Thoughts on Spikes upper's. I am doing my first AR build an looking for a complete upper, 1in7 twist 16" or possible 18". Would like something with quad rails but that not a deal breaker. I don't want to spend tons of money. Looking for a more tactical set up.
Thanks for any suggestions and comments.

spikes is one of the best ones around i have several of their products and have a complete upper and lower on the way. fit and finish are great and they pay great attention to detail and i love there SAR rail.
and if you do order from them id suggest upgrading to the Nickle boron BCG best upgrade for an upper IMHO.

The 10.5" I got from AIM has never had a malfunction.  Currently on a pistol lower but will be an SBR when I get off my ass and submit the paperwork.......

GTG. Function and accuracy has been excellent on both of mine.

I love my upper from spikes.  Its a good barrel, and I like the 12" BAR rail- lighter weight than I expected.
They are good to go.  Just expect a bit of wait time

Just what I wanted to hear
Thanks for the input. Ordered a Spikes lpk today to install into an AGP lower.
Planing on purchasing a 16" complete upper.

I've done quite a bit of research, reading forums and customer reviews on Spikes tactical and saw one in a local shop here in GA.  The clerk that helped me was retired Army and just retired as a cop.  He said they fly off the shelves as soon as they get them in.  I was impresses enough to order a complete upper and lower from Spikes.  Too bad I'll have to wait a month or two to get it but i think its worth the wait.  I got a 10% LEO discount also.  I think Spikes is right up there with Colt and Bravo Co.  I was gonna go Daniel Defense but the pricing of Spikes won me over.
