Additional Information
The DPMS Panther Arms Oracle is one of the best tactical rifle values on the market today. Built to bridge the gap between the Sporting and Tactical markets, this introductory level carbine features a 16" light contour barrel, an A3 Upper receiver with a Picatinny Rail, and heat-dissipating GlacierGuards and a collapsible, six-position Pardus buttstock. Altogether, it weighs in at only 6.6 lbs. The flat top A3 upper allows the shooter to mount the optic of their choice on the Picatinny rail. The 16" barrel, although light, provides plenty of velocity for most sporting and tactical applications, while the Pardus stock makes this carbine comfortable for any shooter. 30 + 1 capacity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gun! Bought the DPMS Oracle around Christmas time. It's my first AR15 rifle. At first I worried that it would be a "cheaper," lower quality rifle, but thought I'd give it a shot. Yeah, well, the rifle is stupid accurate. I put on a TruGlo red dot zeroed at 50 yds, and it delivers fantastic groupings even with this less-experienced shooter. So far, NOTHING has failed on it, and I've put more than 1000 rounds down range, including about 250 metal cased shells. I've used 55g and 62g bullets, and the rifle is laser accurate with both weights. My only advice would be to stick with polymer magazines (Pmags). They seem to lock easier into the receiver, plus they're easier to load than the aluminum ones. Do yourself a favor and get one of these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome rifle for very reasonable price. I've had this gun for a few years now. Love it. I pretty much just shoot it for fun. Hunted well with it. I've dialed it in with just a 3x9-40mm scope. Hitting 1/2 - 1'' groups. It cycles very well with all ammo. I would not recommend steel case ammo for any good American weapon, but went well. Just keep lubed, and clean about every thousand rounds with foreign ammo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't beat it for the money In short, I don't think you can beat this rifle for the money. I have owned a DPMS rifle as well as a Daniel Defense, and both have been great, but considerably more expensive. What you get here is a base platform for about the same cost as building your own base platform. Especially when Gander Mountain does a price match plus 10%. Gander mountain price matched bass pro's price of $529 and then they took an extra 10% off from the difference. So my price was $519. On top of all of this, if you apply for a Gander card, you can also get an additional $60 dollar gift card in the mail. As far as the overall quality, and shooting quality, this gun is just fine. The rifle works great with the lighter 55gr ammo due to its 1in 9 twist rate. It is clearly as accurate as I can be with it at 100yrds. Hitting bulls eye and groups are sub 1inch. All in all, it is a great base level intro rifle for the price point. If I thought I needed another one, I would buy it again in a heartbeat. I hope this helps!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great buy Great buy, I would highly recommend this over the pricier ones. I carried one for 4 years and couldnt get enough of it, it never failed me then, and thats the craftsmanship I desire when lifes are on the line.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light Weight,Good Weapon I use the rifle on the range for target practice and also have it for home protection. Being retired military, this rife has all the essential needs for both target practice and home protection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase Great firearm for a very reasonable price. Mounting optics is a breeze. Shoots very well, no problems after 300+ rounds so far. Would have been nice to come with iron sights, but not the end of the world. Very easy breakdown for maintenance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best bang for the buck! This rifle is allowed to be used at work also. I will be keeping this rifle at home for protection and for hunting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First AR platform For recreational use, for short-range, and enthusiest. Low price, starting plateform, and lightweight. The collapsable buttstock feels flimsy and rattles slightly.

Just found out that this rifle can't be shipped to Colorado even though i was able to order it. Gander mtn should fix their website to not allow that to happen.

I am left handed, how difficult is this going to be for me to shoot accurately?

Asked by: Ld5391
I, too, shoot left-handed.  The rifle works just fine.  It doesn't know you're a lefty.  I have no trouble  with ejected brass, either.

is it safe to use 5.56 ammo in this gun.? also looking to use 223 remington tac 55 grain fmj brass by norma. is this a good ammo to use.? also is the chrome moly barrel not as good as a chrome lined barrel.? any info would be very helpful. thank you,

Asked by: bill
Yes, the  Oracle is designed for 5.56 mm ammo, and therefore will also handle .223 as well. I have had mine for about a year now, it has been flawless in operation.  I replaced the Glacier Guard with a free-float handguard from LaRue Tactical, and added their Harris bi-pod fir good measure.  Nice, inexpensive AR.

Is the buffer tube mil spec or commercial?

Asked by: jdubs100
It is commercial buffer tube. if you want to replace the stock it's cheaper in the long run to replace with a Mil-spec buffer tube.  It's easy to do and will give you more stock options.
