So this past Monday I succumb to the get your AR hype. Since I and my lady are getting married in a couple months I needed to watch the cash flow so I ended up picking up a DPMS Panther lite 16" 5.56 cal with the A1 carry handle. From my research I decided to site the AR in at 50 yards as this seams to be a good option. Well I was shooting 3 shot groups right out of the box at 50 yards that at there worst were no bigger then 1" across and most 3 shot groups all three holes were touching. So for the bottom of the barrel AR with stock everything I think that's very good. The trigger is a little ruff which might smooth out with some use, if not I will do a little smoothing myself.
