Windham weaponry has carbine flat top uppers in that price range as does RRA and PSA. Availability is limited at this time, windham is a new player and isn't sold out yet. Definitely worth a look, picked up a stripped barreled upper myself.

If you can add $158 to your budget a BCM would be my choice.

i can't go over 500 bucks cause that's the max limit on my card and im rebuilding my credit (used to have good credit but if ya don't use it you loose it) so I have to use the card to make the purchase

what bout KB manufacturing? anybody here heard good things about them cause I've never even heard of them other than an ad in shotgun news

they're the most affordable that I've found they have an upper that fits the look im going for that only costs 435 plus shipping (wonder how much shipping is gonna be?)

Don't forget to include the local FFL fee from where you go to pick it up.
