New AR today.
 
Picked up a Delton today new in the box $900 plus tax. I was the first
call on the list. 16" barrel, adjustable butt stock, flat top upper.

It's tough to guess whether you did really well or just get passing marks at that price. But I think DelTon, along with S&W, PSA, Stag, and a few others are often among the best options when it comes to low-medium cost ARs.

I think the market is gradually regaining some measure of normality. The other day I saw a decent new RRA complete rifle stay in stock on a site @ $1035 for a few hours.

If there is no impending ban (likely); you probably did okay, but not great. Hard to tell without specifics. But if a ban actually materializes in the coming months (UNlikely), you win in a big way.

Either way, I think you probably got a really solid rifle at a less than crazy price. I've been impressed with the quality:cost ratio of most of the DelTons I've handled.

I've owned a Delton MagPul MOE beofre. MSRP for just under 900 bucks.I now own a S&W MP15 Magpul MOE MSRP $1260
.

Little difference between the 2.
Both have flaws, the Delton had poor finiss on the receiver and a dubious mount of the piatinny on the receiver. the S&W has a crooked (no kidding) front sight post..

Both bolts where MPI both barrels where 4150 but the Delton was CL bore and chamber and the MP15 was melonited.
roughly equivalent guns for a big price difference.I may publish a full comparo when I have the time.

Either way, Delton is good especially for the money. :)

Dont feel like the lone stranger , My FSP is crooked on my newest SBR build :( no biggy irons still hit where I aim and most of the parts on it are used and really its a beater gun for me :)
