Yep. That would be important.

So Ben seriously, the poor fellow starts out looking for a 20" RRA upper with a lo-pro gas block that he finds complete for $585 with free shipping and you end-up trying to sell him on a 14.5" BCM that costs nearly $900 complete. How is that doing him any service?

I retract my comments, Snake. Although I thought it was a good idea, I definitely forgot that RRA includes the BCG in their set up.
That is a pretty expensive oopsie. So, I apologize for that.

Lol i have been looking at BCM for a while and the only reason that im not going for one of them, is because i dont believe they offer any customization, such as ordering it with a lopro gas block. . .and that sort of stuff, or do they?

Edit: Wait a minute, do BCMs not come with a BCG?? in the pictures i noticed they didnt have charging handles :O

I'd recommend calling them and asking them that question to see what they say. I'd also call a local Gumsmith and ask them what they'd charge to convert to low profile.
But remember, as Snake pointed out, the BCM's don't come with a BCG, and that is another 150.

I believe they will, just need to ask them.
