An Affordable AR-15. 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-15s are lighter, easier to free float the barrel, and much less expensive to manufacture.

The DPMS Oracle is equipped with a commercial "Pardus" 6- position collapsible stock allows the shooter to adjust length of pull to their personal preference, while the carbine length "Glacier Guard" handguard provides steady handling. It has a positive aluminum magazine catch for easy ejection of magazines.

The gas key has been properly staked to the bolt and carrier. The 8620 steel bolt has been High Pressure Magnetic Particle Inspected for high quality assurances.

An ergonomic design makes the charging handle, safety selector, magazine release and bolt catch easy to access. The single stage, service grade trigger is both positive and breaks cleanly at 7- pounds.

The lightweight contour 16.1" 4140 chrome moly steel barrel includes an A2 flash hider. The 1:9" twist rate is fast enough to stabilize heavy bullets like the 69gr match round, while still capable of accurately firing standard 55gr ball ammo.

The DPMS Oracle is chambered for 5.56 NATO cartridges , which allows you to safely fire both full power 5.56 or lower powered .223 rounds interchangeably without adjustment to the gas system. It does not include M4 feed ramps, but feeding is ultra reliable under everything but deplorable operating conditions.

Both upper and lower receivers are forged from durable, lightweight aircraft grade 7075-T6 aluminum. Due to the fact the bolt locks into a steel extension on the barrel and not the receiver, the DPMS Oracle can easily use such lightweight construction materials without sacrificing structural integrity.

The receiver surfaces are then hard coat anodized and dry film lubed per military spec to provide wear and corrosion resistance. The rifle weighs in at just 6.4 pounds empty and is a fast handling carbine. It includes one 30- round magazine. 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.

While no sights are not included with the package, the Picatinny flat top receiver and gas block have attachment points for optics or adding front and rear iron sights. 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 Oracle is an ultra affordable, well built, accurate and versatile AR-15 rifle designed for many years of reliable service.
