Can I turn my A2 upper into a flat top?

You can buy a new flat top reciver for $90 and switch them out. It is not complicated, but does require a few tools.

That's how the original concept came to be, gunsmiths milled them down and installed weaver bases. Then someone decided to make it easier- Flattop upper. Buy one it is simple and you don't have to be a machinist to do it right.

Yeah I looked into this as well as I had an extra A-2 upper and though hey it would be a cheap way to get a flat top. After checking around it was no savings at all unless you are a machinist and have your own mill. Just buy a flat top, you will be happier with the results. IPSC_GUY sends

That is the same situation that I am in, I have an extra A2 upper and was trying to decide what to do with it. Any suggestions?

Sell it on the EE for $100. Buy a brand new flattop off the EE for [url=http://www.jobrelatedstuff.com/forums/topic.html?b=7&f=22&t=119504]$88[/url].

This was my first Bushy (Vmatch 20). This is how they came- from the factory! [img]http://www.boomspeed.com/kisara/A1toA3.jpg[/img] It was the hot ticket- when it was new.
