    My New Awesome Toy

    Only sad part is I probably won't get her to the range until weekend after next.

    Anyways, DPMS 308 SASS. I'm in love.





    Range report just as soon as I can get to the range with it.

    It's official, I'm green with envy. One sharp looking rifle. Bought a DPMS upper for my Colt HBAR a couple years ago and I couldn't be happier with it -- amazingly accurate. Had one small issue with an add-on that I had bought from them and their customer service was excellent. Sent the upper in, they fixed the gas block and had in back in 8 days. I hope yours works out as well. Looks like a lot of fun time in your future.

    Sure, gotta go walk the dogs now, but I'll get you some pics this evening. I really dig the flip up design. Just gotta find a good glass for it.

    They look like the standard sights that come with the rifle.

    By the way, sweet toy. My brother in-law has an A10 that I thought I wanted for the longest time but my boys and I saw the SAAS in the gun shop the other day and oooo, ahhhh. Now you had to go and show me this picture...!!

    My trusty FAL will have to make do for longer but I do think I might want one of those (wishful thinking!)

    K, here's some close up of the sights. I really like the flip-up feature because I plan on scoping this thing for some longer range paper punching and maybe hunting (kinda heavy though).

    My only gripe would be that the rear ring is a little large for my taste. Fast for quick aquisition shots, but maybe not so great for precision shooting with the irons. Range will show though.

    Front Sight:

    Rear Sight:

    Not gonna use the image tags so I don't kill the dial-up people, but you can see from these how they work. Real easy to flip up, and put down. Stay out of the way of a lower mounted scope.

    Yeah, definitely going to scope her, but now I gotta find out what kind. It never ends!
