Recent customer service issues with Model 1 Sales aside, how would you folks compare a DPMS upper receiver to a Model 1 Sales upper receiver ?

I've got a Bushmaster and a RRA, and I've got an Eagle Lower that I'm looking at building into another AR - I'm not looking at spending a whole lot on the upper, and I've got a deal in the works through the equipment exchange for a DPMS dissipator upper - I was just wondering if any of you could highlight the differences (pros and cons) between M1S and DPMS.

Thanks.

I've had nothing but GOOD luck with Model 1 products.

I've had nothing but BAD luck with DPMS products.

YMMV.

I have both,
No big problems with either. I feel that the DPMS is the superior product of the two. Given the choice, I would choose DPMS.

Not sure about DPMS but I'm sure happy with my M1S upper

I have several DPMS uppers and am very happy with each. All have functioned perfectly, several for many 1000s of rounds. Fit and finish is better than the Bushys that I have since sold.

Great Combination! I have built about ten rifles using this combo. The uppers and lowers match fit and finish perfectly.

Thanks for the replies folks.

It sounds like either one will do just fine.

I have a Model "1" Sales 11.5" 7.62x39 upper & a DPMS KittyKat 7.5" upper. Both are 100% runners. No problems, and I would buy from both again.
