Look nice to me, maybe in a 1:8 though?...

Thanks AB82, I can do 1:8 in non fluted now, Will see what I can do "flute" wise soon. A 1:7 chrome line is on the horizon. Robert

I just built one just like it, I would have rather bought it already put together. I did mine with a fake brake to cut down on noise and such, but I really like your project, would it be chrome lined

It is a excellent muzzle rise compensator, I am not going to lie and tell you it is music to the ears, it is nowhere near the Armalite three port of old or the Y comp, I would say in the lines of the Wilson three port mil style. It has 6 30-40 degree forward porting holes and two angled main ports Robert

Would a standard front sight be available as an option? I can't stand folding fronts.

Heck, I'd be in for one. IF they are 5.56 chambered w/chrome lined barrels.

Yes I will deduct 15 for use of a standard front sight I have the barrels in stock with front sight ready to build, I will also build them on my new RRA engraved uppers, can use a UTE also Robert [url]www.rbprecision.com[/url]

Robert, I don't want to guess. What's the barrel length ??

Looks good - I'd buy it at that price. (Of course, I'd buy it quicker if it cost less... [:D] - JK, the price seems very fair.)
Link Posted: 10/15/2003 2:24:49 PM EDT
Sounds like a deal to me.

Another vote for a faster twist; 1/8 or better. Otherwise it looks great.

16", Plus the additional length of the perm attached brake, I also have these in preban and preban with no lug (for those who want to put on a different brake) Robert

looks good... i'd buy one with the regular front sight tower as well... can u post a pic of the upper on a.... lower [:D] one more thing... the color of the upper looks SUPER black, that is good... however the color of the handguards appears to be a lighter shade in the pics... is it just the pics? maybe my monitor...

ditto
Link Posted: 10/15/2003 11:41:49 PM EDT
I'd like to see one in 1/7 since most of my handloads tend to use heavier bullets. Looks great though [:)]
Link Posted: 10/16/2003 5:50:20 AM EDT
hey id like to know if this could be done in a 20" upper
Link Posted: 10/16/2003 6:44:03 AM EDT
I'd Buy one!!
Link Posted: 10/16/2003 7:09:29 AM EDT
Can you tell me how much it weighs? Tnx
Link Posted: 10/16/2003 7:19:01 AM EDT
Looks like a grat upper. I would consider it for my next purchase.

TPS there is a variation between the upper and the tube, we just met with YHM and are going to be offering some trick products on our customs, they have some serious, serious cool stuff in hiding. AR15.com will be the first to see them. Robert

Very nice, I'd buy one for sure.
Link Posted: 10/17/2003 7:33:06 PM EDT
I'd buy one in a faster twist 20" chrome-lined!
Link Posted: 10/17/2003 10:54:56 PM EDT
Looks like a nice set-up! I might suggest a standard front sight post; The upper looks like a CQB accessory and a front sight post is alway a nice option for co-witnessing (with a 1x optic) or for using the front post alone as a "quick" aiming system for fast target aquisition at close range. (a prior service excercise). It also save money for the end user in that they would not have to lay out an additional $75-$100 for a front post to mount on the 'pic' rail. If a long range optic is used it will see "past" the standard front sight post anyways. -just a thought but it does look like a high quality and good looking upper... i would be proud to show it off. As a side note: I must admit that I have a CQB type Carbine with a fluted H-bar (among others), but I have often wondered if I should have built it with an M4 barrel? I don't think there is a right or wrong answer but, when I compare it some of my M4's they weigh less and are easier to manuver (a plus for a carbine). They are all semi-auto so I have not seen problems with an overheated "barrel whip"? .... But fluted does look way COOL! What is your preference?
