NRA 2014: DPMS’ New .308 G2 Compact Hunter & .308 Bushmaster 18″ DMR

    Not content with the current G2 .308 offerings this year, DPMS has released the Compact Hunter. Using a 16″ barrel and collapsible stock, the Compact Hunter loses some weight and height to create a svelte smaller package. Sadly, losing the weight kept the price the same. MSRP is $1,699.

    DPMS is releasing the Compact Hunter rifle in three additional calibers: .243, .260, and .338 Federal.

    Instead of shrinking rifles, DPMS’ sister company Bushmaster opted to grow one. Tucked away in the Bushmaster booth was a new .308 variant. The DMR is an 18″ heavy-barrel variant including the MagPul PRS stock, Troy fore-end, and AAC flash hider. Pricing was not available, but I would expect in the same range as its smaller cousin at $1,599.00
