Product Summary

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.
