Del-Ton Echo 316 review

Del-Ton Inc. sent me their Echo 316 MOE OD carbine for a review. It's the first time I have had a chance to shoot one of their AR-15s. I was surprised with its accuracy. It is solidly built, accurate and reliable. What more could I ask for.

I've used DeTon M-4gery uppers to assemble several carbines and have found all to be excellent shooters w/o any quirks or malfunctions. Anytime you get 16" carbines(multiple specimens) to produce 3/4" groups @ 100 yards with generic factory ammo you've got a winner brand.

I'm very pleased with it. Del-Ton seems to make a quality rifle.

It came with a hard plastic case. The nylon case pictured is mine and it's from VOODOO Tactical.

I have a Del-Ton echo 316 And its one of my favorite ARs I own . I also used a Del-Ton rifle kit to help build another one . They both work great . Both are heavy barreled but one has a 1-7 chrome lined barrel the other is 1-9 and not chrome lined .

The complete rifle came with a FCG problem . On slow trigger release the gun would burp out 4 round burst . I sent it back and they replaced the disconnect and hammer . I have just under 1k rounds through them both with really no problems other then the FCG issue the was taken care of very fast .

Del-Ton's CS was great and I could not be happier with there products .

EDIT: that was a good review and that gun is the same one I have but mines the MOE dark earth
.
