Just finished my 16" A2 build tonight. Bought a DPMS forged lower, ordered a 16" A2 HBAR kit with the fake comp (awesome btw) from M&A. One word about M&A, I have bought from them at the Indy gunshow many times, but this is my first mail order from them... I called Wed. at 3:30 pm, and my order showed up Fri. at 10:00 am. Even though I live in the same state about 4 hours away, they got my order processed, packed and shipped lightning fast. Everything was excellent quality, with all parts fitting snug but not overly tight into my lower. The fit between my upper and lower is the absolute best of any of my rifles, including a factory RRA DCM. Color matches perfect, and you have to look real close at the fake flash hider to see that it isn't an A2 hider. I am kinda funny, I don't really mind a 20" with a naked muzzle, but I can't stand the look of a 16" without something on the end. I don't really care for the extra blast and noise of a brake with fist sized holes angled every which way either. M&As fake fits the bill perfectly. Now the best part........my oldest son, 12 yrs. old, helped old dad every step of the way. He had been studying the armorers manual for the last week until we had all the parts on hand. He actually did 80% of the build. He was every bit as careful and patient as I would have been. I don't know who is prouder, him or me. Now off to the range Sunday. He is well schooled in shooting the ARs already, and breaking this one in will be his turn. Try to get some pics up later.

Sounds sweet. I'm looking at the 20" with the fake press on fh. I totally agree with the bare muzzle or noisy brake issue.
