I have the DPMS 308 as well, I love the rifle. My only complaint is the trigger is probably around 5-6 pounds. You can get an after market drop in double stage trigger for around $200, from various makers. it's worth the money in my opinion. Let us know what optics you choose

What optics did you put on yours?

I have a Nikon 3x9 40mm Prostaff for now. After I recover from the cost of this build (just over $1500) I'm considering a Hi-LUX Leatherwood M-1200 6x24 50 Camputer ART Scope

If you ever want to put a freefloat rail system on that I happen to have one laying around.

You might find yourself having to put an extension rail on the upper though, just to clear the eye relief on a conventional sniper scope. My dream gun on that platform would have the .308 version of the Acog, but I think that would cost more than the rifle you mount it on.
