So I have decided that for my first AR I would like to have a Dissipator build. After looking around online I found two websites that sold the kit for very reasonable prices. However, I called one of them and they said the wait for that upper is 7 months! My goal to have an AR built this summer. The other website I contacted is not responding.

Does anyone know where to get one of these uppers? Preferably an A3 flattop with a rail gas block. But that is that too important.

Can someone point me in the right direction??

Thanks.

Bushmaster, CMMG, Model 1 Sales, sell them. Here's a link to one currently on gunbroker: http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.asp?Item=127326380. It's an A2 though. Doesn't look like it includes the clip either.:p

If you want it this summer you might have to find a used one. Everyone is months behind in production. 7 months is a short wait right now.

Like the other posters noted, now is the spring and summer of our discontent with availability and prices.

If you have to have something now you'll be paying a premium - if you can wait, you'll be better off.

Model 1 Sales is the one who said there is a 7 month wait. I am going to call Bushmaster tomorrow.

Let me know what Bushmaster says their wait is. I couldn't get an answer, and have been witing for over 2 months.
I just fired off another e-mail I'll let you know if they answer.

I just made some calls:

Bushmaster: 6+ months
Double Star: 4-5 months
CMMG: 6+ months

I think I need to start looking for used ones. *sigh*
