Default DEL-TON lower receiver

Does anyone have an opinion on the DEL-TON lower receiver? I've never heard of them until this evening.

I believe all of their lowers are forged, and in spec, so they are good to go.

It's like we answer questions and no one ever reads the replies... LOL

There nothing wrong with Del-Ton.

For the most part, a receiver is a receiver is a receiver. As long as it's not pot metal crap, or made by Luke's Tire Center and AR Shop, you are good to go.

Many folks here have bought and assembled on Del Ton lowers and with their parts kits...

Thanks, actually it's a UAG rear sight and seems to work really well, it's a milled sight and very beefy. I only paid $28 with shipping from Ultimate Arms.

WOW...not bad at all. It looks to be adjustable, too? Does it allow for windage and elevation?

Slow,

Yes it does, big adjustment knob on the right side for windage and big wheel on the bottom for elevation. Distinctive clicks and takes a little effort to move them so little chance of accidental movement to affect your zero. Sight sits tight and fits really well on a A3 upper and comes with both large and small peep sights.
