Funny how those brands always come up on this forum.

Yep, I own BCM, DD and PSA uppers and can say they all deserve a checkmark.

From everything I've heard Spikes is worthy too. Scionics out of Tucson, AZ as well.

And we can't forget Colt!

I traded for a new RRA Entry Tactical about a year ago. When I got it, I wiped it down and lubed it. So far it has fired about 800 rounds (damn ammo shortage!) with no cleaning. Before heading to the range I have just put a few drops of oil on the BCG. It's digested any ammo I've tried, steel or brass, 5.56 or .223. I've mixed ammo types in the same mag, not one malfunction. I would not hesitate to buy another RRA. Of course I wouldn't hesitate to buy a Colt either!

Excellent choice, sbach.

Keep your Colt lubed, use quality magazines (PMAG's) not aluminum or steel mags, and you shouldn't have any problems. Contrary to all popular belief, the carbine doesn't need to be sparkly clean, but you absolutely must use proper lubrication or you will have problems. If you feel the need to religiously clean something so that all is right with the world focus your attention on the barrel, chamber, and bolt face.

Remember that all mechanical devices eventually fail and purchase replacement parts to deal with eventualities. I would purchase a complete bolt, a firing pin, and a spare buffer spring at a minimum. You can buy an entire BCG if you wish.

If you plan to use the carbine as more than a range toy, invest in a quality sling like a Blue Force Gear quick-adjust two point or something similar.
