    Is this a good price?

    I found a DPMS Panther Arms AR-15 16 Sportical for $665. Its a flat top rifle which I like BC I want to put an EOTech sight on it. This will only be used as a "fun" gun. Tell me what ya'll think. Let me know if you want any more info.

    Thanks for any help.

    In my opinion, that's a good price for any respectable AR-15 new. You didn't say new or used, but depending---it may be a real good price for used as well.

    Sound like a pretty good deal depending on the exacty model, number of rounds thru it, any extras added such as rails and floating HB, and general condition of the weapon. All things being equal I would say yes.

    Sounds like a reasonable price . Looks like you would have to add iron sights (if you wanted em).

    No need to worry or apologize. Seriously. I'd say you've got a bargain in the making. If you can close the deal this week, and wrap your hands around it come Wednesday, and take it to the range next weekend, all would appear to be good. Being brand new, be sure to get all paperwork and associated warranties as well as contact info for the manufacturer.

    Sounds like a reasonable price as you can buy an Olympic arms for the same
    money. If it was me I would check and see if you could fire both 223 and 556
    ammo out of of the ar.Some of the lower priced ones that aren't made to military specifications you can't.Just a small tid bit.

    +1. That is a good price as long as it is definitely NITB. Congrats and welcome to the addiction.

    CDNNinvestments has some decent priced accessories,they have a flipup BUIS for 29.99 and an A2 detachable BUIS for the same price,but S&H is 14.99 for 1 or 1000 items so if you go their you mightwant to order magazines and other accessories to break up the cost of shipping or if you got friends looking for stuff they got, just order it together and split the S&H charge
