    I 'm in the process of buying a good Varmint heavy barrel upper that I can put a front sight on if need be. Any suggestions? Thanks Jason

    Why heavy barrel? You'll find lots of very nice quality ar barrels, but not many do a true heavy I don't think.

    If I had to start over, I'd get Noveske SS barrel. Since I don't shoot that often at all.

    Can't verify the heavy barrel,but the light weight taper is very nice. Nubus on here deals in Blackhole

    Now my other one is a Stag Arms 6H upper Stag Arms and that thing is a tack driver.

    The light weight taper is much easier to handle,which kinda makes it almost or as accurate as the 24" heavy Stag upper,IMHO
    You just don't throw the heavy barreled upper around and shoot.Gotta be bench rested.And need some weight in the butt stock for balance.
