I'm about a week away from ordering a new upper & have been confused lately about any differences berween the A3 (DPMS/CMMG) & the A4 (RRA/Adco). Are there any ?

They are the same. The military uses A4** to indicate the flat-top so some companies use that term. Other companies use A3 since A3 is next in line after A2. ** In the military, an M16A3 is identical to the M16A2 except for having a full auto selector instead of 3-round burst.

enigma1: Just FYI, I ordered the A4 RRA upper from ADCO on a monday, got it on friday. Fit and finish were great. Very black. Also ordered with ARMS#40. As I'm sure you know, ADCO has just about the best price on an upper with FA & dustcover installed ($90) with a $4 flat-rate shipping fee! Tex78 edutid cuz i cainnt spel guud

Hey Tex78 !!! That is the same thing I am going to order. You get the 16 or 20 ? I have heard nothing but good about Steve & Adco. ...........Paul
