Is there a big difference between these two companies A1 Uppers? The Fulton is about $15 more. What are the pros and cons of each? Is there any other company I should look at? Thanks in advance.

From what I've heard they may be the same uppers, Fulton buys them from DPMS or something.

are you getting the one with the brass deflector and forward assist? dont think dpms offers the slabside uppers anymore.

I believe Fulton is the only ones offering a slabside M16 style upper receiver. I bought one for a project from them, it worked out very well.

I’m very happy with the A1 style upper I purchased from Bushmaster. Only draw back is I wasn’t looking for an upper with brass deflector, no one else had what I wanted in stock. You might check with Del-Ton.

Yea, if I remember correctly I think I suggested Del-Ton to you as well. Too bad they stopped selling those uppers.

Thanks for the help guys. I wasn't really wanting the forward assist or the brass deflector. So I guess I pretty well made my own mind of then, didn't I?

So, Fulton comes highly recommended? Thanks again.

Brownells has a slick-sided A1 upper. Mine just came in today for my retro build.
