I know some have leaked onto the market... Anyone know anywhere that they are in stock? Any tips on finding one? I really want a FN M-16A2 upper! I've been checking the EE, but no luck thus far...

thanks!

CDNN sold them a few months ago, best bet is to find someone who bought one.

You may wanna call Sherluk Marketing & Trading & visit their website. They told me on tx a while back they sell surplus FN upper receivers with Wilson barrels. I ordered a 11.5 hbar upper & put a few hundred rounds down range earlier today with zero probs. I dunno how I could tell if it's actually FN or not, but I don't really care at this point since it functions like I need it to. It has the key hole (Cerro FOrge) receiver marking. I posed the "FN or not" question about SM&T here several weeks ago & everyone gave them a thumbs up.

Realize that most, if not all, of the "FN" uppers you see are not really FN uppers.

Not that it really matters, other than not getting ripped off.

Got one from FN a few months back. Hold your horses, they said they should get a few more in. Just keep sharp.

You bought an upper from FN?

Why do I have trouble believing this?

According to Del-Ton, uppers they sell are FN.

A2 FN uppers should be showing up 'out there'

The mil is either going A4 or converting to M4, depending...

The end result is A2 uppers on the surplus market...
