    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

    Lowers: Are over-analyzed when it comes to functional quality. Buy a decent one for a good price. If you can get a sexy name (Noveske, Black Rain, Seekins, Umbrella, etc) at a fair price, all the better. But for the most part, a lower is a lower is a lower.

    Uppers: I'd highly recommend shopping at PSA and BCM. Excellent quality:cost ratio with each.

    I have always wanted a nice billet lower but to me they are just to nice to use and I like to use all my rifles , I dont handle one any differently than another . If they get scratched I just remember its a tool not a show piece and thats what keeps me from buying a billet lower . Very nice , very elegant , and very clean looking , they are really a art piece in my book , too nice to use but beautiful to look at .
