I have used/owned them and have built rifles for friend's with nothing but DPMS parts and have never had any problems. Do a search for DPMS and you will find numerous threads about them. Some love them and others hate them. I like their products.

I've had my A2 Classic for 3 years and 4500 rounds. It's been very good to me. I'm also using DPMS receiver parts on my current project.

Bought my first AR last month. It is a DPMS flat top carbine with a 16" chrome lined HBAR, Phantom FH, and collapsible stock. Except for the trigger feel, I love it.

Being fairly new to AR's, I have not been tainted by the "DPMS' suck" disease yet.

ETA: Oh, it also has a LMT rear sight I purchased from FlyingFiveO, who posted above. + 1 one the sight too.

Great, I have 8000rds on one of mine..........the only I replaced was the buffer and spring on the ejector.

No problems with DPMS. Some people don't like them or have had problems with them. I've never had any problems with mine. I recommend them for a direct gas rifle/carbine.

My first AR was a DPMS Panther 16. Still have it and still shoot it often. After about 5k rounds, I had to replace some small parts that had worn a bit, but the thing still rocks and rolls.

Out of a Classic Sixteen and two AP4's, not a single problem.
