    I Picked myself up a new AR this afternoon. Working with a limited Budget I bought a Nice Del-Ton. The company is NC based just 45 miles up the road from me and was started by former LEO's so figured it be worth me giving my money to them. I feel this will be a good start.
    I was only able to get one photo before it fell out into the Cape Fear river as I crossed the bridge on my way home. So here it was. Sorry for Pic Quality.

    What a tragic loss. :(

    If it were not sinking to the bottom, what were your plans for it? Losing the front post sight, getting a set of BUIS and free floating the fore end? Or what?

    Too bad about your loss. Looks like you had a nice stick there....:cool:

    I was open to suggestions, for the budget conscience person, will still take them for the next time though.

    Well, if that rifle came into the shop and the owner asked what would I do to increase it's ability to put rounds on target.....

    I would suggest a free floated fore end, that will increase accuracy right out of the gate.

    I would suggest the 15 minute trigger job, or I would suggest changing out the trigger if target/varmint shooting was in order.

    I would suggest dumping that ramp sight and removing that carry handle, getting a good heads up scope for CQB or a scope for target shooting, then getting a set of back up iron sights, just in case.

    A good sling if this is your SHTF weapon. I really like a good two point sling myself.

    Some good magazines and a few other special tricks, you would be good to go. :D

    You know, if you still had the weapon. Damn shame brother....:cool:

    Is it me or are more and more of us buying up SUR's.

    Hell I am already looking for uppers for mine if it ever gets here. I think it might have fell in the rappahannock.

    Damn shame, Shihan.

    Oh, well save up for a just as nice one for the next time.

    What were you hopin to use it for, mostly? Target or varmant or both? Too bad that river does not run north or I would wait on it so I could dispense some yotes with it.

    See, now I am thinking of going that direction instead of a new pistol direction, so curse you! *shaking fist* :D

I was raised in Elizabethtown my family has been there for many years. :D Oh, to re-live those summers on White Lake where we all tied our boats togeather in the center of the lake and had such fun, after someone made a run to Fayetville for beer as Bladen county was dry of course.

    If I had that stick, the first thing to go would be that A2 grip.

    Take a look at the Hogue 15000

    or Ergo Sure Grip

    for an instant low cost upgrade!

    Such a shame, another fine rifle suffers a premature demise...seems this forum is cursed. At least Gary won't be getting his hands on this one.

    Nice stick you HAD there butter fingers. :rolleyes:

    If you still had it, I would have advised you to follow JD's and Cane's stick pimping advice. ;)

    :( Sorry about your recent pick-up and following loss. I hope you at least got to fondle it a bit before the accident.

    Del-ton makes some very nice pieces, I think they are one of the better kit/full manufacturers out there. Last year I was on the phone with them, a couple days late. The only thing that stopped me from putting in the order was the 4-6 week wait time, that had already started after the election. Otherwise, I would have had one of their mid-length kits, and a heavy barrel.

    Their complete pieces are well put together, too. Quality wise, they don't take a back seat to anyone else out there. So you did good, for however long it lasted ;)
