My rifle is a DPMS Sporticle. I've seen on several sites folks saying these are not very good rifles...maybe I lucked up and got a good one, but it seems very well put together. 2 times to the range and around 300 rounds and I am impressed. - fed it both .223 and .556 and not a single hiccup. Took me a few rounds to site in the red dot, then after I bought the back up sights I moved the red dot sight back a little and went back to lock in the back up sights and red dot.
I don't have a lot in this gun...$499.00 for the rifle. 3 extra magpul mags, a nice inexpensive gun bag, cheap red dot and aluminum back up sights. All in all I'm at about $675.00.
I'm sure this wont be my last AR....but I can definitely feel that I have caught the fever.
