Who sells midlength ar kits? Why do more people not like these? I just think it makes the gun look more balanced. Thanks for the help.

M-A Parts sells midlength kits. I bought one, and it worked great. all parts went in without any problems. nice and tight fit to my lower. fired 500 rounds so far, only 2 malfunctions, both were out of the same mag.M-A Parts. price was good, delivery was quick.

What kind of stock did u go with? U think a collapsable will look fine with the midlength, or should I go with the A2? Havent seen any pics to compare.

Did the barrel actually have the gas port at the midlength position, or did it just have another front site with the functioning gas port under the handguards?

Thanks

Just got my upper from RRA today. 16" midlength, preban. Cannot wait to start the build.

Do I understand you correctly? A mid with a carbine length gas-tube?

I've never heard of such an arrangement, and frankly, that would defeat the primary purpose of getting a mid-length.

Unlike the Bushie Dissipator design, mid-lengths just have the one gas block/fsb. I have been looking at them for a while and do not know of any manufacturer that has a separate gas block on a mid-length upper.

Basically what I was asking is whether the MA product is a true midlength or just a look alike (looks like the RRA or Armalite).

I bought mine from RRA. 16 inch heavy bbl. flat top rec. Gas block was part of the front sight assy. (The way it should be!) Quality all the way around.

The M&A is a true mid-length. I had one, very good quality.

I have a M&A parts kit Mid-length and love it.

How is the balance on the M-A midlength? Also, what stock are you using? I am going to order a kit soon and am having a hard time deciding between the regular carbine, lightweight carbine, or midlength upper. Whatever I decide for the upper I will have an adjustable stock on the carbine.

Check RB precision (RRA stuff).
