But, but, but, my DPMS malfunctions all the time if I don't keep it white glove clean and run brass ammunition.

You should check out the review Vuurwapen did on the Ruger SR556, the one he shot had a loose buffer castle nut and signs of major carrier tilt

I don't need a reason to like the SR556 any less. I fingered one Thursday, no thank you, hand to wash my hands asap.

Has yet to Fail.

Just to clarify. You bought a $700.00 DPMS rifle, and you "ran it hard" through a 4 DAY RIFLE COURSE MULTIPLE TIMES and it has yet to fail you. I'm just wondering how this is possible? If you were to have asked on this forum before you bought this DPMS, you would have had to read through post after post of how they are a "low end" manufacturer, and how they are all built with nothing but low quality, sub standard parts.

If you would have told these wizards in advance what "your application was", your DPMS would have been the last rifle they would have told you to buy because of all the quality it lacked. Yet it appears yours ran flawlessly after being "run hard", through a 4 day rifle course.

I have several Bushmasters as well as a DPMS. I'm still waiting for any of mine to break as well. This might be something the OP takes into consideration with all of the "advise" he's going to be getting from all of the "experts" in regards as to which rifles are "quality" and what their representation of "sub standard" actually means. Now I'll sit back and watch all of the repercussions that result from yet another "low end" user obtaining perfect results from a rifle that has no business being "run hard".....
