I am looking at the Del-Ton site someone posted here in the past and i was wondering,
In the rifle kit what comes in it?
I know you dont get the stripped lower assembly, so is all your getting the stock, grips, barrel and parts?

EDIT: if i do decide to get a kit where can i find out how to assemle it?

Don't know about the sirte you were on, but the kits I have look into are missing only the stripped lower.
All other parts should be there

I haven't orderd from them, but their site seems to detail what it comes with pretty completely:
http://www.del-ton.com/detail.aspx?ID=1104

M4 16" Rifle Kit includes the following as standard:
16" Wilson Arms 5.56 Nato 1x9 twist, chrome molly barrel
Standard flat top upper
AR-15 bolt and carrier assembly
Standard charging handle
A2 flash hider
AR-15 lower parts kit
M4 6 position buttstock
CAR handguards
Standard gas tube

Upper assembly comes completely head spaced and test fired. Rifle kit includes everything to make a complete rifle, except for the stripped lower receiver.

There's your answer. I'm not sure what else you would need to know about what it comes with.

As far as instructions on how to put it together, there are some kinds on AR-15.com.

I have built a Del-Ton 16" Rifle Kit (http://www.del-ton.com/detail.aspx?ID=1105). You get everything except a stripped lower. The upper half comes completely assembled.

I followed the Lower Receiver Assembly (http://www.ar15.com/content/guides/assembly/lower) instructions at ar15.com. The lower went together in an evening. Next time I will buy the "Pivot Pin Installation Tool" mentioned in the instructions.

The "AR-15 lower parts kit" includes a trigger.

Along with the kit, you need to buy a stripped lower:

Then you install the parts Del-Ton provides you, following the instructions I pointed you to earlier.

After you get your parts, go to ar15.com and you can find the technical instructions to assemble your rifle.

I just built my new AR yesterday using a del ton kit. It was not too tough to put together, and the upper is already complete. I had NO experience with the AR prior to building this. Shipping was quick too. I recommend you use a vice grip, and punch, as well as some moly grease. Good luck!
