I did want the slightly heavier barrel. I was able to price a complete upper from parts with what I wanted for about $350. I don't think thats to bad for now.
For the future I will have to shop sales for better deals. As far as humping it I'm partial to AK's.
Once again j4 comes thru with the straight dope. He knows his shit and is my go-to guy for AR questions. He lives around here somewhere close to me but I have never had the pleasure of meeting him face to face. That I know of.

JSE was fast shipping and the Del-ton barrel is very nice quality. What's the shipping turn around for PSA, it's been a while?
I was beginning to wonder about that. I placed my first order for the receiver about a week and a half ago and it still says "processing" on my order status. I figure the're probably a bit understaffed right now since they have some of their people over at the SHOT show. I've got about a little over a grand worth of AR parts currently just "pending" with them right now. For the prices they're offering I suppose it's worth the wait.
people have been asking how quick PSA ships == from my experience the longest it took was a little over two weeks --about a week has been the norm.
PSA is usually swamped with orders.
JSE is super quick --sort of like new egg in the shipping dept-- even they got a week or two behind during the panic.
i don't mind a wait , i've had to deal with 'the factory" type set up before so a few weeks ain't much of a wait if i getting a good price.
i think DSA is about the slowest -- i'm thinking of ordering a few barrels from them--just in case 4th goes crazy with the bump-fire and melts a few--LOL!
My first order from them was as a guest. There was no email confirmation of my purchase so I have no idea if the order was correct.
I sent an email asking if everything was OK but they never responded. That was a week ago. Some type of confirmation would be nice.
After hearing from y'all I figure they have a good reputation so I'm not going to worry for now. Do they give tracking numbers?
last time i got tracking numbers from PSA the UPS truck was about to arrive-- i never bought anything as a guest so i don't know what they do about tracking in that case--
there is an old joke about PSAs shipping --something about a one eyed drunk guy that only works when he needs money-or if its not deer season--LOL
give them two weeks at least--they may be swamped again--
