I all honesty, you pretty much have a generic rifle as well as optics. The only appealing parts of this package are the bi-pod
I'm also guessing that if the upper and
lower are DPMS, then the lower parts, bolt carrier group, pretty much every internal are also DPMS Don't get me wrong!
It'll probably shoot decently for a few years (or longer if you care for it), depending on how many miles (and highway vs. city) are already on it.
If you keep it:
This gun could work its way into your arsenal, given the right set of circumstances. It sounds like you don't have much under your belt inthe AQR world, but I can tell you. . . even though this maker is my least favorite and I've got countless good reasons why, It'll do its job. (wow, that what tough
) Replace or better yet, eliminate the scope. Just about anything is better than what you got. Redfield is one, if not the best bang for the $$$ right now. They are made under Leupold in Oregon. If you get rid the scope, The Bushnell Trophy has a red dot that competes directly with and ACOG for a fraction of the cost. I'm very impressed with mine and we'll see how it does when it gets switched to another rifle tomorrow.
If you ditch it:
You should make enough from it if you part out ALL
the accessories and try to get $500 for the functioning rifle, to look into an AR with some quality and craftsmanship behind it. It might not hurt to leave the scope on the gun for sale. It catches the eye of some (mostly amateur) buyers.
If you decide to get rid of the rifle, consult one of us more thoroughly, the folks around here are very helpful and most of us with the "Supporting Member" tag know enough or can point you in the right direction. A man by the name of Dillinger is is one of the experienced and willing to help firearms type folk I've came across in my shooting days.
