I got Bushmaster carry handle off the EE in a trade that is real nice.
I've heard DPMS has nice ones. I'd stay away from the cheapo ones from the discount dealer type places.

Another important factor to consider... Which ever make you decide to go for, be sure to get the correct height to match your FSB...

what do you mean? i have a flattop 16" car with an A2 front sight . what different heights do they have for front sight s?

Carry handles come in two different heights... One is mil-spec and the other is commercial... Same goes for the FSB, one is stamped with the letter "F" and the other isn't... The one with the "F" stamp is mil-spec and has a .040" taller difference at the FSP shelf...

I suggest getting the same CH that was made by the manufacturer of your upper/lower for best fit & blend of finish if possible

Is your barrel a Bushmaster? If so you won't find an "F" on the FSB, only a crown. In addition to Bushmaster's carry handle (obviously), Rock River makes a detachable carry handle that is quality and should work with "F" or crown marked FSB's. There is also the option of buying a taller front site post (about 8 bucks). Hope this helps.
