my wife has a dpms panther. she picked it out. i had to do some mods to get it within reasonable running condition. almost nothing was properly torqued or staked or loctited. i pretty much had to rip it apart so no two pieces were touching then put it back together correctly.

they function out of the box fine for very light range use. but if you plan on running them hard they need a lot of work.

my opinion your better off spending a bit more and getting a better assembled AR15 if you dont know the platform inside and out. they are good buys if you dont mind get your hands a little dirty and re-doing the build.

My DPMS rocks. I have had it for four years and have put hundreds of rounds through it. Proper staking is BS, in 600 rounds over the last four years my gas key or castle nut has never come off. My boys and I get **** faced and shoot the hell out of some beer cans. Hell ya! It goes bang every time I pull the trigger. Leave those other brands to the mall ninjas. Unless you're some "operator" you don't need all those extra specs. DPMS is just as good as all those other brands plus my local gun store guy said they were one of the best right along side Bushmaster and Olympic Arms. Now all I need is to get one of those slide fire stocks.

I'm sensing a bit of frustration and sarcasm in this post.

In that price range there are much better choices for a quality ar. Check out Palmetto State Armory, Spikes Tactical or for a little more money Bravo Company Manufacturing. Why settle for less quality when the better quality rifle is in the same price range?

WTF?? For a minute there I thought someone hacked your account. I think I counted at least 9 things in that post that I have heard you rant about on other threads. I don't know how you even brought yourself to post that. You must have been laughing your a$$ off while typing it, I know I was while reading it.
