i have actually held a few of them and had even considered buying one when i was shopping for my AR a few years ago. i got a good deal on an older lightly used Bushmaster M4A2 Carbine.

the Del-Ton felt solid and didn't feel or appear to be cheap looking at all. what i saw and felt, and have read in different reviews and from those who own them, i would not rule them out as possible candidate to buy.

like Hoovco, i really have nothing but good reports about them.

Solid rifle. The only thing i did was restake the bcg not that it really needed it. But just for the heck of it. And that only took a 1/2 turn.
Other than that nada zilch zip nothing to add. After 3.5k rds i trust it.
To go any where with!!

I have put thousands of rounds through my Del-ton. It has worked flawlessly. I have done some minor modifications, Spikes buffer, Battlecomp, and Eotech.

Another good thing about Delton is they offer all sorts of configurations.
Heavy Barrell, light barrell, optics ready or w/ fixed front sight post.

I had a very nice Magpul MOE w/ Heavy Barrell and regret selling it.
It had MPI/HPT bolt, CL chamber and CL barrell etc.

some people are just gun snobs and if you don't have the same few brands they have, then your gun is worthy and they will make fun of it. those are few and far between here.

partner if it performs for you as you expect it to and you are happy with it, then ignore the snobs and just go on enjoying it.

personally, i think it looks pretty good. enjoy your Del-Ton. i would.

I bought my Del-ton the day after Obama was re-elected I've only put about 500 rounds through mine, but no problems so far and I like the rifle. I would have no problem buying another.

No doubt these days you take what you can get but when supply was strong those good ol' boys from SC kicked DTI's butt pretty good. I'm from NC but have to tip my hat to PSA. I don't know how they do it but their $700 milspec AR blows away all the others at that price. Same goes at other price points.

Of course enjoy the rifles you already have and call me a snob if you want but anyone buying today would be foolish to ignore PSA.

I have a Del-ton Echo 316/MOE with an Eotech 512 and Magpul back up sights. Its a solid sub-moa shooter with quality factory ammo or my handloads. Personally I dont think Del-ton gets enough credit for the quality rifles they make. From entry level to top notch patrol carbines and everything in between. I love mine.

I bought my DPMS the week of the election. $609.99 It's never failed. I even fired 60 rounds of steel just to see what would happen. I actually went into PSA over in Columbia last time I was driving through, the store was nice but the employee I talked to was a major asshat. I'm sure they get the same 4 or 5 questions 100's of times a day, but hey that's your job you should be accustomed to it. I did buy the ATI .22 Tactical upper from them back in November and had it in hand in 4 days. It's been a great little pea shooter for inexpensive range days
