Either one will do the trick......I have a DPMS 20" SS bull barrel and like it a lot, but, have shot Bushmasters and like them too.........my next upper will probably be a DPMS 24" SS bull barrel...........

Exactly what jem375 said. But don't expect to get any unbias opinions from this board as about 37% use Bushmaster and that's all they will recommend (everybody thinks their brand is the best). I'd get the DPMS just because I think the snake icon of the Bushmaster looks gay.

I have a DPMS 16' Bull and I like it a lot, I havent shot a Bushmaster but I do like the name "Bushmaster". The DPMS does the same thing and I've seen they come a little less expensive if you look around.

Personally, I like the RRA due to the 1:7 twist(they also make 1:12). I can shoot 50gr up to 77gr. Bushmaster only makes the 1:9 and not sure about DPMS. Also if your wanting this to be an "accuracy gun" go for the non-chrome lined.

I have a 24" SS DPMS, I like it a lot!! I have had ZERO problems and is more accurate then me.

keep em coming guys, youve got me leaning towards the dpms. its a 24" lo-pro(doesnt have a fwrd assist or dust cover) with bolt/carrier for $420 shipped.

I have the Lo Pro 16' Bull, the performance is not affected by not having the dust cover and the Foward Assist. You might like the Mil-spec look, but a 24' Stainless BBL isnt gonna look mil-spec no matter what's on the reciever. if anything it just has less parts to clean. My baby (Black Jesus) has a 1/9 twist which is a good compromise, you can use 55 grain for plinking up to 68 grain match ammo. I would post pics but I need a site to host my pics

I have a SS 24" Bull Bbl from JT its real accurate and functions fine. Not chrome lined but like said before if you want accuracy stay away from chrome lined.

RRA makes somre real nice stuff...so does Armalite, and DPMS, in addition to Bushmaster. You really can't go wrong with a name brand, IMHO...just get one you want/can afford, or think is the coolest. Then enjoy the hell out of it, and tell anyone here who doesn't like your choice to piss off hehehe.

Given a choice of DPMS or Bushmaster, I'd buy ArmaLite or Rock River Arms. [flame] [devil] [flame] ETA- For you DPMS who think that Bushy's logo is gay, why would you want a KITTY-CAT on your rifle? [:D]

Ive got a DMPS ... I like em .. I dont think you can go wrong unless you dont do your homework .. if one upper has the features you want .. get it ... I just really prefer DPMS. and DaPhotoGuy is right .. bushys logo is .. kina.... gay ... *grin*

You're right! The cat logo is kinda gay also. But they don't stamp a big ol' cat logo on their lowers (at least not on MY DPMS). In a fight, I'd take my chances against a snake over a panther any day.

well i finally made up my mind and bought a rra 24" varmint. got it for $350 shipped less bolt/carrier.

What if it was a Baby Panther, and a Reticulated Python? Or in this case a Bushmaster, the most venomous snake of the American Continent (north, mid, and south), and ranking as one of the worlds most lethal snakes[;D]

It's still a gay logo. And the only way a bushmaster can hurt you is if you don't see it first. A panther don't need to hide.
