Broke, I had a Spikes and really liked it.

Mta, DS Arms makes good FALs but are not know for putting together quality ARs.

Mj what would you do.? DD or PSA or Spikes? You helped me along last time. Whaddabout now? I don't want another $2200 DD tricked out slaughter rod, but I want something I can get dirty, literally throw around, and she'll want more...suggestions? If DD is all that will do it, then that's fine. Just wanting to know what my options are...

BCM lightweight 16", 13" Troy or Samson tube. It works for me quite well.

If you are interested, I have this AAC upper with KAC URX Rail for a sub $1000 300BLK:



I also have a couple 16" CMMG 300BLK with Stainless Steel Barrel and FSB coming soon (Pricing to be determined, but definitely sub 1k)

If you want to splurge, I have a 14.5" Noveske with pinned AAC Blackout Flash Hider and Stainless Barrel @ $1325



Otherwise, any of the brands mentioned in this thread by others should do just fine.

another option is to use the Templar Custom FastRail, which will allow you to swap between 5.56 and 300 BLK with a quick barrel swap.



Both barrels will need to use low-profile gas blocks and the proprietary barrel nuts (one is included with the rail).


Money saver tip: look at my signature below

Sorry my mistake. I forgot you were wanting a .300 BLK. BCM doesn't make one. PSA has a nice sub $500 upper.

The uppers listed above are really nice but definitely on the upper end of the price scale.

I would rather have two seperate uppers or rifles than use the Templer Rail. Ive watched the install video and IMO it seems slow. Faster than installing a barrel on a receiver the old fashion way but much slower then popping 2 pins.
