Your will need a rear sight for the new upper, the other parts are transferable, instructions are easy. [url=ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=3&f=4&t=152822]how hard is it really to completly build an upper from scratch?[/url]

So there arent any parts that will be destroyed when I remove the flattop?

As long as you don't go "WEC" with it, and take it easy, you'll be fine.

I got the "Unit And Direct Support Maintenance Manual", anybody know what page(s) this procedure is on?

So pretty much what I do is remove the gas tube, use a barrel wrench to remove the barrel, and then just tighten, loosen, tighten, loosen, tighten the barrel on the new upper, install gas tube?
