Detailed Specs:

Upper & Lower Receivers

  • F&D Receivers are manufactured to the most specific set of tolerances in the defense industry; F&D utilizes tolerance stack-up engineering software and advanced inspection systems. F&D maintains pride in stating that it unequivocally manufactures the finest  auto-loading rifle components in the world.

Material

  • F&D’s custom-supplied, hand-forged 7075-T652 is the highest strength aluminum alloy available; up to 20% increased tensile strength from non-forged 7075-T6.  Receivers are match pinned for a perfect fit, not too tight or too loose.

Coating

  • Hardcoat Anodized IAW: MIL-A-8625, Type III Class 2

Operation

  • Flawlessly feeds from Magpul P20 magazines
  • 20 MOA tilt on top rail adds scope range
  • Side charging handle, non-reciprocating

Barrel

  • 308 Winchester Match chambered, 5R cut rifled by Bartlien Barrels
  • 1:10 twist; 5/8″-24 threads
  • 18″ length: effective range up to 800 yards
  • 22″ length: effective range up to 1000 yards
  • Sub-MOA accuracy
  • 416 Stainless, more uniform grain and density than mass-produced hammer-forged 4140 & 4150 alloy steels
  • Heat treated, lapped, and polished bore

Assembly

  • F&D’s rail system eliminates the barrel nut, allowing simplified and consistent barrel removal and reinstallation, while providing an extremely rigid connection to the upper receiver. F&D’s exclusive bolt-on interface maintains much higher rigidity than barrel-nut designs, and consolidates the absolute lowest and most compact rail-height available compared to any piston or direct impengement rifle system. This proprietary interface exerts 8200lbs of axial force against the upper receiver, compared to 6700lbs with standard barrel nuts utilized on most other AR-10 style rifles. Radial-clamping “quick-change” barrel systems exert little to no axial force against the upper receiver and reduces accuracy consistency. Axial barrel retaining force is one of the most significant structural contributors to accuracy and consistency on AR platform rifles.

Components

  • Geissele Trigger models: SSAe, Match, DMR, & Service
  • Ambidextrous safety selector
  • Magpul UBR stock on 18″
  • Magpul PRS stock on 22″

DPMS Catalog<br /> 2016

When we founded DPMS Panther Arms three decades ago, our primary mission was to provide precision M-16, M-14 and M203 parts to the U.S. Army. And deliver we did, helping convert their standard-issue rifles into high-performance machines. Since then, our legacy of fearless innovation and limitless customization has continued to grow. Today, we’re the second-largest manufacturer of AR rifles, and proud recipients of five prestigious NRA Golden Bullseye Awards—more than any other MSR brand.

But we’re not stopping there.Above all others, DPMS stands for performance, accuracy and reliability—the result of three decades of never, ever being satisfied with “good enough.” That same spirit of aggressive advancement lead us to create the GII, the bold new standard of MSR, and the forerunner of next-generation AR design.

We’ve come a long way since 1986, and have transformed the industry with every stride forward.
The good news is: We’re just getting started.

The DPMS GII is the collective culmination of decades of experience in the shop, on the range, or in the field, chasing everything from wild game and titles to our nation’s enemies. The GII is all about taking a great product with a great history, and applying the best R&D methods to improve it. Making it simply the most advanced, most versatile and reliable AR platform you can buy. Some other manufacturers are content with imitating, and might have stopped with a new forged receiver. But for us, that was just the beginning. We didn’t just
reconfigure another AR. We didn’t just slap together a few aftermarket components or grow an existing rifle to a larger cartridge. We have fundamentally redefined the way the AR works.

A Three Percenter Rifle:  During the American Revolution, the active forces in the field against the King’s tyranny never amounted to more than 3% of the colonists. Three percenters today, for the most part, identify with this 3% because they were true patriots fighting for the freedoms the nation we love and honor was founded on. Three percenters intend to maintain their God-given natural rights to liberty and property. History itself, for good or ill, is made by determined minorities. Never underestimate the power of a small group of committed citizens to change the world. Indeed, it has never been done otherwise.
