A couple items on the stock version has a lot to be desired. However, the value of this gun gets your foot in the door for the 7.62 AR world. Gives you 20" heavy barrel, good set up for iron sights, and a great value. I prefer iron sights so I wanted a A2 front sight post and I also was looking for something longer than a 16" barrel like the AP4. My only gripe is DPMS couldve turned down the barrel under the handguards to at least a heavy profile. The barrel must be 1" thick or so. But, on the upside that aids accuracy. You couldnt even build one for anywhere near this price. My biggest gripe was the stock. I like A2 and fixed stocks better actually than M4 collapsing stocks. But the quality of the stock was junk. Didint bother me because I knew I was changing the stock ahead of time. Got a ACE full length skeleton fixed stock. It looks awesome now. Either get this or a better quality A2 stock to replace the DPMS one. The DPMS one seems like its made out of styrofoam or something. But dont let that keep you from buying the rifle. The DPMS heavy duty carry handle sight assemble makes up for the stock. So does the machine work of the reciever. Everything looks milled rather than cast. The barrel is extremely beefy under the handguards too. I also replaced the A2 grip with Magpul MOE as well as the A2 Handguards with a Magpul MOE rifle length handguard. Many will tell you magpul handguards wont fit. But I got them on securely after a half hour wrestling with them. Changed the DPMS Panther with a FSC 30 compensator (SCAR Brake). Also changed the trigger to a ALG ACT single stage enhanced trigger platted with NiBoron.....much smoother and lighter than stock GI trigger without spending the extra $$$$ of a two stage trigger. Great value. And this gun is a great value.
Worth every penny.,

I received this rifle about sixth months ago, and I have put 2k rounds through it so far. I am extremely happy with the 100yd grouping. I am using a Vortex Diamondback 1.25-5x40mm for the optics and I love it. The craftsmanship was flawless. I have never had a FTE or FTF, and I have shot everything from american surplus, federal gold medal match, and russian steel cased ammo. This rifle shoots anything. Definitely worth every penny.

The groups at a 100 in a new rifle were great. I had a cheap Russian scope and the screws kept comming loose.Another lesson. The after market mags I got elsewhere failed to my horror. I like the Trigger pull. I put a rubber recoil pad on it for a longer pull and to reduce the schock. I trust this rifle.
