Built this for $420 including the Anderson lower receiver and transfer. Most of the parts are ATI from Sportsman's guide. I swapped the grip out for a Palmetto that I had in my scrap box but there really wasn't anything wrong with the one that came with it. The magazine seems a little sketchy but time will tell. Hopefully I will get it to the range sometime tomorrow.

The trigger seems to be excellent but, again, time will tell. I really like the Rogers Super-Stoc that came with it.

Anyone else have a Roger SuperStoc? I had never heard of them before I opened the kit.
The reviews on Midway seem to be very favorable.

Correction!
Bad math on my part. It was just under $420.

Sorry!

Rogers SuperStoc is my personal preference. The cam lock feature keeps ALL the slop out. Always very durable and dependable.
I own several of these. When I find a good deal, I'll always scoop it up.
FIVE STARS!

I noticed CDNN has that Del-Ton for $399, no idea on quality other than "you get what you pay for"!

I'm thinking of moving it to a better build. I really like it so far.

A buddy of mine has built with Del-Ton uppers and really likes them, when I had the chance to shoot them they did well for me.

For that price, as long as it functions well over time and shoots accurately that's all that matters. 500 rounds or so through it will give you a good idea. Outstanding accomplishment for the price.

I will first shoot it like it is, just to see if everything works. Then I might start swapping more parts. I have a drawer full of odds and ends that I have picked up over they years.

I built something similar. Anderson lower and psa upper. This was a little while back. And prices were a little higher then. Going with an already complete upper from psa actually saved me about $100 or so on the build.

Anderson lower, anderson LPK, Psa Ptac 16' carbine length complete upper w/bcg and charging handle, Complete buffer tube assembly from delta team tactical and an old tapco stock I've had sitting around for years, and some budget buis off amazon. Came out to like $420-$430ish.

I've since added a new grip, hand guard and buis.

I bought a Del-Ton as my first AR. 7 years of regular shooting and have never had any problems with it. I had a couple failures to feed but after trouble shooting it turned out to be the mag i was using. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase another del-ton if i was in the market for another AR

Sarge, Im looking forward to your range review. I got into building ARs @ the wrong time. I built 2 during Sept. last year. Prices for everything were soaring just before the elections. In fact, it was the threat of Hilliary that got me off my azz and motivated me to start building. So if cheap frankenbuilds work, now is the time to build them. Remember, $420 ARs turn into $840 ARs right before the next election. Do this before Chelsea gets into office!

Here's what a store-bought SMITH AND WESSON M&P 15 SPORT II $429.99 AR-15 looks like.

Looks pretty good to me.

$365 AR pistol (10.5") build. Just finished and it works. It includes kit, stripped lower, Transfer fee, and shipping. Only issue was I had to sand some burrs off in the chamber.

Does to me too but. but I didn't want an A2 gas block. I wanted a flat top. The Roger SuperStoc was a real plus also. I also wanted a 1/7 twist not a 1/9.
