Default Dpms lr 10

Ok, until I have a hormone imballance or something like that I have made my decision to be the LR 10 by DPMS as my next purchase and I would like to have some input as to: 1. does anyone have or has had one of these rifles, 2.Pros and cons and what accessories would you put on it and why.

I am looking at the flattop and the 16" barrel, M4 style stock....thanx..Paul

We have one for sale at the shop and it's a hell of a nice firearm, although, they won't let me test drive it because it's new, B'atches.

Sounds like you are going to have to buy it then. The only way out.

I've got a DPMS LR308B, picked it up as my first rifle and I love it. Spent the time and broke her in over 100rds and she shoots sweet. Now that I have access to a 500yd range I hope to get her out more often.

Good luck

I've got the DPMS LR-308 ... with the 24" stainless fluted barrel. I added a RRA 2-stage trigger, Ergo grip, Magpul PRS stock and Harris bi-pod.


Its not a Stoner SR25 ... but then it wasn't $4500 either! I've owned a an SR-25 and like an idiot I sold it to fund something else. The only problem with it is that it was boringly accurate and and I got to where I never took it to the range. I could pick dandylions at 200 yards with it ... the I haven't got the DPMS to do that but I'm still working up a load for it.

When I buy my next .308 it's going to be a FNAR. God knows I'm in love with that rifle.

Thats what I am talking about. That magpull seems to do the trick.
Whats your take on the quick disconnect scope mounts?

The downside to the Magpul PRS stock on the AR platform, especially one that is the length of the AR-10 is the cheek riser will get in the way of the charge handle ... but then you shouldn't need much elevation anyway

My QD mount is an ARMS mount I've had for years ... it helps to save room in the safe plus I use it on 2 different rifles. I've got the clicks counted so I know where I need to be on either rifle ... it serves me well but solid clamp on mounts are probably better.

skydriver:

It looks like you have an AR-15 PRS and not the AR-10 style.

The AR-10 style has the front of the cheek rest bobbed to accommodate the longer pull of the charge handle.

I want one of these or an Armalite NM upper.
I have both the DPMS and a AR-10 style Iron Ridge lowers and am looking for the right upper. Want a brake though.

Just got the lowers to fit and make some Vise Blocks and then the .308 bug hit me - big time.
