I am looking for an upper to put on a newly acquired pre-ban eagle rifle and have had a hard time finding a place that has what I'm looking for.


I want an A3 upper with a 14.5" M4 profile barrel and a Phantom FS permanently attached to the barrel, 1/9 twist, 5.56 chamber. Also has to be chrome lined. I would also like it to have the M4 feed ramp cuts (I've had trouble finding people that offer this).

I thought about building it to get exactly what I wanted, but then I realized I would have no idea about what I was doing.


Can you point me in the right direction?

Sounds like you need to order a Bushmaster upper for the 1 in 9 twist. Or, if you can use a 1 in 7 twist, these folks will be happy to help you. link: http://www.autoweapons.com/products/accessories.html

The easiest way to get this set up is from [url=ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=7&f=22&t=174919]CMMG[/url] on the EE, but they are 1/7 twist. ( a better choice IMHO)

Sounds like an Armalite would fit your needs perfectly. I'd contact [url]www.quanticoarms.com[/url]

If you're looking for a preban Eagle Arms upper in that configuration, stop looking. You'll never find one. Your best bet is to find a preban Eagle Arms flattop upper that matches your lower, and swap out the barrel. Or you could simply buy a RRA, Bustmaster, DPMS, etc. upper in that configuration and live with the color mismatch.

I am not looking for an eagle arms upper. I e-mailled Bushmaster about the M4 feedramp cuts but they said their uppers don't have the cuts becasue colt has the pattent on it

Because of the colt patent, the only ways to get this is to 1)have the upper built from a colt upper receiver, or 2)send the barreled upper to a smith and have them cut.
