For the price you can get a PSA rifle.... Much better quality.

Thumbs up, because it's a gun deal though.

Would be good if it wasn't DPMS. No thanks. As ilivas mentioned, you have MUCH better options available here at the lower end of ARs. Save for just a little more, move up to the mid-tier, and get a Colt 6920. You'll be far better off in the long run.

I have some experience shooting owning and building rifles on this platform. I consider DPMS quality to be very good. The top three are Armalite, Bushmaster and Colt (A-B-C). DPMS is usually considered to be in the next tier.

I prefer Chrome Moly barrels over Chrome lined barrels. CM is more durable as the Chrome lining will wear more as it is thin.

I would easily pay someone to build an AR-15 for me.
I consider this a good deal on a new rifle of this type.
Thumbs Up!

DPMS are made local, but I bought a Rock River Arms as they are better, and I feel comparable to any of your listed top tier models.

PSA have been known for slowwwwwwwwww shipping. If you need fast service, don't expect it from PSA. I ordered some parts & ammo from them and it took 4 weeks for them to ship.

They're kind of hit and miss on shipping. I ordered a lower parts kit, and it took a couple weeks. I just ordered an upper from them and I had it in a few days. Take into account they are very popular, and they are a very small operation. I think they're just suffering from growing pains. They do make quality rifles though, and they're prices are great.

DPMS, and Bushmaster are pretty much some of the worst rifles out there. I actually own a dpms. It was my first rifle purchase, and I didn't know any better. I do regret it though. I now own much better rifles for the same money.Colts are good though.
