Dice, Not to be difficult, but that is like asking what is a cool car. I really like the looks of the new Mustang Mach 1, but a few of the folks I have talked to HATE them. Not to mention, if you buy what someone else wants, you may regret it. However, I just got 2 RRA NM lowers from Pete, and my plan is to get one flat top upper from ADCO with the stainless M4 profile barrel, RRA press on fake FS, slimline SIR, and some type BUIS. Hopefully for an EOTech to follow as soon as the bank account allows. Many don't like the Stainless barrel for multiple reasons. I do, and it's my money. Second project will most likely start as an accessorized RRA Varminter upper and (hopefully) the 50mm ACOG somewhere down the road. Sheesh, I'm already kicking around 3 grand here......DANG, sometimes I hate this addiction!! Doc

If you are asking what is "In" right now, I'd say the SPR, followed by the M4 and then maybe a big bore upper. Cheapest path of the above would be the M4. It all depends on what kinda shooting you are going to do with it though. Tell us that, and we'll give you better answers.

Doc what's the reason some don't like stainless?

I like my RRA stainless upper. Quiets the "chrome , or go home crowd", because its more accurate and easy to clean. Its probably a bit heavier that the chrome moly barrels, but I don't mind.

Check out the uppers at [url]www.cmmginc.com[/url]. They have M4 uppers with the 1/7" chrome lined barrels in 14.5" and 16" for a good price.

ARMALITE puts out a nice M15A4 [b](T)[/b] Carbine SS upper, although it is not light. I just put one on an Oly lower. It is quite accurate out to 300 yards but the barrel isn't broken in yet. An M4 contour would be lighter but I believe in stainless on everything but knives. My $.02 [blue][url]http://www.armalite.com/[/url][/blue]

If you want a 16" 1:7 twist, Bushmaster is doing a special run just for ARFCOM. Talk to Hoplite for details.

The few comments I have heard were mainly due to the appearance of a stainless barrel on a black rifle "That doesn't look very tactical!" type stuff. Hey, I like the look, and what the heck, I don't own one yet. Good Nuff. Doc

I plan on having John Norrell do mine as he is only a couple hours away from me. A suppressor of his is another planned projekt when I save up some $$. I don't want it black, but will go with something tactical like OD green or greenish gray. I'd love to have a MARPAT one.

www.Del-ton.com has a special on a couple of different uppers in the $360-$430 price range, mostly M4 style, though I think they are heavy profile under the handguards.

The ultimate upper has already been figured out. [img]http://www.btammolabs.com/images/SPRgear/gear.jpg[/img]

Well, if you are hunting deer with it, then get a 7.62x39 upper...
