The heater is a DPMS M4A3 16". I added a Knight's RAS, EOTech 552.A65, and my own vertical foregrip. (I'm still searching for the perfect BUIS) I've had it for about 2 weeks, and have about 3,000 rounds through it so far. I've shot all kinds of stuff through it- Factory Reload 55 grain (500 rounds), Lake City XM855PD (1,000 rounds), Winchester 45 grain Varmint, Remington UMC 55 grain, IMI 55 Grain (750 rounds), American Eagle 55 grain, and a few others. No Wolf, I just can't bring myself to it. Not yet, anyway.

I've had 1 dimpled primer on an AE round, but no other problems. Not one jam, misfire, failure to eject, etc. I cleaned it after 500, then 1,000 rounds, and haven't since. I clean it only with CLP, and have kept it lubed all the time.

For mags, I have 2 D&H that came with it, 2 Center Ind, 2 Parsons, and 4 Okay. All are 30 rounders, and all have performed flawlessly so far.

It fires great, and hasn't let me down yet. The Optic is perfect, and has kept it's zero after 2,000 rounds. These numbers aren't that great, but I've only had it for a couple weeks, so I'll report back after I get some more lead through it. Cool

As for the pack? It's a RAID, made by Eagle. Best pack I've owned yet, and I use it every day. Great range bag, and great for outdoorsy shit. I can't think of anything that hasn't already been said about this fantastic piece of kit.

I will "get with the program" when I need more storage for my RAID. I'm not the type of guy to use kit I don't need.

Regarding the WTF patch, thanks for the compliments. I made it out of a blank leather flightbadge, some letter stencils, and white paint. I thought it was quite clever myself. Razz

I got mine in Mid-May as well. Shit bro, I'm at about 4750 now and it doesn't skip a beat! It's dirty, I don't use the best ammo, and I shoot it until it's hotter than shit and it hasn't let me down.

Some people tried to tell me DPMS "wasn't necessarily the best", but after putting this many rounds through it and not having a failure I'm a believer.

I've shot Colt's that could barely get 100 through them without something going wrong. Mostly feeding problems, but I use the same type of mags, and in almost the same condition with this gat and it still shines.

DPMS may not be the best, but it's definitely good enough for me to buy another from them.

edit: In addition, it will cycle anything I've thrown in there so far. From 45 gr. JHP to 62 gr. M855, if it's .223 it will work.

That's a nice little weapon you got there and that WTF patch is awesome too, where'd you get it/have it made?
