ok, so this is my first build. I am sitting on a DPMS lower, LPK and buttstock ready to go.
I am up in the air as in what to get next. I see the Del Ton upper kits for approx. $400. Add the forearms I want and that is close to another $200 and then some decent rear flip up sites and I am close to $700 total.
Do I just buy the CMMG 16" carbine for $700 total, that comes with the forearms and rear flip site all included. I know they are tougher to get right now but if I can wait that seems like the package to get.
Real quick, I am also up in the air if I want a carbine or midlength. I am not a big guy, only 5'7", so I am guessing the shorter carbine may fit my overall arm length better.
Either company is gonna have a wait right now....I have a Del-ton and it is a nice rifle but I think the CMMG may be a bit better but don't know first hand....I would get a middy.
Email/call www.bravocompanyusa.com for their upper receivers. Best stuff out there.
You could also check their industry forum. Their stuff goes in/out of stock pretty frequently. I love my 16" Carbine upper, and my Dad just got a 16" Midlength (he hasn't gotten to the range yet).
ETA: I read on their industry forum that if you buy a rail from them at the same time as your upper they'd install it for you.
Their BCG's are also top notch.
