Two BM uppers have served me without fail for thousands of rounds.

Bushmaster!!!

I love my Fulton Armory M4 upper. Same quality of Bushmaster and RRA but alittle cheaper. My .02
Link Posted: 8/24/2004 10:40:58 AM EST
The company that makes the M4.

Duh.

Colt, LMT, Bushmaster

LMT

Colt so far is the best I have seen.

If you find an upper that is marked M4, and is not a Colt, let me know.

My postban BM has done very well with just about anything I fed it. Even a steady diet of wolf.

I'm using a RRA upper and it has functioned flawlessly. Top notch quality in a RRA.
Link Posted: 8/24/2004 11:30:18 AM EST
Hmmm... M4 is made by COLT, and COLT makes the best M4.

He asked about making an M4-orgery in the body of the message.

Bushmaster is the correct answer.

I have an LMT and love it. Go see Wes, he will make you a poor man.

The title of his thread ---> M-4 Uppers who makes the best?

Bushmaster is incorrect, they don't make a M4 upper.

M4 upper = 1/7 twist with M4 ramp feeds 14.5" barrel.

BM = 1/9 twist no M4 ramp feeds 16.1" barrel.

Colt is the correct answer.

I accept your apology.


ETA: Oh yeah! and parkerized under FSB.
Link Posted: 8/24/2004 11:40:54 AM EST
LMT would be my second choice.

My BM M4-STYLE upper has a 14.5" barrel.

The 1/9 twist is BETTER for M193.

..along with no funky-size holes or PC sear block garbage.

I didn't know uppers had sear blocks.
Link Posted: 8/24/2004 12:10:59 PM EST
I don't know about the feed ramps but this is 14.5" and has M4 profile.
Link Posted: 8/24/2004 12:24:34 PM EST
Ok,

Colt has the M4 upper.

Bushmaster has a "copy upper".

HMC2RN,

If you want a M4 TYPE upper, look at the options available to you.

What ammo do you want to shoot?
How close to a M4 Type upper do you want?
Do you wanna pay a litttle more for a Colt? To get the best quality.

LMT, BM, RR, fill in the blank__________ all make M4 type uppers.

You asked who makes the BEST.

The answer to M4 or M4 type is Colt.

They make the BEST.

More money=more quality when you buy a colt?

You guys crack me up. If you buy a colt then you just dont know.

Bushmaster would be the way to go.

Colt is the only manufacturer of the M4.

Colt & LMT


Bushmaster


RRA, Armalite, & DPMS


in that order.

I would go with Colt first with LMT a close second. It seems to be a little know fact that there are dimensional differences between the rail on the Colt M4 upper with Colt M4 barrel front sight base height compared to other manufacturers. Lewis Machine & Tool is the major upper subcontractor for Colt, Bushmaster and a few others.

Not always the case.... some times more = paying just for a big brand name

This IS one of those times!

Yeap, you tell that to our troops over in the Mideast.


Hey you! Yes you over there with the M4. Stop shooting for a minute, and let me tell you how much better you could have done without using that gun, based on name alone.
Link Posted: 8/24/2004 7:50:52 PM EST
I am rather partial to all three of my Olympic Arms uppers, although two are 20" and one is 16" they have never failed me. I routinely out shoot every other person at range qualifications and often shoot clean with no misses.

I believe the Olympic barrels are some of the more accurate out there.
Link Posted: 8/24/2004 8:50:31 PM EST
only Colt and LMT make true M4 uppers

TECHNICALLY only Colt because M4 is a Colt trademark.... but LMT M4 uppers have the same exact features as Colt.

To me, the real question is do you want a 1/7 twist, chrome lined barrel? If so, your options are limited.

Bushmaster & DPMS have seen the error of their 1:9 ways and do offer 1:7 Brls on a somewhat limited basis. That said a Colt 1:7 is always my first choice.

Those are special order, correct? I was hoping to avoid paying a premium for a Colt LE6920 upper this Fall. If Bushmaster & DPMS are starting to carry 1/7 barrels, I might just wait a while.

Not really "special order" Per se. CMMG always has DPMS 1:7 brls. Pete in NH usually has Bushmaster 1:7 Brls. That's where i got mine.

Actually, The M4 I was issued last week has a M4 marked Diemaco upper on it. Just thought I'd throw that in there to stir the kettle.
