This was my first experience and what can I say other than Buds is as advertised. I placed my order for a DPMS Hunter GII on Monday 11/25 and had it in my hands by Friday 11/29 and in perfect condition. I would definitely recommend anyone looking for a quality firearm look at Buds first.

I have not yet made it through the shoot 1 round, clean, shoot 1 round, clean process yet, but so far I and very happy with my purchase. I put a Nikon Monarch 5 scope on it and it was almost dead on without any adjustments.

I bought this because I've had a DPMS LR308 for several years. It is a good rifle, but it is a much larger platform than a standard AR. With a longer bull barrel it is also quite heavy. Once I got to do a side by side comparison with the new GII and saw how much more compact it is, I decided to make the switch. I sold my LR308 and bought the GII. No regrets. It's very accurate and functioning has been perfect. I much prefer the GII platform and I'm very glad I made the switch. I went with the GII Hunter model as I wanted a barrel length that would take advantage of the cartridge's ballistics. I'm very satisfied and have nor reservations in recommending the GII. A very nice rifle.

At first the rifle would only cycle federal fusion 180 grain. I put an adjustable gas block on it and drilled the gas port hole just a hair larger. Now the rifle shoots and cycles everything great. Will have to shoot more to test accuracy better.

Really nice solid rifle! It may be a while before I get an opportunity to put it through it's paces, but I have no reason to believe it won't shoot as good as it looks. Great job to BGS on another purchase!

Bud's offered the best price that I could find by over $100. When received, it was in perfect shape and the first time at the range it performed exactly as billed. The scope does need to be mounted on an off-setting set of rings due to the short rail, and while I am a left handed shooter I bought the right-handed model for future resale value. I was warned I might have an issue with ejected shell casings hitting my cheek and that did happen at first, but I adjusted my position and the issue went away.

This rifle is just simply bad to the bone! Very light compared to most AR10's out there. A very tight group shooting platform.... I have taken over 15 deer (Whitetail and Axis) over the last year. All were direct hits exactly where my Leupold scope was targeting. Great rifle for sure!
I did thread the barrel for suppressor use.... and this lead to changes in some of a few of the components. Due to increase back pressure I had to install an adjustable gas block, a 10 ounce Heavy Buffer, chrome silicon buffer spring and ammo change to Winchester Deer Season XP 150 grain.... my 180 grain Ted Nugent ammo was too hot.I am using the ACC-762-SDN-6 for my suppressor. So if you want to shoot suppressed you will need to thread the barrel and possibly need to make changes like I did for cycling issues.
I also upgraded the trigger to the CMC 3.5 pound flat trigger.... which definitely helps with accuracy. The stock trigger was good but I am not a fan of two stage triggers.
The rifle is a great shooter.... very accurate, lighter than most other AR10 options. So after fairly decent use out on the ranch I have zero complaints on performance or reliability of this rifle.
FYI - This is kind of a hybrid AR10.... it allows you shoot a .308 out of a smaller design platform compared to a normal AR10 (size and weight reduction).... but you can use a lot of AR15 parts on this vs. AR10 parts which helps with aftermarket parts selection. I thought that was pretty cool.

This is a great gun! The trigger is above average for an ar style weapon. Extremely accurate. I took it out of the box, cleaned the barrel, mounted a vortex 3-12x56 hog hunter scope using an Aero Precision extended ultralight mount. Federal GMMK 168g. Was right at and maybe a little under 1 MOA. I'm very pleased.
