New Service rifle!!
« on: November 02, 2009, 04:02:37 pm »
I just took delivery of my DPMS DCM Service rifle Saturday!  Shoots great with plain jane ammo, but I can't wait to see what it does with match stuff!  All I need now is a pinned rear sight with hood, and some weight for the stock, and I'm ready for some matches!


And one with the bayonet attached! (I couldn't resist...)

    Well wear!

    But at first I thought you were announcing that the army had selected a replacement for the M16.  I thought that Hell had frozen over.   :hide

    Are you going to do service rifle competition or just want something authentic-ish.
    UtahIt doesn't cost me to be nice, but nothing gets you nothing and everything's got a little price.

    I am currently active in Service Rifle Competition out here in the Pacific Northwest as a part of the local Navy Shooting Team.  Up until now I have been using one of Uncle Sam's M14's, but since: 1- I am transferring out to Kings Bay, GA, and 2- Out there I'm uncertain of the status of a local Navy team, so I decided to jump into the dark side (so to speak) and pick up an AR.  Got a great deal as a Navy shooter, and nobody offers deals on M14's.

    It's the stock DPMS DCM trigger.  Single stage, but with a real crisp break, so as long as it's within spec, I'll try it for a while before I go back to a 2 stage.
