Del-Ton Sport “DT Sport”
Yet another well-respected AR with no frills is the DT Sport, a great option at this price range. Many shoppers who are looking closely at the Bushmaster Carbon-15 may prefer the look and feel of this less common Del-Ton model.
With hard coat anodized aluminum upper and lower receivers, the DT Sport is the lightest carbine on our list, weighing in at only 5.8lbs empty. That’s nice for carrying, but slightly less comfortable for shooting. However, once you get accustomed to your rifle’s recoil, it’s really no big deal.
Like a few other entries on this list, the DT Sport has an A2 flash hider, 6-position M4 stock, and is mostly mil-spec all around. It does come with built-in front and rear sling swivels, which is a nice little feature. The biggest downside is that, with a flattop receiver that has no sights, it doesn’t come “ready to shoot” straight out of the box like a few of the others on this list.
