A Del-Ton stripped lower should be fine, there are better but I wouldn't worry about durability. I would consider a better LPK, receiver extension, H buffer and stock to use with it.

..."emailed every manufacturer"? No wonder the net is so slow tonight!

I'm a little upset Bravo Company does not offer a military discount. You would think they would, do to using a military like company name

Good point. At first that does come off as strange but you must recognize the amount of quality and money they put into their product then look at the price at which they sell that product. You're getting a "top tier" "battle worthy" rifle for sometimes less than some sub standard offerings.

That's true but all big name companies give some type of discount, and there pricing is very similar

But like mjkeat said, you're getting a battle worthy rifle for a great price. If you want a further discount get a blemished BCM lower which will knock off about $100 and no one ever complains about the blemish.

Another discount: If you're creative you can do a build and come in cheaper than a complete AR from most quality manufacturers. If nothing else you'll knock off the 11% FET on a complete rifle that can be over $100.

It is hard to get just a complete BCM upper for 850.00
I have a Delton on a Spikes lower and have had 0 problems with it. Currently building a Palmetto now. I would say that Palmetto, Spikes and Delton would be good for the price you are looking at.
