I currently own a pre-ban Eagle Arms upper and would like to get a stripped flat top upper that has the Colt-grey finish on it.

Does anyone know if JT's Dist. FNs have the colt grey finish, the quality of the upper, and have you purchased from JT before.

What other recommendations do you guys have in obtaining a Colt flat top upper/minus barrel or with barrel for a reasonable price.

Thanks.

I have bought two J&T FN uppers. Quality was excellent, and reliability was superb.

But they are as black as they come.

FN parts will for the most part be the current black. The late 80's early 90's FN contract parts are closer to the grey finish but they were A1 or A2 uppers.

Thanks for the info guys, I am glad you guys told me before I ordered one.

Does anyone know of any other brand or dealers that sell the colt-grey like upper?

Anybody got any pics? I'm particularly interested in the pre-ban CAR uppers.

I've got one of their postbans...

I've also got a semi full write up on the BIY forums.. somewhere. The upper matches my RRA lower in color pretty much perfectly.

If it's any indication of its pedigree, it's got this peculiar marking on the rear sight:

J&T has some good stuff.
