DPMS PANTHER Semi-Automatic 223 Remington/5.56 NATO 30+1 Cap
[RFA3L16]
$650.00
by Greg K Date Added: Tuesday 21 August, 2012
First of all, buds was great of course; my FFL transfer went a little less smoothly but that's an entirely different issue. Second, the rifle came just as promised, with two magazines, a sling, a DPMS Lite 16 A3, and some of the paperwork (owner's manual, warranty card, sticker, and what not but no plastic case, sorry DPMS still hasn't reinstated that). All that the rifle needs is some cleaning, a rear sight or electronic sight, and ammo and its ready for whatever you need it for. After going to the range I have seen no failure to feed(FTF) or failure to eject(FTE), only smooth action and possibly one of the best AR platforms on the market, for the money. Personally, i have had no problems with the Pardus stock or the trigger guard, which have both received negative reviews because of their sharp edges; although, some sandpaper or a file to remove the edges wouldn't hurt anything. Just as a side note, the magazines will come very tight so they will need some time to break in, which is normal for new factory magazines, but they do drop free with no issues. Now, the trigger is a bit stagey during pull, but when it breaks, it breaks clean. If you're looking for an AR that is any different, then i wish you the best of luck. All in all, this rifle will most likely out-shoot the shooter and is well worth the money. Again, as a side note, the three year warranty that is offered by DPMS will be voided by reloaded or foreign ammo so if you plan on shooting Tula for cheap (which still cycles fine), you will kiss the warranty goodbye. I would recommend Remington UMC .223, American Eagle .223, or Federal XM193 5.56 for accurate, semi-inexpensive ammo, which will not void the warranty.
