Default Looking for a stripped upper

Hey there
I'm new to this forum. I have been looking and looking and can't find an upper that is reasonably priced. I don't need anything fancy just a stripped upper. Any help would be great. Thanks and sorry if this is a dumb post.
Thanks

Welcome to FTF this is a great forum with tons of people with tons of knowledge. As for the upper I'm in the same situation you're in. I have a complete lower that I've been waiting to slap an upper on, but with the way the AR market is these days you won't be able to find a good upper at a decent price. If I was you I'd do what I'm doing sit on it and wait till the $hit winds stop blowing and all the a-holes who paid twice what their rifles are worth, scap one up at a good price.

There are still uppers to be had at good prices. You just have to catch the right shop at the right time. This is VERY time consuming though!!!
