I'm going to change out my A2 upper receiver in favor of the A3 flattop.

I was wondering what the best match for this would be, for fit and color. The rifle is a not a safe queen, so I'm not looking for something with uber-tight match-quality tolerances, but I eventually want to put some battle optics on it, and carry-handle-mounted optics are too high for my taste.

I want the upper to be t-marked, and that's why I'm not going with Bushmaster.

What do you think of the CMMG upper? What others might fit my needs? Thanks for any input!

I have a CMMG rail upper and a Bushmaster lower. The color is similar between the two, but the CMMG upper is slightly higher gloss with its coating. Overall I would say it is a close enough match.

I had a Bushy A2 and for the longest time I wanted to get an A3 upper instead but I didn't want to pay $180 from Bushy and I wanted my upper and lower to match in color. I don't keep mine as a safe queen and I couldn't care less when the thing gets all; scratched up but I like my upper and lower to match. I searched for months and I kept hearing CMT and White Oak Armarment. One of the guys here had the same problem Bushy A2 and wanted a matching upper so he tried the White Oak and it matched perfect. So I eventually went with the White Oak about 3 weeks ago and the match is perfect. The upper is a little dry when you get it back and you will probably need to put some CLP on it but it really is a perfect match.

Go into the EE and look under uppers there are pics of the other guys bushy and mine on the last page. (look under ADCO white oak armarment uppers)

ADCO is the only company that sells WOA and they install it at no extra charge, it cost me $109 with shipping

I have two Bushmaster lowers using CMT RAS#'d A3 uppers and they match perfectly.

I bought both upper receivers from Denny, he has the CMT's above for $95 shipped.

Here's a pic of the match on my M4gery. Bushy lower with CMT RAS #'d Upper receiver.

HighStrung I know you said that CMT RAS#'d A3 matches perfectly but can you say that it matches 100%.

I aslo have BM lower and I don't want to pay BM price for the upper but I want my lower and upper to match 100% .

If there is a difference, I sure as shit can't tell.

HS1 that is a nice setup you got there, dude.

Is that an MI handguard? I want to get one like yours.

Is that CMT upper T-marked?
