    Anyone ever had any hands on experience with one of these? It seems the price is right and I have been in the market for a rifle.

    I have a Double Star lower that I built up this past weekend, seems to be of good quality, dunno about the rifles though.

    I prefer a removable carry handle.


    Look at the S&W MP15 rifles. I have on and it's awsome! They're not too spendy, either... They can be had under $900 new.

    Doublestar makes good PARTS, but if you're looking for a good keeper in a complete, look for something other than that which you have posted. You will not like the lack of a removable carry handle later on when you're trying to mount optics. You won't like the wear and the difficulty cleaning if that is in fact a non-chrome-lined bore and chamber. You would do better with M4 cuts in the receiver and the barrel extension, if they're not there. You will have more ammunition options with a 5.56 chamber instead of .223. All of these things can be had for a price near that of the above rifle.

    or you could build a CMMG and actually get a quality rifle.

    :ugh:

    There is a lot of unwarranted hate and misinformation on DPMS. Their current product is good.

    WELL worth it. S&W is definitely a respected arms manufacturer, and all the reviews on the MP15 are solid. Owning one I can definitely say they're great. Chrome-lined barrel, 5.56mm chamber, removable muzzle break, 6-position stock, removable carry handle... It's a great AR!

    Originally, I was going to build my own, but the MP15 ended up being the same price and came with a warranty!

    I think I may look into the MP15. Could be my M&P 9mm's big bro :cool:
