I put on a mag pull stock from the full stock it was originally configured with.

They told me then that the gas block would likely need to be adjusted and not to panic if it jammed.

It did, I brought it back, they took it out to their home and shot it and adjusted it, then I had no problems at all firing PMC ammo.

Switched to the Wolf and it FTEd every round - I had to pull the charging handle each time - 10 rounds in a row.

Put the PMC back it and it was smooth sailing once again for another 100 rounds.

Curious, what buffer and spring? M16 BCG? You might want to start a thread on yours Colossal...

Looks good Slow. I like that they came with those ladder style rail covers. Added to the already great value of the upper.

What size rail is that? It looks like the 15". DD Lite, correct?

Looks great, Slow! I would have sworn that was an 18" barrel at least! Nice rifle, excellent parts too.

DEL TON SUCKS!!!!!!!!! 14 weeks and finally my rifle arrived with NO TRIGGER GROUP!! Idiots! Del Ton is a company full of idiots and half ass people. I will never use del ton again. After all this waiting and no trigger group! No response from del ton, no apologies, no "we'll get right on that and send it out" no nothing! My dealer had to stop payment through the credit card company because he could not get anyone at del ton to answer his calls or emails. I should have spent the extra 100-200 dollars and just piece built the rifle. It is unbelievable! 14 WEEKS and still they screw up. I had to order my trigger group through another company, after I told that company my story their response was " we see this from Del Ton all the time " Check out del tons facebook page and you'll see this is a common problem. I hope they go out of business! I hate them! I have filled a BBB claim against them and plan on bashing their name forever. I just can not believe what a bunch of stupid people they are.
