Default Complete 20 inch Upper Reciever

I am looking for Complete 20 inch upper in 5.56. I want something with a gas block and preferably flattop with integrated free float handguard.

Any advice where to look or what brand may suite my need?

Long range target shooting. Low profile gas block that is covered by handguard. 20 or 24 inch barrel.

Only accessories that will be added are a scope (M223 4-16x44 BDC 600) and a bipod (which I have not picked out)

Any advice on a bipod?

best bang for the buck accuracy wise is the rra varmint uppers. they are stainless 1/8 twist air gaged cryoed wilson barrels with either flat top or eop rails. for your scope a flat top is sufficient.

i own one of their national match uppers same barrel and i routinely shoot .5 moa to just under 1 moa up to 300 yards (max at the range i shoot at) with open sights.

the rra uppers are hard to beat for accuracy in a complete out of the box upper

Thanks so much John. That looks like it will fit my ticket. It's a little more than I wanna spend but has everything I need on it out of the box to mount a scope and bipod.
