New cartridge/rifle combo, it’s a sub-1/4-MOA sharpshooter!
DPMS Firearms, LLC, founded over 20 years ago by President Randy Luth, began as a small government contract consulting company. Luth, himself a product of a precision machine shop that manufactured M-16, M-14 and M203 parts for Army contracts, advised other small machine shops how to find pertinent government contracts, develop the necessary quality control programs and complete the contract in a timely and profitable manner, all the while continuing to broker M-16/AR-15 Mil Spec parts to the commercial markets. After four years, Luth began phasing out the consulting portion of the business to focus primarily on the sale of .45/1911 & AR-15 parts, kits and accessories. During this time DPMS Firearms, LLC began designing and manufacturing rifle accessories and purchased a manufacturer of lower receivers, and with the ability to machine its own precision barrels, the DPMS line of AR-15/M-16 rifles was born.
Today, DPMS Firearms, LLC is located in St. Cloud, Minnesota and currently ranks as the second largest manufacturer of AR-15 rifles* – trailing only behind Bushmaster®. In addition, Randy Luth holds four U.S. patents for innovative AR-15 rifle products with an additional patent pending. These weapons and patented accessories are currently in use worldwide by law enforcement agencies, military personnel and civilians including U.S. Border Patrol officers, security agencies in Iraq, the Jordanian army, America’s top competitive shooters and big game hunters.
