Always on sale but that's not an excuse not to stock up. I finally put a few of mine together.

I like that DelTon headspaces the rifles ahead of time. Providing you use their BCG, I feel you are GTG. Now how they assemble it, I cannot speak to in general, only in my experience.

I have two of their uppers and have had no issue.

Clandestine says he likes the components, but not always assembled to spec.

YMMV.

Good info, thanks. It might be my first rifle to play with some new tools after taking the SOTAR armorer class.

But right now I’m having trouble getting their web cart system to work...

This is good to read. I have been wondering about the Del-Ton barrels. Been thinking about getting a couple of them, but have always been worried about performance. From what I read here, it appears that they perform rather well.

I’m hoping that these are the HBAR-compliant answer for those of us who may (for whatever reason) want to build a budget AR15 but can’t take advantage of the ridiculously low prices coming out of PSA these days.

I stand corrected that's the first time I have seen them allow choice. Trying not to buy the dissapator. I put a couple Delton rigs together last week.

Finally managed to place an order.

Their cart system was very frustrating. It let me put in separate billing and shipping addresses, but then not ship to a shipping address other than my billing address, which it wouldn’t let me change! Had to manually re-enter everything.

Website says the mid-length HBAR upper I ordered is “In Stock”, but also “Usually Ships in 3 Weeks“

We’ll see when it gets here!

The Dissy was sold out when I got to it. Next time. Delton always does this with their specials accumulate orders and build. That's just part of it.
