Solid rifle, well made. Good fit and finish, good staking. Couldn't build one for what I paid. Crappy stock trigger is only low point but easily fixed in a half hour and .50 cents, cut and bent the springs for less trigger pull pressure, put a longer grip bolt in to eliminate most of the creep and lite polish compound on the sear surface. Getting nice groupings at 100 yards with a sub $100 Bushnell 40mm 3X9 Scope!

I finally got a chance to fire my rifle and this being my first AR I was very pleased with how it performed. It didn't take long to sight in.The DPMS ORACLE is a good buy for the money.

I've had this AR for a long time now, i have shot hundreds of rounds if not thousands through it now. i have a detailed review at my youtube channel at youtube.com/mrcollegeprepper. i have used lots of steel and brass cased ammo of different grains. haven't had one FTF, FTE or any other of malfunction. i got it when they were selling it for $555 so i got a sweet deal.

Simply a great quality base rifle that performs as advertised. DPMS continues to deliver quality in this inexpensive AR.

this rifle is the best for its price. shoots cheap steel case ammo like a champ. no recoil at all. very smooth operation.the a3 flat top is perfect for mounting optics.people were choosing this rifle over smith and wessons.this is the best rifle i have ever bought.

The rifle is well built, nice fit & finish, and super accurate! Surplus Ammo & Arms offers this rifle for a great price, they return calls & emails promptly, but it can take 2-3 WEEKS for delivery to your local FFL.

Great rifle with price point that's easy on the pocketbook. Slap on the optic of your choice and you have a nice entry level black gun.
I've shot brass or steel cased ammo without a hitch.

This is a great rifle for the price; the upper and lower fit nicely and all parts appear to be high quality for the relatively low price. I was debating whether to build one or buy one, but for this price it's a no-brainer, especailly with the case and two mags.
My only minor complaint is that it took about a week and a half (10 total days - not business days) for the rifle to ship; however, it was well worth the wait and the SA&A guys made the FFL transfer very easy.

This rifle has a solid feel to it. Upper and lower match up tight and all parts seem made well. The pardus stock is tight with no slack but has an odd curve to it which is the only reason it only got 4 stars.
Only fired federal 55gr thru it but 300 rounds/zero problems. great price unless you are going to build one and hope it all matches up.

I bought this for the value..
a 16" FACTORY NEW Rifle for under $600..
I have prior owned a DPMS LR-308 so I figured for the money I'd grab this.. I wasn't even in the market.. I was just bouncing around the web..
This has the 5.56 chamber and M4 feedramps.. i have ran PMC XTAC 5.56 ammo in 55gr FMJ and 62gr GreenTip with 0 issues.. I have also ran Federal 223/55gr and PMC Bronze 223 55gr with 0 issues.. I am sitting on about 850+ rounds thru my rifle in just 5 range trips..
this rifle does not like Wolf MC 223 or the SilverBear either.. stick with BRASS ammo and you'll be GTG..
