Don't believe everything you read or hear about DPMS. Most AR nuts are brand fans,and then the real rambo types think everything has to be Mil-spec.
I've built several AR15's over the years,and also have two Rock River's-a 223 and a 458 SOCOM,along with a DPMS LR-260H. None of which are Mil-spec,and they all have served me well for years of trouble free service.
I'm not much for the Oracle line of DPMS,nor any other "Entry" level firearm. Why buy a stripped down model when for a few hundred more,you can get a very good weapon that needs very little added to it.
I change the triggers in all of my AR style weapons,the factory triggers from almost everyone are pretty stiff,and gritty feeling.
