I think pike didn't read too far into the threads, either that or he didn't understand the debate...

The DPMS will make you happy, keep you shooting, and get you frowned upon by the AR Snobs.

Del-Ton is the dark horse. I have seen a lot and shot a few. Nice gun.

If that is all the money you want to spend, pick up a S&W M&P Sport.
Good as the others, without a forward assist or bolt cover. But the Snobs leave you alone as it is still a S&W.

I have a del-ton upper and I have been very happy with it. I have put 3000 rounds through it in the last 3 months and have had zero malfunctions. Del-ton seem to be a good product but customer service is not the best in my experience. If I were to do it again I would go with palmetto state armory. I think palmetto's complete kit was only $50 more and they have wonderful products and customer service.

I would never buy anything just because I was worried about what others "snobs" think.

So tell us muddpup, following your logic, do you always buy the cheapest product out there? Cheapest house, cheapest truck, cheapest tires, cheapest piece of steak, cheapest TV, cheapest parachute? Or are you a snob at times?

LOL I must be a "snob" because when my baby was born I got the most expensive car seat I could find. I guess I could have went with the cheapest one but I was so worried that the child safety seat snobs would give me sh!t so I spent the extra $60 bucks and went all out. Looking back now we never did use it to its full potential (car accident). Better quality is not a bad choice when it comes to protecting those that you love.

Most expensive doesn't always mean the best.
