im pretty sure my next AR will be a rock river in 308.
Where did you hear this?

I NEED 2 UPPERS!

I'd like at least one to really put it out to the 500 yd line. I'm not opposed to RRA, STAG, BUSHMASTER, ARMALITE, etc.

Piston driven is desirable for one possibility.

Basically Right now I have 2 complete lowers and they need to be rifles, either to sell or save while I have my BCM repaired and re-barreled.

So help a brother out! Where's all the sweet deals going down at? Any blackfriday leftovers.
Take a look at SmartGunner.com

That's where I'm looking right now, but I haven't heard anything as to the quality of their uppers, only that they have great barrels.

I have some Spike's lowers, but chances are I may turn those into back up/for sale guns and start with a set of receivers from the same company.

Any suggestions?

Diggs, I have a CMMG M4 LEP II upper. M4 profile piston upper, 16" barrel. I've added a Midwest Industries freefloat quad rail. I'm changing this configuration and would sell the upper complete if you might be interested.

I have a complete NM upper from them. Long heavy stainless freefloated barrel, on their upper with a NM bolt and carrier. This thing will shoot 500 yards. It's a beauty, and it shoots as good as it looks.

That's a sweet set up, Russ, but both of my current ARs are similar barrel length, etc. This next one has to be a 20" rifle that can put it out there. I'm always looking though so feel free to PM me a roundabout number.
