Del-Ton AR15's: Any Good?
#1
I don't much about different companies, aside from the big names like Colt, Bushmaster, DPMS, LaRue, et cetera. I know there are countless different companies making rifles now. This one looks like a deal: https://www.classicfirearms.com/dltdtspo...-239312069, but is it too good to be true? Can a decent quality AR be had for less than a grand?

I figure, spend the $479 on the rifle, another $200 on MAGPUL furniture, and some ammo, and you'd still be undder a grand, total.

A few years ago I (with a lot of help from Lycanthrope) put an AR together with a Del-Ton upper and a Stag Arms lower, no complaints at all.

A buddy of mine has one, loves it. Never jammed, no broken parts. Few thousand rounds through it. People shy away because of the price, but they seem solid.

Nothing bad heard about them from owners I know, either. Jeff Quinn did a write up on that model back in 2012. Just search the Gunblast.com site.

This would be a lot more fun to read on ARFCOM.

Really though, I believe them to be fine. I also believe that others have come along in the 7 years or so since I had considered buying a DelTon that are the same as, or better at a similar price point.

Hard to beat that price though for a complete rifle.

Has a pencil barrel - lighter.
Not sure which is the preferred barrel twist rate - I know it depends on the type of ammo you plan to run. (Nothing critical, but some bullets get more accuracy with a "matching" twist. (if that made any sense)


Prices are stupid-low these days. Never been a better time to buy.
What's funny is that you can almost be guaranteed to find a better price on a NEW rifle than on a used one in the classifieds because so many people had bought their rifles at much higher prices and now they are hoping to get back what they paid for them. Ain't gonna happen when a person can buy new for less.

From what I read, they are along the same quality line as a DMPS. Not bad and they will do the job. A lot of catalogs sell them, so they can't be that terrible.

No. I'm still researching other items and options right now.

That's the beauty of AK47s - no research required.
