    Hey guys, I am looking to build or buy an 18'' upper receiver.


    These are the rules for the build/buy

    -Complete upper must be less than 1000$
    -Must be Sub MOA
    -Must be 18'' barrel, Chrome lined, Cold hammer forged barrel. MPI and HP tested
    -Must have rifle length gas system
    -Must be .223 and 5.56 compatible
    -Nickel boron BCG
    -M4 feed ramps
    -Must have 13'' or greater quadrail
    -Must be a flat top upper

    The limit here is a 1000$ so dont recommend I buy a DDM4 "Becuase its the best ever invented"
    Trying to build a solid MK12 style upper for sub 1000$!

    Lets hear the recommendations. I was looking into CCMG. what do you guys think?

    If you want sub MOA forget chrome lined, for get the CHF.

    You need to look at a Stainless barrel, besides that what a MK12 uses anyways.

    If you want all that for less $1k, then it is really going to be cheap crap to reach that price point.

    I think you might be able to get all for around 1K.
    BHW 18" SS barrel - $250
    Fail Zero BCG - $200 or less
    Basic flat top - $90 ish
    troy 13 " rail - $180 ish
    gas block - $ 50 ish
    Gas tube - $20 ish
    FAssist parts - $30 ish
    dust cover - $20 ish
    CH -$45 ish
    flash hider -$ 40 ish

    in around $925.

    depending of course what you get, and where you shop
    Personally I think the most important components are the barrel, and BCG. the rest can be mil-spec and work just fine, again IMO.

    all that left is glass, and you def will not get that for the under $1K price.
