I was looking around for a cheap 16" upper and came across this deal. I am not affiliated with them at all and ordered one for myself last night. Hope this helps someone out.

The only thing I am not sure about is the barrel. I am not familiar with bulldog barrels so its hard for me to say 100% it is worth it. I figure since the bolt and bolt carrier is included I wouldn't be able to find a complete upper for the price. If the barrel is crap then I'll go and buy a barrel and still have a decent upper at a cheap price.

well i email jse surplus about the upper and here is what they said-------


Here is a link to their website. They manufacture over a million barrels each year. They supply quite a few of the large AR manufacturers. The quality is excellent, they rate with Wilson Arms and ER Shaw.

Im going to stick a plum crazy lower on this barrel and do some test. If every thing goes as it should ill have right at $500 in a ar15 without optics. I have alot of buddies saying I cant build a dependable and accurate ar for this price but im out to prove them wrong.....

I'll be interested in your range report as well... I have a Plum Crazy lower on order for a "light weight" and that upper might be just the ticket..I've got plenty of optics lying around for it..

I think I figured out that with this upper shipped it is less than 350 and I can build an ar for about 500. That's not a bad deal at all! If you are looking for an optic busnell makes some decent scopes for pretty cheap money. I'm puttin a 1.5-4.5 3200 on top of this upper.

I was on their website and placing my order and no where did they ask for FFL info, so I didn't go through with it. Does a complete upper like that not have to be sent to an FFL? Just curious.

nope only thing you need a FFL for is the lower. Its the part with the serial number, You can order everything but the lower and have it shiped to the front door

Thanks a million! I think I will get mine ordered along with a Plum Crazy Lower. Should make for a sweet rig for around $500. I have always wanted an AR, but the price tag always scared me away. Now I can test the waters and see how I like them at an affordable price.
