    Bought a Del-ton 15

    I bought it about a week ago. Shoots like a dream Cost me $768 + tax (Marine Exchange). I bought the last one they had. Have a nice scope and a red dot. Now for a question, what is better and free float or a non free float? I do not have a lot of money but if you could link a few with recommendations I would appreciate it. Thanks. This site has been wonderful to me. Thank you

    A free-floated barrel just means that the handguard only attaches at the barrel nut and does not contact the barrel at any point beyond that. If you're building your rifle for match accuracy, a free-float barrel is a good idea. If not, it's essentially just personal preference.

    I'm partial to Yankee Hill Machine hardware. They make good stuff for a reasonable price.

    Is this hard to understand? Then why does it get unintelligible to some people when 5 little words are changed?

    I have a free float forearm on my AR's - I happen to like the size, price and durability of YHM forearms. They get a lot of grief for not being milspec (which I do not use here in a derrogatory tone). Since I only put my forward sling point on my forearm and I don't take sights or other equipment on or off that needs a precision mount, I went YHM. Even if you were putting sights or other gear on your forearm, YHM would be fine as long as you weren't in need of taking it on and off without the possibility of re sighting it in. Another concern re: YHM is that a one piece forearm means taking the FSB off to gain unimpeded access under the forearm (say, for a barrel change or deep clean after a mud bath).

    If anyone's wondering about my deleted 2nd post, it was a double tap from my BBerry.

    That's true. Or if you build the rifle with a railed or low profile gas block, you can just slide the handguard over it to get it off.

    They sell weapons at the exchange??? I'm assuming you mean the Marine Corps Exchange? Damn, we don't get that stuff in the Coast Guard Exchange!

    The marine exchange just outside Norfolk sells firearms and also has a 25 yd rifle range nearby.
