First Look: DPMS GII .308

The DPMS GII .308 Win. rifle combines the dimensions and components of the AR-15 and AR-10 into a new hybrid system.

A truly revolutionary weapon system, the GII is essentially an AR-10 that's compatible with most AR-15 parts. In fact, all of the parts rear of the magwell are true to AR-15 spec, and can be swapped out with aftermarket M4-style accessories. The rifle also uses a proprietary monolithic bolt carrier group with the same diameter as that of AR-15s.

DPMS has also reduced the dimensions of the forged 7075 aluminum upper and lower receivers, while lengthening the ejection port for improved reliability. To further reduce weight, the barrel profile was also reduced from that of standard .308 Win. barrels.

Available in six different variations to fit several different objectives, the DMPS GII comes to market from $1,499 to $2,379, depending on the configuration.
