I've newly been looking around the internet and been fairly interested in the ARs that Del-Ton carries. They seem favor top quality entry-level rifles and I simply want to make certain I am buying a top quality rifle.

You are watching: Del ton echo 316 vs m&p 15 sport

I am looking at the Del-Ton ECHO 316 MOE/OD. Ive checked out pretty excellent reviews around the company's quality for the price, and I figured I would certainly come to you folks.

Any responses would certainly be substantially appreciated. This will be my first AR15, and via the numerous various service providers, I desire to make sure that I gain a great quality rifle.

Thanks males and gals!

Del-Ton is to ARs as CTD is to ethical company methods.

Don't listen to the hive mind. Del-ton is as great as palmetto state. They're low finish entry level ar 15s. The one you obtain will be as good as the perboy who assembled it. The worst AR I've ever before owned was a rock river.

I would (and also have) go with Palmetto State Armory (particularly their 'premium' parts/rifles) over Del-Ton. Similarly priced, much better high quality.

Perhaps I should have actually stated this in the write-up, however I am not yet looking to go with parts as I don't feel comfortable via that yet. But I will keep that in mind, doesn't seem as well poor priced for the top quality.

Nice male. Yeah, I saw that one yet chose against it as I favor the OD Environment-friendly. Price would be a tiny more, through dealer fees and shipping.

Thanks for responding!

No, I would certainly go for Sierra, I think the just difference is that Sierra is Mid Length rather of Carbine gas device.

I have 4 Del-ton's in my circle of friends. Ours are the chrome lined hefty barrel 16", and also we constructed them from kits. (the upper is entirely assembled, you simply construct the lower). Kit was about $515 shipped and we ordered directly from Del-ton. I ordered 2, put them together, obtained 2" groups my initially time shooting 100 yards with PMC brass 5.56. I'm certain the rifle shoots better, I'm still working on my skillset :). That is excellent enough for me. 2 different friends ordered the very same kit and theirs have ran excellent also.

I'm extremely satisfied with the fit and also finish on every one of the rifles.

If you deserve to handle structure one (I recommend $50 in tools...grace roll pin collection and also a roll pin starter punch set), I recommend the rifle kit that I have actually. It is the a lot of expensive kit they have at roughly $520. I phelp $450 in july plus shipping and my friends passist $490 + shipping in december. It is much better components (chrome lined barrel), and everybody reareas the stock handguards anyway. (I recommfinish B5 sopmod stock $60 and magpul MOE handguard ($35)) Although B5 is coming out via keymod handguards in the following couple months and also I am anxious to attempt among those out! They are a lot thinner diameter, practically choose the expensive floated rails.

I will note that I have one Del-ton but several Palmetto uppers/rifles. The just reason for that is that Palmetto comes up via rather a selection of upper configurations. Like pencil barrel, a2 barrel, and so on Del-ton's customer organization is much much better, and also you deserve to actually get ahold of on the phone or an e-mail reply from Del-ton in a reasonable timestructure.

Something you may also inspect out if you are in the budget for a 'cheap lite' AR-15 is the Del-ton sport. It is totally assembled and is routinely on sale for under $600 shipped. You can include your very own stock and also handguard easily. The chrome lined kit is still a better worth however is heavier. around 6.8 lbs vs 5.8 lbs.
