    DPMS

    Good morning. Hoping y'all can clear this up for me. I purchased a DPMS Panther AR 15. First AR so I went cheap. I can't find the exact model, model number, specs, anything really about it. It came with an owners manual for a Remington R-15 VTR. It looks like the rifle, except mine has a black upper and lower, the Remington has camo. I spent hours yesterday looking online but couldn't find one like it.
    Mine says model A15 on the lower. I haven't removed the hand guard yet to see the barrel markings, but probably will today.
    Can anyone point me to any info about this rifle? Reveiws, spec sheet, sites that sell it?
    Thanks

    First upgrade should be your skills until you’re comfortable with it as is. I’d start looking into trigger and barrel.

    Probably the same as the DPMS Panther Oracle rifle. Here is link for the owner's manual:

    I did find that. Very different look although components may be the same. Mine has no front sight and a different stock. I'll see if I can post a pic from my phone.

    The rifle you have is pretty generic in terms of an owner’s manual. The AR 15 is one of the easiest rifles to take down, disassemble, clean, maintain, etc. if it came with standard drop in two piece handguards it may prove a tad difficult for a new owner to remove and reinstall those, but otherwise they’re easy for first time owners to deal with. You could prolly YouTube everything you need to know about the basics. Pull the takedown pin, pull the BCG and charging handle and go from there. Just a couple of minor things to remember when taking one down that are easily learned, like pulling the bolt forward in the carrier before reinserting, where to position the charging handle when reinstalling the BCG, As well as a few other tips like inserting a mag with the bolt open, etc. If you know a friend who is familiar with the AR, plan a range trip and see what you can pick up from them.
    Doesn’t play well with TROLLS...

    Just curious on why the suggestion for a barrel? Unless the OP intends to start shooting competitively whats the advantage of a new barrel? Any newer production rifle should have a serviceable barrel. I've had $400 ar's and $1500 plus ar's and all have been serviceable within the expected use.

    OP my recommendation is shoot it plenty and spend money on mags and ammo. If you find you shoot it frequently or for more than just plinking buy or build a rifle that suits your wants at that time and with features geared towards your use. Triggers, better sights or optics for your purpose usually produce good results.

    Getting some good advice, thanks.
    My first plan was building one. That turned out to be almost as expensive, plus I would have needed some special tools. Came across this one and jumped without knowing much about it.
    I don't plan on any competitions, and I don't hunt. This will be for the range. If I want another later, I'll probably go the build route. By then I should be more familiar.
