Found some on GB for a good price, they go by "Hardened Arms". Not any feedback on them online that I can find. Delton has some that are priced pretty good but they have no bcg nor bolt. Can anyone give some good advice on the best A2 style FULL UPPER for Best Price/Best Quality. Thanks

No, but its the same company. They had uppers for under 400 bucks on Gunbroker but they didn't mention "Yankee Hill" until I saw the website. Do yo guys any suggestions on a good upper that wont break the bank that don't have any reputation of problems? I would think they all work the same but here in NC some local company (Rogio or roxio I think ) made Uppers and they literally would crack and Bcg's would mess up very early after buying. Just wondering what Lower end Brand Names (Lower end as in lower price) are good Uppers vs High End Colt's etc etc??

not as much as some of their slogans on their webpage such as "buy with confidence - 2 year manufacturer warranty" while most offer a lifetime warranty and I understand a select few do not but when you are new to the game, you probably should.

shop the EE hard for a deal on a well built upper half that includes a quality CH & BCG
Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
and the eyesight to tell the difference.

Edit- missed this conversation completely. Didn't realize it was for a full upper.

I wouldn't buy it just cause of the gay NASCAR sticker all over it. I wish this fad would die out.

Well the Harden Arms upper came in last night & my 1st thought is its ok, not the guality of some AR's I have but it was a good price. One thing that stood out was the rear take down pin was very hard to get in & out (I had to tap it) I'll work on getting it loosen up. I'll take it to the range tonight & see how it shoots.

Well I did not get out to the shooting property until late & had meeting with the club members so by the time I finished up it was dark. I fired off 3 rounds just to see if the gun would shoot (will go back to sign in) & one thing I noticed was that the gun was not picking up the next round. So it shot, it ejected the shell & did not take another from the mag. Now the only mag I had was a Magpul 20 round, which I've had feeding problems before in my 223, so it could be the mag. I would just rack another round in & it would do the same thing.
I had fire cleaned the gun so it was well lubed & was shooting 220 gr Remington subsonic's.
So much more shooting is needed & will do that this weekend, stand by.

Magpul 20 rounders have a reputation of problems for some reason. Sounds like you're doing the right thing w/ a mag change.

sdeshazo,
I wanted to check with you to see if you have had a chance to get out to the range any more with your Hardened Arms upper? I've been watching a couple of auctions that they have on Gunbroker for a 300 AAC upper and I'm trying to find out if anyone has anything really bad to say about them. Thanks in advance.

My haredened arms 7.5" pistol upper should be here next week. From what I saw and read It should fit the bill with my low budget pistol build. I let eveyone know how it does when I take it to the range. 375.00 with BCG and charge hadle out the door was a pretty good deal I thought. gun broker of course.

My exact thought, but if nobody tried the new builders and manufacturers we'd have no BCM, DD, Noveske, Larue, Spikes, PSA etc
We'd all own A B C rifles.
