Not quite that nice.  It is a DPMS.  Came with a hard case, two 30 rd clips, and a sling.  It has a detachable carry handle.  I wanted that so I can mount a scope at some point, and it has the collapsable stock that I wanted.  I finally decided to get one before the prices went up to the point I couldn't afford one.  Other than playing around with it and maybe the occasional varmint hunt (which I usually take my 22-250) I don't really need it.  I have always wanted one though.  I am going to have a lot of fun shooting it.

1, 2, or 3 point sling preference?  
 
Nothing wrong with DPMS AR's in my opinion either.

I use the Giles Sling from the Wilderness. They are heavy duty, both the sling and hardware.

2 or 3 point.  I have really only played with a 3 point a little and liked that.

I am headed out in a few minutes to shoot it.  Hopefully I can still shoot on of these babies decently.  It has been a few years.

This is a sling like one would use in NRA service rifle match competition and is very heavy duty but a different beast than tactical slings, still I like it much better than the standard sling.  I would also order a Smith Vortex flash suppressor which is a huge improvement.
DPMS makes a fine rifle - I know you will enjoy how accurate it is on the range. The sight is typically zeroed at 300 meters and I find that if you put the front post on the bottom of the black 200 yd center it hits center then move back to 300yds and split the black center in half with the front post  and it hits center with 69 gr smk.
 
When you order something dont forget to pick up some target pasters to cover holes.

I hope all them black gun discussions wasn't a result of me posting my pics.  I would hate to be the cause of that. Wink
