I plan on building my first AR. JT Distributing gets good reviews and will get the business. I want a plinker - 16' barrel with A2 stock. I want to keep this inexpensive, but am willing to spend the money to do it right on a budget. My next AR will be a higher grade of rifle.
My Question - Is there any significant difference in performance (or use) between the generic kit 16" upper @ $289.95, the Expedition 16" upper @ $329.95, or the Dissapator 16" upper @ $379.95? Please let me know.
BTW - The lower is a RRA I bought locally (new) for $100 at the end of Ausgust. They had been $130. I went back two weeks ago, now they are $150. There was a claim that RRA had a price increase. I don't know about a price increase. I was ready to pay $130, but at $150 I paused.
