I have #2 on:
Lauer Custom Weaponry OLL (LMT)
JP 3.5# Trigger Springs
Magpul CTR
GG&G UFIR w/GG&G VFG
GG&G Sling Thing a LWC OLL
Colt Detachable Carry Handle (Soon to be replaced by an Aimpoint & GG&G BUIS).

This setup shoots like a dream and is very accurate.

Unless you're planning to shoot 77gr stuff, 1/9 will be just fine.

I vote for RRA - I have 3 lowers and 2 uppers from them (including the one you list) and have been very happy.

But the real question is what do you want to rifle to do?

I just ordered a 16" CMMG Mid-Length Upper from riflegear.com to go with my CMMG lower. I did a lot of research too. In the end, I decided to go with CMMG.

Got my Stag-15 Model 2H Pre-Ban with Arms #40 (great flip site) for $489 shipped! from ar15sales.com

They drop ship from stag but can take about 10 days to get to you.
If your not in a hurry try them.

2 stag's so far and love them. Have not tried cmmg yet. Dollar for dollar I went with stag. The arms #40 flip site that it comes with made up my mind..

IMHO as a vendor and shooter, CMMG, RRA and Stag build great products.

From your selection list, I would take:

1.cmmg 18" SPR Upper w/Mid Length Gas, 1/8 twist this one because there is no clear winner on 1/7 or 1/9 or is there?

2. CMMG 16” M10 Mid-Length MedCon Upper

3. rra 16” Mid-Length A4 Upper Half
chrome lined

Mid Length is the way to go.
