    Hello,

    I'm selling my DPMS Panther LR-308T. It comes with DPMS hard case, operations manual, chamber flag, field maintenance kit, and 2 DPMS 19 round magazines. I'm including 2 extra Magpul 20 round magazines. This is an AR-10 style rifle with free float barrel. The free float barrel LR308's are renowned for accuracy, just google it. The T, stands for tactical, it comes with a 16", 1 in 10 twist, heavy barrel.

    With its capacity for .308win or 7.62 Nato, this is a great multipurpose rifle to serve in a variety of applications. If you were to just have one, this would be a fine choice. Take a look at what the other .308/7.62 Nato "Battle Rifles" are going for and you'll see that this is a much better deal. This rifle not only costs less and is easy on brass for those who reload, it has a lot more applications, modularity, and support from the open market. The AR is "America's Rifle." The AR-10 family sets the standard for accurate, magazine fed .308/7.62x51 NATO round.

    This rifle is barely used and like new. It has been sitting in my gun safe for most of its life. It only has 35 rounds through it, and isn't even fully broken in. I cleaned the chamber and bore after every round for the first 25 rounds and then after the next 10, per DPMS operations manual. They specify another chamber/bore cleaning for every 10 more rounds through 100, with optimum accuracy reached at around 200 rounds.

    I'm looking for $980. I may consider partial trade on a quality bolt action .22lr with an adjustable trigger, ie Savage Mark II series, Marlin XT-22, or CZ.

    FTF, West Portland area. You will need to present a current Oregon Driver's License and sign a Bill of Sale for me. Preference goes to those with a CHL. I'll meet Washingtonians at an FFL in the Vancouver area for transfer.

    For serious buyers, I can meet you at my gun club (Tri-County in Sherwood), so you can shoot it.

    Thanks for looking,
    Matt

    Here is a review of the same model and configuration of rifle:
    DMPS AR-10 Review

    And a review of the LR-308 series by Jeff at Gunblast:
    DPMS Panther .308 Semi-Auto Rifle

    DPMS info and specs:
    Shortly after the LR-308 came onto the scene, law enforcement personnel quickly identified it as an outstanding precision rifle. But many saw more potential than a heavy long range rifle. The LR-308T was designed to be a tactical carbine that would be more maneuverable than a larger rifle, but more powerful and versatile than a lighter, smaller carbine or shotgun.
    The LR-308T features a 16” heavy barrel for minimum weight and length, while still delivering 20 rounds of 308. The high ride receiver will accept a wide range of optics. That and many other available optics make the LR-308T a true tactical carbine.

    Barrel:

    16" Length
    4140 Chrome-moly Steel Heavy
    Barrel
    6 grooves, right-hand 1x10 twist,
    button rifled
    Chamber:

    7.62 NATO
    Method of Operation:

    Gas operated rotating bolt
    Bolt & Carrier:

    8620 steel bolt carrier, heat treated
    and plated per Mil Spec
    Phosphated steel bolt, heat treated
    and plated per Mil Spec
    Sights:

    None (mounting optics only)
    Weight:

    Empty - 8.5 lbs.
    Length:

    35.6"
    Upper Receiver:

    Thick walled, extruded from 7129-T5 Aluminum
    Hard coat anodized per Mil Spec and Teflon coated black
    No dust cover
    Snag free design, smooth side look
    No shell deflector
    No forward assist
    Right hand ejection
    Raised Picatinny rail for easy scope mounting
    Lower Receiver:

    Stock:

    Standard A2 Black Zytel Mil Spec w/trap door assembly
    Handguards:

    Carbine length ribbed free float tube.

    To be perfectly clear, the pics of the LR-308T on the green couch are mine. As for the other pics, that is not my rifle, although it is the exact same model of gun, LR-308T. Everything is LIKE NEW people. The plain pic with the scope is direct from the DPMS website, it's a professional photo of the exact gun we're talking about, less the optics. The gun with the 4-horn sheep from Mars? Not mine, same model though, but no silencer.

    BTW, here's the story about the sheep: A very nice 4 Horn Sheep, shot by DPMS Sales Manager Dustin Emholtz, while in Texas. It was shot at about 75 yards with the 16" Panther™ LR-308T and a Leupold scope.

    You can go here to see more nice hunts with DPMS rifles, lots of other cool bragging with LR-308's if you take a gander while you're there: DPMS: AR-15 Rifles, Parts and Accessories.

    Are you actually still reading this?! Make me an offer! You know you want to.

    "I'm looking for $980. I may consider partial trade on a quality bolt action .22lr with an adjustable trigger, ie Savage Mark II series, Marlin XT-22, or CZ."

    I am a novice shooter and really looking for something to train with. This rifle is just too much gun for me and too expensive to shoot right now, since I am going back to school and working part time. So really, .22lr is what I'm after, but maybe .17hmr? Hit me up.

    I would also consider a high cap .357 revolver for trade. Preferably 6" Taurus 608 or something similar. Maybe a Ruger gp100.

    BTT. Update: I haven't been active for at least a week, but I replied to all PMs now. For the record, I have given another member top priority on this, as he tried very hard to get a hold of me while I was under the weather. As soon as something solidifies, I will mark this posting SOLD PENDING FUNDS. If you don't see SPF, then I am open for business.
