I saw this in an email from DPMS today?

could they be possibly removing the "panther arms" markings from their lowers?

Since I was looking at the S&W 15 Sport, I found their Sportical around the same time. Would be cool to see a CA version.

As long as they don't do what Bushmaster did with their "California legal" AR it could be nice. Don't seal the magwell DPMS! If they do that they can kiss this Cali market goodbye.

Yay.

So DPMS is seeing money going out the window and decided to jump on the bandwagon of slapping a BB on a rifle and calling it "CA-compliant."

Still better off building your own, IMHO (esp since featureless is an option. I'd LOVE to see a major manufacturer make a featureless CA-legal AR).

IIRC, most, if not all DPMS rifles are named AWs

Just build one. thats what I did.

Every part I have is a DPMS part that is on the LRT-SASS, with the exception of the lower.

I used a CMMG lower that fits on the DPMS upper.

I doubt I would notice a difference in handling or firing.

Well assuming they did at least 5 minutes worth of research, it's probably a good assumption that whatever they are coming out with will not have the word "Panther" on it.

I was responding to a post saying that DPMS is going to slap a bullet button on and start shipping to California.

I am rather underwhelmed by their decision. IMHO there are better products from other manufacturers.
