If you can get one, I'd go BCM or DD

If you get a magpul hand guard I believe your are required to use a A2 sight since its a drop In ... I really like YHM barrels there about $200 or so... I just picked up a marks armory basic hbar barrel for 100$ I'll see what type of quality it is..I think I saw a regular m4 profile barrel 16 for 100$
I received a omega machinery free float rail today it feels and looks of quality almost an identical design to my yhn rail and only 60$ what a steal! hopefully it holds up

^^^ this! Buy once cry once. Their prices are reasonable for barrels and proven best quality. I personally prefer BCM barrel as it's dimpled on the gas block screw position.
Anyway they both make good barrels and gss blocks.
