Default Stag arms upper

I just ordered a Stag Arms upper to replace my Carbon 15 upper because i hear that they jam often and i wanted a metal upper. this is the one i ordered

Smart move. What did it end up costing?

Ouch, that seems real high for Stag. Can you cancel the order? I hear it's a good upper but at that price you could get BCM.

Not bad....

Edit: I started typing something then erased it as I didn't want to be the first one to say something but Q is correct. I had figured up the cost to replicate the accessories you got w/ the Stag and the BCM could have been had for an extra $107.

Some of us preach a little at times but this goes to show how close the cost of ARs is getting.
