LOOKING TO BUY A QUALITY UPPER M-4 STYLE 16 IN. WHO DO YOU RECOMEND?

Stag is good.

Depends on what your needs are, or how many bells and whistles you want, or how much you care about "mil-spec" blah blah blah. If you just want a nice, simple, quality M4 upper, than the Stag is hard to beat. But certainly there are other choices.

Take your caps lock off please.

There are different types of barrels in length, material, and profile. Tell us what are you looking to do with it, and we can give you better input.

+1 for CMMG

The only real M4 upper is Colt.

That being said, I'd go for a CMT/Stag

I would get one of the new Bravo Company Mfg uppers. They look great, and are priced VERY competitively, especially considering what you get for the money. If I didn't have an M4 upper already (LMT, which I love) I'd get the Bravo upper. I'm probably going to get rid of my RRA midlength for the Bravo upper.

ETA-I don't think you will find any complaints about Paul (owner of Bravo Co). He provides impecable service.

Lancelot, haven't you read? M4 is now owned by the masses...No more of this Colt-only BS

That’s Weird

+1 for Colt LE 6920 would be the closest to the real M4.

Other brands are also pretty good with no particular ranking order:

Bushmaster
Bravo Company Mfg.
CMMG
LMT
Sabre Defence
Stag Arms/ CMT

There are others that I didn't mention.

Don't get Vulcan/ Hesse.

I like Bushmaster, but I have little expieriance with all the others, but my Bushmaster rifle has never let me down, and is now my go-to rifle. This is comming from an X AK man too.

I like my Colt M4 upper.

Perhaps so, BLouie - for the masses. But the masses cannot buy a genuine M4.

That would make the only REAL M4, a Colt (Real gun, that is. M4- the name- is OK to call your cat if you like)


But the thread starter asked about 16"ers, which means all bets are off on the name

What is the going rate for a Colt M4 upper? I thought they were the same price as all the other big name brands. ( I bought mine from a friend for a great price)
Link Posted: 1/9/2006 3:22:48 PM EDT
You can buy a complete rifle for almost what Colt charges for a complete upper.

So 425 is a good price. Wow good deal huh? Well, minus the bolt and carrier...
