Anybody have any experience with DPMS barrels?

I am looking to buy one for my new project.

I have one - it's part of my DPMS Panther - works pretty well too, the little gold colored thing goes in one end and the little grey like colored thing comes out the other end with great force.

I have a 1 - 9 twist, but haven't shot anything other than .22 out of mine (with a Ceiner kit).

I won't get out to shoot .223 out of it until spring.

Good Luck with your project, I waited entirely too long in life to get my hands on an evil black rifle.

Have had 2.....1 was trash, the chamber was messed up big time, the other is OK

Personally I'd look at something else ;)

I have two,
My DPMS 20 inch bull barrel is very, very accurate, and my 16 incher with open sights shoots better than I can see.

I have a SS 16" Bull barrel that is fluted, crowned at the muzzle and was cryogenicallyfrozen. This little bastard shoots awesome with a Super Sniper 10x on top. It shoots sub 1" easy all day long.

I've got one; can't speak on accuracy though. I haven't shot it yet.

If your looking to run a bull barrel I'd definitely recommend a fluted or lightened barrel. Mine isn't and it is one heavy mother, it's OK though since it will be supported with a bi pod most of the time anyways.

Me and a buddy are building similar rigs and we are getting the 24" bull, fluted, threaded, and a JP comp on it. I am also gonna get a FF tube and Harris bipod for it.

It's gonna be sweet I hope.

For the price he gets with his C&R it's a no brainer.

Add my Delton upper and BCG and I am putting together a pretty sweet rig for slightly over $600.

Considering the cheapest stock 24" RRA upper I can get is almost that price without all the additions it is a pretty good deal I think.

IIRC I paid about $413 for my lo-pro DPMS upper from midwayusa. It's got a FF tube, & railed gas block.

I slapped a Simmons WTC 6.5-20X scope, a Harris Bi-pod on it and called it done. So far my only real complaint on it is that it is chambered for .223 VS 5.56; and fit was really tight on my Stag lower.

U can get a complete LMT upper for $430... 4150 steel.
But not a 24" fluted bull barrel. Closest you can get to that with LMT would be the 18" MRP at the princely sum of $1609.00

I'm not knocking LMT, my next lower will probably come from them.
