Wow, I cant believe that on my very first post I innocently managed to cause a sh*t storm...all I can say is I'm sorry. I am truely in awe...
But once again, thanks for all the advice. I feel very confident in DPMS now and plan on getting a some good optics for it. I am not sure what kind yet. I am thinking that I might go with some kind of holographic with a magnafier, but I am not sure yet. Anyway, thanks again and I am glad to be a part of this community. I can see that you are all very committed to the site and the platform. Its good to know that so many members have a lot of experience and good advice...of course barring you know who...

No worries, it wasn't you. Enjoy yourself here.

There are several better choices.

In fact Rob_S, the man who created the infamous chart, states in another thread that is stickied on M4Carbine.net that you don't need the latest, greatest brand to create a STHF, war faring carbine.

While he stresses that it would be preferable to buy one of the top of the line models for such a purpose, all you really need to do is swap out a few key parts to make your rifle run with the best of them. And if your preferred route is just to run it as a target rifle, then DPMS is fine for the job (if not more than fine). It is funny how Waterman wanted everybody to re-read the context of his posts, but failed to actually see into the full context of the messages given out by the individual who created 'The Chart' in the first place. As Waterman himself said, "ignorance is bliss!" (At least for some of our mods and the magic ban hammer. )

Therefore, to the OP and TC, enjoy your DPMS. Regardless of what some schmucks out there will say, you still got yourself a fine rifle to enjoy the wonders of shooting.
Quoted for truth!

My opinion... Not my favorite, but I suppose you could do worse. I know there are some good ones out there and it would be easy to upgrade.

I have no experience with DPMS or it products so will not comment directly on them. DPMS is now owned by a venture capital firm, Cerberus Capital, which also now owns Remington, Marlin and some other well-known firearms-related brands. Cerberus is "rolling up" a variety of brands to create a large entity which it intends to take public through a stock offering somewhere down the road. If the way they conduct business at Remington is an omen of how they will conduct business at the other brands, I will avoid anything Cerberus has a hand in. Cerberus' goal is to fatten the bottom line to make its firearms foray as attractive as possible to investors (a goal I would wholeheartedly support if there were any indication they also were committed to producing quality products and standing behind them). Product quality, customer service and satisfaction and similar considerations seem to be regarded as unnecessary expenses. Cerberus is the same firm that delivered the coup de grace to Chrysler. If the experience many of us are having with Remington is an indication, they seem determined to work the same "magic" in the firearms universe. I, for one, choose to buy no current production anything -- whether guns, ammunition or accessories -- that has a Cerberus connection.

Thanks, I'll be watching for their stock when they go public. I love Capitalism.
