    What is the general quality of this rifle for reliability?, do any AR shooters have any input? Its in the M4 configuration and sold thru Atlantic Firearms which I believe is a wholesaler. I,m used to what the army uses as I,m still in the service but am thinking on a civilian model for my own use. Just need to know about the quality, is that a less then reliable brand or not. Not into all the bells and whistles you can attach, just a good shooter I can depend on.

    I have an ar mid length rifle that I built with a del-ton kit. Runs great and looks good too. Aim surplus also sells del-ton rifles. They sell the same rifle you were looking at for $120 less minus the carry handle. http://www.aimsurplus.com/acatalog/Del-Ton_DTI-15_5.56_Carbine.html You could also buy a lower receiver and a kit and just put it together. You can order the kits directly from del-ton and they are pretty easy to assemble. Mark

    I have a 20" upper that has not failed yet with anything I put through it. Great company to deal with.

    I bought one last week. I looked it over pretty good before I shot it. Ran 80 rounds through it with no problems at all. Ready to shoot some more. I like the easy load mags that come with it. Give it a shot.

    Thanks for the input, I,ll have to look into Delton abit more now and check AIM on their deals, I,ve bought C&R from them before and they are a good company to deal with. I have a case of 100 30 round mags stashed away for just the purpose of someday getting an AR type rifle.

    Del-Ton are good people. I see them at every Raleigh gun show and have bought lots of things from them. They've always been great.

    you can buy an upper/parts kit. when filling it out, you can add a few customizations, such as detachable carry handle for flat-top models, different triggers, chargers, barrels and front grip/tubes, etc. The first thing on the list is the barrel type, which you can upgrade to chromed for about 50 bucks.

    edit: Bed beat me to it
