Did you look around their site? All their uppers are near $1100. Plus wth is a match grade detachable carry handle?? Lol

I'd think they need to list alot more info before advertising that upper is the most accurate 308 on the market.............

I built mine back in the beginning of this year and still built one for less than a lot that are out there. Look around and you can find the prices.

I have a Rainier 18" ultra match, gas block and tube. I was so happy with their customer service and products that I bought one of their complete 15's.

Quality, well made and good inventory to choose from.

I don't order anything from a website that does not list a address.

Man that's weird. I've been looking at an Ar15 upper from them on gunbroker for a few weeks. They sell them for about 2-3 hundred cheaper on broker than on their website. All of their reviews from buyers have been very positive, and i must admit Mike is very helpful and answers all questions very quickly. Really can't recommend since i haven't pulled the trigger yet, but that's just a money issue.

For 1500 bucks you can build a quad rail free floating upper with a match barrel and still have a few hundred bucks left.

Thank you for posting the question and all the responses/feedback. We certainly appreciate the opportunity to respond because many people that are unfamiliar with who we are have a hard time understanding the quality of the product we ship out, the integrity of our manufacturing process, the QC that goes into our material selection and the level of service we work hard to maintain. Unless you’ve purchased from us, you simply wouldn’t have any way of knowing so we understand that. That being said, since we launched our brand on a national level, we have yet to have a single complaint, which I think speaks volumes about who we are and what we do. Also, the growth we have experienced on the civilian side, causing us to open a second production facility to service the West Coast has been driven primarily by referrals and repeat business…

And I think we can all agree that our website is terrible at this time but that is because we are gun builders, not website designers... We’ve been focused on our customers and trying to keep up with demand and the site has suffered because of it. We’ve made numerous attempts to hire it out and as anyone that has tried can tell you, finding gun friendly designers is almost an oxymoron but we are working on it and appreciate everyone’s patience.

To answer the questions on whether you can build something similar at a lower cost, it simply cannot be done. The comparisons of product made above are apples and oranges. If you want to experiment and build your own, we are all for that! It’s the American way, right? But if you want a proven, Mil-tested, high end, reliable upper assembly that none of your friends has and you’re the only one taking out 6 inch targets at 1,500 meters with a 16 inch barrel, then you come to us.

Thank you giving us a looks and allowing us the opportunity to respond.

I really want to know what your barrel is made out of?
To have a 16" barrel capable of keeping .308 supersonic at 1600+yards and shoot better than .5 MOA. Screw physics you must have magic and pixie dust.

What does one of these omnipotent barrels cost?

Great questions! While we realize and appreciate the heavily laden sarcasm :thumbs-up: this is America everyone has a right to their own opinion. We provide our product to our customers who want our product, if you don't want to pay the price for our upper receivers then don't. To those who have purchased a product from us, thank you, and we know you are pleased with it. We are always open to answering or clarifying any questions you may have. On the 1500M comment, that was a typo, and I do apologize, we will ensure our posts are checked prior to submitting, especially when done on a mobile device.
