Great gun at a great price. Shoots straight as an arrow right out of the box with the MBUS flip-up rear sight I put on it. Only came with one mag and no sling, but that\'s not a deal breaker for me, just an FYI. Go ahead and pick one up, can\'t go wrong for the price. As for Bud\'s...hey, they do it right. Can\'t get any better.

Awesome AR! Have put over a 1000 rounds through this rifle with no issues at all! Love it! I have and would recommend this rifle to anyone looking for a great entry level AR.

Great gun, went through 500 rounds of Wolf WPA .223 first time out (voids DPMS warranty - but that doesnt bug me, ill fix it myself, its an AR afterall). No failures of any kind. Handles PMC green tip 5.56 like a champ. A good AR should eat anything you feed it, and this gun does just that. Factory mag runs good, bought some gen 3 PMAGS - they work great and drop free. Little to no daylight between the upper and lower receivers - impressed my DPMS manufacturing tolerances. In my opinion, this is the best optics ready AR at this price range.

My first purchase with BUDS and everything went as described/outlined on the site. Very satisfied with this DPMS A3-L16; my first AR platform. Performed well beyond expectation out of the box. I oiled it well and put about 70 rounds through it the first time out with no mis-feeds or jams, thats including the 30 rounds I fired with the factory mag that came with the rifle. Very pleased and I look forward to working with BUDS on my next purchase. MS
