interesting
Link Posted: 6/22/2017 12:31:15 AM EST
So now the question becomes can I build one for that price and quality or can I spend a hundred or two more either build myself or purchase and have a lot better rifle? I could probably build a very bare bones range toy for that price that might be a few MOA at 100 yards or spend a little more that will get me close to that MOA at 100 yards.

Good lord, just how low can the prices continue to drop.

I'd love to find a 20" A2 rifle for that price.

Im waiting to pounce on a AR10 very soon,prices are in super salad day mode

Shit, my pistol brace cost more than that whole rifle

Tempting I've been thinking about a pencil barrel for my boy.

Well...

HELLS, YEH!!!!

Yawn. Give me a midlength, chrome lined barrel for that price, and I will say fo.

Meh....I'll pass. I believe in the old adage that you get what you pay for.

You do know that MOA is irrespective of distance, yes?

I don't have an issue with melonite in fact it has several advantages over chrome including lower cost. 

My thing would be who is delton?

Salad days for sure.
Link Posted: 6/22/2017 5:21:26 AM EST
I'd rather have a CL for 450.

That's what they need to be selling....
Link Posted: 6/22/2017 5:23:51 AM EST
Hmmm

So what is the better value?

This DelTon or the Ruger AR for $50 more?

I'd probably go with ruger because if you do have an issue ruger will definitely help you out, great CS. Delton? I don't know. 
Link Posted: 6/22/2017 5:54:10 AM EST
Good deal, but I'd rather save up for a KAC or LMT AR. Same for pistols; those shields for $225 are tempting, but I'd rather save for a CZ shadow or USP expert.
Link Posted: 6/22/2017 6:32:04 AM EST
What's not to like? A pencil-barreled carbine that'll do what 99% of what anyone would ever need in an AR for $400.00 shipped?
That's half the price of a Colt 6720.

I made my A2 20" for about $439. I wanted it to look as bone stock as could be. DTI lower, & 20" upper, DTI parts kit, etc.
It can be done quite easily. Shoots really nice too.

We are getting to the point that a case of ammo costs more than a S&W shield and a case of ammo costs more than an AR

Long time sponsor of ARFCOM. I have some Del-Ton parts and they have performed well. I would not hesitate to buy one if I didn't live in NY. Seems like AR-15's are becoming the Mosin Nagants of the semi automatic rifle world.

Maybe it will get to the same concept as buying razor blades and they give you a free handle. 

Buy a case of ammo and they'll toss in a free AR.

They're dumping them to make room for a gen 2 model iirc
Link Posted: 6/22/2017 7:27:37 AM EST
I'd imagine it's a situation where S&W has paid for the machining several times over already, and they're literally just paying for materials and labor.

Medicfrost, thanks for the link and damn you!

Del-Ton has a good rep and, as stated above, there's a lifetime guarantee for the product but, man, Ruger has done so well by gunowners after their founder croaked, I'd really like to support them.

Link Posted: 6/22/2017 7:57:45 AM EST
DelTon makes a good product, I'd say they're at least even with Palmetto State Armory. They've got a lifetime warranty and a lot of the police departments around here are switching to them because they're a local business.

$399 complete upper and LPK

If you've already got a lower laying around you're ready to go, or you can wait a two weeks for the 4th of July sales, I'm betting on $19.99 stripped lowers this year!

Del-Ton is GTG, industry partners here.

I agree, DelTon is ok IMHO.

I bought one for a young guy and his wife about 10 years ago who were having a tough time financially. (Hard working nice people with a couple of babies.)

They still have it as their house gun and it still chugs along like it always has.

I paid more than $399 back then but it was still a pretty good deal............I can't remember the amount though.

He likes the DelTon and it has been about 10 years.
Link Posted: 6/22/2017 8:30:13 AM EST
It's actually $410.97 unless you plan to pay in cash.

PSA has better deals.

I built a ML nitride with Magpul furniture for $450 total.

Never had a problem with DelTon.

I have an Armalite AR10B with a 16" barrel. I really like it, but the cheapest I have been able to find 20rd mags is $27. I have 10. I think my next rifle will be an Armalite AR10A with a 20".

I put together a Del-Ton 20" A2 for around $550 a couple of years ago. Chrome lined barrel. Very solid shooter, the barrel can outshoot me. I used an old A2 upper I got off the EE and used the flat top on another build. I had Del-Ton install a non "F" marked FSP. They were very attentive to a perceived error on my order when I chose that FSP. They emailed me to confirm my choice.

PSA PA10 at $600

Not sure about the quality, but a starter platform ready to hit the range in .308 for $600 is pretty damn tempting.

If I didn't have 2 Armalites in the safe I'd be all over it

PSA had 20" uppers on sale for $199 recently, I think that gets you close.
Link Posted: 6/22/2017 9:18:10 AM EST
If I didn't have a bunch of parts laying around to finish builds on I wouldn't hesitate to jump on this. I've got a DelTon upper and no name BCG that has been accurate out to 200 yds for me.

You just dated yourself. They used to be the go to for cheap yet reliable rifles and rifle kits 8-12 years ago but sort of faded away when everyone started churning out ARs. Sort of the PSA of the time. They have a pretty solid reputation.
