    Is it a Wilson Combat or Wilson Arms barrel? Wilson Combat's a $275 barrel. Wilson Arms is $140.

    Might be able to get something similar for about $100 more, minus delivery.

    I'm sure it's Wilson arms. That MIGHT be the exact same upper (sure looks identical). I'm just thinking that I almost can't go wrong with a complete upper for $420 as long as it functions properly.

    I got the complete lower for $120... nothing fancy, but with a total investment of $540 how can I go wrong? :tooth:

    Yeah, a complete upper for $420 is a deal.

    You're definitely saving $100 and shipping charges. And for this project I'd probably go with it. Just wanted to let you know what one costs new for a more informed decision.

    If you don't like the upper, it should be easy to get your money back, get it before it is gone.

    I do not want an A3 configuration. Also do not want a pencil thin 16" barrel, 18" minimum, prefer a 20". 1/7 or 1/8 twist is mandatory. I also prefer a free floating handguard. This fits the bill on all counts.

    The SS version you link above is $452.

    You are right that there is a glut of the 16" version out there right now.
