New Review: August 2001

By Chris Choat

DPMS (Defense Procurement Manufacturing Services, Inc.) Long known for the extensive line of custom built AR-15s and accessories has just added three more products to their catalog. The first is a Tactical Bolt Catch for the AR-15/M-16 series of rifles. This new bolt catch has a larger bolt release pad that is much easier to activate. The second benefit is the lower extended pad, which is used to hold the bolt carrier back when the magazine is not installed. This feature is excellent for training when the magazine must be removed. The new Tactical Bolt Catch installs in minutes by simply removing the old bolt catch and replacing it with the new one. Retail price for the Tactical Bolt Catch is $14.95. The next item is their new metric FAL Receiver. This receiver is a type 2, metric pattern, with type 1 mag well cut. It is made from 4140 steel with a 28-34 Rc hardness and is black finished. Other features include carry handle cut, semi-auto ejector block installed and it is cut for metric magazines. These new Fal receivers retail for just $269.95. The last but certainly not least item is DPMS’ new Lo-Pro Classic rifle. This AR-15 style rifle is manufactured using new hi-tech ideas and materials not found in run of the mill rifles. This new rifle offers a true 16 inch target/bull barrel and a solid flap top upper receiver. Accuracy and a compact size all for a retail price of only $655.00!!!
