Default 16" 556 fully assembled upper w 15" mlok $140 f/s

Best deal going. Free delivery. Use code TAKE15 for final price of 139.99 with no assembly required. Own a few from previous sale, best upper for the money period!

Really bad reviews of them online, especially with their customer service. Not familiar with their actual products though. Buyers beware.

Not true. Well maybe they have bad reviews online, but they have fairly good reviews on Calguns and Iíve heard from other members they were quick to respond to issues.

With that being said, Iím not sure itís the best deal going. If I were buying a budget upper, Iíd go with a $200 bear creek which comes with bcg and ch.. or with one of the palmetto state uppers.

And for whatís its worth, I bought 2 of the kits that came unassembled and had no issues.

Bought 3 of the kits and had no problems with assembly. These look different but might pick up a couple

Didn't they have a $99 kit a little while back (that requires assembly)? The pricing is unreal.

I believe this is the same kit or same with upgraded hand guard, but with all assembly in house. For what it's worth to those looking to purchase or on the fence, I have 2 of this exact upper from them from a previous sale and both have 500+ flawless rounds through them. Both easily shoot 2-2.5moa at 100yds and no doubt would tighten up a bit with match ammo and a proper benchrest. The rifle length gas system is also a plus as these seem to shoot softer than my mid or carbine length gas system uppers. So far very accurate and reliable, for $139 delivered I consider it a win

Sounds like a true Dissipator gas system.

as I mentioned I have two of these already and collectively between the two have a thousand plus rounds with absolutely no cycling issues. Can't comment on the dwell time as far as a numeric value for you.

Combat Armory is G-T-G, have numerous orders with them including BCGs and uppers, no problems, I use their 15% off discount code TAKE15 on every order.

16 inch barrrels with rifle gas are rare. That said, looks like a tempting deal for a plinker upper.

Thanks for the tip. For under $140.00 out the door. I had to do it. :-)

Mine came in yesterday. Nice. Looks like this deal is still live if you want one.

The link currently says that this is a mid-length gas system. I was interested to try the rifle length system.

I think the rifle length gas system was a typo; the position of the gas block in the picture is much closer to mid-length. Maybe someone who received one can confirm.

Can anyone verify if this upper is rifle or midlength?

Just look at the second picture. Obviously mid length.
