I was looking to build an upper with a fluted stainless steel 16" barrel and a mid length gas system. After talking on the phone with Dustin I decided to have him cut down a longer barrel he had in stock. Here's pics of the barrel work he's done. There are more photos on his Instagram (http://statigr.am/civtactical) account and Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/pages/CIV-Tactical-Inc/306342592762387).

Great upper, shoots extremely well. But ultimately this upper went to a friend who wanted it more than I did.
