View Full Version : Help finding gun

Well I had a DPMS LR243 on order and they called back and said it was a year out. They are over 100,000 guns back ordered now. If anyone knows where I can get a 223 or the LR243 I sure could use a heads up. I was going to buy a 223 upper for the gun anyway so the faster I can get the gun the better, then I will look for the upper I am missing.

I have a DPMS 20" bull with the cryo barrel and the JP trigger upgrade on order as well. When I ordered it Nov. 11 they said it would be a couple of weeks extra because they are busy. I checked on it a couple weeks ago and they said since it has upgrades it could be 24 months. I guess I will just wait on it. I think all the gun makers are going through this buying frenzy.

Yes but someone has to have one. I mean they are sending them out to dealers everyday. Gotta be someone who backed out on an order some where.

I know, I am a DPMS direct dealer and none of the distributers have them either.

I was hoping one of the guys would walk in a shop and see one on the shelf.

Found one local, but thanks guys. I been doing allot of research the last few weeks. Seems Bushmaster and DPMS are owned by the same company as Remington. Well DPMS made it's run of this years for Remington, gun is called the R-25 it comes fully cammoed with a 4.5 once trigger. It's the same as the DPMS LR-243. I found one at a small place here in Spokane, I pick it up Wends, they closed before I could get there today, so I got it on hold.
I still have a DPMS LR-243 ordered that will be here in a year, I think I will keep that one for Debe, and then get me another one in 7mm08 or get a R-25 upper. Here's a picture of the gun.
