Uppers range in price from Model 1 sales at $4-500 mark, up to whatever you want to spend with options. MSTN and JTAC Supply have uppers available with Douglas Premium barrels, free float handguards, built on LMT M4 flattop upper receivers for around $1295 starting price shooting 3/4 MOA on average.

I have an MSTN built custom 6.8SPC 16.5" SPRish upper (the 6.8SPC version of the twins, if you do a search), the "Douglas Premium barrels" are easily capable of >0.75MOA with the latest Remington 115gr OTM ammo (I've had 0.5 MOA 5rd groups with mine). With the 115gr Sierra loading, I hope even better.
