Default Upper and lowers

I am building my ar and am having trouble finding a decent priced complete upper assembly in stock anywhere... Any suggestions?... Also has anyone here anything on aero precision lowers?

Just keep searching online. A lot of uppers are now becoming more available. Just gotta search.
Check joeboboutfitters, west fork armory, PSA.

It's really about luck these last few months. I stumbled into a complete Spikes upper with MOE handguard back in Feb when everything was gone and 3x price for $600 shipped to my door. You just have to look in very small, abstract places. A little luck never hurt anything either!

It's a bcm so ur basic bcm is gonna run u 459 $
Right now no hand guard but most ppl will agree that bcm has much more quality parts then psa and practice better business( lately I've heard psa has had some reliability issues in business practices). I ordered from them aprox 2 months ago to a month to get here.
Ordered from bcm last on a Sunday order processed Monday received Friday I own quite a few psa items and a few parts kits by them

There quality dropped after the recent run on guns

My stuff from them from over about a year ago is much nicer, looks like there just trying to get stuff out as quickly as possible now
