Ill say their DB9 is a huge POS. alot of peoples never ran right, including mine. Im not sure if they would be able to make a decent AR.

Lots of info in the rimfire and pistol caliber thread. Sounds like a good price is it a glock or colt mag?

The db 15 is a .223 caliber not a 9mm.

They are a fantastic un-heralded AR. We put one on the rental board at our range, and everyone who has shot it loves it. It certainly drove sales of them in our store!

I have a buddy that is a total AR snob and he shot one and a few months back and ran down to the LGS and ordered 3. He hasn't stopped talking about it.

Thats funny, my db9exo (3 pin frame) has ran 100% after the first 50 rounds. I run PMC brass at the range. Just like any new products, the internet magnifies the negative. The silent majority aren't on here complaining. Too bad yours didnt work out for you. Merr xmas bro.

Frankly it sounds like a bunch of low post count shills in this thread.

i would say there's a small minority that work reliably all the time. LGS stopped carrying them because of it. no biggie. it was a cheap gun and got most of my money back. Just saying with as much negative ive experienced and heard, i would be wary of any of their products.

4140 barrel 1-9 twist? No thanks

I don't care how much of a panic your in, I'd only buy something I want. A sub par barrel isn't it.
