Gonna end up buying a complete upper so could just get the complete from DD with light rail without having to worry about special tools.

Any better complete uppers for same price as that worth considering? Wanting 16" barrel and 12" rail or tube. Weighing info

Is the Spikes BCG that much cheaper than DD? While not required, it isn't a bad idea to stick with the same brand for the bolt, barrel/upper - to improve your chances for proper headspacing. Again not required but many of us do it. And it does look better when you're showing it off if the bolt and upper are the same brand. Those DDs on the bolt are noticable as is the spider.

I'd pony up the extra 48 bucks for that DD mark without even thinking about it My buddies DD M4 brings him home safe from every deployment so needless to say i'd be proud to own their products
