I heard they are good.
I highly recommend Stag Arms and their Plus Package.
I have two ARs, a RRA and a Stag.
Everybody talks about how good RRA are, and it's true, they are really good. But, I like my Stag more.
Either one would be a great rifle.
Look into Daniel Defense I have a ddm4v7 and wouldn't regret my decision one bit. I was looking into the dpms as well same with Colt and I went with the Daniel Defense. The skies the limit when you are dealing with ar's it is also addicting before I knew it I dropped $2200 on the rifle and optics, back up iron sights, accessories so be prepared to fall into the sickness they call Ar's buddy.
I looked long and hard at DPMS and liked what I saw. As it happens, my shooting buddy just got one and we took it to the range for its first outing this past Sunday. Tightly put together, well-finished, shot beautifully. I ended up with Windham Weaponry, from the company established a couple of years ago by Richard Dyke, the original founder of Bushmaster. After he sold Bushmaster to the Cerberus group some years back, they closed the plant in Windham, Maine, and when his non-competition period ended he got together a team from the original Bushmaster and started Windham Weaponry. I absolutely love this rifle.
With so many manufacturers and such a variety of aftermarket doo-dads, is there any authoritative primer on how to select an AR?
I am pulling together a battery of weapon systems for 'just in case' and I need to find a decent battle rifle to augment my PD shotguns and my food pot .22. Frankly, I dont have the foggiest idea of where to begin and what to look for.
I have a DPMS sweet 16 (16" barrel M-4 style in 5.56), and have run 3500 rounds though it so far. It is extremely reliable for me, as well as accurate. I shoot long range, and for practice I hunt prairie dogs. I frequently shoot at 400 to 500 yards and it is spot on.
I unfortunately cannot compare it for you with other brands since I don't own them, but I LOVE my DPMS.
I have a DPMS and it's a great gun. The only thing I didn't like was the factory trigger. Lots of pull and tons of creep. Once I replaced that, it's great. I like my Rock River more though. It shoots anything you put in it and really smooth gun. I would recommend Rock River first but if your already looking at the DPMS I say go with it. They are both really good rifles. Couple of the top makers for price. Hope I could help.
