I got the exact same upper sweeper22 broke down by price. LW and gov't profile are the same price. Hammer forging (BFH) is what adds the extra $80.

Again, I'm no expert.

But these are sorta in my wheelhouse as I've strongly considered both for my own current build. I honestly don't think you'd be going wrong with either.

I think the BCM might be a bit trendier "name", while only spending an extra $30-40. I think the Spike's has the trendier BCG. Both should treat you well...and well, similarly. Buy whichever you'll take more pride in, because I don't think the quality of either will leave you wanting.

A similar Spike's upper setup may very well go on a future build for me. Like I said, I've just sorta got my heart set on BCM at this point.

@sweeper22: I cancelled the Spike's upper and changed my mind to BCM as u calculated they are about the same price. Since i don't own any BCM yet, so why not?. After browsing a while at BCM site, i found a complete DD upper with a 9.5 FSP Lite rail which i really like. It includes the BCG and CH (wish it's a GunFighter CH).

http://www.bravocompanyusa.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=DD%209021%20Upper%2 0Half

And it costs cheaper on this one as i have to purchase a rail if i were to get the BCM upper. All my ARs have DD rails, i just love their rails.
Oh well.. i can say no fate on BCM this time. I will replace my current DD V4 upper with this new upper. And probably going to sell the V4.

Anyway, thx man!

Default PSA- Vortex Strikefire

PSA has the Vortex Strikefire Red/Green dot scope for $50 off, and free S&H. So it's $119.99 delivered. Throw one on an extra AR...heck, for that price throw one on your 10/22, lever 30/30, or whatever.


DISCOUNT CODE: strike
EXPIRES: Sunday
