What kind of tools do you have? A chamber gauge to check for proper chamber specs and pull out the BCG and look at the castle nut for proper staking. We've had a report on this site of a barrel not being straight. Everything else like trigger pins walking and LPKs imploding or going full auto are all "during use" type issues. Proper torque on barrel nuts and castle nuts are another thing they don't always get right or catch before the firearm leaves the facility.
Why would you want to purchase a new rifle just to have to replace parts? I would rather purchase a firearm from a company that sent it out the door GTG.
Morals, check your morals when purchasing from a company like DPMS. And don't forget your integrity.
I know it sounds a little harsh but in todays market there's no need to support a shady business.
