View Full Version : Looking for a new upper, any finishes?

I have been using my spikes lower and bushmaster carbon 15 upper with great success for a month now and as much as I like the upper I'm thinking of trying something different. As far as regular uppers are concerned, I want something of the same material as my lower (the spikes one, I think its aluminum, seems high quality for the price) and I was seeing that spike and some other brand actually did melonite finish for corrosion and shooting corrosive ammo. Do any brands do that still and/or does it break the bank?

Any ideas?

Oh I should have mentioned the budget for the new upper is 500...550 max, is there any quality stuff you guys can think of in that range?

Is it true since the lower is the firearm that I can order the upper online?
