CMMG is good stuff. I've had a few of their uppers that have served me reliably with great accuracy. Get the one with the mid-length gas system vs. the carbine gas system.

I have a CMMG middy on one of my rifles - functions flawlessly.

thanks guys for the info.

is there an advantage to the mid vrs the carbine length? im assuming maybe a better weight balance? or is there a difference in the way the actual gas system performs?

stock is a CTR.

the gas pressure isnt as high hitting the bolt in a mid length because the tube is longer. the AR system was never intended to be carbine it was designed around a 20" barrel and rifle length tube.

you could build a bcm one for the same price btw if you used a yankee hill rail.

CMMG is a quality upper. I had one before and loved it.

I have a 16 and 20". Both perform without issue. GTG.

I own a 16" CMMG upper, works great and accuracy is great even when shooting the 55gr bullets out of the 1:7 twist.

CMMG 1/9 WASP 16" Works great !

Another with great results and service from CMMG. If I wasn't going to build my own they would be building it for me.

I have the 14.5 CMMG with the Phantom flash hider. It's runs flawlessly. By far my favorite AR upper.
