Hey all i searched all the keywords that i could think of but didn't find anything. Just the other day i saw one of these on somebodys web site for around $550 but i can't remember where it was. Can anyone point me in the right direction to find one close to this price range?

Cant help you with an S&W version but...

If you can go without an S&W than try:

Rguns

Or Midway

It seems Talon Arms has it, see link above. Unfortunately, it's not the $550 one. I was among the first batch of people to receive M&P-15R upper from Militarygunsupply.com when it become available, but they no longer offer this product and it was $599.99.

Aimsurplus.com carries the 5.45 S&W upper. I'm not sure if they have it in stock right now, though.

Personally, I'd spend the money on a 5.45x39 Saiga than buying a 5.45x39 upper. Ran into a lot of problem with my M&P-15R upper. It ran okay now, but still not 100% reliable. See my old post:

May be I am unlucky and everyone else has theirs run fine without a glitch...

Maybe...Mine's run 100% with about 2000 rounds through it. Stronger hammer spring and 5.45 mags.

I got mine from Stormfront Tactical: http://secure.stormfront-tactical.com/catalog/shopping_cart.php?sort=4a&page=2&osCsid=ec2b86df6c47a677b3aba7159fa9ffd1

Unfortunately, he's out of stock right now. I had a parkerizing issue on mine, and he exchanged it for another one from S&W (after he got a bunch of bad ones).

As far as using the upper - I haven't had any issues with it. I did use the heavy spring that comes with the upper, but so far it works well.

The S&W 5.45 upper has a chrome-lined barrel.
I'd hold out for one of those over other brands that most likely aren't chromed.

I see one in stock at one of my vendors. Price would be $650 plus tax and shipping though. They only have one left.

RGuns are chrome lined.


Chrome lined heavy barrel, 1:8" twist. Includes one (1) 30 round magazine

I guess you are just unlucky then. My ran 100% even with a defective bolt, S&W replaced it no questions ask.
