I agree its not junk but the barrel of the oracle is 4140 aswell which seems to be fine in a barrel but don't trust my bcg to be 4140

Hopefully only the carrier was 4140. You'd hope even DPMS would use better steel for the bolt, at least 8620 if not Carpenter 158.

Yeah exactly what I was thinking, never had any trouble with the DPMS I own eats whatever I feed it and is quite accurate down to 1 to 2 MOA at 100 yds with Troy fixed irons only.(Di-Optic rear)

But depends on the ammo I'm useing and how I'm shooting that day
