    In a 20" Bull Barrel I have had a few over the years. The first was a DPMS 20" Bull Barrel
    Upper Receiver Assembly with a 20" Stainless Fluted Bull Barrel. This upper receiver shot
    honest 1/2" groups ...

    Actually it is going to depend on the Upper you want to start with. Is this to be a 16" Barrel?
    If so there really isn't enough difference between the 6.5 Grendel and the 6.8 SPC worth
    talking about o...

    My son in law recently picked up a DPMS Oracle 5.56 with the stainless barrel. We installed a
    Yankee Hill Machine Mid Length Free Float Tube. It came with a full length top rail and a 3"
    rail that cou...

    You're very welcome. It has been a couple years since I worked on an AP4 so am not sure if they
    have changed since then or not. Larry

    The two AP4's I have worked on (one a LR308 AP4 and one a 5.56 AP4) both had the front sight
    base gas blocks held on with tapered pins. All of the rest of the DPMS AR's I have worked on
    have had a rai...

    Actually on my buddies AP4 we used a DPMS Carbine Length Aluminum Free Float Tube. I knocked
    out the two tapered pins, removed the front sight base gas block, swapped out the handguards
    for the new Fr...

    I recently (last June) purchased a DPMS Oracle in 5.56. I had a Bushmaster 16" M4 ORC which I
    sold when the prices were high. I have had a few AR's over the years and this Oracle was not my
    first DPMS...

    I don't have a Ruger SR-22, but rather I built my own version since I had a 1/22 to start with.
    I picked up the Nordic Components AR-22 Receiver Chassis Kit, a Stoner Buffertube with 6
    Postion Collaps...

    A buddy of mine has a DPMS LR-308B with the 18" Bull Barrel. That would not be my first choice
    for a Hunting Rifle as it is just as heavy as my .223 DPMS Panther Bull 20 AR-15. At any rate
    we have sho...

    While I do not have an Olympic Arms AR I do have a friend that has a couple. Both of his are K8
    Targetmatch AR's with the 20" Bull Barrels in .223. Both of his have run flawlessly and are
    quite accura...
