I am new to ar15s and I was wandering if any one can tell me any thing about this gun. It is only about 600 dollars in FAC and it seems like a good deal. Are panthers any good in general? It says that it has a chromemoly lite contour barrel; Does this mean it is chrome lined? It also says that it is chambered for 5.56x45 caliber; thats the same as .223 right? Finally, it only weighs 5.72 Lbs; it this gun cheesy? Sorry about all the questions but I don't know anything about ARs. Input is greatly appreciated!

Chrome moly is not chrome lined.

Wouldn't buy a DPMS rifle.

For a bit more money you can get something like a Bushmaster that is a much better weapon.

Keep in mind the Panther Lite has a cast lower IIRC. It also used A1 sights, For about a 100 bucks more, you can order a Bushmaster Superlight from AIM surplus and have a far superior rifle - 4150 chrome-lined barrel, forged lower, A2 sights (or A3), yada yada yada.

Thanks alot for the info! A friend of mine is accually in the market for an AR and I told him I'd do some research. He is looking for m4 style with the short front hand guard and colapsable style stock. Are there any quality rifles out there for under $750? Once again input will be appriciated.

Spend a little more and get a Colt MT6400, you wont be dissapointed

I wouldn't reccommend DPMS to anybody
