I was thinking about buying this upper from them: www.model1sales.com/item-detail.cfm?ID=UCE160CL&storeid=1ℑ=u16carpre.gif

The price is right, but are they quality uppers?


I also want it to have a front flip sight and the Phantom FH...
They have an option for thier 1913 FS with flip down attachment for $85, but if I call them will they put the Yankee Hill front sight and Phantom FH on for me all at once?

Lastly, is the Yankee Hill FS good quality?...I was looking at the PRI front sight (not available through them) but for the price and if they install it for me the Yankee Hill seems like it may be the way to go.


Thanks in advance,
Derek



Edited to ask: Will these uppers work with the ARMS SIR?

I was doing some research on them (I wanted a 24" Heavy-Barrel NM barrel/upper) and their "heavy-barrels" are shrimpy compared to Bushmaster heavy-barrels.

I'm not sure about their upper receiver quality... They're quite cheap but Rock River Arms uppers are comparably priced and have limited lifetime warranties.

Yeah, and I just found you can build your own M4 upper on Adco, I think I would rather do it that way...glad I waited and kept looking, I almost bought a Model 1 just out of sheer price and desire right when I saw it.

Although, I might get the XM177 just out of sheer desire for a Vietnam era looking plinker...
