Red Light-Green Light-White Light

August 31, 2009

August 1, 2008

So successful was the 7.62 x 51mm rifle designed for the military that DPMS officials decided to build a 5.56 x 45mm version of the gun. Called, appropriately enough, the Mini SASS, this new rifle has many of the same features that made its big brother so popular.

Holographic Laser Reflex Sight

August 1, 2007
Lightweight, waterproof, and shockproof, Sightmark’s Dual Shot is distinguished from other reflex sights by its accompanying laser that is in parallel precision for the highest accuracy when shooting at even the fastest moving targets, and by its 0 to infinity usage capabilities. The laser can also be removed from the Dual Shot for use on its own, or reattached depending on preference.

DPMS Panther Arms LRT-SASS Rifle

May 1, 2007

Simply put, the LRT-SASS is an AR-15 on steroids. It is larger in size, larger in caliber, and heavier in weight. The LRT-SASS I used for this review arrived in a padded “gun case” with the owner’s manuals, two 19-round magazines, one LRT with four position handguards with covers, Mangonel front/rear flip-up sights, a sling, and a Harris bipod—all in all, a ready-to-use package.
