    Windham weaponry has carbine flat top uppers in that price range as does RRA and PSA. Availability is limited at this time, windham is a new player and isn't sold out yet. Definitely worth a look, picked up a stripped barreled upper myself.

    If you can add $158 to your budget a BCM would be my choice.

    Check out PSA. They are affordable and good quality.

    i can't go over 500 bucks cause that's the max limit on my card and im rebuilding my credit (used to have good credit but if ya don't use it you loose it) so I have to use the card to make the purchase

    what bout KB manufacturing? anybody here heard good things about them cause I've never even heard of them other than an ad in shotgun news

    they're the most affordable that I've found they have an upper that fits the look im going for that only costs 435 plus shipping (wonder how much shipping is gonna be?)

    Don't forget to include the local FFL fee from where you go to pick it up.

    Nah. That was a brain fart. For some reason I thought he was talking rifle, even though I know he said upper.

    Im telling you call these guys at 10-8 outfitters , 309-820-1008 . Shipping will be around $20 insured and shipped to your door . Great guys to deal with and they build all their uppers in house . You would be talking less than $450 shipped to your door on a quality built upper .
