    What's the consensus on DPMS AR's? I'm thinking about getting one and would be interested in anyone's personal experiences with the brand. Thanks! :D:cool::D

    Cause I know where there is a DPMS for a good price. Bushmaster would be fine if I could pick it up for $800. This is an A2 framed DPMS, I think Panther Lite? I'm not sure, but it cycles smoothly just working the bolt.

    An acquaintance of mine works for DPMS/Panther Arms, he does quality control inspection and test firing. They have decent products, from what I understand. If not, I can blame him! LOL! If I were in the market for one and found a good price, I wouldn't hesitate to try that brand.

    I have one of their SS barrels and lower kits. The barrel is really nicely done and I've heard they have some of the tightest head spacing out there. It matched up great with my DSA Upper and CMT bolt.

    Send a PM to Vladimir. I think I remember his AR being a DPMS. (I could, of course, be remembering that wrong).

    I think JLA has one too. From what I know, its one of his best shooters.

    I have owned a few M-4s and carry one at work and haven't had a problem with any of them including a DPMS that I owned.

    I had no issues with my dpms until it was in a vehicle accident. It was in a soft case but there were other items with the rifle and I believe the barrel might have gotten bent. I can not get the sights right anymore including the iron sights. Adjust them at 100yds but at 150 they are way off. This was not the case prior to the accident. The rifle still cycles fine though.

    I have the LR308-L and love it and have no complaints. It is light fast and extremely accurate. I also have Bushmasters and love them. The Colt that I had was not a bit better in my mind than either one of the other two, just more expensive. JMHO

    They are mid-range in the spectrum of AR manufacturers. It may not have all the top end bells and whistles but it will serve reliably for you and should run without malfunction
