This is was my 4th purchase from Buds. They have never failed tp please on sales and delivery. Great job from buds. I purchased this gun on the reputation and several reviews on this gun. I have now had this rifle for some time and run more than 300 rounds down range. I can\\\\\\\'t begin to express my disipointment. I have tried seveal different loads and bullet weight. I just cannot get a decient grouping. It\\\\\\\'s accuracy leaves a great deal to be desired. The GII recon also has quit the recoil for an AR. I have had to purchase after market buffer and other parts to manage the recoil better. If your considering purchasing an AR 10 look for a different gun.\\r\\n

I\'ve had my G2 Recon for some time now. Overall a great rifle that\'s very capable as long as you can pull the trigger. I do enjoy shooting mine and have not ran into any issues. Mine loves 168/178 grain Amax. Since reloading I can string rounds under 1inch groups at 100 yards now using Hornady ELD-X bullets. I did some mods worth sharing to include replacing that heavy quad rail that it ships with. I replaced it with a 15\" Midwest Industries G2 keymod rail and it made the rifle much lighter. Changed the entire bulky profile of the rifle. I also replaced the OEM muzzle brake with an ASR brake from Silencerco, and lastly I installed a Rock RIver Arms 2 stage Match trigger. The Rock River is a great upgrade from stock that won\'t break the wallet.

Great service from Buds as always. Enjoy everyone.

Received this item in a very timely fashion (3 days after purchase). Firearm was in excellent condition. Just took it out to the range and put 100 rounds through it with winchester whitebox 147 grain. Ran like a champ. Would definitely purchase again.

Before reading this, you need to know that my purpose for owning the gun was to have something fun to shoot, drop some hogs, and play Mr. Wannabe Tacti-cool Soldier once a year at the gun range. With that being said, the following is my review/opinion on the G2 Recon.

The fit and finish were on par with the price and the overall quality was excellent. I cannot opine on the accuracy at long distances due to using a 4 moa red dot sight, but at 50 yards freehand it was shooting 1 inch groups which is exceptional for the gun considering again that it was free hand. With a barrel rest or lead sled and a scope, I would assume this would shoot sub MOA at 100 yards. However, the rifle is picky about ammunition but not with regards to feeding or dispensing, only accuracy. The ammunition you chose will determine whether you get proper groups or 3-4 inch groups. Anything with 168 grn. seems to be a great match. I believe I remember reading somewhere that the rifle was designed and tested shooting 168 grn Sierra Match Kings which would explain a lot, but I could be mistaken. Notable rounds that worked well with my G2 Recon were the 168 grn. Hornady Black and the 168 grn. Federal Premium Sierra Match Kings. The Hornady Black was extremely consistent with the rifle and will probably be my "go to" round for plinking, hogging, or hooligan antics during the next "fun day" at the local range with watermelons, 2. liters, etc..

One thing that I was pleasantly surprised by was the trigger....it is outstanding for a factory trigger. Zero creep, a 4-5 lbs. clean break, and very consistent. I would venture to say there are very few bolt action rifle triggers from the big manufacturers that can compare to this MSR trigger as they come from the factory. Obviously the trigger is not gonna feel like a Timney or Geissele, but its nicer than many bolt action rifles as they come from the factory. Something else I didn't know was that the MBUS sights are ambidextrous+1 (my term) meaning there are three methods of engaging the popup sights which was a nice surprise for me. Also, the rear sight has two optional peeps, a large orifice and small orifice. Just flip down the peep on the backside to sight through the larger peep. I LOVE these sights. The MBUS sight pin was way off but I was able to line it up easy enough using the red dot after I got the red dot on target.

The gun feels light, shoots great, breaks clean, and is extremely consistent for my needs. If you have any doubts about these compared to an LR-308 or some other alleged equivalent, drop them. The G2 is fantastic as it is, and will erase any doubts as soon as you pick one up. Once you send a few down range you'll cuss yourself for not getting one sooner.

I bought the DPMS Recon G2 in May of 2014. A few days later I shot a 10 rd magazine of American Eagle .308 through it. It shot nicely and seemed well built. When I got home from the range I put the G2 in the safe and never fired it again until September of 2017. I went out a few days ago and loaded another 10 rd magazine of American Eagle .308, from the same lot of ammunition I had shot in 2014. On the 8th round, it malfunctioned. I looked into the ejection port and could see a pin and spring caught between the bolt carrier and inside wall of the upper reciever. Those parts fell out of the bolt face while shooting. Fortunate for me I was target shooting at the time amd not hunting or working in my profession with the rifle. According to DPMS there is a 3 year warranty - which Im about 6 months outside of. Ill update this review pending a positive outcome.

I fell in love with this rifle on first sight. The barrel has a great finish that is even throughout. The steel magazine that came with the rifle fits and functions flawlessly. I purchased several Pmags and I have not had an issue yet out of the 10, 20, or 25 round capacity mags. The rifle was accurate to the 200 yard range. I was keeping 7/8" groups with Aguila FMJBT 150 gr and 11/16" group with Hornady custom 150gr @ 200 yards. I am going to test some longer shots this weekend and will update my review. I researched for almost a year on the next rifle purchase I was going to make: bolt vs. semi, brand vs. brand. I read thousands of reviews on about 50 rifles and chose the DPMS GII Recon, and I could not be more pleased with the purchase. The only downside for me is I would like a longer handguard to protect the barrel finish. I am going to purchase an SLR Rifleworks Lite series 15" keymod handguard and this rifle will be all I can ask for out of one. I put a Nikon Prostaff 5 with MilDot reticle because it is was I am most familiar and proficient with, and a Harris swivel bipod and I am set for what use I intended the rifle for.

It arrived at my FFL in pristine condition, box within a box. Everything was tight, with no apparent blemishes. Next stop, the range. Lots of buzz on the net about magazines. Per DPMS, the magazine that came with the rifle was part # F414182, but I can\'t find that number online. Seems like a good fit, but what to buy for spares? There are many different part numbers out there for magazines, and prices are all over the map. As for Magpul, multiple sources say one version is good, one not. Hate to buy these one at a time, to see what works best. I\'ll try to post again after some range time.

The rifle was not nearly as accurate, or as reliable as I\'d hoped. I\'ve already sold mine. I used magpul 20 & 25 round mags, CProducts, DPMS, & IMI mags and not one of them would cycle 100% without failures to feed. Also, be advised the DPMS GII doesn\'t fully engage the bolt hold open without doing some light sanding mods to the follower on pmags. I tested accuracy with Federal Gold Medal Match both 168gr & 175gr ammo. It shot around 1\" groups at 100 yards, but once I stretched out to 200 yards the groups just blew up on me. I don\'t think they\'ve got all the bugs worked out on this model yet. I wish mine was as reliable or accurate as the youtube channels make it out to be.
