They were hot a few years ago, they had just had some decent write ups in the gun magazines. It is an enexpensive rifle that shoots .5" and under.

can't speak for your specific model, but DPMS in general has been very good to me. I can't be happier with my DPMS rifle (M4gery)

The first AR I owned was a Low pro classic. It's .223 chambered, not 5.56, and not Chrome-lined. Mine came with 2 cheap plastic 10 round mags. It also had a note with it not to shoot winchester white box that was not made int he u.s.a. (don't know what that meant). None of that bothered me until I found this website...

All in all, I'd say it was a great AR for the price. I put an ATN scope on it (didn't know it was not a good scope, although it never gave me problems, that's just what I heard), and a harris bipod. It looked pretty cool to me...

Thanks I'll look into it a little more and match it against my budget and other must haves and make a decision within a week or so. I really like the 308 ARs.

I just picked up a DPMS A3 Classic at the Phoenix gun show today. I can't wait to get to the range.

I did notice in the manual and in talking to the guy from Mad Dawg Distribution Co of Tucson (the dealer)
they both stressed DO NOT use the Wolf metal case with the lacquer finish. The new Wolf is apparently okay, though I don't know if Wolf is still steel cased? Can someone answer that?

Just in case I bought 500 rounds of American brass rounds, so as not to even take a chance with the steel cased stuff.
