i agree with cane. the rra i rank in your getting more value for the money than just about any other product.

ill reiterate: they are definately worth the wait. the long wait times are because they offer a superb product for a very reasonable price. ive never seen a rra rifle have issues. my new rra nm upper is shooting 3/4 moa at 200yds open sights atm.

i could have spent a few more hundred $$ for a white oak upper but i dont think i would be getting better groups.

Awesome Jon, that's the kind of info. I'm looking for. Accuracy is my first interest in this build rather than just bottom dollar price.

As I said to Canebrake, the RRA is my first preference, but the Del-Tons caught my interest.

im using a nm upper its designed to be extremely accurate with a 20" wilson cryo air gauged barrel free float handguards with handloaded ammo. your not going to get that level of accuracy with a 16" short sight radius carbine profile chrome moly/chrome lined barrel. but its not going to be bad at all

If price is the #1 consideration, I'd look at a milspec PSA or Spikes upper. So even though I was born in NC I'd skip Del-Ton and head south to SC or Florida...

Even if Daniel Defense and BCM (the best choices I think) are out of your price range don't scratch off midlength and 1:7 twist...
