I've been looking around and planning for a carbine build.

What I'm looking for is:

16'' barrel, chrome, threaded, phantom FS (Would prefer Govt but could live with M4 profile)
Daniel Defense or Larue 7'' (Havent decided which)
Flattop upper, LMT if i'm picky but no biggie
BUIS (Arms #40?) and Flip front sight (GG&G?)

I'll get the details sorted out but I still don't know where to go to get it ordered/assembled (lack of tools at this location... several months until funds available)

To put it more simply: Who will make me an upper that I customize WITHOUT charging me an arm and a leg to put it together?

Buddy of mine just got his custom upper from www.rbprecision.com It's looks great, and they charned a nominal fee for assembly. Customer service was great, and I guess the head armorer for Rock River moonlights and does RB's work.

That is almost exactly what I just had built. You MUST check out JTAC Supply I have two of his uppers now and extremely pleased. Don't pay the other guys way high prices.

I currently have one of his uppers here in Iraq and plan on having one (or more) built for me once I'm back in the States.

I bought a BM 1/7 M4 14.5" upper with a DD 7.0 rail from www.eaglefirearms.net. They DID NOT CHARGE for the rail install. Very low prices, very quick turn around, great communication and great people to deal with.

A big +1 for BravoCompanyUSA! Paul really takes the time to make sure you get what you want.

Very close to that. Just a change-up with a flip sight and bingo.

But I can't see how they arrive at the price they charge. When i customized one, I was lookin at almost $1100. When I did it out by hand it didn't look so painful... I'll have to check again

I paid $485 (plus shipping for the LMT M4 upper, $300 + $60 install for the DD Free float, plus $110 or so for the ARMS 40L. So for the upper only, it was $955 (not including the ACOG of course).

So, short of picking up components second hand, or at a serious discount, I believe you are in the $1,000 range for your upper. As you said, you would also need to add a front gas block and pop-up front site- so all together you would have about $1,200 in it.

But you would also have a first-class set up.

Another vote for ADCO. Got a customized M-4 upper from him. Very pleased, showed up 4 days after I ordered it.
