There is nothing wrong with delton . this jack wagon wants u to spend $160 at his store and break it off in u at the cash register. Don't go back , take ur business else where

Yes, I am new here and to the AR platform, and Mr Tikki's stickies have been a great help to me, thankyou Agent. I think I must build it, and will move forward on the Smith and Wesson lower; I like the rollmark as well.100.00 psa lower plus shipping plus transfer to ffl is a wash. Looks like there will be plenty of time to choose parts while manufacturing catches up, lol

If you have the patience, build it.

Its soo much sweeter and you can have something soo much nicer if you build it yourself. Your build is >>>> Delton, DTI, DPMS, etc etc.

Really...
I also love the roll mark on the S&W but there's even more to love - like the nicely flared magwell and the satiny smooth finish plus the laser etching of M&P on the right side. My first stripped lower was the M&P and it's still my favorite after four builds. $130 isn't a bad price in today's climate.

The Delton complete rifle kit is awesome. I bought a stripped lower for $100 and got the 16&rdquo; light weight delton kit for $470. This was my first AR...still a great shooter.

Excellent choice in a lower. Looks great doesn't it!

Put a quality upper on it and you'll have a top notch rifle. PSA would be the budget choice for quality.

ummmm, that is the place that jacked up the price for the stripped lower due to demand, as told to me by the sales rep. They were quite pleasant and responsive to questions though. I am not bashing them but do not agree with price gouging tactics. Didn't want to mention their name first here in this thread. Thankyou again Agent Tikki for your help in the stickies, responses, and for future questions. I am an AR convert, tk
