    I'm considering using the Barska reflex I have, but I'm as yet undecided.

    Eventually, it will have BUIS, Samson rear, and flip up front YHM sights. :dunno:

    If your going to do that I'd look and see if they have an upper with the gas block rail instead of the A2 front setup.

    That puts me here with detach handle and FSA gas block:

    Still a LOT less than anywhere else I've tried.

    I'm getting closer to exactly what I want with the CMMG build, but Tony's prices are hard to beat, considering all that you get.

    yep, it is subjective. All of the ones listed are just fine for the average civilian who's going to use it for plinking at the range.

    CMMG are good people. I've been out there to their machine shop for a defensive carbine meet, good stuff.
