I have had zero problems with mine in casual shooting. It is accurate and I've not yet had a malf of any kind. I'm not surprised your son's was accurate, mine is very accurate. But alas, it doesn't get the M4 Carbine "Operator" stamp of approval and that doesn't matter to me as I'm not an "Operator" and hope never to have to pretend to be one.
I do not agree that Del-Ton is in the same league as Oly, DPMS etc...I think Del-ton is a step above those a bit behind Colt perhaps depending on whether you get a decent Colt or not.
Edit: I just saw the other thread and asked for a source for all of these Del-Ton problems. I've not seen or heard of that many folks who are unsatisfied with their Del-Ton rifles.
