I was looking at either a RRA or DPMS upper for my Spike lower and wanted to know if the tones of black in either are similar to the Spike? I was planning for a varmint upper. Thanks for any advice.

I have both RRA and DPMS. The RRA is a 20" and the DPMS is a 16" M-4 type. Both have chrome-lined barrels, and both are reliable as hell! I know people have had problems with DPMS in the ast, but in the past year, their quality Control is as good as most other companies. Neever ahd a problem with it.

The RRA I just got, and I got a super deal from Legal Transfers. Go to AR15.com Equipment Exchange Section, and look for Legal Transfers. Got a great deal for the upper, $439 USD for complete upper with chrome-lined barrel, bolt and charging handle.
