ST. CLOUD, MN - DPMS Firearms, ("DPMS") is proud to announce the GII series of modern sporting rifles (MSRs). With the new GII, DPMS has done what no other firearm manufacturer has done in 50 years - made the MSR platform better. The DPMS GII is the collective culmination of decades of experience in the shop, on the range, in the field chasing everything from wild game and titles to our nation's enemies.
The heart of the GII is a matched pair of forged, level III anodized, Teflon® coated 7075 receivers, providing improved strength and durability. With the advancements in the forging and bolt geometry the GII has a shorter overall receiver length as well as a reduced receiver diameter making it one of the lightest .308 modern sporting rifles ever - only ½ pound heavier and ½ inch longer than a standard M4-style 5.56/.223 rifle. By comparison, the GII offers an identical length rear of the magazine well to a standard AR15 and same height from center of bore to the picatinny rail which significantly reduces the profile to the current LR 308 receiver. With its adaptability in accepting standard MSR fire control and more standard MSRhandguards than before, the GII core also remains versatile in both tactical and hunting configurations. The end result - lighter, shorter and designed to run flawlessly and is a real game changer.
Revolutionary improvements make the GII the most reliable, longest lasting MSR platform on the market. Keys to this are an all newelastomer extractor spring, new extractor material, dual ejectors, and a steel insert feedramp. These components fundamentally change the way the conventional MSR functions.
Some other manufacturers are content with imitating, and might have stopped with a new forged receiver. But for us, that was just the beginning. We didn't just reconfigure another MSR. We didn't just slap together a few aftermarket components or grow an existing rifle to a larger cartridge. We have fundamentally redefined the way the MSR works. The GII Smaller. Lighter. Stronger.
