ALG ACT $65. JP Enterprises lightened trigger springs $10. 4-4.5 lb pull. You may have to lighten the hammer for positive strikes. Very easy to do.

Voila single stage $75 trigger.

Probably what I will wind up doing...

Looked into the BCM uppers... They are nice but the only one I'm liking is the one with the la rue quad rail and it's pricy... Also doesn't include bcg or charging handle...

I found a DD m4 urg v4 omega x 9.0 without sights for 830.00... 2 things about this tho are it's a m4 profile barrel... And it's carbine length... I was trying to stay lightweight and with a mid length gas system... Is this really a big difference? I think the LW to the non LW upper is only 6 oz difference....

Yeah, about six ounces or a little less. I'd hold out for LW and midlength, and there's nothing wrong with going to BCM for this. Shop around and see what's in stock at BCM and G&R Tactical (which has free shipping on BCM). I have both DD and BCM and am happy with both.

Yeahh I'm just liking this price on aim surplus so much nothing I find can come closer without giving up a chromed cold hammer forged barrel and the LW..... I hope aim gets them in soon... I'll keep looking around but it seams like many places are limited stock... Stupid Obama/12-21-2012!!!!!!!

Have you looked at Smartgunner for DD? They have good prices but it seems DD is out of stock a lot these days.

govt profile just means it has relief cuts to mount a m203 grenade launcher. means nothing for a civilian rifle other than a few extra ounces over a civilian lw barrel. its not good or bad just looks kinda cool

I've heard a lot of complaints concerning smartgunner. Id use caution before ordering.

Specificaly shipping time and lack of communication. Granted I think it was old info but troubling nonetheless.

They say on the website that they are custom hand put together guns but I still don't see how it would take that long... I had to wait 67 days for my rock river but that was for the entire weapon from order to delivery... Wish u could choose just to ship the parts unassembled to save time and a few bucks

The only complaints I heard of was from people who weren't happy w/ the wait times. DD builds certain models/parts in large runs. I received mine in a month. some a couple. If you ordered an upper w/ a certain part and they had just ran out of that part it could be a couple cycles before they ran that part again. In that case your build waited until the parts to complete it were ready. They have sense build a new larger facility to meet such demands. The problem lies in the fact that demand keeps growing.
