I can get any length rail that they sale but they do not make an actual mid-length gas system upper. They offer carbine or rifle.

If you really want midlength you should get it. Even if YHM is good quality you really can't compare them to BCM, they're completely different companies with different products. If you compare closely there are lots of differences besides gas system length.

Anyway, it sounds like you're in no rush so why not get a lower and build it up the way you want it and keep looking at uppers, no doubt you'll find a midlength configured the way you want it. I agree it's nice to have matching upper/lower receivers but it's not that big a deal. My ArmaLite has matching receivers but my other two non-matching ARs are actually better rifles.

Don't forget to look at PSA too.
The biggest issue with assembling an AR isn't so much getting the parts together right - it's getting the right parts together.

My last build was a YHM black diamond spector length carbine. new from YHM I think it was $1695, I think I have about $900 in my build. I did mine with YHM hard parts and flip sights, magpul stock, moe+ grip, Magpul mission sling and Topped with a Eotech XPS2. By building I was able to do all the components I wanted and in the FDE and black color scheme I was after.. I love the YHM parts and fit and finish is top knotch.
