I can't seem to find a whole lot about them, but is Del-Ton a reliable company? I'd rather not get gipped out of a good chunk of cash.

Good cheap stuff, go for it.

its ok gear. nothing unsafe about it. You may need to swap out some parts earlier then others. Nothing to get worried about.

I would say Stag at a minimum...good quality for the money. The lower is not as important as the upper. The upper does all the work
Delton is good. Haven't heard many complaints other than from the "only Colt/Noveske/LMT will ever work in an emergency" crowd. Sure, the quality won't be as nice, but it'll be safe. Won't blow up on you or anything

I recently purchased a Del-Ton complete upper (which is called a "Barrel Assembly" on their website) and I went with the "Custom 16-Inch Midlength Barrel Assembly". I ordered it a month ago and it should be shipping soon, so if I don't have it soon, it should be here in the next few weeks. I'll give a range report and some pics when I get it and shoot it.
I bought it for the price point, I'm paying $535 + shipping. My upper consisted of the Yankee Hill Machine Free Float Quad-Rail in midlength, 16-inch Midlength Lightweight Chrome Lined 1x9 Barrel, F-Marked FSB, A2 Flash Hider, Standard M4 Feed Ramps, and Standard BCG. I'm slapping this complete upper (with the Daniel Defense A1.5 Rear Sight mounted) on to a Foliage "dressed" lower (Foliage CTR, Enhanced Recoil Pad for CTR, Foliage MIAD, and I have some Tango Down Foliage Rail Covers for the Quad-Rail up front when it arrives) and I'm pretty excited.
I also own the completely Mil-Spec M4 (16-inch of course though) from Spikes Tactical. I love it, I added a bunch of Magpul furniture and an Aimpoint Micro-Dot and it's super light and fast. I also own a heavy barrel match grade Olympic Arms target rifle with a 3-12x (30mm) scope on it.
