    That's a decent price, it'll go quick.

    BTW, I noticed in the pic the lower is chambered in 5.56 - these will fire .223 rounds as well, right - it's basically the same round, correct?

    5.56 is loaded to a higher pressure. If chambered for 5.56, you can shoot either but other way around is not necessarily true.

    You can shoot .223 in 5.56, but you can't shoot 5.56 in .223.

    Just for clarification, it doesn't matter what the lower says (one of mine says "Cal: Multi"). The lower isn't chambered in anything, it's just a roll mark. It matters what the barrel says. In front of the front site/gas block it should be stamped with the rifling twist and caliber. Then, like everyone else said... a 5.56 barrel can shoot both, but you shouldn't shoot 5.56 in a barrel marked .223.
