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 ****, 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.
