5 of 5 Couldn't be happier June 1, 2022
Reviewer: Lee Walker  
One absolutely great rifle. It has never jammed. I've run probably 500 rounds through it. Comfortable, shooter friendly feel. Best of all MADE IN AMERICA! Keep up the great builds. This won't be my only DEL-TON very soon.

5 of 5 Fantastic Rifle May 13, 2022
Reviewer: Josh K from Texas, United States  
I bought this about 5 years ago for $451 and am extremely happy with it. Definitely one of the best AR-15s you can get for the money. So far, I’ve fired 1900 rounds, and I haven’t had a single malfunction. Shoots accurately, though I haven’t shot it past 50 yards.  It came with no issues, no scratches or function problems, etc. If you are looking for an AR15 under $750, BUY THIS RIFLE.  Most places online sell this model for between $500-$700… This model, the 316M, is the best in my opinion out of the DTI Echo line-up, as it comes with a 1-8 twist, (which is great for almost all bullet weights), comes with a great rear flip up iron sight, and has the medium barrel profile, so it’s not a pencil barrel, and it’s also not super heavy.  All around great rifle, I’ll definitely be giving Del-Ton a look next time I buy another AR-15.

5 of 5 Echo 316M - Great Build! July 6, 2020
Reviewer: Brandon McHenry from Missoula, MT United States  
I purchased a 316M locally, with a 4 rail hand guard added, for under $700. I have taken it out to shoot 3 times now 120 rounds per session and I have to say I am extremely impressed with this rifle. It's been solid so for although I have only user AE M855 equivalent ammo to this point. It's been as accurate as I could ask from an open sited carbine. From 50 yards averaging a 1.5" group over 10 rounds medium fire (1 round every 1-2 seconds).

I am STRONGLY considering another Del Ton rifle, either another 316M or perhaps a 7.62 model.

Thanks for making a great, solid, and affordable product!

4 of 5 Great rifle great build but... May 13, 2016
Reviewer: Nickolai Melnykov from Atlanta, GA United States  
Great rifle LOVE IT. Very accurate!! Writing review to let you guys know that the Mil-Spec butt-stock that comes with it is kinda garbage. Very loose. I tightened it a bit which reduced the amount of play by a very small amount but the issue I was having is with every shot fired the the stock would slide forward one notch forward.I tried to adjust it to no avail and had a buddy of mine a gun smith take a look at it he said it was as tight as it goes. Bought me a magpul - 0 problems ever since. I may just have had a defective stock from the factory. It happens.

Reviewer: C.Henry from Burlington, VT United States  
I had been looking at ar15's for a while and was totally amazed on makes, models ,prices along with all the hype !!

Then I found this rifle Echo316M , it had everything I was looking for and being all most 100% Mil-Spec. so I could not pass on the price so I bought it, oh ya lifetime warranty also.
My first outing,I shot only sixty rounds of 5.56 to break it in ,this rifle never skipped a beat and is more accurate then my old eyes  
So Del-Ton a Great value,great rifle you can spend  more but why. I'll Keep you posted in a year.
