Can I order one of your AR rifles with different furniture and ar accessories on it?

Yes, customers can order our ar rifles with different ar accessories and furniture. Our standard furniture for the tactical rifle line is Magpul MOE Stock, Hand-guard, and Pistol Grip. Standard furniture for DeepWoods and Precision lines are Ergo Pro Stock, Ergo Suregrip pistol grip, and ALG Hand-guards (Leapers for the AR-10).  Other types of furniture and ar accessories may be special ordered, but may increase lead time and price.

 

DOES A BILLET RECEIVER AND UPPER UNIT HAVE THE SAME STRENGTH AS FORGED UNITS?

Billet material rates around 5% higher than other materials in key engineering strength measurements, primarily tensile and bearing yield strength. 

 

WHAT ADVANTAGE DO I GET IN AMERICAN-MADE PRODUCTS?

As a domestic company located in Fulton, MS, we commit to to having our fabrication / manufacturing done locally, and in fact, we do most of it in-house. One advantage of doing so is that it allows us flexibility in “mass customization.” Most of our rifles are custom and made-to-order. Because of this, we can track, control and prioritize our manufacturing efforts to align with our customers needs. With regards to the components that we do not fabricate in-house, we love having it done not only in the U.S., but as close as possible to our facility.

 

WHAT MAKES DSP ARMORY BETTER THAN SOME OF THE MORE ESTABLISHED BRAND ON THE MARKET NOW?

With the AR market saturated with manufactures what is that one thing about DSP Armory that makes me want to give you a serious look? At DSP Armory, we take maximum advantage of our small company structure. We don’t have 150 years of history, tradition, and reputation to fall back on if things are not right.  Nobody is going to buy DSP AR-15 because it’s what their grandfather used, whether it’s worth a bean or not.  A DSP Armory rifle is a tough built, finely tuned, methodically designed and highly optimized firearm. This means that attention to detail and unquestionable reliability are paramount. We choose each component based on its ability to perform, not how cheap we can buy a bucket full of them. 

 

Every rifle that leaves our factory gets personal attention from almost every member of the team, right down to the owners. Members range from avid hunters to outdoorsmen and shooting enthusiasts. Some add engineering experience, while others add military and law enforcement experience. Owners and the rest of the team handle, inspect, operate and often proof fire every single firearm produced. These are not cookie cutter commodity rifles sold at your local big-box store. These are professional grade firearms, purpose built for the demanding task at hand, whatever that task may be. We design our firearms to flawlessly perform for the shooter.

 

WHAT ARE SOME OF THE UNIQUE FEATURES THAT MAKE YOUR RIFLES BETTER THAN THE REST?

We design the entire receiver set with the shooter in mind. We begin with a strong, integral trigger guard, shaped to reduce uncomfortable rub-points. This allows the use of a gloved trigger finger, helping the shooter’s strong hand to remain in a more natural and ergonomic position. This adds comfort and confidence for that “once in a lifetime” shot as well as in a long day of shooting. We reshape and optimize other areas of the rifle to protect the controls while allowing easy indexing for operating the rifle.

 

The magazine well has several key features.  The inside of the mag-well is significantly flared to aid in faster reloads with less “eyes down” time. We reshape and reinforce the outside edges for shooter comfort. An omni-directional grip pattern enhances the front face, intended to look as good as it functions.

 

CAN I BUY UPPERS AND LOWERS FROM YOU DIRECTLY?

In most cases, no. Our production is tight and every component has a home allocated before the first chips hit the floor. So, squeezing in an extra receiver means putting a delay on a completed rifle. Sometimes we can make a few available, but not often.

 

HOW MANY DIFFERENT CALIBERS DO YOU OFFER?

All calibers compatible with the rifle system are available by special order. DSP AR-15 Calibers: .204 Ruger, 6.5 Grendel, 6.8SPC, .30Rem AR, .450 Bushmaster, .458 Socom, .50Beowulf, etc. DSP-10 Calibers: .243Win, .260Rem, 6.5 Creedmoor, 7mm-08, .338Fed, .358Win, etc.

WHY USE AN AR RIFLE FOR HUNTING VARMINTS, HOGS AND BIG GAME?

Working on this one…

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FORGED AND BILLET RECEIVERS IN AR RIFLES?

Forged: The dies of a forge heat and crush a slug of metal to build a forged rifle. Think of it as a hammer and anvil, each having half the shape of the slug you want. The forge forces the medal to shape. This process eliminates almost all the waste material, allowing for inexpensive manufacturing. However, it also limits the ability to customize a part. There is no “spare” material in which to cut or add new features. These features include solid trigger guards, enlarged magwell flares and more.

 

Billet: A solid block of medal, however large, must fit within the original dimension to create the finished part. This allows a designer to add features to the rifle in almost any way imaginable. That is, as long as it doesn’t interfere with the “universal” features that are the key to the AR-type rifle family. Rifles born from billet allow for larger trigger guards, made of integral metal instead of a separate plastic component. Billet also allows for enlarged and flared magwell, attractive design and reinforcement. In forging, the metal is already removed, which makes these things difficult if not impossible.

 

Since the barrel is the heart of any rifle what barrels are you using and why?

Our rifles feature both Bergara and DC Machine barrels, depending on rifle caliber and configuration. Both barrel makers supply us with precision high quality, highly accurate barrels.

 

I have read in the website that every rifle is test fired three times at 100 yards using standard, off the shelf ammo with a moa accuracy. What does this mean and why does this matter?

We take every rifle to the range and put it through a series of function and performance tests. Rifles are laser bore sighted, fired three times with commercial standard ammunition at a standard target at a range of 100 yards. Rifles are properly built and capable of delivering precise and repeatable shots if bullets strike within 1” of each other. The rifle includes this proof target, testifying that it meets our accuracy requirements. 

 

This is key to shooting of almost any kind. Whether you are having fun at the range or practicing self-defense, accurate rifle requirements are essential. The ability to deliver a round to the exact spot intended is among the most important functions of any rifle. For more information on MOA as a measurement of accuracy, click here.

 

Will you sell directly to a law enforcement officer or military personnel?

Certainly, within the regulations and limitations of the law. All of our equipment is available for purchase by individuals where department/organizational policy allows.

 

Do you provide special models and pricing for law enforcement agencies? What about military-specific operations?

We have a license in providing weapon systems to those who require tools for more specialized tasks. We are capable of providing SBR, Class III, Suppressed, and other weapon system configurations that are task specific.  Please contact us with your specific requirements.

 

Do you sell to law enforcement and to the military?

We strongly support those who defend our nation, at home and abroad, both in military and law enforcement roles. We want to provide the best tools to those with these difficult tasks.

 

Can I order a cerakoted rifle and if so what colors do you have available?

Standard colors of Cerakote are OD Green (H-240Q), Desert Tan (Color #), Flat Dark Earth (H-267Q).  All other colors of Cerakote are available as an upgrade.

 

Can I order my rifle in a different color than black?

We offer rifles in anodized black as a standard, as well as several other colors. We offer several other colors, some anodized and others applied with Cerakote (ceramic epoxy composite). There is also a number of patterns of camouflage, some of which are also anodized on or hydro-dipped.

  

Do you sell the DSP Armory brand of rifles in any other countries besides the U.S.?
