Just buy a BCM. You will never know the difference. I gave up on finding a MUR months ago.

Damn, they should limit buying to only 1, ppl are hoarding things these days.  Would have been nice to pick up on of those but I wasn't even on the waiting list. I wish they would still offer their billet version. Maybe if I'm lucky the old billet version will pop up on the ee or gunbroker some day, doubtful though

They are back up! 3 of them....

Glad you got it You needed it more then me. I was gonna use it for when LWRC finally gave into me begging to do conversions again so I could send it to them for my 6.8 SBR build They told me they would do it but not at this time so I guess I can wait, but i am for sure using a VLTOR MUR fell in love the first time I saw it!!

+1 I wonder if they accidentally posted it as in stock when it never was to begin with?

haha, oh well. too good to be true huh?
Link Posted: 5/1/2009 5:14:57 PM EDT
well, the three more added were a computer malfunction. good PR though.

We're very sorry we had to cancel your order, we experienced a computer malfunction that displayed three inaccurately in stock for a short time.  We received a total of five of these upper receivers, and we had dozens of people on the website all trying to purchase them, as well as a few customers in the store trying to purchase them.

Again, I'm very sorry for any inconvenience we caused, and if there is anything else I can do for, please let me know.

Get me a VLTOR MUR! hahaha
Link Posted: 5/1/2009 5:42:46 PM EDT
Give it a couple days, some douche will sell them, double the price of course..........not like they need them!

And besides, you'll be helping them out, they'll say they need rent money or they bought them for thier friends builds and they changed thier minds!
Link Posted: 5/1/2009 5:59:20 PM EDT
Maybe someone is looking out for you by you not getting one this time around.
This is going to be heresy but I have done two builds on them, one in 6.5 and one in 6.8, both SPRs.  The 6.5 on a billet, the 6.8 on the forged version.  Honest to God I do not see the big deal with the VLTOR uppers other than they do look nice and it is just one more cup of Cool-Aid to drink.  I quit using them and went back to using standard A3 and M4 uppers on my more recent builds.  It's not that they are too expensive, it is that they are too expensive for what you get.  I honestly do not see where all that extra money is going except in their bank account, especially since they are now forged just like everyone else's upper.  I still had to true the front of both receivers to make them perfectly square to the carrier and barrel, so I don't see where a replaceable FA is worth over $100 extra money and I cannot tell that they are any stiffer or more accurate.  And on top of that, the top rail is slightly higher than normal because while an A3 or M4 upper has its rail fit flush with a DD Ultra-Lite handguard, the VLTOR MUR sets just a little bit higher, but high enough that you had better not mount one scope ring on the receiver and one on the forend, unless you want a dinged or canted scope.
They are excellent uppers and look great, I will not argue that, but IMO they are way overpriced and the A3 and M4 uppers are serving me just as well as the the two MUR units and do so at less than half the cost.  But then again, I don't get to drink the Cool-Aid any more.  JMO and worth exactly what you pay for it.

need some cheese to go with that wine?

people get them for what they are, a different product than 99% of the rest.
I didn't "true" mine up and can easily get 1/2- 3/4 moa, so truing is obviously a waste.
you buy what you like and we'll buy what we like.

there are 2 crowds

those that like billet

those that push thier opinion that they are a waste.


I like billet and it's my money, don't try to prove I wasted it.
Link Posted: 5/1/2009 7:11:26 PM EDT
wow, I didn't know that the rail actually sits higher than a quadrail, this will be my first MUR. I have a DDM4 rail, so if your lite is different then mine will be too. Trueing? I didn't follow that, trueing the upper to the barrel and carrier? plz, more info.

"billet" sure is a fancy word - they must be better

Ooops, sorry I have billet. forgot they dropped it and went forged.

MURs are still nice
Link Posted: 5/2/2009 9:18:34 AM EDT
Does anyone think this may be an indication that Vltor may have released a batch of MUR (and VIS) uppers recently?  *crosses fingers*
