I have two lowers for an AR-15. I'm looking at two uppers that are 16" mid-length 1:7 twist. Neither comes with BCG or charging handle.

http://www.bravocompanyusa.com/BCM-16-Mid-Length-Upper-Receiver-Group-p/bcm-urg-mid-16.htm

$439 from BCM

http://palmettostatearmory.com/index.php/ar-15-05/complete-uppers/16/psa-16-mid-length-cl-mp-premium-upper.html

$359 from PSA

Which one would you buy?

I would go with the palmetto. Both are chrome lined so why pay more

I went with Spikes Tactical upper instead. Came with BCG which I needed for $500.

Good choice! I'd go with Spike's rather than PSA period!.

I second YHM. Not terribly expensive. BCM makes a good product though.
