    I have been ripping my hair out trying to find either a 9 inch or 16 inch Advanced Armament factory upper. I have seen them on many forums but no one has said where they acquired them. I know that PWS, Noveske, Wilson Combat, etc... all make 300 blk uppers, but I like the one from AAC. Any help would be great.

    I just purchased a CMMG 300AAC BLK upper. Couldn't find any AAC uppers available anywhere. Good luck in your quest. Let us know how you do.:) And at the price you find if under $800.

    Delta Company Arms lowers can be had for much cheaper than most others.

    Their guns have been kicking AAC's ass in the accuracy dept too.

    I like mine. Aaron @ DCA is a good guy to deal w/ and helped me a lot w/ the specs on my .300BLK barrel. He's also a vet., disabled vet at that. Id recommend DCA to anyone.

    This is the upper of his that I was thinking about & had a few questions.

    Delta-43, .300 BLK. - Delta Company Arms, LLC Store

    1. I think I want the side charge upper, left (charging handle on left, ejects on right). I'm right handed. My MG uses this layout & I like it alot. It will sport a suppressor eventually. Thoughts or comments?

    2. It'll probably be several months until I can afford the suppressor. It will wear a 51T BLACKOUT mount when that happens. Should I go with this mount initially or go with a KX3 until I get my suppressor?

    Cool looking upper. Left side CH would be fun to try out.

    Id go ahead w/ the 51t Blackout.

    Update - I spoke to Aaron & he answered all of my questions.

    1. He said if you're a right handed shooter, & shooting suppressed, that you'll get gassed badly with the left hand charging handle set-up.

    2. He also stated that an SBR 300 BLK doesn't spue a flame like a 5.56 or 6.8 round would & saw no need for the KX3.

    SO .... I told him to build me that upper & got put on the production list. I went with the right charge/right eject receiver. He doesn't charge you until he's ready to ship your item.

    About 10 weeks, that's their most popular upper.

    Now to find an optic & suppressor.

    1-4x or 3-9x. I have a red dot on mine at the moment but do have a 3-9x waiting for rings.
