they never respond to email, try phone
I ordered a lower parts kit on the 14th of dec. I emailed them 3 times about the order which according to the site is still being processed. Anyone else order from these folks and not got a response? Fortunately Im not in any rush, I sort of wished I would have ordered a upper at the same time so I can finish the rifle sometime this year. jim
I called 2 weeks ago. Was told they were shipping the late nov. early dec. orders, Just got my 2 AR mags today. I was told the lower parts kit could take up to a year! jim
i think their about 12-18 weeks behind and that is not counting some stuff being on longer back order.
some places are 9-24 months BO though.
I ordered a DTI AR15 stripped lower receiver from JSE Surplus on 4-17-09. It was in to the FFL in 3 business days. I have not built it yet but it looks perfect.
i also bought a DPMS lower and got it in a couple days. they are very quick and somehow manage to come up with the out of stock stuff with regularity.
I went through Elizabethtown twice last week and thought about stopping at Delton, guess I should have. Picked up my last two uppers from them, no shipping.
I come in peace, I didn't bring artillery. But I am pleading with you with tears in my eyes: If you fuck with me, I'll kill you all.

Del-Ton people are pretty cool. The wait is horrible, but that's because they sell pretty good components at rock bottom prices. Not that mil-spec parts differ that much anyway. I cancelled my order to mid-length from them in December. Lady I dealt with on the phone was very nice and did tell me that if I change my mind, I can drive down to the office to pick up the set. They responded to my email, but it took about a month. Very nice people but their phones are ringing 10hrs per day. Only the lucky ones get through. I recently built 2 kits, my # 5 and 6 total. All of the dealers seems to be in very similar situation. Good luck.
Me drowning on and on forgot to mention that I dealt with Del-Ton without any delay or problems before the election at all. This was when people were telling me that Del-Ton carried sub standard stuff. Upper I bought arrived within a week. Pair of bolts arrived in 3 days. That was more than a year ago before you know who got into the office.
