the set up as far as turning it.

I honestly am not just saying this because I work at GA, but with the wait time being as low as it is right now for GAP-10's and with the price they usually go for when sold second hand, it may just be a better idea to get a new one and exactly as you want it.

I am aware you need to take my answer with a grain of salt since I work there, but that really would be my advice rather I did or not. Of course it is possible to find a screaming deal on one in the chamber and twist rate you want, with the parts and colors you want, etc; but you may be waiting a long while for that.

Thanks Mitten. I was actually considering calling them on Friday. Can you tell me what the wait time is currently on a new gap 10? You can just pm it to me if you like.

Thx

From their Facebook page back in July, 2 months. What it is now, I don't know but it took mine 9 months .... worth every minute. The tune on the Geissele SSA-E is AMAZING and it is a hammer with 140SMKs, 140ELDMs, etc.

The lower and upper was made by Hogan. GAP manufactured the rifle.
man·u·fac·ture
ˌman(y)əˈfak(t)SHər/
verb
past tense: manufactured; past participle: manufactured
  1. 1.
    make (something) on a large scale using machinery.
nothing I said about Hogan manufacturering my gun was incorrect. GAP assembled the parts. They didn't manufacture anything.

I really want to get over to GAP and take a look . I need to give them a call....not very far from me in the grand scheme of things.
