I'm aware of Bushmaster making a 20" 1/9 chome-lined upper, but does anyone else make a 20" upper that I should consider?

My process was slow and painful, but I shopped the EE for a Colt 1/7 gov't profile barrel and got a new one, with shipping tube and everything, for just over $100. I then bought the rest of the components and put it together. I already had the KAC M5 RAS available. The barrel was the hardest thing to find. Good luck with your build.

Added a pic to help inspire you!

Bushmaster also makes the gov profile 1/7 20" barrel.

You have to call and ask for it but they do have them. That is were I got mine.

I ordered the barrel only and installed it, but I'm sure Bushmaster would put the upper together for you (for the right price ).

No RAS yet

I just ordered a FN 1/7 gov't profile barrel from Fulton Armory. They have them in stock. Bushmaster will make you wait for a couple months.

What I'd like to know is what type of railed forearm in on the USMC A4's. Is it a free-float forearm, or is it one that snaps on like the regular A2 handguards? What brand is it and where can I get one that looks just like it?

Lumpy,

Sell me on the LaRue ACOG mount... I just got my ACOG on my M16A4gery and all it has is the standard Trijicon flat top mount - what does the ACOG do better?

Spooky
