DPMS Gen 1 LR308 Upper Receiver

I have been using the DPMS LR308 uppers and lowers in competition and target shooting for more than five years. They are beautifully made and fit the billet lowers perfectly. I have never had any problems with them in .308 Win or 6.5 CM and have built many rifles with barrels as along as 24". I have some of the original uppers which were extruded from 6066-T6 and also some of the newer ones extruded from 7029-T6. I can detect no differences. I like the thick walls because they make the upper more rigid. Unfortunately, the uppers and other parts are becoming hard to find. DPMS still makes the complete rifle in the Oracle model. This is a low mount receiver so be sure you order the correct handguard. I use the SLR Rifleworks low mount and they are superb.
