Their A2 Tactical 16" look like it may be a mid-length.

That's a "dissipator." The FSB is "fake" as the gas block is under the handguards.


DPMS is about as far down the quality chart as you can get. Why the fixation?

For midlengths try CMMG, RRA, Armalite, Bravo Company.

There's no need to insult the OP's choice of manufacturer. Not everyone can afford a $3,000 build by one of the pricier companies. Sometimes when you have to decide between guns, braces, and house payments, you 'll get a beer rather than go thirsty for 12 y.o. scotch.

Who said I'm insulting him? DPMS is low quality is a statement. You can get better quality for about the same price from other makers.
