Got great answers to my last question, so here's another.

My AR-15 has a Armalite Eagle Arms 5.56 M15A2 lower, and a Colt 7.63X39 upper. If I want to change it to .223 (5.56), could I just buy a complete upper in .223 and swap it all out. Is that all there is to it?

Anybody have any recommendations on a good "starting" upper in .223? Don't need anything way fancy, just simple, reliable, and somewhat affordable.

yep, a complete upper with bcg will pin right on.

check the equipment exchange for good uppers
