Default Del-Ton AR-15 Sport 2 and Hello...



Advertise Here

Hello,
I just today purchased a Del-Ton AR-15 Sport Mod 2 and was wondering if anyone was familiar with the rifle and what they could tell me about it. I am also new to the site. Thanks!

I had the Gen 1 Delton Sport, it was fine, but I got a chance to trade it for a G20 and a large pile of JHP, and I had gotten it cheap enough that I was winning on the deal, so itís gone.

Delton is good stuff, donít let the brand snobs get to you.

I've never had a Del-ton but from what I remember, they've been around longer than almost any other AR15 manufacturer except for a few, so that must mean something!

They were one of the half dozen options when I was building my first AR back around 2006 or so. Back then there was Colt (except you couldn't find any to buy, I'm not even sure if they were selling to civilians), Bushmaster (which is not the same Bushmaster as now), Stag, DPMS and Model 1. I honestly don't remember anyone else although I'm sure some existed.

Welcome, I have a Del-ton upper on a S&W lower and it's been a reliable shooter.

We sell two entry level Del-Ton AR-15 models at a shop where I work: one with a basic rail, and the other with the round handguards, for $499 each. We well tons of them and haven't had a single complaint in the 18 months since we started selling them.

They may not be a "fancy" brand, but I think they're a great value for the money, and very affordable.

On the other hand I've seen entry level Olympic, Anderson, PSA and DPMS rifles which people bought elsewhere and later brought in to us to see if we could get them working properly for them, since they wouldn't function properly for the customer.
