I would guess it would depend on what his current AR is. I'm sure he doesn't want to step down in quality. If he has a quality rifle now, I would tell him to keep what he has.

It's like a cheap bike from Walmart. The bean counters figure out how far the average bicycle is ridden in a year or so, then design a bike that will go that far before the bushings (not bearings) wear out. I've heard the average adult bike is ridden about 75 miles so they aim for that quality. If someone does break it, well then replace it.

DPMS cuts corners too, and they often get away with it. Whether the figure is 1K or 5K or 10K, who knows but they aren't a Colt obviously.

LOL doesn't even have a computer and phone doesn't work so no I'm not. That's why I asked ya'll. I don't have anything DPMS so I don't really know anything but horror stories.

Which DPMS? They have models ranging from $600 and up.

Let's look at the $1k mark. A person can get a BCM for that. $700 - $800 you're into PSA territory. $600 S&W. All much better than a DPMS.

I'm really not here to argue. I just want him to realize all angles before jumping in. Consider it my public service announcement.
