    DTI Ar-15

    Currently in the market for a rifle. Found one for 750.00. It's a DTI AR-15. Anyone have experience with these rifles? Seems like a great deal, but I haven't had any experience with this brand. Any input would be appreciated.

    I can't speak for their completed rifles, but Del-Ton is a fairly small business with top-notch service.

    I ordered a couple of their built lowers a few months back, just to have on hand, and they are every bit as well-made and my DPMS. I would expect their uppers and barrels to be of similar quality.

    I want a rifle with good craftmanship, be dependable and be easy to maintain. And it needs to be affordable. I thought about an AK-47, but was told by more than one person that they were less than accurate over 50 yards. I have very little experience with this type of rifle so I don't know.

    PM in-bound, then. What I sent you pertains only to ARs, because my experience with AKs is limited to a few rounds downrange and a spent casing down my shirt.

    I bought a DTI complete upper and It is rock solid. No issues at all with a couple thousand rounds through it.
    Outstanding customer service!

    Does anyone have a link for DTI?

    I was looking at a DelTon and they do get good reviews--or at least never a negative review. I was REALLY thinking about getting one but for about $200 more I can get a chrome lined barrel/bore complete Stag rifle. THEN i think to myself how much I really NEED (or afford) a new rifle and im still on the fence.

    God, the amount of BS you get to hear from those who hate AKs. Next time somebody says that, politely ask them if they would sit at 75 yards and let some AK owner shoot at them.
    You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.

    Lol! I wouldn't take that bet.

    For what it's worth, I prefer my AR over my AK, but it's because the AR fits me better ergonomically, not because of any accuracy difference - both shoot better than I do, and will nail a 100yd plate all day.

    I have a 7.62x39 upper for my AR 15 and they are more accurate than the AK's I have deer hunted with it.The only thing different from a standard AR15 is the barrel ,the bolt in the bolt carrier group ,and the magazine.

    LOL - good bit, Miggy. Knowing how much everyone on this board shoots, though, I wouldn't sit still for a slingshot at 75 yards.
