The rest he shot from the bench. Not bad at all for a 10 year old.
That's awesome! I don't have kids , but this makes me want some.

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.
PSA is a class above all you listed. I've owned a Delton Echo316 and an M&P ORC. Neither are even close to my PSA. Heads above that class.

^^^^agreed. Psa is outstanding. Espically for the price. I always assumed that because of the price tag that they were a lesser bushmaster, delton, dpms kind of company, then I built one. Just got it done last week, shot it twice so far. Its incredible for the money I put in it and I started gathering parts in early december and still built it for cheap. I've been in the us army infantry for almost the last decade and I have shot a lot of colts, I would put my psa up against any colt m4 out there any day of the week. Just my 2 cents

Not so much...

Primers maybe, but I will be okay for a bit.
