DPMS makes a .338 lower. You'll have to have your local FFL order it for you.

The AR30 is a bolt action rifle.It has a a relatively conventional bolt receiver with a vee-bottom configuration that fits an aluminum stock with a matching vee-feature.
It uses a Remington type trigger,a Shilen I believe. The guard-grip fits the stock and screws on.It is not a lower receiver. The muzzle brake is critical. imho,buy an AR-30
