Does anyone know if either of these has a 5.56 chamber? Thanks, Jdman

Ask them. They will know.

I'm pretty sure del-ton said that their kits are always 5.56 unless specified otherwise. I'm pretty sure J&T is the same.

I had the same question before purchasing the Del-ton DT1009 (pre-ban flat top M4). I sent their customer service an email and they replied stating that it is chambered for 5.56mm. I haven't received the assembly yet. I should this week and will let you know if there's paperwork with it. But I have their email response.

As the other gent suggested, I'd get your own confirmation for your specific model. That way you have something from them in writing.

I have two J&T kits, and one barrel. All are 5.56. I am sure their bull target barrels are .223. This is typical of most all suppliers.

I can tell you that the J&T kits and the upper I built with a pencil barrel from them work flawlessly... NO malfunctions ever.

Delton has a good reputation, but I cannot comment as I have not purchased from them.

Thanks again for all the replies. I decided to go with Del-ton. I ordered over the phone this afternoon and I was told by Tony it should be here later this week. 16" m-4 kit with flat top upper. This will be my first AR. Can't wait to get it together and try it out. Jdman

Some Del-ton uppers have Wilson barrels that are stamped .223. BUT... A call to Wilson will quickly assure you that these barrels are in fact 5.56

In any event, feel free to call Tony at Del-Ton, I've never had a problem asking him questions about what he sells as he is a fountain of knowlege about pretty much everything he sells.
