That very upper (16" 1:7 FN barrel, carbine length gas, plus a $180 MI handguard) has been up for sale several times in the last week or two...at least 4 times that I'm aware of, probably a couple that I didn't see. I've actually bought two of them during two seperate times
when they came up for sale. It'll probably be up again. Even if I wanted a middy (I too prefer them), I'd probably (okay...well, in fact I did
) jump on it as far as a reasonably priced "bird in the hand" option.
I've also got emails from BCM and AIM Surplus regarding quality uppers that have been available at reasonable prices. AIM had the 16" Spikes with
charging handle and M16 bolt for just over $500 I think. Wish I'd have been sitting at my computer when the email came in.
So yes...good upper packages are out there. But you'd best be prepared to jump on them the moment they hit the "virtual" shelves.
