So if you could get a brand new one for 700 you would take it?

You buying or selling? Personally, I wouldn't buy a 5.56 DPMS for $700.

Neither my friend krypt doesn't have internet now and was talking to me about them. He has a chance to sell his current AR and get a recon.

I have DPMS's in both 5.56 and 308--been nothing but fun, reliable and accurate for me. I know I'm the lone DPMS advocate on this forum and will always be a target as such.

Pretty good deal IMO, you're getting a stock set-up with free-float quad rail, magpul battle sights and heavy stainless barrel--other than needing perhaps a lighter trigger and glass --good to go.

Not only do they cut corners and cross their fingers the end user doesn't actually use the ARs they coble together they are dishonest and used car salesman slimy. And their stuff is way overpriced.
