TheRealWyattEarp Posted September 19, 2016 Share Posted September 19, 2016 Hey Armory, I need some advice. I am building/looking to buy a 20" rifle barrel or complete upper for the sole purpose of being a hard use duty rifle. It doesn't need moa accuracy, minute-of-badguy is perfectly acceptable. What I need to know is is there any substantial difference between the FN built PSA uppers, BCM's uppers, or the standard gov profile Windham Weaponry A2 barrel. All will need to have the standard front sight base also. I am w aware of BCM's reputation, and that would be the only one of the three that I haven't personally fired rounds through. Are they so significantly better to warrant a purchase from them as opposed to saving a couple hundred on one of the other setups? I have the tools and experience of upper assembly if I decided to go with parts instead of complete assemblies. I consider upper receivers to be basically equal given that they are machined properly. I will be using a YHM if I go barrel only. Last part, bolt carrier groups. Can someone explain to me the difference between a $170 BCM, a $200 Young Manufacturing, and the $100 PSA premium BCG? Is one really any better than the other? This rifle will have an upper end optic on it (Trijicon, Leopold, etc) and the more I save on the rifle (without sacrificing quality) the sooner the optic gets purchased. Thanks again guys!
