You weren't issued one by our military. I think we'll stick with Jon's opinion over yours.

Sorry friend, but you're making a fool of yourself here. No U.S. Military Unit has ever been issued DPMS AR's. That's just the way it is and wanting it to be so doesn't change the facts.

There's a chance that some private security folks might have some, but that is also doubtful.

I did some research on the subject over at Google and found a recent AR15.com article on the same subject that you may find interesting. They all said the same thing regarding the use of DPMS AR's in the U.S. Military.

http://www.ar15.com/mobile/topic.html?b=3&f=118&t=567045

I don't know that there is anything wrong with DPMS AR's, but it just doesn't seem that they are being made for any U.S. Units in the field now or in the past.

I have the 5.56 and the .308.

Accurate, simple, built decent.

The one thing about the AR format. You can take any gun down to the receiver and make it whatever style or quality you want.

I've never been in the military, nor to I shoot rifles competitively. But, I can shoot them well.

As far as run and gun. Have any of you experienced warrior's (BTW, thank you for your service!) seen a receiver fail, melt down, do something catastrophic?

Just a questions. It seems to me if a receiver holds, anything else can be upgraded.

You have been mislead. In most cases the receivers have nothing to do w/ an ARs overall performance which includes reliability. Polymer and probably being the exception. As long as they are w/i spec.

It's the stuff inside that makes the difference. Would you prefer a Twinkie filled w/ the normal filler or a Twinkie filled w/ fecal matter? Why would you purchase a poop filled Twinkie, suck out the crap, then fill it w/ delicious cream? I would be worried I wouldn't be able to get all the crap out. Wouldn't it be easier, cheaper and put your mind at ease to just purchase a Twinkie w/ that delicious cream in it from the beginning?

I can not take the opinion of someone who would eat a Twinkie seriously.

It was in responce to the guy who recommended purchasing a DPMS and replacing its internals w/ quality parts. It makes as much sense as purchasing a **** filled Twinkie then replacing the **** w/ cream rather than purchasing a Twinkie w/ cream in it to begin w/.

MM13, you are probably correct but it would sure leave a nasty taste in your mouth. lol
