Planning on building up either a RRA or Ameetec (not sure which yet) as an M4 and not sure which upper I should get. I am currently set on getting a chrome chamber and bore to make it as durable as possible. Want it at 16" length without the flash hider so I can leave it detachable.

So far I have found the following options:

Model 1: http://www.model1sales.com/item-detail.cfm?ID=UME160CL&storeid=1&image=um416pre.gif ($375.00 without bolt carrier group $495 with BCG)

Bushmaster: http://www.bushmaster.com/shopping/uppers/pre-ban/bura2b16m4.asp ($405 without bolt carrier and charging handle $545 with BCG)

RRA: http://www.rockriverarms.com/item-detail.cfm?ID=AR0801B&storeid=1&image=uentry.gif&CFID=1362590&CFTOKEN=70798304&jsessionid=06302686141095632402508 ($565 + 35(for chrome lined) this price includes bolt carrier group)

Model 1 looks cheapest but The others aren't all far off so I am wondering if I am going to regret getting the model 1? Does anyone recommend any other source for good quality at a reasonable price? Has anyone ordered this specific model from model 1 with the chrome lined chamber and bore and does the quality look good?

Might also look at DPMS from CCMG.... they should have that same thing.

I would rate Bushmater as the default standard.... they have been doing the chrome lined barrels longer than any of the others on your list, but I doubt you would be unhappy with barrels from anyone listed.

For the $30 difference... I would go with Bushmaster. Check with Eagle Firearms and see what he can ship you one for.

I should point out something. I'm pretty sure the $495 for the Model 1 is a complete kit minus a stripped lower whereas the Bushmaster is only a complete upper, not a kit, so the price difference is a lot more than it seems. I'm probably going to get the Model 1 myself. If the prices were really that close I'd get a Bushmaster too.

I got a complete M4 upper (14.5" chrome lined 1:7) from del-ton for 530 with a BCG, phantom 5c2, and a YHM 4 rail FF tube. The parts are mostly DPMS.
