Letter from other post.
AR-15.comers and Fellow shooters,
Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to all. Make sure we all ask for more guns and ammo for Christmas presents.
Thank you to all who have supported DPMS. 2006 is our 20th anniversary in the business and we could not have done it or made it without the support from friends and customers like you.
Regarding US government contracts DPMS typically does not bid on larger US Military contracts due to the overwhelming red tape, low price and other requirements. By the way DPMS did not bid on the DEA contract that was awarded to Rock River Arms. We have however supplied our rifles to the following Police departments and US Government agencies:
United States Border Patrol
United States Marshall Service
United States Customs
United States Counter Terrorism
United States Secret Service
Minnesota State Patrol
Hoover Dam Police
The list goes on. The complete list will be on our website under Law Enforcement.
We currently have DPMS rifles in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan. We also have security contractor’s teams with Hundreds of DPMS rifles in Iraq.
The Jordanian Army Special Forces have over 500 DPMS AP4’s that are being used to assist and defend Jordan.
DPMS Also supplies thousands of rifles to Law Enforcement departments all over America.
Our market is the American shooter who desires an AR with options. All DPMS fire control parts are made per Mil-spec material and heat treat specifications. We use 4140 steel on our barrels because it’s the 21st century. Regarding Chrome lined barrels DPMS has manufactured thousands of chromed lined barrels for our customers and our competitors. We offer chromed lined barrels as an option.
All the best to gun owners of America and God bless our troops;
