The New DTI Echo 316-OR Rifle!

Del-Ton is currently manufacturing 3 new AR-15 configurations for release late this year and early next 2013. In our most recent post, we highlighted the DT Sport-OR which is being shipped to distributors already.  The DT Sport is our "entry level" black rifle; the new OR model (optics ready) offers the same quality for which DTI rifles are known, but with a low profile gas block instead of the standard front sight base. This design allows additional flexibility for optic choices (low mounts or low magnification optics). 

This post will focus on the new carbine, heavy-barreled, OR rifle that offers some additional upgrades from the 2 DT Sport models.

The Echo 316H OR is a solid, mid-priced carbine ready to be mounted with the optic and/or BUIS (back up iron sights) of your choosing.  Key features include:

  • 16” chrome moly vanadium barrel with a 1X9 twist (allowing a wide range of ammunition options). The "heavy" profile barrel (.750 diameter) has M4 feed ramps for more reliable feeding.
  • Single rail gas block for mounting flip up front sights designed for gas blocks (sight not included).  No fixed front sight to affect target acquisition with low mounted or low magnification optics.
  • HPT/MPI tested Carpenter 158 steel bolt. Carrier features a chrome lined interior. Carrier key has a chrome lined interior and is properly staked and sealed.
  • A3 flat top upper receiver with T marks and M4 feed ramps.
  • Upper and lower receivers are hard coat anodized, Mil-Spec, forged 7075 T6 aluminum.
  • M4 6-position buttstock with a Mil-Spec buffer tube and H-Buffer.
  • Weight: 6.4 lbs, length-collapsed (32.625"), length-extended (36.375")
  • MSRP: $864.00

If an AR-15 primarily dedicated for optic use would fulfill your typical mission requirements, the Echo 316-OR is a top quality choice to consider.  Like all DTI rifles, the  Echo 316-OR offers a lifetime warranty to the original purchaser and comes with industry-leading customer service to ensure a a lifetime of service and enjoyment.
