    I can get a Del-ton upper for $375.

    Del-ton 16" Mid length heavy barrel upper, chrome moly barrel with M4 feed ramps. Includes bolt carrier group and charging handle. (Regular price $395) on sale for $375

    Or I can get a PSA upper for $100 more.

    Which one should I get?

    PSA more than likely. PSA has chrome lined barrels/chambers and 1/7 twists. The Del-Ton you list doesn't appear to be chrome lined, and most Del-Tons are 1/9 twist, though they do make some 1/7 barrels.

    PSA. Higher quality per everything I have read. I have no first hand experience with either, but I'd err on the side of caution and go with the higher end upper right off the bat.

    Enjoy :)

    Del-Ton builds a fine product and the CS has always been good to me. I have used several of their upper over the past few years. I recently bought my first PSA upper. For $375, you will not get the CL barrel, nor 1:7 twist. You know what, I do not care. A 1:9 non-CL barrel will allow you to shoot anything up to around a 72gr. round. Additionally, if you keep your weapon clean, then the CL does not mean mush at all. All that said, buy the Del-Ton with confidence.

    Between those two I would get a PSA. If only for resale value.

    I was looking at their website and saw that they have 300BLK uppers in stock. Very cool.

    I have several Del Ton uppers and have been very pleased with the quality and the accuracy of them. Both their chrome lined and non chrome lined barrels are quality built barrels.

    I have 4 Del-Ton carbines, shot hundreds if not thousands of rounds thru them...would trust my life to em, just as accurate and as reliable as my 6920.....just my 2 cents worth, but I think they are the best value out there right now.
