who has a good quality standard A3 removable handle for the best price. most I've seen are about $100.

edit: I had to change A2 to A3, what was I thinking?

I don't know if you're going to find a good DCH for much cheaper than $100. I could be wrong though. If you can't find one for much cheaper I would suggest coughing up an extra $20 and putting an LMT BUIS on your flattop. This way you have the exact same rear sight setup as the standard A2 but you still have exposed rail space to mount your optics on if you do in fact have or are planning on purchasing optics. Just my suggestion.

yeah that had crossed my mind. no biggie i'll just pay the $100 bucks and get a Bushy A2 handle since it's a Bushy rifle. i didn't want to sound like a cheap skate yet i didn't want an "el cheapo" A2 handle either.

Armalites removeable handle is way better workmanship than Bushmasters.

Armalite P/N E20149 is $97.

Another vote for the LMT.
But, if you are going to spend a hundred bucks, get an ARMS #40.
If you decide to add optics later, you'll be ahead with either of these, but behind with a CH.

I pained over the decision, carry handle? ARMS #40? or a LMT rear sight? I settled on the LMT; durn thing is build like a tank. I don't think I'll be breaking the rear sight anytime soon. No looking back on this decision...I'll be adding a mount for an Aimpoint in the near future.

Steve has the Rock River A2 Carry Handle for $114 with shipping at www.adcofirearms.com It's a nice unit.

I picked up a used one on the EE here for $50 that is pretty much identical except it has courser "Full-Click" adjustments instead of the "Half-Click" adjustments the Steve's has.

all of my other AR's are also flattops either with ARMS #40 with optics, or #38 swan sleeve with optics. I want to once again make this Bushy A3 upper into a "plain jane" A2 20" upper with no extras. I have looked at Adco too and RRA is another option. Russ, didn't know Armalite's was any better but I will take that into consideration. Thanks for everyone's input.

I understand what you are trying to do. That's cool. I like plain jane AR's as well.

Just for the hell of it here is what I did with the A3 handle that came with my Bushy:

ha, yeah I've seen your pic before buckshot and I like it. I'm sure I'll end up trying that someday.

00_buckshot, what mount are you using on that pic for the Aimpoint and does that set up cause any problem getting the lens cover all the way open/down in front of the cut carry handle?
