Good Evening to you all,

I'm in the process of looking for another new AR upper in a "Dissapator" version for variety sake. Because I'm on a budget I've seen a version made by Del-Ton but know nothing about the company. It appears to be a nice upper but I wish I could get a chrome bore and chamber with it. Have any of you guys had any experience with these rifles????

Del-ton makes a high quality "budget" product. I put them above DPMS in quality, but below Stag and Rock River.

Even lesser quality than DPMS.

Honestly, I have no experience with them.

From a quick reading of their website:

4150 steel, very nice.
Not chrome lined, I prefer chromed for barrel life. But the tradeoff is theoretically better accuracy so it's a personal preference thing.

Their specs sound decent on the barrel at least, but nothing about their Bolts, which is one of the most critical parts.

Check out Palette State's dissipator on their website. $429.99 is a great deal.

The Dissipator is perfect for me, it has a 16" barrel for quicker handling and the rifle length sight radius is perfect for people with corrective lenses or aging eyes or anyone that seeks a more clear sight picture for accurate iron sight shooting.

I like Del-Ton allot, I've purchased several and all of them run flawless, never a hic-cup. However the drawback to Del-Ton's Dissipator is the barrel is not chrome lined and the gas system is rifle length, from what I have heard a mid-length gas system would be optimum for that type of AR-15 for better system reliability.

I would exercise a little more patience, save your money and buy a CMMG 16 inch M10M Upper, check this out...http://cmmginc.secure-mall.com/item/CMMG-16-inch-M10M-Upper-978

Nice upper, but CMMG offers an upper with a mid-length gas system for better system reliability, less harshness in shooting and function, and best of all CMMG barrels are mil-spec 11595E steel and the rest is what you would like in terms of a mil-spec upper. You have to pay more, about $200 but I think its worth it.

Hello to everyone,

Thank you for your imputs regarding my interest in a "Dissapator" upper. I currently figure I might go to the big show towards the end of the year and get one from there but what dealers will be present I don't know. If Delton is there then I'll have a look in there or any others to that matter. I much prefer a chrome bore/chamber but might consider a conventional as long as the chamber will accept the nato round for strength reasons. Thanks to you all I now know more about my needs.

A chromed bore and chamber is a reliability/longevity upgrade (at the cost of a slight accuracy hit) and has nothing to do with what ammo will work.

If you have a 5.56 chamber, you can fire 5.56 and .223. If you have a .223 chamber you can fire .223 and MAYBE 5.56.

CHS,

I'll take note of your reply when it's time toget my upper. I need to wait until the next big show happens towards the end of the year anyways.
