Need help on my AR build!

I'm building my first AR. I have the lower finished. I'm now looking for uppers. I want to get an upper with the barrel but no hand gaurd. The problem is every set up I find like this has a A2 style front sight which I don't want. I'm looking for a 16 inch barrel. Can any one direct me to a good site that has what I'm looking for?

I'm no expert, but I believe it is an easy swap to change out that A2 front sight/gas block for whatever you want.

Here is a good place to start looking at options:

Just buy the parts and put it together.

Uppers like that are kinda scarce.

You can always cut off the FS and grind it smooth with a dremel and blue it! Lots of guys on youtube do it that way and it works great!

I cut the front post sight off mine, ground it down with a Dremel, and shot it with some flat black paint. Easy fix.

The only concern would be the type of handguard you are wanting to use. It would have to be compatible with the installed barrel nut. If the handguard you plan on using has a proprietary barrel nut, the gas block would have to be removed in order to remove the existing barrel nut and to install the one with the handguard.

OP; You're going to need some type of rail, so why not just buy it already assembled?

Or do you want to use some weird type of rail that no one uses in building RTG uppers?
