Vltor makes a great upper. I have one on another build they look good and work good. Just make sure you have a vice block for it because clamshells don't fit it for torquing the barrel. I have never used Scorpion Tactical, I'm sure they don't make the upper just re-stamp it. I just need to finish my pistol build. Im sure if you hold out for the Vtor it will be a couple of moths. If you have the patience , it will be worth it, it is my favorite upper I've used.

Amazon and eBay. Great prices and they do the searching for you. Amazon Prime, free second day air.

Not that I can think of. What are you looking to have done?

Full Auto,

There are some parts out there but the issue is the price! I was told by a friend who went to the Indianapolis Gun Show this weekend that Bolt Carriers Complete were bringing as high as $350. And Stripped Receivers were bringing $300-$350. Some complete uppers $750 followed by rifles at up to $2500.
I would suggest that you contact Hilltop Guns Inc. located at Colona IL. They are at the Indy Show and were selling Rock River Rifles manufactured by Rock River (Original Manufactured, Not Parts Guns) at 10% over MSRP. I spoke with Terry Douglas Saturday while he was at the show who owns Hilltop. And he advised they sold around 65 Rock River AR-15s on Friday afternoon when the show opened. And had 10 left at the table for Saturday and today's (Sunday) show!

WOW! 10% over MSRP today is unheard of.
