Which would you prefer? Pay a little extra for a full noveske upper, or this build using several brands.
Full Noveske N4 light carbine 14.5"
Daniel Defense 10" Lite Rail/handguard
VLTOR upper w/ forward assist
Young phosphate bolt carrier
CMMG 14.5" 1:7 (no M203 notches)
I would save about $200-300 if I built the complete upper listed above, rather than going with Noveske. I would also have a slightly lighter rifle, given the railing.
Can the CMMG barrel be compared to that of a Noveske N4 light? Both have a 1:7 twist.
* Great barrel
* Matched with my noveske lower
* Comes assembled, only 1 place to deal with/order from
* heavier rails
* more expensive
For only 200-300 more you get a better barrel steel with thicker chrome lining and a good reputation or accuracy. Plus you will have a matching rifle. I would go all Noveske if I could.
It is your money however, but the Noveske is better.
Can't go wrong with the Noveske.
