I have narrowed my purchase search to the following uppers with rails.

Price wise there really isn't that much difference and feature sets seem to be fairly equivalent.

Do you have any additional recommendations based on quality or fit and finish particulars?

I vote for the Yankee Hill specter upper...

but thats just me.... or because I've bought 3 of them.

I also vote for the cmmg. I designed my upper off that one; I run cmmg upper receiver with a midwest ind 12 inch single piece free float rail and a 20 inch barrel. Only downside is that it doesn't come with iron sights if you planned on using them. If you are, I would go with the stag.

Daniel Defense are top notch

In all honesty, the Daniel Defense will get you the absolute best in quality of those listed, with the CMMG's coming in a close second.

The YHM's are fancy looking and feature-filled, but we get pretty mixed reviews from customers on those ones.

Stag's work, but are lacking a few of the nicer mil-spec features which a lot of our customers prefer (4150 steel, M4 feedramps, 1/7 twist).
