    Picking up my ar15 I ordered from my ffl dealer. Anything I should do to inspect it? I don't know how all that goes. Thanks!

    Sounds like you bought a novice grade AR. Lots of things to check on those.

    Delton is a POS rifle. Typical newb who doesn't know better.

    Don't you know that for just a couple hundred bucks more you could have purchased a Colt 6920?

    I have the same one with a Eotech 512 and Magpul flip up rear sight. Good carbine. You should like it. Plenty of good videos on youtube to guide you along.

    Can't wait to hit the rang. Especially since it's my first ar. I realized when I pull the charging handle back it feels a little rough and if you pull it back forward gently, it doesn't close all the way. If I pull the charging handle all the way back and let go, it closes. Just some paranoia?

    No. Just goes to show you how crappy your Delton is.

    Perfectly normal. What you are doing is "Riding the bcg home" and is not how it was designed. Pull that mofo back like a slingshot and let er rip. If you want to be quiet make sure you use the forward assist to get the bolt into battery.

    Also, make sure you heavily lube the BCG and lightly lube the buffer spring. After 500 rounds it'll feel much smoother.

    run a bore snake down the tube, just to make sure it's clean as a whistle with no metal shavings, grease globs etc.
