    Del-ton AR-15 Kits

    Just curios if anyone had any experience with their kits. I have only, tonight, even heard of them and was sung praises about the quality of the kits.
    M4 Rifle Kits, AR 15 Kits, Gun Kits | Del Ton Rifles from Del-Ton, Inc.

    They come with everything including the guts for a lower but you have to order the stripped lower separately. so about 465 for the kit and about 120 for the lower. I did not check shipping since I can drive to the location and pick it up.

    Any input from owners are people that have used the Del-ton kit would be appreciated.

    Shop around you can get a decent lower receiver for around 70.00,I have assembled several Delton kits and they all run fine.I did order a kit about 4 months ago and they apparently backordered it due to a shortage of 16" 1x9 barrels,My order still hasn't been filled and even if they tried the card I used is no longer valid.their loss

    Thanks dukalmighty shopping around is where I am at right now. I am in no hurry to purchase since I really have no need for anything above a bolt action and the wife does not believe the zombie apocalypse is coming anytime soon.

    I have used several for builds for a local PD and I have no complaints on quality.....

    But. The last time I ordered the site said 1 to 2 weeks. Then I called after two weeks and was told they were running 3 to 4 weeks. I went back to the site for some info and it then said 6 to 8 weeks. Emails went unanswerd and I ended up giving up one of my personal ARs to the customer who was waiting on his 2 week build. I got the gun in the mail at 7 weeks and 6 days.

    I have asked around here as well and found that like Duk and Super have stated seems to be the norm. Good quality but don't be in a hurry seems manufacturing times are slow and you may be waiting for a bit.

    I checked my LGS seems that ATI actually sells the Del-ton kits assembled at a marked up price point over the kits.

    Where ya $70 buck lowers? I recall seeing some cheapies needing machine work still for this price.

    Been thinking about building an AR up rather then a turnkey, I could do this as budget allows.
