This kinda stuff drives Nick crazy: “new” guns that are evolutions (or slight modifications) of old guns. In some cases it’s porcine make-up. In other cases it’s lipstick on Anna Bauman. I reckon Del-Ton’s DTI Evolution errs on the side of Israeli models, and not just because ANY AR you can buy or own is a babe these days. The $1300 Evo’s got everything I want in an AR and nothing more, save an optic, sling and a lower price. From the product page: “The DTI Evolution has a 16″ Mid-Length CMV chrome lined barrel with 1×9 twist and a lightweight profile. This rifle features Samson Evolution 12.37″ Free Float Rail over a Samson Low Profile Gas Block, Samson Front and Rear Folding Sights, to complete the rifle Magpul Moe+ Grip and Magpul CTR Stock.” YNMV (Your Nick May Vary).
