I actually use it for three gun, the bipod is really just for range trips and pictures(it usually stays in the range bag till needed).

Three gun? Then why the bull barrel? Isn't it a little on the heavy side?

I'd think it would be on the excessively heavy side for 3gun. Man or not that bull barrel is an hindrance.

I regret to say it, but there has been quite a bit of things from DPMS that has been out of spec lately. I am certainly hoping that moving the plant to Ilion NY will correct some of the issues. But any company can have problems if they are not up on their Quality Control. I have seen three lower parts kits of late that had their rear tail housing of the trigger which was at a 10-15 degree angle off center to one side in the area where the Disconector Spring and Disconector are installed in the trigger? This definitely would have caused a problem and was very obvious upon looking at the trigger. I would not think so much if I had seen one. But I had three students in the past four to five months show me a kit with the exact same problem. So when I read this thread about the barrel. It seems to me that if they are giving a specific dimension on a new barrel .936 and it actually is 1.045 they best be doing a little Quality Control on parts in general.

Sorry to hijack the thread, but my experience with DPMS isn't exactly great. I bought a collapsable buttstock assembly from them, and when I screwed the tube in, I discovered the threads weren't CNC'd. In order to get it to hold the detente down, the tube had to be screwed in enough so that the collapsable stock was at about a 10 degree angle off center. I tried it on multiple lowers, and had the same result. I ended up taking it back to the dealer, and they traded me even for a Bushmaster kit, which had a timing lip on the tube to address that issue.
