I never had any real interest in AR type rifles until recent news lead me to believe things are going to get very real soon. I looked at a M&P15 but was almost 2k!!!, a Bushmaster that was 1600.00 and thats all thats available locally other than this one. Any ways just bought a DPMS A-15 from a brand new gun shop. I looked at many reviews and 90% leaned toward they were good rifles. The store owner is a military vet. and said they were decent rifles. I ordered a quad rail system and fixed sights for it and planning on adding a Barska sniper scope, fore grip with bi pod and tactical sling and thats about it. Any comments about this rifle welcome!
