I'd like one of these like Del-Ton and Bushmaster/DPMS offers. Will I have to keep waiting? From what I can tell, sourcing the parts to build it will cost more than buying the complete upper. A2 stripped uppers don't seem easy to find either.

You could always build one yourself. I don't see building one costing more than buying one.

The majority of the shit you need can be found in EE cheaper too.

IIRC, the Bushy barrels are overly massive under the hand guards if that matters to you.

Much cheaper....

I tend to buy ban era Bushmaster barrels then turn them down to what I need.

Do you mean like this pic below? Is that something desirable in pistol form?
