Designed 2 Dominate. DPMS (Defense Procurement Manufacturing Services) was founded in 1985 and began in St. Cloud, Minnesota as a small government contract consulting company. The company served as a precision machine shop manufacturing M-16, M-14 and M-203 parts for Army contractors, as well as AR-15 Mil-Spec parts for the commercial market.

Today, the company is part of the Freedom Group and has been moved to Remington's new state of the art facility located in Huntsville, Alabama. According to the BATF, DPMS currently ranks as the second largest manufacturer of AR-15/AR-10 rifles in the country.

At the heart of the design is a direct gas impingement system. Gas is tapped from the barrel as the bullet passes by the port located above the rifle's front sight base. The gas then rushes into the port and down a gas tube located above the barrel and into the upper receiver.

From there, the gas tube funnels into the bolt carrier. This gas system unlocks the bolt and begins the cycling process, but only after the bullet has exited the barrel. Direct impingement has several advantages over gas piston systems. For semi- automatic rifles with a barrel length of 16" or greater, impingement AR-10s are lighter, easier to free float the barrel, and much less expensive to manufacture.

The DPMS G2 rifle represents a revolutionary new design in the AR-10 world. An improved extractor prevents breakages in this big bore platform. For reliable and consistent function to allow the cartridge case to fully exit the firearm, the ejection port has been lengthened.

Another new innovation is the dual ejector system. This lightens the overall load on the ejector springs and makes it much easier for a cartridge to exit the rifle. To reduce the overall weight of the G2 Hunter, the engineers at DPMS scaled down the bolt carrier to the standard diameter of an AR-15, which in turn allowed the company to shorten of the upper and lower, then successfully reduce the size of the barrel profile and barrel extension.

The DPMS G2 Hunter is equipped with a fixed, Magpul MOE Rifle stock allows for solid shouldering of the rifle, while the lightweight, carbon fiber handguard allows for steady handling. It has a positive aluminum magazine catch for easy ejection of magazines. This ergonomic design makes the charging handle, safety selector, magazine release and bolt catch easy to access.

The standard contour 20" 416 stainless steel barrel is coated black for a sleek appearance, and has a target crown on the end, unlike many other AR's. The new lightweight forged monolithic bolt carrier utilizes an internal gas key tower and removable gas key extension. While it may sound counter intuitive, recoil has been greatly reduced through the lighter mass of the carrier.

An all new bolt geometry provides superior lockup and strength. As such, it allows a smaller diameter barrel extension to be employed, in turn allowing a smaller upper receiver to be used-- reducing overall material and weight without compromising strength or reliability.

The DPMS G2 Hunter is chambered for .308WIN cartridges , which allows you to safely fire both full power .308's or lower powered 7.62X51NATO rounds interchangeably without adjustment to the gas system. It has transitioning steel feed ramps that DPMS boasts makes this rifle the most reliable AR10 on the market.

Both upper and lower receivers are forged from durable, lightweight aircraft grade forged 7075-T6 Mil-Spec aluminum. The receivers are lighter and smaller. All surfaces have been rounded and de-sharpened for smooth loading and operation.

The receiver surfaces are then Level III hard coat anodized and Teflon coated to provide superior wear and corrosion resistance. The rifle weighs in at just 7.76 pounds empty and is a fast handling carbine. It includes a 4- round magazine that is standard Stoner pattern and readily accepts Magpul Pmags. All steel parts wear a mil- spec manganese phosphate finish, including the barrel. Build quality is excellent and there is virtually no play between the upper and lower receiver.

No iron sights are included with this variant of the G2 series, but the Picatinny flat top receiver also has attachment points for optics. In the rare event a round fails to go into battery, the rifle is equipped with a forward assist. Similarly, a spring loaded receiver dust cover is designed to keep out dirt and other debris from entering the action, but instantly opens after the first shot.

For service or repair, the rifle is backed by a manufacturer's 3- year warranty. Overall, the DPMS G2 Hunter is an ultra affordable, well built, accurate, extremely reliable and versatile AR-10 rifle designed for many years of reliable service.
