I have exactly that upper on a recent build. Very happy with my purchase!!! It uses a match grade, stainless barrel that for me, has been very, very accurate. As you'd expect, it has also been utterly reliable with no FTE's, FTF's, or any other complaints.

Used it for a "relatively" light weight build to use for a carbine class I was taking. I am extremely happy with the results. These folks make quality products!!!! That's saying quite a lot coming from me as I have high expectations and am not afraid to voice negative opinions.

My only complaint is that they don't have more offerings!!!

Heck, they are so close by that delivery is lightening fast once shipped and since they are out of state, there's no tax.

You can see from the photo that their uppers are more on the matt grey/parkarized side when it comes to color. The lower I used for that build (Ammo Bros. brand) is gloss black. The American Defense scope mount is somewhere in the middle. I could care less about color matching, so this didn't matter to me. If you care, you might consider getting a lower with a parkarized type/looking finish or color to it.

Actually, I never paid any attention to the ejection port door. I never close it, so the underside could be painted Hello Kitty Pink for all I know. ;)

I've got the 16" GTac upper and it's got a scratched up door as well. I didn't really care though. It's a great value for the components that you get. I haven't run mine hard at all, but I've had zero problems with it plinking at the range. Also I heard that NFA will customize it for you if you wanted a different length handguards or whatever. You'd just pay the difference in component cost. My handguard looks a bit darker than Calplinker's, could be a photography thing or YHM's issue though.

a dusk cover, realy???



I'm having trouble deciding which upper I should go with, Palmeto, Delton and New Frontier are all the same price.

I do dig how New Frontier looks like

LOL ya I couldn't understand why they went A+ on everything else but couldn't get a correctly matched and unscratched ejection door cover. No it's not a huge deal but really lol it does take away from the 10 and make it a 9. Your telling me if you purchased a Camaro you'd be ok with a scratched up moonroof? Mine was scratched to sh**...As for the color of the upper itself mine seems a little darker than yours. Shoots like a dream and came fast although stupid a** UPS left it sitting on my doorstep and doorbell ditched me when they delivered it. I was even waiting like 4 feet from the door. He was down the stairs and around the corner before I could get to the door O.o....

As a sid enote Deltons crap....
