Out of Stock


This DPMS Panther Arms LR-308 LRT-SASS is lightly used and in excellent condition. These rifles were originally submitted as a part of the US Army Trials for the SASS / Semi-Auto Sniper System program that would go on to become the M110. DPMS ultimately lost the contract to Knight’s Armament, but DPMS decided to release a version of it for the civilian market. At half the cost of a KAC SR-25, these rifles deliver excellent value for an accurate dependable AR-10 chamber in 308 or 7.62 NATO.


Sniper Central writes:

“For those of you that may not know, SASS is an acronym for Semi-Auto Sniper System and you can read about the US Army’s adoption of the M110 SASS and its capabilities. DPMS submitted their own version of the rifle to the US Army during the trials and while not ultimately selected as the M110, a version of the Knight’s Armament Company (KAC) SR-25 was selected, DPMS decided to offer their SASS on the commercial market. We placed an order for the SASS during the semi-auto craze after the 2008 elections and it literally took us 1.5 years to get the rifle from DPMS. Rest assured that the wait time today is much less.”


The upper and lower receivers are both aluminum; the upper receiver being extruded from 6066-T6 aluminum and the lower receiver being milled from a solid billet of 6061-T6 aluminum. Both the upper and lower receivers are anodized and then a black Teflon coating is applied to help with corrosion protection. The black Teflon finish has a dull matte finish and is quite effective for a tactical rifle. The barrel is a fluted stainless steel barrel that is 18″ long and has what DPMS calls the Panther flash hider attached. The barrel has six lands and grooves and a 1:10″ right hand twist to stabilize the heavier bullets. The barrel is finished in a matte black finish to match the rest of the rifle. The trigger is a JP industries adjustable trigger that is set at the factory in the range of 4.5 – 5 lbs. 


With Remington's bankruptcy and the survival of DPMS as a brand in the air, these rifles are no longer being made and will most likely become more desirable over time. Do not miss this opportunity to buy a very capable rifle at below potential future market value.


Included with this rifle is one 25 round Gen 3 MagPul PMAG.
