I used one for my build during "hysteria '09!" @ $575

I remember someone posting that they were using CMMG and sabre barrels at the time. Can't find the post now.
It shoots well!

Hot Damn! I can't believe nobody's replied to this thread so far but one person!!!!

Is this a dang freaking deal, or not? Money wise, I think 525 complete upper is not bad at all. But if you look at the specs, it matches those of Daniel D, BCM, and some other high end manufacterer's specs. Plzzzzzzz tell me this is not a good deal, or is it?

I'm new to AR's, but I've leart to read specs (somewhat) :)

Not Bad at all! But considering you can get a Daniel for 499, mmm.. I'm not sure. Dang, can someone help. I'm hoping some AR Guru will jump in here and help us figure out the BEST deal... :D

it looks like a good deal, you cant really find those DD at that price recently, and the bcm does for around 600. but says shipping in april so your gonna have to wait. if i was waiting for an upper id get it

First on on the Top. Daniel Defense for $495 (complete upper).

It's very intriguing spikes has similar specs...

That's not the same as a complete DD upper like the XV that was on sale for $499. I doubt you will see that deal come back in the near future. So this looks to be a good deal on this Spikes upper.

I'm a little confused - So are you saying the DD is a better upper or the spikes? (Given the Specs & Quality of parts used) :confused: I know both deals seem good, and probably won't come back anytime soon. Maybe I should get a couple.. :))

DD is a better upper because of the materials and parts used but seeing as that deal is long gone the Spikes is a bargain.
The DD has a Cold Hammer Forged Barrel and the Spikes doesn't.

On the link you posted for PKfirearms just scroll down a bit and take a look at the price jump when they add a Hammer Forged Barrel.

It is a good deal on the spike's. Especially with the $50 coupon. Not a screaming, must buy it deal. But if you need an upper, that is a decent price with all of the extras.
