Need some opinions on a SPR build I am considering. I was looking at the Larue Stealth in 18". I know I can not go wrong with Larue but I was looking at an upper offered by JTAC that is pretty close to the original MK12 SPR. http://www.jtacsupply.com/18ar15mk12mod1sprupperreceiver.aspx. You get a choice of VLTOR MUR1A upper with a Douglas Barrel.

I can't decide between the 2. This will replace a RRA Varmint upper that I have. I assume both should shoot sub MOA. Which one would you consider and why? I believe the warranty will be longer with Larue and like I said before, can't really go wrong with Larue but the JTAC build appears nice also. Has anyone had any experience with JTAC and their quality? Price is pretty close between the two.

Please help me decide.

Thanks.

+1 on Larue. I think they even guarantee accuracy.

Here is mine, but if I have to do it again, I *may* go Larue.

I've got the KAC HG, and Douglas SS Barrel, and OPS INC brake.

Have you considered ADCO or MSTN? They both build exact and inexact SPR uppers, and I don't think anyone's ever been dissatisfied with their work.

I love my larue and i am very pleased I got it after going between adco,noveske and larue but you may want to look at adco's offering's also... if you go with another upper it will still end up with a larue accessory... dammit my koolaid spilled
