Hello, im looking for a upper for my AR ill give you a list of the rest of my gun so you have a idea of what its going to be working with

Mega Lower
RRA stage 2 LPK
CTR stock
Maid pistol grip
if the upper doesnt have a BUIS then ill put a Midwest Folding rear sight
and if it doesnt have a rail then a midwest rail

now here a list of what i want my upper to have

16 inch barrel
1/7 twist
fixed front sight (must have a fixed sight dont want a folding front sight)
mid-length handguard prefered but i might settle for a carbine
looking in the 800 to 1100 range

also im not really looking at RRA or STAGs, i would like a little higher quality upper, if anyone has any suggestions feel free, im also looking for a online dealers who has a good stock besides riflegear coldwarshooters, and ten percent. thanks in advance for any input and help

BCM, LMT, Daniel Defense all make excellent uppers.

bravocompanyusa.com has plenty in stock

Actually I think RRA makes pretty good stuff for the price. But CMMG, BCM, LMT are also good to go. You might even find a Noveske upper in that price range if you're patient.

Lots of choices. $1000 will easily get you a very nice upper.

Bravo Company has a good selection but all there uppers say it does not include charging handle or bolt carrier grouping, i want to buy a already built upper that i can bolt onto my gun

I know you said you really don't want RRA but this is a good deal!

BCM

Under 1100 will get you a BCM Middy with DD lite rail, complete BCG and CH. Add a BUIS and you are all set.

I am pretty happy with my CMMG 14.7 inch with a pinned YHM phantom. It shoots well, and was a good fit to both my S&W lower, and my Charles Daly. I bought mine from marksarmory.com, and they have a pretty good sale right now. Calguns supporters too!

upper must be new, so i dont think ill be able to find a brand new colt upper right now, i'd prefer a noveske over a bcm but ill keep that in mind, thinking of going with this Noveske N4 Light Recce Basic 16" Upper,anyone have one that can tell me about it ? or if anyone has seen one in the SF bay area or sacramento at a gun store let me know

I would also add, I would take a Centurion (http://centurionarms.com/products/p001_upper_recce.html) over a Noveske and get the DD rail instead.

I would also take a BCM before a NRW.

Hey Epic, I just got the Noveske N4 Light Recce FSR upper straight from Noveske last week. Went to the range and put 200 rounds through it, worked great and I'm very happy with it. Looks like the one you had your eye on is almost the same except for the handguard, mine also has the fixed front sight and came with a Noveske branded foldup rear sight as well.

You said it yourself. Go for the Noveske and be done with it happily :D

Bravo Company middie. You can get everything you need -- upper, handguard, CH, BCG, and BUIS for right around $800.

#3, 4, and 5 down on the page are your friends. Sabre defense mid length 1:7 twist 16" Fixed and f-marked FSB, chrome lined quality barrels. First one is a whopping $590 with BCG. I personally if I had a grand laying around would get the troy 10" mid upper for $750. Thats a great upper with a stainless barrel.

Either way, good luck with your decision.

I just got a BCM middy upper along with the BCG and CH from them. You cannot beat their quality for less than $660 bucks.

I took it to the range for the first time last weekend. I have a very light coat of oil on the contact points of the BCG...shot 100 rounds without a single issue.

Go with BCM, you will not be sorry.

When the hell did RRA become Stag quality? I think you should dig a little further, and find out why they had a 2 month wait before the Obama Craze! RRA makes great rifles!

RRA has always had a wait time....that really has nothing to do with much of anything but their slow production.

Stag very well may just be a step above RRA depending on how you look at it. We are talking about M4gerys here just to be clear.

ya either way i wanted a little higher quality upper than both stag and rra which i think are pretty close, BCM is a nice company i just dont want to buy the BCG and CH seperate but i might just do it if i cant find one that fits my needs
