My latest 308 DPMS build


Recommended Posts

Hey all - New guy to the forum, but been around the 'lil black rifle for awhile and have owned/built several.  I usually look for good prices on "project" rifles (uppers and lowers, or low-end base models by most any manufacturer) and then build them myself for a specific purpose.  My latest is this DPMS Oracle build.  I wanted it for a CQB to medium range heavy hitter, and wanted to manage weight but not spend a fortune doing it.  I put a couple hundred rounds through it before switching anything out just to see what was good-to-go, and what could be better.  Barrel was shooting as well as I can, so will keep it until I shoot it out.  BCG is fine.  Mag release was a bit sticky, so swapped it out with a spare.  Trigger was typical mil-spec sloppy but worked fine.  Free floating the barrel was, of course, a no brainer.  I haven't weighed it yet, but I'd guess it's around 8 pounds without glass or ammo.  Pretty typical for this type of build.
