I'm not so concerned about the receiver as long as it's in spec and not made of carbon.

Just know what you want and what will fit your needs. You get what you pay for but often times there isn't a big gap in prices.

Well now that we've ruled out home defense and it comes down to personal use, plinking and "I want one" maybe Del-Ton then, maybe not. No opinion here...

I've owned a del-ton for a few years. Flawless in operation. Their customer service stinks, and I would never...ever do business with that company again, however. Screwed me over for their mistake.

Im just going to wait on the 10.5" PSA to get back in stock , So far so good on the 16" carbine I bought from them , I now have around 500+ rds thru it without any issues other than the one FTF on the first 10 rounds that I shot thru it new which Im going to attribute to a new mag . Better stuff out there ? we all know there is better, higher end stuff out there but I cant swing $1000+ for the upper I want and SO far I have had good luck with what I bought , Seems as thought the PSA pistol uppers are made by a quality manufacturer to Mil Spec . I did find a damn nice Yankee Hill 7" upper reasonable but I dont know much about them either

We have two Del-tons, I carry mine on duty. No problems with either one.

I think it should be a requirement to give a background on your shooting habits when saying things such as, "I've had ____ for two years and it's been flawless." A round count is good but doesn't tell much about the reliability of an AR. I can say I have 2k flawless rounds out of a certain rifle but in what manner were those rounds fired. 2k over a weekend in an operators carbine course is a lot different then 2k over a year, month, or even a week.

Pure, I think you will be happy w/ the PSA. I'm about to get one myself but can't decide b/w a replica of the M4 I had in the Army or the SS.
