Congrats on your new toy. I just saw the private message but I can't reply to it due to not enough posts yet.
Delton is alright.. Not really worth commenting on it if you already bought it.
I would spend 5 bucks and do the "Crane Mod" on the extractor:
I doubt it shipped that way, but you can pull the bolt out and pop the extractor off and check: black oring on the spring means its done already.
That will give a bit more extractor strength and could help with crappy ammo. Overall it can't hurt.
Another thing to check is the staking on the gas key, haven't seem a Del-Ton in a while so not sure if they do that from the factory. Pull the bolt
carrier group, and looking at the top the small tube attached to the main body with two screws (called the gas key) should have some "dents" in the
surrounding metal into the screw itself. The prevents the screws from backing out on there own from vibration and recoil.
I can find you a guide on doing a staking job without the very awesome MOACKS tool I use (not worth the 100 bucks for one rifle..)
Otherwise enjoy the rifle and get some more mags. I'm a pmag fan.. But there is other good options too if that's not your cup of tea
