I was wondering if anyone has heard of them and if this scope would work for what I want. I appreciate any help I could get.
welcome to the forum! is your DPMS a flat top receiver? if so you may need an A3 type scope mount to raise the scope so it clears the charging handle. not really familiar with that brand of scope, size wise should be about right for the range you are looking at for shooting. i looked at the scope and the mount on their website, should clear the charging handle fine. price is not bad if their scopes are decent. i use a Simmons 3-9x40 on my Bushmaster, but have carry handle mount as mine is an A2 type receiver.
