Just finished today with a Cav Arms lower with a double digit serial lower. Cav Arms buttstock.
I bought this upper a year ago off the EE. I have no idea what the manufacturer is. The front sight has a diamond on the side and the Upper reciever has a C K on the side of the handle. No barrel markings. I would love to know what it is if anyone knows.
Total money spent on this is $605.00. It's a sweet shooter.

Edit: Just found the barrel markings. Says C MP Chrome Bore. The bolt carrier has a C on it.

IIRC, the CK means it's a Colt, with the raw forging provided by Kaiser Aluminum.

A pencil barrel with no markings whatsoever is a bit odd.  Look between the legs of the FSB, or on the bottom just aft of the flash hider.

Wow. just saw the markings. Very hard to read. Says C MP Chrome Bore.

That barrel would be a Colt as well, vintage early 1970s to mid 1980s-ish.

Is this upper worth more than the $280.00 i paid for it?

$280?  Did that include the bolt and carrier?

Nice ones are going for a bit more than that without the BCG.

Yes. it did come with the bolt and carrier. So how much do you think ? It appears to be in good condition for how old it is. the only major wear is on the front site from falling down a few times in my closet. I've been holding on to this for the past year thinking it was some cheap upper. Goes to show how much i know. I once bought a pre-93 oly arms lower for $100 two years ago not knowing it was a pre-93. Sold it for $280 later.

So pretty. I love A1s. Basic Training in 87 with one. Panama in 89 the First Gulf War......then that wonderful African country in 93. All with an A1.

Nice build.

Looks good.  I just traded my Stag A2 upper for an SP1 upper free and clear to build my GAU5-A/A.

Nice looking build, and a good price for the upper.  Decent A1 uppers seem to be going for a minimum of about $200 nowdays, and another $85 or so for the B/BCG.  And thats the low side, for a generic upper.  You done good.
