DPMS Gen II Photos

DPMS_GII-AP4_Right

I recently wrote an article on the new DPMS Gen II .308. The photos were rather small with less detail than I would have liked. I was able to drop by the DPMS booth and obtain some better photos with plenty of detail. Enjoy

The featured image above is the standard carbine version

In addition several readers asked if a regular AR15 5.56 forward rail system would fit on this .308. The answer is an emphatic yes from the folks I spoke with today at the DPMS SHOT booth.

      Yes there is. It’s a bit further down the road but it will sell for a bit less

    Compatibility with regular AR rail systems and a company who can release reasonably priced weapons… I believe this line will be a winner. Had anyone discussed MSRP with the fine folks at DPMS?

      They really aren’t 100% sure but I got the idea it would be in the $1200 range

    SASS and Bull Barrel look awesome rest are just kiddy carbine copies.

    **CONFLICTING INFO ALERT** I asked if AR15 rails would fit on DPMS’ vendor forum on ARFCOM and their response was that free float tubes are standard AR15 size, *but they use a different barrel nut*. That means third party rails won’t work unless they make a DPMS GII specific barrel nut for it. Here’s the thread on ARFCOM: http://www.ar15.com/forums/t_2_30/244744_GII___A_few_questions.html

    I wonder if the uppers and lowers are backwards compatible.
