Found a Delton AR in 5.56 for what I feel is a decent deal. Anyone own one of these? Quality looks real good for the price.

I have a friend with whom I am in regular contact who has shot about 1,000 rounds through one - he is very satisfied. I have seen plenty of positive and no negative posts on their rifles - built buys or kits.

I own several of them. One of the best ARs you can buy at a bargain price.

I had one and it ran like a top. Not bad at all for the price.

Just finished a build using one of their parts kit and a Spikes lower. Got another kit coming soon to build the wife a range gun.

Thanks for the replies. I found a new one for $650 out the door. Think I may grab it.

$650 is a good price if it shoots well. I'm looking at around $1,000 to put together a BCM or LMT carbine...right now the $350 savings would go a long ways towards ammo and sights.

So, please let us know how it runs if you pick one up?

I am hoping to get it next week. Then I will give a range report.

I used to have a mid-length upper slapped on Rogio Arsenal lower. Nica and accurate carbine but someone made me an offer I cannot refuse. That was when Del-ton have a 12-week back order warning on their website. I doubled the price of the rifle so he would stop pestering me but he bite on it. I told him he can build his own for half the price if he will only be patient but he won't hear of it.

I have a lite A2 that's never failed me.I built it on a Cheap Superior lower.
It eats all brass and steel ammo.
It's now hiding with an AK and ammo,waiting to come out if things REALLY hit the fan.
If you buy it keep it for a back-up for your back-up.

Actually, you can put yourself together a BCM Middy for a little over $760 (+ shipping). I just looked it up real quick. You can also find lowers a little cheaper than that, but that's just my preference. Then just add sights of your preference.


BCM Middy Complete Upper (BCG & CH) $570
AR-15 Aero Precision Lower Receiver Complete with 6 Position Stock $ 190
___
Total $760

You can also find stripped lowers a little cheaper than that, but that's just my preference. You can also find LPK's cheaper if you look. Then just add sights of your preference.

of course...isn't yours?

Oops! Recalculate

The only point I was trying to make is you can get a better weapon for not that much more. But obviously, the choice is yours.
