Default precision upper

looking to build up a precision upper. thinking about using a kreiger 7.7 twist 20" 223 barrel and cant decide on whose upper to use.

considering this from rogtac (one of our vendors)
Rainier Arms Ultramatch Billet A3 Upper
http://www.rogtac.com/upper-parts/upper-receivers/rainier-arms-ultramatch-billet-a3-upper.html

or this:
VLTOR MUR-1S Upper Receiver w/ Shell Deflector, No Forward Assist
http://www.rogtac.com/upper-parts/upper-receivers/vltor-mur-1s-upper-receiver-w-shell-deflector-no-forward-assist.html

its kinda ugly but no clue if its got m4 cuts or not. i need the upper to be A3 no m4 cuts

scope would be a possible nightforce benchrest 12-42x havent decided on reticle yet

Of the two choices, only the Rainier Arms A3 is without M4 cuts. Looking forward to seeing this build, whether you use parts from me or not! Keep us posted and let me know if I can help you source some parts.

No problem...I can cancel the order and you can order again, or I can issue you a refund of the discount amount. Let me know which you prefer.

Making a precision ar15upper. Been shooting my savage model 10 and cant get past the (its not an ar15 thing). Plus i want to do some league shooting this winter. I think i can putthe old benchrest shooting men to shame with a new fangled ar15. I already shoot better with irons than most of em do with scopes.

Put a good br scope on a quality ar15 upper and open the school room door

Very kind, but I'll go ahead and issue a refund for the discount amount After the charge settles tomorrow, I will be able to submit the refund...You can then expect to see it within 15 days or so. Thanks for the order, Jon!
