I tend to stay away from plastic receivers in AR's...for now anyway.

That price is WAY too steep for what you're getting, seems to me.

I have no opinion of the DPMS. Some like them, others don't.


Good luck.

Go poke yourself in the eye with a hot soldering iron, you'll get more out of it.

Anythinh over $675 with a plum crazy lower IS NOT worth it. Good lowers, but not for a price like $750

I will give u credit at least your asking before u bought it, rather than like most do, they buy and then ask and get upset when people tell them they didn't get a good deal

Yeah I figured I would ask the "experts". I don't have all that much experience with AR's and i didnt want to go ahead and buy one that i would regret. I'm wanting to buy one and set it up for a coyote rig.

Don't do it, you can get a new one for that price.

Not experts but a couple guys w/ some common sense and the ability to wade through the BS.
