Opinions vary of course, but a flattop will offer more versatility than an A2. There is nothing that an A2 can do that a flattop cannot.

If you ever intend to mount an optic the flattop will save you some headaches. As far as brands go, when I don't want to spring for a Colt I tend to buy LMT, Rock River Arms, and Bushmaster. Supposedly CMT uppers are a great value as well, but since I don't own one I can't comment. Board sponsor CMMG has an excellent reputation here and offers top quality uppers as well.

I buy my LMT uppers from Denny at Global Tactical, and ADCO has a section on their site where you can build custom configured Rock River uppers. Adco's build your own link is HERE

I use A1 or A3 (flattop), I don't even consider the A2 as an option.

thanks for the input,

ive been looking at RRA's and armalites as well as a few bushmasters. I am not sure If I want the a2 right now or the flat top, but like you said, the flat top seems more versatile.

ill check out the links and see what some of these companies have,

thanks

Plus 1 for RRA uppers. I have several and am very happy with them all. The A3 uppers are more versatile and you can always go with a A2 carry handle.

My vote goes for a LMT flattop from Dennys Guns. He has a few on the exchange board at a really good price, but you will need to call to confirm it. I got one last week, and it is just sick, in a good way.
