- Quality at a Great Price.
My purchase price was $843.00 for this rifle, and I must say it was worth every penny. I spent many hours researching and comparing AR-10s before I settled on the DB10ELB. I did not want to spend over $1,000, but I also wanted to get the best bang for my buck. Over the last few years, there have been many sub-$1,000 AR-10s come to the market, and you can't really go wrong with most of them.
The main reasons I went with this particular rifle was 1. Cost/quality ratio. 2. Excellent reviews. 3. Accuracy.
1. The fact that this rifle delivers a beautiful 18" stainless steel barrel, Magpul accessories, a nice rail system, and reinforced areas like high pressure firing pin, extra strong bolts, and a nice strong lower for this price just can't be beat. Most 16" entry rifles are around $800, so for just a tiny bit more you can get all this? A no-brainer for me.
2. The reviews I saw attested to its reliability, quality of parts, and accuracy and I can confirm all of that. I've shot approximately 100 rounds through the rifle now using Aguilera 150gr, PPU (145gr, 165gr, and 180gr), and Remington Core-Lokt (150gr), and I've not had any issues with ejecting, feeding, or firing at all. The trigger is basic but crisp, no creep or mush, and although I couldn't measure it, it was not bad when it came to the force required to pull the trigger.
3. Accuracy was excellent after sighting in, using a Nikon Prostaff 3-9x40 scope. I achieved slightly less than 1- MOA 3 shot groups at 100 yards, often with stacks. I consider this fantastic, especially considering I am not even close to a regular range guy.
Other notes: Just a few (small) things. The safety-fire switch was quite stiff when I first got it. After oiling it, it is about 60% better, but still not quite as smooth as my AAC MPW AR-15's. I don't much care for the keymod railing, I'd of preferred a lightweight picatinny quad rail (this is a personal preference). The gun was very dry when I got it, so do give it a good oil down. The black coating on the gun also appears and feels cheaper than my AR-15, but it's doesn't appear to effect it's quality, as I scratched it installing a keymod adapter, or thought I did, until I realized it was the adapter that was being scratched and not the rail system, and it was just leaving metal pieces on the rail system. The magpul magazine it came with works excellent, as do Lancer mags. Finally, this is true of most any semi-automatic, but it's a bit rough on the brass. If you want to reload multiple times, stick to the nicer quality brass (PPU brass had only small nicks in it, Aguila was pretty roughed up).
Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase and I believe the gun is a great deal for those who want quality at a great price. (Posted on 8/10/2017)
