    Default Input on building an AR-15

    Im in my planing stage to build an AR-15. It was suggested I start with a DPMS reciever. What are your thoughts on this brand?

    I think they are good.
    All the pin holes a true.
    Just watch what parts you build it with, some are better than others.

    AR15.Com - Your Firearm Resource. (AR-15, AR-10, M4 Carbine, M16, H&K, SIG, FNH, FAL, AK-47, 50 Cal, M1/M1A, Handgun, Pistol, Training, Hunting, and More!) You can probably find out everything you need to know right there. Although Stag uppers and lowers are very good. Especially if your left handed.

    All receivers are about he same. If it has a known name on it then you will have no issues. There are about 7 major places that MAKE lowers for many of the known names.

    DPMS makes good parts...They have some bad reviews.

    but why build one, there are so many good AR-15 manufacturers.

    unless you what to do it like a project...

    Mines been flawless, picked it up 3 years ago.

    Next will be something a little different; maybe a .308 AR-10
    If it doesn't fit, FORCE it! If it breaks then it needed to be replaced anyway.

    And a whole lot more than you might want to know. It will give you BRD.

    I would do a AR-10
    Folks ask why I carry two guns...Well if I did not I'd be off balance and walk in circles!

    DPMS is the Taurus of AR 15's IMHO ..... I'm certainly glad yours has not given you any problems.
