    i'm thinkin about pickin this upper up in a trade for my USP.

    -A3 Upper made by AMEETEC ARMS
    -Bolt Carrier made by Dan Young, Young's Manufacturing.... Same person that makes carriers for Les Baer
    -16" M4 profiled stainless steel (black in color) Wilson barrel
    -Front and rear flip up sights and railed free float tube made by YHM
    -Phantom Flash Hider
    -Not sure who actually produced the Tac-Latch and charging handles but they are both nice billet ones not less expensive forged ones.

    eotech doesn't come with it, but he's throwing in the 6-pos stock, a detach carry handle, and a VFG

    I am looking for a nice AR upper also. I will probably end up with the RRA Entry Tac.

    I just picked up that new magize"Complete Semi-Auto Buyers Guide"American Rifleman Guide to Black Rifles.
    Pretty decent read realy.The prices in there,are alil jacked though.Pick it up,if you havent.
    If I had that oppertunity,I would have traded aswell.

    Since this is an AR upper thread.

    With this rifle, can I get a similar look by getting a flat top upper like this:

    Then changing out the handguards?

    I mean, with the bottom upper, all I need to do to make it look like the top is to replace the handguard right? This is minus the EOTech and rear BUIS.

    Yes if you could put the top handguards on the bottom one and it'll look the same.
