What is the best monetary value going in a 20 inch flat top upper for hunting with a scope?


Thanks

BCM $399 . Others will suggest lesser quality and say BCM is for tacticool mall ninjas but it's all B.S. BCM makes one of the best uppers for the money.
Not all uppers are equal and not all metals are equal. Research and read opinions from proffesionals who test these rifles.

i think i'd look at the PSA for $409, and it comes with a BCG,and charge handle. i don't know if these have the FN barrel or not..they look good on paper.

This would be my suggestion as well. They can put a low pro gas block on it for you if that is what you want. You just have to call and ask.

ETA: Plus, like 90% of their own uppers, BCM is out of stock on the 20" uppers.

I went PSA over BCM for the option of Low-Pro Gas-Block.. just clearly put it in the notes you want to substitute the standard FSB/gas block for a low-pro and they will.. I also noted to leave the flashhider off or loose, and they did.. (had to install a Brake for NJ shooting and didn't feel like fighting to get it off).. both for FREE..

BCM said they will not do it.. everything is pre-assembled they said..

got my PSA upper in 7 days.. as stated on there page..





granted this is a 16".. and I have yet to upgrade to longer rail.. but at least I can without all the drama with the Std FSB removal..

The Palmetto 20" upper has a lot of promise. If they were around 6 months ago I would have gone for them. But a few months ago when I went to a flat top upper, the only really good deal I could find was a Del-Ton 20" it is 1/9 and non-chrome lined but the real selling point was that it came with a charing handle, M16 BCG with excellent staking and an HPT/MPI bolt. I thought that was a good deal given the options.

I stopped by PSA yesterday; no 20" uppers in stock.
Sometimes you have to look for the irony, and sometimes it runs at you, head-butts you, kicks you in the balls, then bends you over and makes you its bitch.

I just ordered the one from PSA a few days ago. Next, I am going to have ADCO turn it into an ultra-lite. Looks like I got my order in just in time.

BCM or PSA.

Hard to beat PSA since their prices include the BCG with specs similar to BCM. They also offer hammer forged or stainless steel barrels.
