I am getting ready to build an AR-15 on a RRA stripped receiver. I'm considering kits from J&T, M&A and Model 1. The upper I would like is a "dissapator" format, 16" post-ban, no brake. From what I can gather, M&A has the best price, $440 on a mid-length handguard (not a dissapator, I know, but 2.5" better than a CAR length handguard), Model 1 is right behind M&A in price at $450, and J&T is highest at $539.

I am planning to get an A2 buttstock, standard trigger, standard bolt carrier.

Based on your experience, what would be my best choice in terms of kit quality and service?

I have some time to think this one over. Thanks for the advice!

I bought the M&A upper (which appears to be an RRA) mid-length upper, and I'm very happy with it. Functions perfectly, looks great, no 'off-center" sight problems, etc. Here's a pic: [img]http://personal.riverusers.com/~brogers/M15A2.jpg[/img]

Model 1 Sales has performed well for my builds. I'm on my third kit and their products have always been first rate as has their customer service... When I finish my third, I'll let you know how it went (Should be here today)!

I had my new J&T 16" Car w/tac brake on Bushmaster lower out today for first time.Fired 80 rounds of ammo, no problems.I can't believe how good it shoots,and fit & finish is supurb! I will get some Pic's to send in. I started looking at this forum to see what was best way to go myself about a mo. ago and everything pointed to J&T! I would def buy from them again!Great Product!
