there are going to be outliers in every group. I was merely pointing out the general consensus. some are made better than others and everyone throws a couple lemons every now and again. but as the OP pointed out. if you are shooting $10,000 dollars worth of ammunition out of a single gun then odds are you have the money to replace a barrel and bolt carrier group. as crazy as it sounds there are people that do shoot that and more per year but they often times reload so it's actually costing them around $6,000 but I would agree. if you are going to be doing that then you may as well fork out some extra money on a Seekins Precision or Larue Tactical rifle. for the 95% of AR owners that do not shoot that much then a DPMS is just fine.
