anywhere else i can find a decent Gas piston Complete upper for around the same price and that is in STOCK?

Maybe Adams Arns? If it were me I would just save another 150-200 and go for a addax gpu.

Call and ask him when he'll be getting more. He's a high volume dealer, so his stock changes frequently.

The difference will be mostly cosmetic with the longer handguards. There will be a small difference in the amount of recoil you feel with the midlength having the less of the two. That's about it.

That's for a carbine length piston system. You mentioned you wanted mid-length-

Buy a mid length upper from JSE surplus for $375 and then get an Adams Arms conversion from Rainier Arms for $279.

As a former POF owner (loved the rifle - had it for 2 1/2 years - sold it for a profit to someone who wanted it MORE! http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/images/icons/icon14.gif), I'd say either have Chris @ Addax build it (he built me a GREAT DI upper - I'd trust his work), or pinch more pennies for a POF or LWRCi. I have heard good things about Adams conversions, but have no experience with them.

I built my piston upper with an Adams Arms kit and it works great. Addax does make great uppers but they cost more than $600.

You figure just to build a plain jane middy GPU will cost more than $600. It will cost close to $700 by the time you add in shipping charges.

If you want to go the conversion route, Spike Tactical had their piston conversion on sale a few weeks ago for $199 Not sure if its still on sale but it might be worth looking into
