AR-10 vs AR-15

I'm considering getting an Armalite AR-10, rebarreled in .243.

I understand that the AR-10 had an adjustable gas system, which is a refinement I can't find in DPMS manuals for their rifles.

I don't have an AR-10 manual.

Does anyone know if the AR-10 does in fact have an adjustable gas port?

(This isn't a major point in deciding to purchase, just curiosity.)

No adjustable gas port on an AR10.

i have a armilite flattop with green furniture in 308. i sometimes look at a 243 upper but the upper is as much as i got the whole gun for. i do like 243 and shoot one in a sav 99c.
....i guess it is a hard decision to make but the 308 doing just fine. i would just consider using the thicker jacketed bullets for deer/bear game. use the thinner jackets for smaller game. (ballistic tip bullets do expand very fast). bobn
