Actually this thread's been going on since before that YouTube video ... Is the M16 any good? Is Colt any good? Is Bushamster any good? Now it's DTI vs. DPMS.

The biggest issue with assembling an AR isn't so much getting the parts together right - it's getting the right parts together. You'll remember the quality of a gun long after you forget how much you paid for it.

I'll contribute to this thread some more.

After I sold my beloved DTI (aka Delton) to a good friend (I was getting a LMT) it has never had a single malfunction with me.
Even the Tula Ammo which is almost all he shoots has done veyr well.

I think he has had 2 cases where the Tula failed to cycle the bolt fully back into battery but I think we can all agree thats an Ammo issue since the Tula is well know be loaded a bit soft, with some rounds occasionally very soft.

I doubt even my $2300 LWRC's would fully cycle Tula all the time.

Typical advise on some of the other forums I frequent ,


Criminals Prefer Unarmerd Victims....
