    Can anybody help me find a decent upper? I want a carbine length aluminum rail with either no front sight or a flip up front sight. Thanks for the help.

    Thanks for the input. As far as searching for it on my own I already did that, I just wanted to see if anybody had one like that that they were happy with and knew that it was a good upper. Why can't you ever start a thread without somebody saying something smart. I guess mods can't be held to a higher standard. For the other two posts thanks for an honest answer.

    Just havin fun man. :) CMMG makes some good stuff. Also, You can get the upper you want (bbl. sight, etc.) and get a Midwest Industries free float at a later time.

    The issue was your wording. Your question does not ask for opinions, it asks for us to do your homework.

    I just got a Spikes upper from the site that I listed. I will be shooting it tomorrow for the first time.

    I will agree my wording isn't correct, but I've been looking at uppers for days now. I think there are more companies that make uppers than there are that make whole guns. I have a rock river national match but im wanting something a little smaller.

    have you been on any of the gun forums?

    ar15.com
    m4carbine.net


    some of the top names right now
    bravo company
    noveske
    colt
    Daniel defense
    cmmg
    LMT
    LWRC

    just to name a few

    if you want a higher end gun stay away from 95% of the stuff you see at gun shows or your local sporting goods store aka bushmaster, rock river, dpms

    read up on this thread to get a feel for what you should look for and determine what you need/want
