First off, I'm an AR-Newbie, but I definitely have the black gun sickness and really want one. I have a friend in Colorado who offered to sell me this DPMS (lower atleast) for $650. I've never seen an upper quite like this one...
Does anyone have any info they can share from looking at the pics? I fired the gun and it seems to be in decent working order. If all is well, is it worth $650??
Thanks in advance! hinking.gif
Its the top rifle... not the bushy on bottom
It comes with optics also
$650 sounds Ok
I think it was called the toober or tuber and made by dpms. 650 = not bad but not great either.
Ahhh I found it, it is the DPMS Tuber series.
Thanks for the info. I think I'm going to offer him $600 for it. I plan on removing the tuber cover and putting some type of rail system on the front end with flip up sights. Hopefully this won't be too difficult for me.
Don't waste your money on that. There are better AR's made for close to what your going to spend compared to that DPMS and that upper is more toy than it is an actually a good basic AR upper setup.
That fake silencer/handguard setup serves no purpose but look and you'll have no frontsight without putting more into. That's more than likely his stupid purchase that he's trying to pawn off on you.
I recommend you take that money and get yourself a good complete lower of which there are nice deals all the time in the E&E or just buy actual good shtf AR setup from someone selling theirs here in the E&E too.
If you want to buy new than there are lots of good deals on lowers and uppers to be had, but don't waste the money on rifles right now that are more toys than tools compared to others when you're just starting out in the AR game. You'll be much better off starting with a nice mid length or M4 16 inch barreled AR flat top upper with a good railed gas block to be able to refine later what you want in sights and optics and if you want to put a little more into it you'll get more out of it. That way for you there is less to mess with and less to mess up till you know more about the rifles.
A Bushmaster sale from AimSurplus,
You just find a local FFL to have it transfer to like buying a complete lower. You won't pay tax and you just pay the transfer fee through your FFL.
For separate complete uppers you have them delivered straight to your door as there considered nothing but another part and you don't need to transfer them. The lower is the registered part.
