    Just curious.
    My dad's coworker is DPMS's owner's brother. I might be able to get some inside info (deals... but doubt it) if I can get the in from my dad.

    Are they just too expensive? Quality gone down the shitter? Bad service? What's the hate all aboot?
    I know they deal a LOT with the military, so maybe some of the civilian problems stem from having too much effort placed on the military right now.

    Speak up... I need your input. Thanks :wavey:

    No problems with mine, and despite the gay "chart" on barfcom, my Panther Lite has m4 feedramps, chrome lined barrel, staked gas key, and fires 5.56 just fine. Plus I paid $125 less than MSRP regular price from a local shop

    Their receiver is actually one of the better ones out there. Most receivers are paper thing on the side opposite the ejection port. My AR smith does side charging mods to the dpms lo pro. Says it is the only one with enough wall thickness.

    What exactly would constitute "insider info" about an AR-15?

    the only DPMS hate is from Hoss.....but I challenged him on it and he told me to die in a fire

    so I think he had a ND with a dpms weapon or something

    I think that most of it is from that gay commercial they ran that was posted to YouTube with immense hilarity...

    Yeah their commercials are a joke so I could see how people would get the wrong impression about them.

    I will talk to my dad, but it's highly unlikely I'll be able to get us a group buy.
    But I will try my best. He's very good friends with his buddy at work, and that buddy is very close to his brother... so all this is possible, just very unlikely.

    I'll see what I can do.

    Ok, talked to my dad. Don't get your hopes up or anything, but he's going to talk to his buddy at work and see if he can talk to his brother.
    DPMS being rather large, especially with the military, I find it hard to believe they're going to care about 5-10 guys on an internet forum, but it's worth a shot.
    I'm also trying to see if I can get an inside tour of their facility and all that good stuff. But we'll see.

    You have to understand Minnesota humor. It's not usually funny or entertaining to anyone outside the Iron Range up north.

    Sounds like it's mostly unfounded.
