Default new upper

okay, so i know what i want. just having trouble finding it.
i love the stag 3g.. the SS fluted barrel and all.. but i cant forsee myself spending a good 825 on just an upper. i saw a dpms somewhere before but cant for the life of me find the site now. i also checked PSA. the only SS they had was 6.8spc.. you guys have any leads?
im looking for an upper that is 14.5 to 16in. SS barrel fluted is great but not a must. some sort of picatinny rail... preferably 6 in.

Hey JJ, are you looking for a stainless, wylde chambered, precision type upper?
Do you want a front site post or lo pro gas block?

Isn't the stag 3g an 18"er

Honestly, I don't really see the point of having a stainless barrel and 5.56 nato chamber. If you want precision go all out.

this is just going to be a cool looking plinking rifle.. i like nato chamber so it wont matter whos ammo i grab to shoot

after this build, the next will be either an ar15 in 6.5, or 6.8 or an ar10.308.. but those are down the road.

The Wylde goes both ways. 5.56 nato, and .223 remington. You can have your cake and eat it too!
