    I don't read much bad about them, but they're "lower tier" ARs.

    I have no experience with them personally but I have a couple of friends who recently bought del ton's and they have no complaints about them. When I ordered mine recently, it was between del ton and PSA.

    I've never owned one of their factory rifles, but I've used their lowers and other parts. Better than PSA garbage IMO.

    An AR is just the sum of it's parts, if you know how to work on one, who cares who put it together. Go through it and make sure it's right.

    Had one and didn't have a bit of trouble out of it. It was all metal one. Not sure on the poly ones. Some people bash things because of the brand that it is and have no real world experience with them..just repeat what they hear. . For the price of them and what they are for I say go for it.

    I've had a few, and still have one. Never had a problem with any of them. Better than PSA lower end stuff IMO.

    Have had their top of the line Evolution for about 5 years now. I use it for agency demos. Zero failures and it is a half minute gun when I mount a full a scope on it for round testing. There are three other blogs/mags that have had the same or better accuracy testing results that I do. Its been ran very hard with multiple mag-dump sessions back to back and no oil. The barrel is now brown. And it shoots very well. The only mod is a CMC drop in trigger. It is my tool gun and I wouldn't think twice about using another one as such.
