The DPMS LR-308 Semi Auto Sniper System (SASS) was born of military necessity. US Military Snipers and marksmen overseas found themselves rapidly switching from scenarios involving precision long range shooting one moment, to close, violent encounters where they were at a disadvantage due to the low ammunition capacity and slow rate of fire of their bolt action rifles. The Government sought a solution to this problem…The DPMS SASS is the answer. With an 18” fluted bull barrel, free floating 4 rail hand-guards, and JP adjustable Trigger, it is capable of sub-MOA accuracy at long range, fulfilling its role as a precision rifle. The 19 + 1 ammunition capacity and semi auto fire control group ensure the shooter is never outgunned, and allows for faster follow up shots. The Magpul PRS stock (new for 2008, previous models feature a VLTOR modstock), Panther Flash hider, DPMS Mangonel back up iron sights, and A3 receiver, complete the package.

    1st review

    Chose this rifle because of its versatility as a battle rifle as well as a precision rifle, although its a bit heavy, If I had to hump it around all the time I might have chosen differently. All of the accessories I would have put on one I put together from the ground up came in one package (Vltor stock, flip-up front and rear iron sights, collapsible bi-pod, etc). It is extremely accurate and eats the variety of ammo I have put through it. Using a Leupold Mark 4 10x40mm LR/T with Nightforce unimount rings with an Aimpoint CompM3 for CQB.

    This weapon is extremely accurate and comes loaded with plenty of upgrades, I had the pleasure of testing a friends and .5 MOA at 100 yards and I am purchasing one before years end.

    Expensive rifle but accurate long range. Selected by USMC as a sniper rifle.
