DMPS AR-15 Classic 20-inch barrel

Hello.

I just got back from the range firing this 5.56 mm ar-15. I was shooting at a 14-inch plate from 100 yards and hitting it nearly every round using the iron sights. This is the 20-inch Panther Classic DMPS. It has a non-removable carry handle and is plain barebones and naked AR-15, but fun as Hell regardless. Doesn't have the chromed line barrel, but it works without a hiccup.

Anyone else have one of these things? Won't win you any AR-15 beauty pageants, but I love mine. I also have a SW MP15x with the bells and whistles and enjoy shooting the DMPS just as much.

I have exact same rifle. I used it to shot at 300 yard silouettes at military rifle shooting contest and did quite well. o I was using just the iron sights and 55 gr bullets. The silhouette above is from 300 yds prone, but I put a cheap scope on it just to see what the rifle was cable of. Very accurate. I've put 500 rounds through mine so far. Had one jam on first mag I ever put though it, been perfect since. Really nice gun.

sent my dpms 16 lite back to the shop 2 months ago. it was shooting 14" to the right and a foot high. called them a couple of weeks ago and they told me it was raining and they haven't had a chance to shoot it. so much for QC. I'll never buy another dpms.

I wish Colt currently made a non-ban type 20" A2 with the proper size pins. I have been considering an Armalite A2 20" but last time I priced it theyre high priced for what you're getting.

At what distances did it shoot that inaccurate? Did you adjust your sights ?

From what I understand the pins that connect the upper to the lower are bigger on a Colt so you can't put a different manufactures upper on your colt Lower.

There are adaptors that are supposed to work to swap uppers. From what I understand Colt made the pins larger because they drilled the holes off center, either way I don't like the idea of non-spec pins.
