I had read that one review already I guess what I am asking does any one on this forum have one? Do you like it? Would you recommend it? Was it easy to install? I am not worried about how much it cost believe it or not my wife don't care how much I spend until I really start acting stupid I have a dpms lower already upper is on the way that way it will match but I want to trick it out I'm going to order a comp trigger also I want this one to be a tack driver and look good this is going to be my turkey shoot contest rifle

Honestly at that price point, I don't think you will run into too many people with them. I personally have no experience with them, sorry.

What kind of barrel did you get on your upper? What kind of shooting are you planning on doing with your build? What ranges do you plan to shoot?
What kind of ammo are you planning on using?

Just trying to get a better idea of what you need......

18 in barrel 1/8 twist have not decided on ammo yet whichever makes the tightest grouping mostly range like turkey shoot offs out to 500 meters going to put a comp trigger to but ain't decided what brand read bad reviews on the timmney drop in comp trigger

The 3g is a practical, dynamic shooting type competition setup. Precision shoots should be pretty easy with it. Doesn't already come with a modified trigger? Id just break in the barrel with some plinking ammo and then get some match grade ammo and find out which works best with your rifle. That's a nice gun iirc. Shoot your gun first. Figure out what works for you, and what doesn't before modifying anything. Doesn't make any sense buying DPMS's top of the line gun and modifying it before you even shoot it.

Btw you should start researching some glass. If your gonna spend some money, spend it on some good glass. Probably anywhere between 300 to 3000 if you get serious. That'll make more of a difference than some silly carbon fiber handguards.

I already had the dpms lower which came complete it had a two stage trigger in it but it don't feel very crisp maybe after I send some rounds down range it will loosen up but I have read some real good reviews on the geissele and the jewel both
