Product Description
Some people like sights, some want optics, and some want a featherweight rifle-the DPMS Panther A3 Lite 16 provides a platform to have all three. All you need to do is add your own optics, back up sights, or carry handle and you'll be ready to go. Every A3 Lite 16 is built with a forged, A3-style flattop receiver that makes the perfect platform for anything you want to attach. This 6 pound rifle has a 7075-T6 aircraft aluminum alloy upper with a forged 7075T6 aircraft aluminum alloy receiver; both are hard-coat anodized per Mil Spec and Teflon coated black. The rifle's trigger guard, magazine release button, and delta ring are all made of aluminum to keep weight down. The 16", button-rifled, 4140 chrome-moly steel, light contour barrel is precision accurate with 6 grooves and a 1 in 9" twist. A Pardus carbine stock, GlacierGuards, and an A2 birdcage flash hider complete the package.

    Best Uses

      The Gander Mountain associate who helped me in making my choice was very helpful. I thought I would never want one but national events made me rethink this. I looked at AR's in various price ranges, makers and features. I chose this DPMS based on price and flexibilty of the gun. I have cycle several hundred rounds from different manufacturers with no cycling problems. I have found it's accuracy better than I had hoped for. At 100 yards, with open sights, few rounds are off the 8.5 X 11 paper target. I am very pleased with it's performance.
