SS 16" Midlength Upper Build (WIP with pics)
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 account and Facebook page.

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