How do I know what SXS-762 Profile (height) to choose?
There are two standard heights of .308 AR receivers on the market, Armalite/DPMS High, and DPMS low. The DPMS Low is not the same as the DPMS GII. To be sure you are choosing the correct Samson handguard for your AR10 style rifle, you can call the manufacturer of the receiver or measure from the center of the bore to the top of the receiver.
If it is approximately 1.32”, this is Armalite/DPMS high and you will need the SX-7.62H series. If it is roughly 1.25” it is DPMS low and you will need the SXS-7.62L series.
Measuring the height from the center of the bore to the top of the receiver: To Measure the distance from the center of the bore to the top of the receiver you will need a set of calipers. Measure the diameter of the threads and divide that number by 2. Then measure from the bottom of the threads to the top of the rail on the receiver. Use that result and subtract the divided number; which is the height from the center of the bore to the top of the receiver.
